White Tiger Mining Corp.: Marshall Lake Property Drilling Intersects 100 m of 0.24% Copper, 0.9 Grams/Tonne Silver, Including 20 m of 0.59% Copper and 2.6 Grams/Tonne Silver

WEST VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2011) - White Tiger Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WTC)(FRANKFURT:W0I) (the "Company" or "White Tiger") is pleased to report the assay results from drill hole RMZ 11-25 located 25 metres to the west of drill holes RMZ 11-21 and RMZ 11-23 for its Marshall Lake project. The Marshall Lake Property is a copper, silver and gold exploration project located 30 km west of Nakina, Ontario and is accessible via a good all weather gravel road from Hwy 11 and is 22 km north of the main CNR rail line.

Drill hole RMZ 11-25 intersected the near surface expression of the "Lease Zone" from 5 metres to 105 metres. The drill hole was continued to depth and successfully intersected the "RM Zone" to the north at a depth of 249 metres to 276 metres. The assay results for drill hole RMZ 11-25 are as follows:

From (metres) To (metres) Width (metres) Cu (%) Ag (g/tonne) Au (g/tonne)
RMZ11-25 5 105 100 0.24 0.9 0.012
including 9 23 14 0.39 1.4 0.020
and 55 75 20 0.59 2.6 0.035
including 59 68 9 1.14 5.1 0.058
RMZ11-25 249 276 27 0.32 1.2 0.013
including 258 259 1 1.01 3.1 0.028
and 272 274 2 1.98 8.3 0.112
The true width of the mineralized zones is estimated to be 66% of the mineralized Intersection.

The recently completed core drilling program was designed to further expand the RM Zone with an emphasis on a suspected fold hinge where the mineralization had potential to become thicker and richer. The Company believes that the drilling results to date have established that the RM Zone and Lease Zone, although converging, are a related sequence of mineralized zones. The geological model continues to evolve. The RM Zone remains open to the west, east and north with a projected strike length of the host lithology of over 900 metres with average widths of 25 to 100 metres of copper, silver and gold drill intercepts.

The copper, gold and silver mineralization is hosted in a series of volcanic units of intermediate to felsic composition. The principal host lithology is a coarse air-fall tuff breccia with clasts ranging up to several decimeters in size. Chalcopyrite is dispersed as disseminations, clots and stringers within the breccia matrix. This texture is easily recognized in outcrops recently exposed near the collars of the RM Zone drilling. The mineralization, in its occurrence and style, is similar to portions of known significant dacitic-rhyolitic VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) deposits thought to be transitional into porphyry copper deposits. One of the better known examples of a transitional deposit of this nature is the "Murgul" deposit located in Turkey.

Drill core was split at the Marshall Lake property and sample preparation was done by ALS Chemex in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Pulp samples (<75 microns) were then sent by secure courier to ALS Chemex in North Vancouver, British Columbia and analyzed by ICP spectrometer ("ICP") using a 0.5g representative pulp dissolved in Aqua Regia (3 acid) digestion. All samples grading over 1.0% copper were re-assayed with ore grade ICP and Aqua Regia digestion. Gold analysis was done on a 30 gram sample by fire assay extraction with AA ("Atomic Absorption") finish.

Assays for recently completed core drill holes RMZ 11-20, -22, -26, -27, -28, -29 and -30 are pending and will be released when received and reviewed by the Company.

Previously announced drill hole RMZ 11-23 was collared 25 metres to the south of and beneath drill hole RMZ 11-21, and was designed to test the down dip extension of mineralization in drill hole RMZ 11-21 and the following results were previously announced in the Company's news releases dated April 20, 2011 and May 3, 2011:
