Northern Tiger Resources Samples 8.5 g/t Gold Over 6.8 Metres

Northern Tiger Resources Samples 8.5 g/t Gold Over 6.8 Metres at
Sprogge Project, Yukon 
EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Northern Tiger
Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR)
is pleased to announce that trenching on the Sprogge Project has
returned assays up to 8.5 g/t gold over 6.8 metres, including 40.5
g/t gold over 1.0 metre. The Sprogge Property is adjacent to the
Company's 3Ace Project in the southeast Yukon, where 2012 drilling
included intercepts of 1.5 g/t gold over 45.4 metres and 3.6 g/t gold
over 8.6 metres (see news release dated October 31, 2012). In
addition, the Company has renegotiated its option agreement with
Alexco Resource Corp. (TSX: AXR, NYSE-Amex: AXU) and Newmont Canada
Corporation, a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM)
(the "Vendors").  
"The trenching and channel sampling program verified three structures
with significant gold mineralization," says Greg Hayes, President of
Northern Tiger. "The Meadow and Ridge Zone West structures in
particular are now priority drill-ready targets within the larger two
kilometer long trend of mineralization and extensive hydrothermal
alteration outlined at Sprogge." 
The Sprogge Property's geology is similar to that at 3Ace, and
includes a thick succession of interbedded calcareous sandstone,
quartz pebble conglomerate, and phyllite. The sedimentary rocks are
folded and form a large anticline in the central portion of the
property. The fold system was subsequently overprinted by southwest
and west-striking brittle faults which control the observed
distribution of hydrothermal alteration, mineralization, and
associated quartz vein systems. Trenching or channel sampling were
conducted at three locations during the 2012 exploration program. 
Meadow Zone 
Trenching at the Meadow Zone exposed a 2 metre wide, steeply-dipping,
southwest-striking brittle fault zone that crosscuts a thin-bedded
siltstone unit. The core of the fault zone is comprised of
chlorite-muscovite-scorodite altered clay fault gouge. Chip samples
from across this zone yielded a composite of 8.5 g/t over 6.8 metres.
A second trench, two metres to the south, was also mineralized,
indicating the presence of a steeply-dipping, 13 metre wide zone of
hydrothermal alteration 
and gold mineralization. Significant chip
sample results include: 


 
--  8.5 g/t gold over 6.8 metres, including 40.5 g/t gold over 1.0 metres. 
--  0.8 g/t gold over 3.9 metres 

 
Ridge Zone West 
The Ridge Zone West is located 225 metres southwest of the Meadow
Zone, and is comprised of arsenopyrite and clay alteration hosted by
a cataclasite unit within a 15 metre wide southwest-striking brittle
fault zone. Channel samples were collected from existing outcrops
across the strike of the fault zone and demonstrate the presence of
gold mineralization and an associated zone of intense hydrothermal
alteration. Significant channel sample results include: 


 
--  4.6 g/t gold over 1.0 metre 
--  7.1 g/t gold over 1.8 metres 
--  2.2 g/t gold over 2.6 metres 
--  2.0 g/t gold over 2.6 metres 

 
Ridge Zone East 
The Ridge Zone East is located 850 metres southeast of the Meadow
Zone and is characterized by quartz tension vein arrays formed within
steeply-dipping, west-striking brittle-ductile shear zones that
cross-cut a thick package of quartz pebble conglomerate. Stockwork
quartz veins are developed outside the narrow high-strain shear
zones, within the strongly fractured wall rock. Scorodite alteration
and visible arsenopyrite is distributed along fractures and within
quartz veins. Significant channel sample results include: 


 
--  7.6 g/t gold over 2.5 metres 
--  0.4 g/t gold over 2.9 metres 

 
Option Agreement Amendment 
The Sprogge Property Option Agreement has been amended to extend
certain timelines for making cash payments and exploration
expenditures. Under the amended terms, the Company will be required
to make the following payments to the Vendors to complete the option: 


 
i.  $200,000 on or before March 3, 2014 
ii. $250,000 on or before March 3, 2015 

 
The Company is also required to incur additional exploration
expenditures as follows: 


 
i.  $300,000 on or before December 31, 2013 
ii. $300,000 on or before December 31, 2014 
iii.$500,000 on or before December 31, 2015 

 
Northern Tiger has the option to earn a 100% interest in the
property. The Vendors retain a 2% net smelter return interest (NSR)
on the property, and Northern Tiger can purchase 1% of the NSR for
$1,000,000.  
This News Release has been reviewed and approved by Dennis Ouellette,
B.Sc., P.Geol., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. All rock
samples were analyzed by Inspectorate America Corporation of
Richmond, British Columbia using 50 gram fire assay and 50-element,
4-acid ICP analysis.  
Northern Tiger Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is a Canadian-based
resource exploration company focused on gold and copper exploration
in the Yukon, where it has a strong portfolio of projects. Drilling
has intersected 4.6 g/t gold over 35.0 metres (including 106.2 g/t
gold over 1.0 metre) at the Company's flagship 3Ace Project in
southeast Yukon. The Sonora Gulch copper-gold-silver porphyry project
in central Yukon also has also returned significant drill results,
including 0.45 g/t gold and 3.0 g/t silver over 234.0 metres.
