Gold can be found in rivers, seas and land in many parts of the earth. Gold can be melted and shaped, to create any design. It can be alloyed with a number of other metals to increase strength and produce a variety of colors. Gold has extraordinarily high reflective powers that are relied upon in the shielding that protects spacecrafts and satellites from solar radiation and in industrial and medical lasers that use gold-coated reflectors to focus light energy.

Siga Resources Inc, founded in 2007, is based in South Lake Tahoe, California. Siga is a mineral resource exploration and development company. Siga's strategy targets properties that have the potential for near term production and early positive cash flow. Siga's general geographical interest is North and South America.

Siga Resources Inc. President and CEO, Edwin Morrow, is pleased to announced that Bentley Fairview Resources Co. Ltd., of Ontario, Canada, the Joint Venture Partner for the Big Bear Mining Claims located in San Bernardino County, California, has advanced the initial payment for the initiation of a work program on the Big Bear Mining Claims.

This is the initial payment of a $10,000,000 Joint Venture entered by the two companies with the goal of proving the indicated gold resources on the Big Bear claims and if warranted, developing the Big Bear property to possible production. Siga's work program and the beginning of evaluation of the project are underway as of Aug 3, 2011.

The work program will consist of extensive mapping of existing trenches, outcrop, oxidized zones and other previous workings including drill sites. Geochem sampling of large areas of the claim group along with sampling of all pits and trenches will be conforming with previous mapped and sampled areas which returned assays of greater than .01 oz/ton gold in the soil geochem. These areas of greater than .01 oz/ton gold covered a large area of the claim group and give rise to the anticipated total indicated contained ounces of gold which could range from 1 to 2 million ounces.

The Big Bear project is currently controlled under an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the property. It is situated near Lucerne Valley, CA and currently consists of approx 1440 acres (approx 2.25 square miles) of mining claims. The Big Bear Claims are on the North eastern edge of the San Bernardino Mountains. The project area is known historically as the Blackhawk mining District has been a previous producer of gold and silver. The area is believed to contain economically viable gold mineralization, particularly at the current metals prices. Anticipated total contained gold based on existing reports and studies could be in the range of 2 to 3 million ounces.

Siga Resources is also developing the Lucky Thirteen Placer in British Columbia. Currently in a 50/50 Joint Venture, Siga has installed a 50 cubic yard/hour washing and separation plant and associated excavation machinery which is being employed for bulk sample testing to determine recoverable grades and aid design of a larger production facility which could be in place before year's end.
