Tan Range Announces Sample Results from Kibara Project in Tanzania

    Vancouver, British Columbia (ots/PRNewswire) - The Company is pleased to announce preliminary sampling results from the  Nyakona Hill area on its Kibara project in the Lake Victoria goldfields of northwest Tanzania.

    Following up on gold anomalies previously recognized by regional BLEG  sampling and on high copper and gold values from one grab sample in March and  June of 2004, field crews collected 12 grab samples, mostly as float, which  were submitted for analysis. Many of these samples were noted in the field to  have high copper concentrations.

    In addition, a 100m x 100m grid was established over the initial copper- gold anomaly and soil samples were collected for multi-element analysis.  Assessment of this multi-element data is still in progress but maximum values  of 0.198 ppm and 2760 ppm were observed for gold and copper respectively.

      The grab sampling yielded the following assay results:

    According to the Company's President, John Deane, "the occurrence on  Nyakona hill would appear to be structurally-hosted rather than stratigraphic," while observing that a copper-gold association occurs at  Barrick's Bulyanhulu mine and Chocolate Reef deposit.

    Jim Sinclair, the Company's Chairman and CEO, described the results as  "highly encouraging" while noting that follow-up work will include a  biogeochemistry survey and drilling.

    "This is one of many high potential targets that we intend to aggressively evaluate immediately after our new drill rig arrives in early  2005," he said.
