Tanzanian Royalty Announces New Gold Discovery on License Held Under Option by MDN Northern Mining

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - The Company is delighted to announce that one of its royalty partners,  MDN Northern Mining, has discovered a brand new gold occurrence on a  prospecting license held under option from Tanzanian Royalty Exploration in  the Tulawaka region of Tanzania.

    "This is the third discovery in this region by MDN which is a testament  to their skills as explorers and project operators," said Jim Sinclair,  Chairman and CEO of Tanzanian Royalty Exploration.

    "We are delighted to have MDN as royalty partners and look forward to  them achieving the same success on our licenses as they did at the nearby  Tulawaka Mine."

    The Isozibi discovery is located about 17 kilometres northwest of the  Tulawaka Gold Mine (Barrick 70%/MDN 30%) process plant. At the present time  it is known to extend for approximately 1.0 kilometre along strike and  across a width of 0.9 kilometres.

    This previously unknown gold occurrence is associated with fracture  zones in iron formations, a particularly attractive environment for the  emplacement of gold deposits.

    The discovery was tested by seven drill fences comprising 26 drill holes for a total of 2,582 metres. All holes were sited to ensure a complete overlap of specific targets. Drill fences were spaced approximately 200 metres apart and the holes were angled at 60 degrees from  the horizontal to an average depth of 70 metres in areas of gentle relief,  and 140 metres on the hill slopes.

    A reverse circulation (RC) drill rig was utilized for the drill program  which precludes the accurate determination of true width and orientation of  the mineralized intersections.

    The most significant drill intersections from this initial drill program are listed in the following table:

    According to MDN Mining, "This new occurrence is being included in the  follow-up drilling program planned to further investigate the gold  mineralization discovered in other locations close to Tulawaka last year."

    Analysis

    Samples from this program were prepared and analyzed by Humac Laboratories in Tanzania. Duplicates, commercial standards and blanks were  inserted into the sample stream and all were reported within acceptable  limits.

    Qualified Person

    The drilling program was carried out under the direction of Geologist  Brian Lloyd and supervised by Carlos Bertoni, P.Geo., a Qualified Person  under NI 43-101.
