Tanzanian Royalty Prioritizes Exploration Targets in Kibara Nickel Belt

Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Trade Symbol: TSX: TNX AMEX: TRE The Company is pleased to report that it has prioritized exploration targets on its holdings in the Kibara Nickel Belt in Tanzania following an examination of historical data for the prospecting licenses. The Kibara belt hosts the Kabanga nickel deposit (Barrick Gold) which was discovered by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) during the 1970s. The discovery was made following a comprehensive geochemical and geophysical program that identified a chain of coincident airborne magnetic and geochemical anomalies within a 20-30 kilometre wide northeasterly trending belt that extends for over 200 kilometres from Burundi in the south, through western Tanzania, to Uganda in the north. In 2004, the Company recognized that base metal prices were set to move substantially higher and applied for open ground within the Kibara nickel belt that was considered to be a favorable host for magnetic anomalies. The Company's seven prospecting licenses represents a combined area of 4,434 square kilometers within the Kibara Fold Belt of northwestern Tanzania. One of the Company's prospecting licenses is located within a zone of two parallel magnetic highs that extends down to the Kabanga Nickel deposit, while another license hosts a 50 kilometre long magnetic anomaly with a geophysical signature of similar intensity to Kabanga. Moderate nickel-in-soil anomalies are evident on some of the properties as well. "Tanzania's nickel potential is world class and the country's proximity to Asian markets will be a major driver of this segment of its minerals industry for many years to come," said Jim Sinclair, Chairman and CEO of Tanzanian Royalty. "The Company's nickel holdings will account for a major part of our exploration budget in the years ahead and we are optimistic that our exploration efforts will produce tangible results for shareholders," he added.
