Tanzanian Royalty Reports More Encouraging Gold Results from Luhala Project

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - The remaining assay results from the Phase 4 Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program on the Company's Luhala Gold Project have been received and they confirm that two of its principal zones - Kisunge Central and Kisunge West - join up as predicted.

    James E. Sinclair, Chairman and CEO of Tanzanian Royalty Exploration, describes the results as "extremely encouraging" and he notes that drilling has resumed at Luhala in order to confirm the distribution of gold values within the target area.

    The primary objective of the current drill program is to define a drill indicated resource at Luhala, he said, adding that, "While more drilling remains to be carried out, we are encouraged by the potential to define a bulk minable gold deposit that could be developed in a cost effective and timely fashion."

    Sinclair also pointed out that within its peer group Tanzanian Royalty Exploration is undertaking one of the largest exploration programs on the African continent. "Utilising our own drilling equipment and internally- developed exploration protocols including biogeochem, we are giving shareholders broad exposure to potential mineral discoveries in one of the most prolific gold belts in the world," he said.

    The Phase 4 drill program at Luhala was completed in February and included 40 RC holes representing some 2,519 metres of drilling. The holes were drilled from the Kisunge Central, West, Northeast and Southeast Zones. The Kisunge Central and West Zones now combine to form what is being called the Kisunge Central Zone which has been drilled on a 40 metre by 25 metre grid pattern.

    One hole was drilled on the newly discovered Kiginga anomaly to determine the strike of the mineralisation that was discovered during a Rotary Air Blast (RAB) drill program towards the end of 2005.

    Drilling of the Kisunge East Zones has confirmed the presence of a higher grade zone of rocks that extends from the Kisunge Northeast Zone to west of the Kisunge Southeast Zone. These rocks form a steeply plunging anticlinorium, a regional fold (bend) structure that is composed of smaller folds. This whole zone is now referred to as the Kisunge Main Zone.

    Mapping of one particular rock unit (chert) within this zone indicates a strike potential of approximately 1,200 metres with a steep (-85 degree) dip. The next phase of drilling will be directed at mapping this zone and determining the gold potential within it.

    "We have plenty of targets to keep us busy and having our own drilling equipment and drill crew provides us with enormous flexibility in the field," said the Company's president, John Deane. "It's a recipe for success that few other companies can match," he added. Significant results for Kisunge Central and Kisunge Main Zones are summarised in the tables below. Because of the nature of such drilling techniques, it is not possible to determine the true width and orientation of the mineralised intersections reported in this release.

    Kiginga Discovery

    Further drilling is planned to determine the potential of the Kiginga Discovery where one RC hole returned the following result:
