Drilling In East Porphyry Area At Tanzanian Royalty’s Buckreef Project Confirms Existence Of New Gold Zone

Tanzanian Royalty wishes to report that it has received impressive assay results from the ongoing diamond and reverse circulation (RC) drilling programs on the Eastern Porphyry Prospect at its Buckreef Gold Project in the Lake Victoria goldfields of Tanzania. The drilling programs commenced in September 2011.

According to Joseph K. Kahama, Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, “The drill program has served to verify the significance of the results obtained by previous operators including IAMGOLD which were not in the public domain but were discovered during our Buckreef data review process.”

“The latest drill results not only support and enhance the earlier drill programs, they confirm the existence of a fifth gold zone at Buckreef along with the potential to enhance our production expectations for this development stage gold project.”

Highlights from the recent drill program are included in the following table:

The Buckreef Project consists of four prospects, namely the historic Buckreef Gold Mine at the western limit of the project area, the Tembo and Bingwa prospects, and the Buziba prospect 20km to the east. The Eastern Porphyry prospect is located some 800m in the footwall of the Main Zone of the historic Buckreef mine which operated briefly as an underground gold producer.
