About Tanzanian Gold Corporation
Tanzanian Gold Corporation is building a world class gold mine at the Buckreef Project in Tanzania. An ongoing drill program along the continuously mineralized 1.2km long Buckreef Shear Zone has, to date, more than doubled the size of measured and indicated resources to 2.3 million ounces of gold. NI 43-101 compliant exploration mining targets contain the potential to add up to another 2 million ounces of gold to the Buckreef resources. Tanzanian Gold is rapidly advancing on three value-creating tracks, simultaneously: 1. Gold production from an oxide processing plant to begin by the middle of May , to operate as a stand-alone plant and mine, separately from the full life of the larger mining and gold sulphide processing operation; 2. The company moves to Final Feasibility for the gold sulphide operation at Buckreef and now proposes a design more than 3 times larger than modelled in the Pre-Feasibility Study of 2018, and which could produce 150,000 to 175,000 ounces of gold annually. 3. The company has begun Ultra-Deep Drilling and completed a Level 1 stope design to consider an underground gold mining component at Buckreef.
