TweetThis! Tanzanian Royalty Concludes Definitive Agreement With Kazakh-Funded Company

Tanzanian Royalty is pleased to announce the signing of a Royalty Agreement with Kazakh Africa Mining  Ltd. for its 21 Mwadui Project Area diamond licenses in the Lake Victoria Greenstone Belt of Tanzania.

Two of Kazakh Africa's directors hold prominent positions with the Almatyenergoservice Ltd., a Kazakhstan-based energy company. Kazakhstan is the largest of the former Soviet republics after Russia and it possesses enormous fossil fuel reserves. Its industrial sector relies heavily on the extraction and processing of natural resources.

The world famous Williamson diamond mine, which hosts the Mwadui kimberlite, the largest, economic diamondiferous kimberlite ever discovered, is centrally located within the Mwadui Project Area.

According to Tanzanian Royalty Chairman and CEO, Jim Sinclair, "The agreement with Kazakh Africa Mining fits strategically into the Company's strategy of developing business relationships with entrepreneurial-minded, independent thinking, technically competent industry partners who share our vision of the mineral potential in Tanzania."

"While the business climate in the minerals sector has certainly slowed, we see no concerns expressed by partners about the long term prospects for mineral commodities. The willingness to consummate deals is there, it'sjust a question of immediate corporate priorities and, of course, timing,"  he emphasized.

"We are especially interested in doing business with emerging economies whose leaders think longer term and where industrialization programs have been put into place that are unencumbered by high risk, short term,politically expedient policies that are so pervasive in the West. In myopinion, these type alliances will be the gold standard by which players
in our market segment will be measured in the years ahead."

The Mwadui licenses are known to host alluvial gravels whose economic potential will be evaluated by Kazakh Africa Mining in future work programs. Alluvial diamonds accumulate in gravels because of their inert chemical nature, their hardness, and their relatively high specific gravity. The type of diamond deposits that dominate the Mwadui area fall into the alluvial variety. Geologists believe these deposits were likely concentrated by the weathering and erosion of the Mwadui and its satellitekimberlite pipes.

Kazakh Africa Mining can acquire a 100% interest on the licenses by fulfilling various Option payments whereby Tanzanian Royalty will then receive a GORR (Gross Overriding Royalty) of 1.5% on all diamonds sold.

Respectfully Submitted,
"James E. Sinclair"
