Tanzanian Royalty Has Retained Venmyn Rand Limited to Prepare Mineral Resource Block Models and Updated Mineral Resource Statements for Tanzanian Royalty's Buckreef Project in Tanzania13:34 EDT Friday, October 19, 2012FSC / Press ReleaseTanzanian Royalty Has Retained Venmyn Rand Limited to Prepare Mineral Resource Block Models and Updated Mineral Resource Statements for Tanzanian Royalty's Buckreef Project in TanzaniaSouth Surrey, British Columbia CANADA, October 19, 2012 /FSC/ - Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corp (TNX - TSX, TRX - American), Venmyn Rand (Pty) Ltd. (Venmyn) has been retained by Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation to prepare Canadian National Instrument (NI 43-101) compliant Mineral Resource block models and Mineral Resource estimates for its Buckreef Project in Tanzania. Venmyn has previously prepared N143-101 Independent Technical Reports (ITR) and a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on the Buckreef Project, which have been published on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR). The PEA has formed the basis of a planned Preliminary Feasibility Study (PFS).The previous ITRs were based on original Hellman and Schofield (2007) resource estimates using Multiple Indicator Kriging (MIK) techniques and in-house modeling programmes. Venmyn utilised the 2007 resource estimates as the basis for the PEA and recommended that new Datamine(tm) block models be constructed for the Buckreef Project to eliminate any incompatibility with mine design scheduling programmes going forward into the PFS and ultimately the "Definitive Feasibility Study" (DFS). In addition, new exploration data from a recently completed Mineral Resource drilling programme is available and will be incorporated into a new and updated Mineral Resource estimate for the project.
