Tamerlane Intersects 25.53% Combined Lead-Zinc Over 158 Feet (48 Meters)



    BLAINE, WA, March 27 /CNW/ - Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V)
announced today that it has intersected extensive high-grade lead-zinc
mineralization at the Company's Pine Point property, located in the Northwest
Territories, Canada. Drill hole P499-TV1 returned a significant 158-foot true
vertical thickness of 25.53% combined lead and zinc, including an interval of
63 feet of 33.74% lead and zinc. The results from today's announcement are
summarized below:

        P499-TV1 was drilled at -90 degrees and represents the true vertical
        thickness of the prismatic deposit.

    The results shown above for Deposit P499 include 4 sections where zinc was
reported greater than 30%, and an additional 7.5-foot section where both zinc
and lead were reported greater than 30% (Zn+Pb% (greater than) 60%). An assay
technique designed to accurately measure high grade ore is currently underway
to establish the precise grade of these sections. 30% was used in this report.

    The assay results announced today are part of the confirmation drilling
program commenced in November 2007 for the purpose of converting a portion of
indicated and historical resources into proven and probable reserves.
Additional drill results will be forthcoming as confirmation and in-fill
drilling continue on the property.
    Ross Burns, President & CEO, said: "We are very pleased with the
continued high grade lead and zinc results from the drilling program at Pine
Point. These results confirm the significant resources at Pine Point and will
be incorporated into the updated feasibility study and NI 43-101 technical
report."
    The results herein described have been prepared under the guidance of
Ross F. Burns, P. Geo., LG, President of the Company, who is designated as a
Qualified Person with the ability and authority to verify the authenticity and
validity of the data. The drill program was carried out under the direct
supervision of Mr. Wolfgang Schleiss, M.Sc. Samples and assay results for lead
and zinc quoted herein were prepared by ALS Chemex of Vancouver, BC using
industry standard assay techniques for ore grade lead and zinc mineralization.
