Douglas Lake Minerals hires alluvial expert for Mbwemkuru project

    VANCOUVER, August 5 /CNW/ - Douglas Lake Minerals Inc. (OTC BB: DLKM /
Frankfurt: D6O.F) announces that after an intensive search, the Company has
hired Tanzanian Mineral Exploration (TANZMINEX), a geological consulting firm
based in Arusha, Tanzania, specializing in alluvial deposits. TANZMINEX will
immediately take over all project management responsibilities of Douglas
Lake's Mbwemkuru project working closely with the Company's technical team.
    TANZMINEX has a permanent staff of 14 Tanzanians including 4 graduate
geologists, lawyers, mechanics, and skilled exploration workers. The team is
headed up by Australian Geologist Ross McMaster Bsc, MAusIMM, who is defined
as a Competent Person (JORC Compliant) for the preparation of Resource
Statements. TANZMINEX has consulted for dozens of mining companies including
De Beers.
    Douglas Lake's Management sees the hiring of TANZMINEX as a crucial step
in the ongoing development of the Mbwemkuru Alluvial Gold Project. Under the
Tanzanian mining act, a resource must be defined on at least part of the
property before a mining license will be issued. Not only does TANZMINEX have
a qualified person to write the Resource Statement, and the necessary
staffing, TANZMINEX also has the exploration equipment available to complete
the project through to production, including:

    -   A fleet of 10 - 4WD field vehicles including heavy camp and service
    -   Truck mounted auger drill
    -   7.5 inch Knelson Concentrator
    -   12 inch Knelson Concentrator Pilot Plant for bulk testing of gold
    -   Full range of sampling and mapping equipment

    TANZMINEX'S experience in working with alluvial projects, being based in
Tanzania, understanding of the local language and customs, and the immediate
fit to the existing technical team, were key factors in its being selected.
