    VANCOUVER, Dec. 6 /CNW/ - Tanzanian Royalty is pleased to announce that
The Scowcroft Group has agreed to assist the Company in regard to identifying
and negotiating partnership arrangements with qualified third parties for its
gold and base metal exploration assets in the Republic of Tanzania.
    The Scowcroft Group is managed directly by Brent Scowcroft, former
National Security Advisor to President George H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford. The
company's principals bring extensive experience in business and government,
coupled with extraordinary regional expertise in Asia, Latin America, Africa,
Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. Additional

company's website at:
    According to Tanzanian Royalty Chairman and CEO, James E. Sinclair, the
Scowcroft Group will provide guidance and research assistance relating to
negotiations that have been taking place with one or more parties. In
addition, Scowcroft will assist in searching out Asian, Middle Eastern and
other companies that are interested in the gold and nickel production
potential of Tanzania.
    Scowcroft has also agreed to assist Tanzanian Royalty in determining
suitable financing options for the exploration and development of its Kigosi
Project which recently returned some of the best gold values ever reported
from the Lake Victoria Goldfields of Tanzania.
    "We are delighted that an advisory group of Scowcroft's caliber has
agreed to take on this assignment," Sinclair said. "At the same time, we
recognize that they are uniquely qualified to advise the Company with respect
to the cultural nuances that are so important in concluding mutually
beneficial partnerships with corporate entities from regions that are actively
seeking to develop new sources of supply for key industrial commodities."

    Respectfully Submitted,

    "James Sinclair"

    Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
