Tamerlane Contracts Overwrite Of Updated Feasibility Study

    BLAINE, WA, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V) is
pleased to announce it has entered into a contract with Pincock, Allen and
Holt to review Tamerlane's updated feasibility study and prepare an updated
NI 43-101 compliant reserve and resource technical report for the Pine Point
Project, located in Canada's Northwest Territories.
    In August 2007, Tamerlane announced the feasibility study and NI 43-101
technical report covering all aspects of infrastructure, development, mining
and processing for the R190 deposit (see August 24, 2007 press release). The
mineral reserves for the R-190 deposit are as follows:

                           R-190 Deposit Reserves

                         Tonnes      Zinc %      Lead %      Zn+Pb%
    R-190 Reserves    1,000,027       11.16        5.49       16.65

    The updated feasibility study and NI 43-101 technical report will
overwrite the reserves and economics of the six deposits located in close
proximity to the R-190 deposit. In November 2007, Tamerlane began a
confirmation drilling program to upgrade resources on the P-499, O-556, X-25,
G-03, W-85 and Z-155 deposits to the measured and indicated resource category.
The resulting updated feasibility study will convert these resources to proven
and probable reserve categories. The indicated and historical resources for
the five deposits are as follows:

                           Indicated Resources(*)

    Deposit              Tonnes      Zinc %      Lead %      Zn+Pb%
    P-499               877,000        6.45        2.88        9.33
    O-556               861,000        4.22        4.32        8.54
    X-25              3,124,000        6.54        2.30        8.84

    (*)     Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have
            demonstrated economic viability.
    (*)(*)  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the
            historical estimate as current mineral resources, and the issuer
            is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral
            resources. The historical estimate should not be relied upon.

    The work is expected to be completed in April. At the completion of the
work, new updated NI 43-101 results will be announced.
    Ross Burns, President & CEO, said: "We are extremely pleased that the
project is proceeding so well. Pincock, Allen and Holt is an industry leader
in their field, and their expertise combined with the efforts Tamerlane's
staff of experienced geologists and engineers will facilitate significant
progress toward our goal of completing project financing and achieving
production as soon as possible."

    "Ross F. Burns"
