Tamerlane Reports 11.2% Combined Lead-Zinc Over 32 Feet (10 Meters)

    BLAINE, WA, July 25 /CNW/ - Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V)
announced today new assay results of drill holes that confirm historic
mineralization of the M67 Deposit, and further high-grade lead-zinc
mineralization at the Company's Pine Point property, located in the Northwest
Territories, Canada.
    Today's assay results are from three holes drilled at the M-67 deposit
for the purpose of upgrading known historic resources to NI43-101 measured and
indicated resources which can then be used for future feasibility studies. The
Pine Point Property's remaining historical(*) resources total 50.9 million
tonnes at a grade of 3.84% zinc and 1.24 % lead.
    The M-67 Deposit is located along the main trend of the Pine Point
District within an area of open pit mining conducted by Cominco from 1965 to
1987. M-67 is a shallow tabular deposit located at depths between 70 and 110
meters. (*)Historic resources indicated a remaining 1.5 million tonnes grading
5.6% zinc and 1.1% lead.
    Tabular deposits are among the most common deposit types in the Pine
Point District and are deposited in long sinuous karst caverns following
underground streams. This style of mineralization has been mined successfully
by both open pit and underground methods at Pine Point. Historically, a total
of 13,480,900 tonnes grading 5.6% zinc and 1.7% lead have been mined in
tabular deposits.

    (*)Note:  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the
              historical estimate as current mineral resources, the issuer is
              not treating the historical estimate as current mineral
              resources and the historical estimate should not be relied

    The assay results are shown below:

    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.
    Ross Burns, President & CEO, said: "We are extremely pleased with these
results because they provide added confidence in the 50 million tonnes of
remaining resources currently in the historic resource category."
