Tamerlane Reports 40.7% Combined Lead-Zinc Over 110 Feet (34 Meters)

    BLAINE, WA, July 10 /CNW/ - Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V)
announced today updated assay results of drill holes that have shown extensive
high-grade lead-zinc mineralization at the Company's Pine Point property,
located in the Northwest Territories, Canada.
    Today's updated assay results are from 3 confirmation holes (TV11, TV12
and TV13) drilled at the R190 deposit for the purpose of providing further
confirmation of core recoveries. The initial results of these holes were
announced on June 12, 2008. However, at that time the results included
21 sections (totaling 105 feet) where zinc was reported greater than 30%, and
an additional 3 sections (totaling 14.5 feet) where lead was reported greater
than 30%. An assay technique designed to accurately measure high grade ore was
subsequently used to establish the precise grade of these sections.
    The updated assay results are summarized below:

       R190-TV11 was drilled at -64 degrees; R190-TV12: -74 degrees;

    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.
