    VANCOUVER, Dec. 7 /CNW/ - Tanzanian Royalty wishes to announce that it
has realigned its management structure in Tanzania to facilitate an
aggressive, multi-phased exploration program on its Kigosi Gold Project in
    The Company's President, John Deane, will now focus his exploration
talents exclusively on Kigosi which recently returned the highest grade gold
values ever reported from the property. (See November 26, 2007 News Release).
    According to Tanzanian Royalty Chairman and CEO, Jim Sinclair, "Deane's
in-depth knowledge of Kigosi and its enormous geological potential made him
the only choice as Project Manager."
    "Not only will he bring continuity to this world class exploration
project in terms of management and geological decision making, he will
maintain his critical role as the Company's president with oversight
responsibilities for the remainder of our mineral assets in Tanzania."
    Coincident with the decision to assign Mr. Deane exclusively to the
Kigosi Project, Tanzanian Royalty has appointed Patrick Charles as the
Company's new Exploration Manager for Tanzania commencing January, 2008. Mr.
Charles holds an M.Sc. in geology from the University of Paris and has
completed a Business Management Course at the University of Stellenbosch in
South Africa.
    He has over 20 years work experience in the exploration industry in
various African countries including the Central African Republic, Mozambique,
Namibia, Niger, Burkina Faso, South Africa and Ghana. During 2000 and 2001 he
was the Assistant to the Senior Vice President Exploration of Anglo American
Corporation, Acquisition Division.
    "I had the opportunity to work with Patrick early on in my career at the
Ondundu Gold Deposit in Central Namibia and know him as a hard working,
dedicated geologist whose business management skills will bring much needed
support to the management of our increasingly busy exploration office in
Mwanza, Tanzania," said Mr. Deane.
    "With 154 prospecting licenses in our Tanzanian mineral portfolio - and
what will likely be an open-ended exploration budget for Kigosi in 2008 - both
Mr. Deane and Mr. Charles will be working closely over the next few months to
ensure a smooth transition," added Mr. Sinclair.

    Respectfully Submitted,

    "James E. Sinclair"

    Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
