Tamerlane Intersects 30.15% combined Lead-Zinc over 105 feet (32 meters) and 14% combined
Lead-Zinc over 150 feet (45.7 meters)


Blaine, WA: Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V)
announced today that it has intersected extensive high-grade lead-zinc mineralization at the Company’s Pine Point property, located in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Drill hole Z155-TV2 returned a significant 105-foot true vertical thickness of 30.15% combined lead and zinc, including an interval of 65 feet of 41.44% lead and zinc. Hole Z155-TV3 intersected high-grade of 14.08% combined lead and zinc over a 150-foot interval (true vertical thickness 148 feet) and hole Z155-TV4 intercepted 11.52% combined lead and zinc over 100-foot interval (91.6 feet true vertical thickness). The results from today’s announcement are summarized below:

As previously announced, the Company will first mine the R190 deposit at Pine Point, which has proven reserves of 1,000,027 tonnes at a grade of 11.16% zinc and 5.49% lead (ref: August 24, 2007 Tamerlane press release).

Tamerlane completed the feasibility study for the R190 deposit in August 2007, and is now in the process of completing an updated feasibility study that will include NI 43-101 compliant reserves / resources and mine plans for 5 additional deposits in close proximity to R190. These deposits will be accessed using infrastructure developed at R190.

The assay results announced today are part of the confirmation drilling program commenced in November 2007 for the purpose of converting a portion of indicated and historical resources into proven and probable reserves. Additional drill results will be forthcoming as confirmation and in-fill drilling continue on the property. Tamerlane will announce the updated NI 43-101 technical report and feasibility study when the current drilling program is complete and the subsequent reports are reviewed and overwritten by third party technical consultants.

The Pine Point Property’s remaining historical* resources, totaling 50.9 million tonnes at a grade of 3.84% zinc and 1.24 % lead, will be the target of a 2008 confirmation drilling program scheduled to begin January 22, 2008.

*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 upon.


Ross Burns, President & CEO, said: “Thick, high-grade, lead-zinc intersections such as these plus the existing infrastructure, which includes paved roads, hydro and access to the railroad gives Pine Point everything it needs to become one of Canada’s most profitable base metal mines.”

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, B.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.
