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. The results described in this press release conclude the Winter 2007/2008 drill program, in which Tamerlane drilled 3,200 meters in 16 holes.

For 2008, the Company has scheduled an extensive drill program to be completed on the East side of the Buffalo River, where favorable ground conditions facilitate Spring and Summer drilling. Tamerlane expects to drill approximately 5,000 meters in 2008. Additional drill results will be forthcoming.

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.
