Blaine, WA: 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:
