FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

TORONTO, ONTARIO – 19 October 2017, Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation (TSX:TNX)(NYSE MKT:TRX) hereinafter (the “Company”) reports in an article by John Aglionby published today in the Financial Times, “Acacia Mining’s shares soared more than 18 per cent on Thursday after its majority shareholder, Barrick Gold, agreed the Tanzanian government would take a 16 per cent stake in its assets in the east African country to end a six-month dispute over the miner’s operations.” See the Financial Times article attached below in full.

“We believe this settlement is very good news for the Company. The settlement between Barrick and Tanzania represents a major step in furtherance of fairness and equity between the host nation and leaders in the extraction industry. Tanzania and shareholders in the extraction industry can both benefit in a fair distribution of generated mineral profits. We saw a similar structure recently negotiated between Freeport McMoRan and the Indonesian Government; where Indonesia obtained 51% of the Grasberg mine. These are fair relationships between a host nation and investors.” said James E. Sinclair, Executive Chairman.

Sinclair foresaw the necessity of fair dealing and sharing the profits in resource extraction with the host nation and its people. The Company executed its agreement with Tanzania in 2010 regarding the Buckreef mine. The Government of Tanzania through STAMICO owns 45% of the Buckreef mine and shares 45% of the benefits when all costs have been recovered.

“We are confident that the obstacles addressed in the Barrick settlement will reduce the future financing of mining operations exclusively to the fundamentals and economics of the mining projects. The Company’s NI 43-101 Feasibility Study clearly demonstrates the economic feasibility of the Buckreef Project where 1,064,000 ounces of gold are available to be mined.” Sinclair concluded.

3 HOURS AGO by John Aglionby Acacia Mining’s shares soared more than 18 per cent on Thursday after its majority shareholder, Barrick Gold, agreed the Tanzanian government would take a 16 per cent stake in its assets in the east African country to end a six-month dispute over the miner’s operations.

John Thornton, the executive chairman of Barrick, which owns 64 per cent of Acacia, said after talks with government ministers in Tanzania that the company would also pay Tanzania $300m as a sign of good faith.

It was not immediately clear if the government, in return, would lift the demand for Acacia to meet a $190bn demand for unpaid taxes. Acacia operates three mines in Tanzania, which account for the vast majority of its assets. It had scaled back operations at the biggest mine, Bulyanhulu, as a result of the export ban. The dispute started in March when the Tanzanian government banned the export of unprocessed ores in an effort to boost the country’s domestic smelting industry. The government then accused Acacia, one of Africa’s largest gold producers and one of Tanzania’s largest private employers, of illegally under-reporting the amount of metal in its shipments and the tax evasion. Acacia denied any wrongdoing and disputed the Tanzanian revenue authority’s assessments that it owed the government approximately $40bn in unpaid taxes plus a further $150bn in penalties and interest.

Palamagamba Kabudi, Tanzania’s justice and constitutional affairs minister, said Acacia and the government would, in future, split revenues from the three mines 50:50. He said the agreement was in line with the new Tanzanian mining laws passed in July.

Mr Thornton said the deal would be subject to approval from Acacia’s independent shareholders and directors. Acacia, whose shares are still down nearly 60 per cent since the dispute started in early March, said it was still studying the deal reached by Mr Thornton and would issue a statement later on Thursday. Its shares were trading at 216p on Thursday afternoon

Cautionary Note Regarding Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources

The terms “Mineral Reserve”, “Proven Mineral Reserve” and “Probable Mineral Reserve” used in this release are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects under the guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the “CIM”) Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council on August 20, 2000 as may be amended from time to time by the CIM.  These definitions differ from the definitions in the United States Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Guide 7.  In the United States, a mineral reserve is defined as a part of a mineral deposit which could be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time the mineral reserve determination is made.

The terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource”, “Inferred Mineral Resource” used in this release are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with National Instruction 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects under the guidelines set out in the CIM Standards. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

For a detailed discussion of Buckreef resource and reserve estimates and related matters see the Company’s reports, including the Form 20-F Annual Report dated November 25, 2016 and technical reports filed under the Company’s name at our website at: www.TanzanianRoyaltyExploration.com.

Cautionary Note to US Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources

Note to U.S. Investors.  While the terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource,” “indicated mineral resource”, and “inferred mineral resource” are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not defined terms under standards in the United States and normally are not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC.  As such, information contained in this report concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Canadian standards may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S companies in SEC filings.  With respect to “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” there is a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and a great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility.  It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “indicated mineral resource” or “inferred mineral resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category.  Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.

There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements or information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.  Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements or information contained herein.  Except as required by law, we do not expect to update forward-looking statements and information continually as conditions change and you are referred to the full discussion of the Company’s business contained in the Company’s reports filed with the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and the U.S.
