Tanzanian Royalty Announces a 121% Increase at the Buckreef Main Prospect and a 39.2% Increase for the Entire Buckreef Project, in Oz Contained in the Measured and Indicated Category

Total Measured and Indicated Resources Now Contain Approximately 2.4 Million Ounces

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation (TSX: TNX)(NYSE MKT: TRX) -

Tanzanian Royalty is pleased to provide an updated resource estimate ("Estimate") for the Buckreef Project which has incorporated the results of the drilling program completed in late 2012. The Estimate has been prepared by Venmyn Deloitte (Pty) Ltd. ("Venmyn Deloitte") and is in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101).

The Buckreef Project consists of two areas: the BRMA (Buckreef Mining Area) and the BZMA (Buziba-Busolwa Mining Area). As previously reported, together these two areas had an aggregate NI43-101 compliant Mineral Resource at a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade of Measured Mineral Resources containing 341,000 ounces; Indicated Mineral Resources containing 1,401,000 ounces; and Inferred Mineral Resources containing 987,000 ounces. Aggregate Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources for the two areas at a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade contained 1,742,000 ounces of gold.

The aggregate Estimate for the two areas announced today at a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade, (with changes in brackets) amounts to Measured Mineral Resources containing 577,500 ounces (+ 236,500 oz; +69.4%); Indicated Mineral Resources containing 1,848,000 ounces (+ 447,000 oz; +31.9%); Inferred Mineral Resources containing 824,000 ounces (-163,000 oz; -16.5%). Aggregate Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources for the two areas at a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade contained 2,425,500 ounces of gold (+683,500 oz; +39.2%).

All the changes between the previous mineral resource estimate and the updated mineral resource Estimate are in the BRMA area, as this was the focus of the 2012 drilling program. The Mineral Resource estimate for the BZMA area is unchanged from the previous mineral resource estimate. The BZMA will likely be the focus of a future drilling program.

Details of the previous and updated mineral resource estimates for the BRMA area are set out in the tables below.

As can be seen in the tables above, one of the largest changes between the previous and updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the BRMA area is the improved geological confidence and resultant upgrade in classification categories at Buckreef prospect as well as the definition of a new Mineral Resource in the Eastern porphyry prospect. Measured and indicated resources for the Buckreef prospect contain 1,087,000 ounces compared to 563,000 ounces previously estimated, an increase of 683,500 ounces or approximately 121.4%.

The Company intends to file a NI 43-101 Independent Technical Report for the updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the BRMA within 45 days of the date of this news release.

According to James E. Sinclair, President and CEO, "These encouraging results have increased our confidence in the development potential of the entire Buckreef Project, including the BZMA prospect now targeted for additional drilling. I am impressed by the depth and width of the drilling intercepts, which are characteristic of the more successful projects in Tanzania and will enhance the project's profile within the industry. As a consequence of the new resource estimate, we have initiated the process of de-watering the historical underground Buckreef mine for bulk sampling purposes. The Company congratulates its capable geological team on this achievement."
