October 23rd, 2017

TORONTO, ONTARIO – 23 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.
