Notification of Testing of the completed Buckreef Gravity Recovery Circuit for restart of production

June 16th, 2016

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired June 16, 2016) –Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation (TSX:TNX)(NYSE MKT:TRX) (the “Company”) is providing the following report with respect to the Carbon in Leach (CIL) Gold Recovery Plant Installation at Buckreef.

During its period of force majeure, the Company was unable to perform many functions. Although we were unable to mine and process our gold bearing material, we were not at a complete standstill. We were able to perform the functions which could be safely undertaken and protected by our security services. During the time out, we began installation of the gravity recovery component of the future CIL plant. Over the course of this week we will begin testing the gravity circuit by processing three different ore types; sulphide, transition and oxide. This testing is to insure that the crushers are set up to effectively process the ore types to the required size and to identify any issues that might need correction or recalibration. Once the material has passed the crushers it will then report to the scrubber where it will be turned into a slurry prior to actual gold recoveries using a simple concentrator and shaking table. This will serve to establish a benchmark of free recoverable gold. Samples of each gold bearing material type will be taken and submitted to Mintech Lab in Mwanza to establish the grade of the material tested. As we are able to resume our processing functions now, we will be able to proceed with the new CIL plant without any significant delay as we make the conversion from our former Carbon in Column (CIC) plant to the new plant.
