Tamija Gold & Diamond Exploration Granted Additional Governmental License & Increase in Territory

HOLLYWOOD, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 11, 2006 -- Tamija Gold & Diamond Exploration, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TMJG), a multi-faceted resource and exploration company specializing in the recovery and exploration of diamonds and gold, announces Tamija Resources Centrafrique, a wholly owned subsidiary, has been granted an additional Reconnaissance License for the exploration of diamonds and gold in the Central African Republic ("C.A.R.") and an enlargement of the originally licensed territory surrounding the city of Bria. The Company filed an application requesting the license for the new area and extended boundaries to the existing license, based on the recommendation of Fernand Nanibet, a C.A.R. Governmental Geologist, and Mathurin Kabassi, a C.A.R. geologist working for the Company.

This recommendation followed their initial survey, with findings that suggested the extended area (4320 km2) would be a likely target of tremendous potential in respect to hosting alluvial diamonds as well as gold reserves. In the case of the newly permitted area of Lobaye-Topia (3095 km2 in the general vicinity of the city of Boda), the geologists suggested that this territory would serve as an excellent complement to TAMIJA's initial license. In support of this addition to TAMIJA's portfolio, is the highly desirable geological characteristic of the Lobaye-Topia coordinates. These coordinates are ideally located in the Carnot Basin, a major formation of sedimentation containing diamonds, which similar to the original licensed territory, is also supplemented with indications of potential gold resources.

Significantly, the two TAMIJA territories now licensed are within the general proximity of the eastern and western borders to the territories held by Aximin, Inc. (a publicly listed mining company). In regard to conducting their ongoing gold exploration, Aximin, Inc. has reported that "...the previously unexplored Archaean greenstone belt in C.A.R. compares in size to some of the major gold producing greenstone belts of the world." The 2005 United States Geological Survey (USGS) report on C.A.R. noted that Aximin, Inc. indicated and inferred resources to be well in excess of one million ounces of gold (exceeding 1 billion U.S. dollars in gross value). From a perspective of potential diamond reserves, the Company's newly permitted area includes a substantial unexploited section and length of the Lobaye River, which has yielded very impressive results to date.

Additionally, TAMIJA has already observed very positive results from artisinal diggers (local labor who recover diamonds and gold, generally using primitive manual methods) working within the new coordinates. In consideration of this mounting geological evidence and TAMIJA's independent research and verification, the Company concluded that the License and expansion of the Bria territory would be very advantageous to the interests of TAMIJA. Pursuant to the C.A.R. Mining Code, the Company's acquisition of this new license is a prerequisite to conducting further geological studies as well as submitting an application for the next entitlement, which is already in progress. With the approval of the next entitlement, TAMIJA would be permitted to commence pre-commercial production operations and conduct further exploration.
