Tamija Gold & Diamond Exploration, Inc. Announces the Appointment of Carey Bloch as Its President and Chief Operating Officer

HOLLYWOOD, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 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, is pleased to announce that Mr. Carey Bloch, recently agreed to serve as the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company.

Mr. Bloch's, mining experience has been partly derived through his ownership role of "NBD," a South African based mining management and services company. Past operations of NBD have included consulting services to various mining projects in South Africa, Cameroon and Sierra Leone. Most notably, Mr. Bloch had assisted and then led the direction of successful operations at the Galputs Mine in Namaqualand, South Africa. Mr. Bloch also holds a licence to trade rough diamonds in the South Africa Market. This license will enable TMJG access to explore and identify profitable opportunities in an otherwise restrictive but very desirable marketplace.

Following multiple visits to the Central African Republic ("C.A.R.") as a consultant, Mr. Bloch stated, "After observing and evaluating TAMIJA's potential future value and the strong prospects that its portfolio may produce significant discoveries, I am most enthused and honored to lead the development of TAMIJA's gold and diamond mining operations. I do not know of any comparably sized companies and even few of larger size, with such exciting potential for diamond and gold mining as that of TAMIJA's position within selected newly developing areas of C.A.R." Last week, Mr. Bloch attended the ELECTRA Mining Expo in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the show, which is one of the world's largest for the mining industry, Mr. Bloch reviewed various possibilities for the deployment of the newest advances in equipment. This equipment could be integrated into the operational plan for the Company's C.A.R. territories as well as other projects currently under TAMIJA's consideration.
