Tanzanian Royalty Postpones AGM to May 28, 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 19, 2015) - Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation (TSX:TNX)(NYSE MKT:TRX) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange has granted the Company's request to postpone its annual general meeting to May 28, 2015.

In conjunction with the on-going development of the Company's Buckreef Gold Mine Project in Tanzania, the Company is actively seeking additional project financing. Such financing could result in the necessity for a shareholder vote. The TSX has therefore granted the extension to avoid the potential duplication of costs associated with having two meetings within a short timeframe.

"We are very pleased with our progress to date, and look forward to providing a comprehensive report to shareholders on the current and subsequent phases of our Buckreef Project," stated James E. Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer.

A Notice of Meeting, Information Circular and form of Proxy for the AGM will be provided in advance of the annual general meeting, to be held May 28, 2015 at 10 a.m. at St. Andrew's Club & Conference Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

Respectfully submitted,

James E. Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer
