Tectonic Gold Plc: Specimen Hill and Joint Venture Update

TECTONIC GOLD PLC

(“Tectonic Gold” or the “Company”)

SPECIMEN HILL TECHNICAL PROGRESS AND DIAMOND JOINT VENTURE UPDATE

Tectonic Gold plc (TDIM: TTAU), the Intrusive Related Gold System (“IRGS”)
explorer, is pleased to share technical findings from our collaborative
research program with CODES and diamond production results from our Deep Blue
Minerals joint venture in South Africa. 

Specimen Hill CODES Research Highlights:
* Collaborative programme with world leading ore deposit research centre
* Genetic confirmation that copper and gold samples are close to the intrusive
source
* Reaffirms drill targeting and informs plan for higher density drilling
campaign
Deep Blue Production Highlights:
* January production over 220cts
* Ramp up program going well
* Moving into deeper and higher grade ore so expect continued production
increases
Mr. Brett Boynton, Managing Director – Tectonic Gold Plc

“ Tectonic has an ongoing research collaboration with “CODES” (The
Centre for Ore Deposit and Earth Sciences) at the University of Tasmania.
Major gold companies such as Newcrest also work with CODES, so this
collaboration gives Tectonic an open technical forum across industry and
academia.

Using advanced analytics we looked at chemical associations from the rocks at
various depths to build a picture of the temperature and pressure of the gold
and copper bearing fluids that came up with the intrusive to form the deposit
at Specimen Hill. From this we have confirmed, amongst other things, that our
methodical drilling program is moving through the deposit towards the
intrusive source. We will take this information back into the model to further
refine our follow up campaign with higher density drilling for resource
definition.

It is important to get the same positive response from a range of tests to
confirm our thinking. Often explorers hit an intersection of gold and are
encouraged to drill without a clear roadmap and they end up putting in a lot
of unsuccessful holes and running out of money. Working with CODES keeps us
disciplined and on track.

Deep Blue Minerals JV Highlights:

Our joint venture with AIM listed Kazera Global Investments is really coming
into its own now with the production ramp up program progressing well. Initial
production in December was around 50 carats, so delivering this significant
increase in output as we move into the higher-grade zone is an excellent
result. Tectonic has a non-diluting 10% interest in Deep Blue and holds 20
million shares in Kazera, with options for another 20 million shares at
0.5p.”
