TORONTO, ONTARIO - Tsodilo Resources Limited (TSX Venture Exchange: TSD) ("Tsodilo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Peter Walker will re-join the Company as Vice President, Exploration effective September 1, 2004.

"Peter brings impressive credentials and significant practical and management experience to our company which enhances our ability to meet the challenges of our Botswana Ngamiland project. Peter has done it all: evaluated diamondiferous kimberlites, expanded diamond resources of existing mines, worked in alluvial and marine diamond mining environments. His extensive open pit mining experience is extremely useful to us as mining diamonds in Botswana will probably be conducted through this scenario. We are pleased to welcome him aboard", commented James M. Bruchs, President & CEO.
