Taipan Resources Inc. Announces Completion of FTG Survey on Block 2B Onshore 
NAIROBI, KENYA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/13 -- Taipan Resources Inc.
("Taipan" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TPN) is pleased to announce
that the block wide full tensor gradiometry survey (FTG) on Block 2B
in Kenya has been completed.  
With the completion of the FTG survey and recent 439 km 2D seismic
survey, Taipan has completed the work program for the Initial
Exploration Period on Block 2B. The First Additional Exploration
Period for Block 2B commences on June 2, 2013 with a term of two
Mr. Maxwell Birley CEO commented, "The initial results of the 2D
seismic and FTG data acquired on Block 2B look very encouraging. The
Anza Basin is one of the largest Tertiary-age rift-basins of the East
African Rift system which contains multi-billion barrel oil
discoveries. We continue to believe based on gravity, magnetic and
seismic data that the most attractive area of the Anza Basin is
located on Block 2B. Recent proprietary geochemistry work completed
by Taipan also demonstrates that there is excellent quality Tertiary
oil-prone source rock present in the Anza Basin in the region of
Block 2B."
