  1. 1. PRODUCINGANDEXPLORINGQ2 2012 WEBCAST 1
  2. 2. CAUTIONARY STATEMENTThis presentation contains forward looking information, within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation, and forward looking statements, within themeaning of applicable United States securities legislation, which reflects management’s expectations regarding Teranga Gold Corporation’s (“Teranga” or the“Company”) future growth, results of operations (including, without limitation, future production and capital expenditures), performance (both operational andfinancial) and business prospects (including the timing and development of new deposits and the success of exploration activities) and opportunities. Whereverpossible, words such as “plans”, “expects”, “does not expect”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “anticipate” or “does not anticipate”, “believe”,“intend” and similar expressions or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved, havebeen used to identify such forward looking information. Although the forward looking information contained in this presentation reflect management’s current beliefsbased upon information currently available to management and based upon what management believes to be reasonable assumptions, Teranga cannot be certainthat actual results will be consistent with such forward looking information. A number of factors could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differmaterially from the results expressed or implied in the forward looking information, including those listed in the “Risk Factors” section of Teranga’s AnnualInformation Form , dated March 28, 2012 (the “AIF”). These factors should be considered carefully and prospective investors should not place undue reliance onthe forward looking information. Forward looking information necessarily involves significant known and unknown risks, assumptions and uncertainties that maycause Teranga’s actual results, performance, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forwardlooking information. Although Teranga has attempted to identify important risks and factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materiallyfrom those described in the forward looking information, there may be other factors and risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated,estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that the forward looking information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differmaterially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, prospective investors should not place undue reliance on such forward looking information.Teranga expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events orotherwise, except in accordance with applicable securities law.Forward looking information and other information contained herein concerning mineral exploration and management’s general expectations concerning themineral exploration industry are based on estimates prepared by management using data from publicly available industry sources as well as from market researchand industry analysis and on assumptions based on data and knowledge of this industry which management believes to be reasonable. However, this data isinherently imprecise, although generally indicative of relative market positions, market shares and performance characteristics. While management is not aware ofany misstatements regarding any industry data presented herein, mineral exploration involves risks and uncertainties and industry data is subject to change basedon various factors.In addition, please note that statements relating to “reserves” or “resources” are deemed to be forward looking information as they involve the implied assessment,based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the resources and reserves described can be profitably mined in the future. While management has confidencein its projections based on exploration work done to date, the potential quantity and grade disclosed herein is conceptual in nature, and there has been insufficientexploration to define a mineral resource, therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the targets being delineated as a mineral resource.This presentation does not constitute in any way an offer or invitation to subscribe for securities in Teranga pursuant to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and hasnot been lodged with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission. 2

  10. 10. GOVERNMENT RELATIONS5% Contribution Tax • Fiscal stability provision written into Sabodala Mining Concession • New President – supportive of mining industry • Previously served as President of National Assembly, Prime Minister, and Minister of Mines • Potential tax exposure $2.8M to June 30, 2012; ~$10M for 2012 • Teranga to work in Partnership with the Government to help address some of Senegal’s immediate financial needs 10
  11. 11. MINE LICENSE (ML)EXPLORATION FOCUSED• $20M to be spent in 2012, expand pit reserves ON GROWTH• Pit optimization in Feb 2012, defined $1,550/oz pit shell, containing over 2 Moz (Sabodala current reserves at ~1Moz) FOCUSED ON:• Focus on Main Flat Extension (MFE) and Lower Flat Zone (LFZ) – principle gold hosts in Sabodala deposit GROWING• 23,800m drilled during Q2 at Sabodala – primarily MFE RESERVES • Objective: Increase reserves at the Sabodala Pit *At grades of between 1.5 to 2.0 gpt to gold inventory (1) Proximate Statement: This “exploration target” is not a Mineral Resource. While management has confidence in its projections based on exploration work done to date, the potential quantity and grade disclosed herein is conceptual in nature, and there has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource. 11
  12. 12. MINE LICENSE EXPLORATION Main Flat Extension / Lower Flat Zone (“MFE/LFZ”) – program: • Drilling focused on Sabodala Pit • Extend MFE zone down dip to the northwest (1) • Convert inferred resources north of current ultimate pit • Additional deep drilling to develop LFZ mineable resource to depth • Test for extensions of the LFZ to the east • Drill program this year designed to take ultimate pit 150m deeper to ~480m depth • Add upwards of 500,000 – 1,000,000 oz’s(1,2) (1) Potential to expand existing gold mineralization to between 40 and 50 M tonnes at grades of between 1.5 to 2.0 gpt Au for a total inventory of 2.5 to 3.5 Moz (2) This exploration target is not a Mineral Resource. The potential quality and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource.Full drill results are posted at terangagold.com 12
