697 Square Miles of Claims Staked in Northwestern British Columbia

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Teuton Resources Corp. ("Teuton") (TSX-V: TUO) (FRANKFURT: TFE) is pleased to announce that it has staked a very large area of claims extending northwest from the Eskay and Treaty Creek areas to the Galore Creek area and beyond, all situated in northwestern British Columbia. Altogether 697 square miles of additional claims were acquired, bringing Teuton's total land holdings in the prolific Stewart region to over 1,100 square miles.

The bulk of the new claims lie within a northwest trending belt of rocks extending between two emerging porphyry copper-gold districts, Galore Creek and Sulphurets Creek. The former is located 93 miles north and the latter 40 miles north of the deepwater port of Stewart, BC. Galore Creek hosts two deposits with a global resource (all categories) containing 8.2 million oz. of gold and 7.8 billion lbs of copper. At the southern end of the belt, the Sulphurets Creek district hosts four porphyry deposits with a global resource (all categories) containing 19.5 million oz of gold and 5.0 billion lbs of copper.

Nova Gold Resources Inc. and Teck Cominco have recently announced plans to place the Galore Creek deposit into production by 2012 with a capital cost estimated at $2 billion. New roads and powerlines will be built to accommodate the proposed mine, construction of which will undoubtedly spur exploration of surrounding, geologically prospective areas.

Seabridge Gold Inc. and Silver Standard Resources Inc. control all four porphyry deposits identified to date in the Sulphurets Creek district. The two companies are expected to each drill approximately 15,000 meters in the 2007 field season to test for extensions of mineralization delineated in previous programs. Teuton's pre-existing Treaty Creek property, currently under option to American Creek Reources, lies at the northeast end of this district.

Teuton plans to prospect several key zones of glacial meltback located within its newly acquired claims, to be followed by airborne geophysical surveys. This work will be in addition to the six drill programs which are currently slated for its Treaty Creek, Midas/Del Norte, Fiji, Konkin Silver, Leduc Silver and Orion properties, also situated within the Stewart mining camp.
