Teras Resources Inc. is a junior mining and exploration company located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. At present, the company holds two properties of interest for gold exploration which are located in Montana, USA, and management is reviewing options to acquire several additional gold targets in the U.S. and Canada. Both properties in Montana are partially exploited small gold mines with publicly available historical data. The Watseka mine site data is currently being reviewed in detail, and non NI43-101 historical reports indicate that the mine has only been partially exploited. Teras intends to carry out a literature review of the historical data and early stage exploration in the immediate district in the spring of 2007.

Teras' other main property of interest is the "Golden Jubilee" property, which consists of a claim block located in Granite County, Montana. The property includes an abandoned gold mine with available historical data indicating a partially exploited replacement style gold vein. A detailed exploration work program and budget has been prepared for this project and feasibility diamond drilling is planned for the spring of 2007, if permits can be acquired. An independent technical report which is NI43-101 compliant will be carried out after the drilling program in the summer of 2007 has been completed.

Teras' vision is to acquire properties with established technical merit that are at or near to the pre-feasibility stage. The company's exploration work will be focused on detailed diamond drilling programs and proving resources with an NI 43-101 compliant resource report.

Dale A. Vitone, B.Sc., P.Eng., is the company's nominated qualified person responsible for monitoring the supervision and quality control of the programs completed on the company's properties. Mr. Vitone has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this news release.

Teras will continue to update shareholders on the progress of future corporate news, financings, and project developments.
