Teryl Announces Significant Gold Drill Results on the Kinross/Teryl Gil J/V 2009 Exploration Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2009) - Teryl Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TRC)(OTCBB:TRYLF) is pleased to announce the current $1.6 million dollar exploration program has completed 15,295 feet of drilling, primarily targeting the joint venture Sourdough Ridge prospect near its Gil deposit. The principal goal of the 2009 program is to further delineate the mineralized zone at Sourdough Ridge. The exploration plan was also designed to complete infill drilling in order to gain a better understanding of the continuity of mineralization to aid in calculating an initial NI 43-101 compliant resources estimate. Teryl Resources believes that preliminary drilling results from the 2009 exploration program have the potential to significantly increase the total gold resource of the Gil deposit area. The 2009 exploration program is an important step in achieving Teryl Resource's goal of developing a producing mine in the Fairbanks Mining District.

Kinross Gold (K-TSE), our joint venture partner, is planning on completing a mapping, rock and soil sampling program this year along the eastern portion of the mineralized trend. This effort will be designed to identify additional drill targets. The current drilling along Sourdough Ridge has indicated a mineralized zone at least 1500 feet long which remains open to the east. The Sourdough Ridge zone is adjacent to and east of the Main Gil zone, which is part of the joint venture property. The Main Gil zone has a 2500 foot long mineralized zone with an average of 0.04 ounces gold per ton.

John Robertson states, "Pursuant to our previous 43-101 report completed in 2005 by Curt Freeman, several other exploration targets have been identified but not fully tested on the Gil claims which should increase the potential substantially on the Gil J/V claims."

Qualified Person: Mr. Curtis Freeman, MS, P.Geo., Certified Professional Geologist (#6901), member of the American Institute of Professional Geologists, is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the accuracy of this news release.
