Teryl Resources Corp. Hires Certified Geologist to Evaluate the Gil J/V Gold Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2010) - Teryl Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TRC)(OTCBB:TRYLF) is pleased to announce that Teryl has retained Mark Robinson, a certified and qualified consulting geologist, to complete a feasibility study and a fair value analysis on the Gil J/V in the Fairbanks Mining Division.

Teryl Resources Corp. board of directors concluded that it is very important for Teryl to retain a highly qualified geologist such as Mark Robinson to complete an economic study on the Gil Joint Venture property. This will be key in gauging any future offers, which can then be evaluated.

Phase I - Proposed Scope of Work, as follows:

  1. Examine the tailings from placer mines on Slippery Creek and Lohr Creek to determine if intrusive rocks are present in the drainages. If present, they will be described and sampled, giving an indication of the possible intrusive-hosted mineralization in the area.
  1. Examine the USSR&M ditch line between Slippery Creek and Too Much Gold Creek to determine if intrusive rocks are present in the area of the magnetic low.
  1. Examine the outcrop/subcrop of the "White Schist" north of Sourdough and Gil North. Mineralized rock to be described and sampled.

Phase II - Gil J/V Fair Market Value, as follows:

Phase II will consist of a fair market evaluation, utilizing 3D modeling of the proposed ore body, and a calculation of grade and tonnage contained within that model. The fair market evaluation will be completed by Mark Robinson, a highly qualified consulting geologist, who has first hand information on the Fairbanks Mining District since 1989.

Mark Robinson states, "Once the model is constructed, and grade and tonnage is determined, a mine model is developed and a cost estimate of the development is calculated. Next, a rate of return can be calculated, and the economic viability of the project can be estimated."

John Robertson, President of Teryl Resources Corp., states, "The occurrence of historical production from gold placers on the Gil joint venture suggests that there may be multiple sources of bedrock gold in the area."
