Teryl Resources Receives Additional Significant Gold Assays on the Gil Joint Venture Property, Alaska

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 5, 2009) - Teryl Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TRC)(OTCBB:TRYLF) is pleased to announce that additional significant gold assays have been received from our joint venture partner Fairbanks Gold Mining, Inc. (FGMI), a subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corporation, for the R/C drilling program on the Gil J/V property located in the Fairbanks mining district, Alaska.

A total of 33 R/C drill holes and 6 core drill holes have been completed in the 2009 exploration program which has been budgeted for $1.6 million. Certified assays are pending on all drill holes. The main focus of the drilling is on the Sourdough Ridge zone, which is similar in geology to the Main Gil zone. The Main Gil zone has been drilled extensively in the past over a 3,000 ft strike length with an average grade of .04 ounces gold per ton.



Preliminary assays from the following holes as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ounces Per Grams Per
Hole Number Feet Ton Gold Ton Gold
----------------------------------------------------------------------
GVR-09-540 105' (from 145'-250') .14 4.00

GVR-09-534 75' (from 15'-90') .09 2.50
----------------------------------------------------------------------
GVR-09-523 110' (from 125'-230') .04 1.10
----------------------------------------------------------------------


These drill results are in addition to previously reported assays from a Company News Release dated July 2, 2009.

As of July 2, 2009 the Gil Project is an advanced exploration program controlled by Teryl Resources and joint venture partner, Kinross Gold Corporation. The exploration area is located 19 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska and 8 miles northeast of Alaska's largest gold producer, the Fort Knox Mine (owned by Kinross Gold). The Gil Project consists of three adjacent prospect areas; the Main Gil Zone, the North Gil Zone and Sourdough Ridge.

A total of US$7,500,000 has been expended by the joint venture partners between 1992 and 2008, with Teryl and Kinross accounting for 20% and 80% respectively of total expenditures. Lode prospects at the Gil have been tested by 86 core holes totaling 33,354 feet, 327 reverse circulation drill holes, totaling 93,804 feet, and 21 trenches with a combined length of approximately 7,420 feet.

John Robertson states that the current gold assay results are extremely favorable compared to the adjacent producing Fort Knox Mine values of .03 ounces per ton.
