Drilling at Del Norte Hits High-Grade Silver and Gold

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 18, 2006 -- Teuton Resources Corp. (TSX-V: TUO) (FRANKFURT: TFE) ("Teuton") is pleased to announce final 2006 drill results from the Del Norte property, located 30 km east of the deep-water port of Stewart, British Columbia.

High-grade gold and silver values of up to 26.54 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (0.77 ounce per ton) and 1,208 g/t silver (35.2 ounces per ton) over 1 metre were intersected at depth in the new SP vein. Grab samples from the SP vein on surface returned values of up to 3,910 g/t silver (114 ounces per ton) and 19.5 g/t gold (0.57 ounces per ton).

Two current holes designed to test southward continuity of high-grade silver and gold values in the LG vein-K zone area structure encountered last year in Hole 2005-02 were abandoned before reaching target depth due to complications arising from the glacier-borne drilling platform. The high-grade zone (114 oz/ton silver and 2.0 oz/ton gold over 2.8 ft; reported Nov. 21, 2005) remains to be tested further in a future exploration program.

Complete results from the 11 holes drilled on the Del Norte property are as follows:

The 2006 program was financed and operated by Sabina Silver Corporation ("Sabina"). Sabina has an option to earn a 50% interest in the Del Norte property by spending $2.5 million in exploration. Sabina may increase its interest to 65% by taking the property to the feasibility stage.

Commenting on the 2006 program, Abraham Drost, P. Geo, President of Sabina Silver said: "Establishing a continuum between silver and gold rich-vein breccia type mineralization at Del Norte and precious metal-enriched exhalative mineralization typifying the Eskay Creek deposit remains a priority for a 2007 exploration program at Del Norte."

Pioneer Laboratories of Richmond, British Columbia, an accredited facility, performed all of the analyses. A quality control/quality assurance protocol was used in this program including blanks, duplicates and reference standards. Harvey Klatt, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person for Sabina in charge of the 2006 drilling program.
