Teras Initiates Mobilization of National Drilling to Continue Development of the Cahuilla Gold/Silver Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2013) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA)(OTCQX:TRARF): Teras is pleased to report that National Drilling Company has begun mobilizing two drill rigs and associated ancillary equipment to its Cahuilla project in Imperial County, California to continue the development drill program, which will begin as soon as mobilization is complete.

The primary objective of this next phase of exploration will be focused on the discovery of deeper high grade feeder zone targets that have been delineated by recently obtained geological and geophysical data.

In the July 17, 2013 press release, the Company reported that National would be utilizing a Scrhamm T685WS reverse circulation drill that possesses the capability of drilling more than 1000 meters in depth. Since that time, Teras has determined that core drilling should be conducted for the deeper exploration holes instead of reverse circulation to obtain significantly better quality samples for gold/silver analyses and more detailed down-hole geological information.

As a result, the Company has now engaged both a Schramm T450GT reverse circulation and an Atlas-Capco CS14 core drill rig which will be used to test the deeper feeder vein targets and continue development of the shallower precious metal resource expansion areas. Procedures for completing the deeper drill holes will include employing the reverse circulation rig (Schramm T450GT) to initiate pre-collared drilling depths from 50 to 300 meters. The pilot or "pre-collared holes" will then be cased with steel rods to total depth and re-entered by the core drill. Core samples will be recovered from the remainder of the hole, which could be drilled to depths of more than 600 meters depending upon the down-hole geology.

In addition, the Teras technical team and its advisors met in Reno, Nevada at the office of Zonge International on August 13th and 14th to review all of the detailed Cahuilla geological and geophysical data with the focus of fine tuning the selection of the deeper high grade vein targets. Multiple types of data were used in the exercise to optimize the probability of discovering the high grade source of precious metal mineralization. Upon conclusion of the meeting, the consensus from the team was very positive reinforcing the selected locations of the deep holes as shown on the following map (purple):

Peter Leger, President and CEO of Teras Resources, commented, "After numerous strategic and technical meetings and discussions with our technical team and geological consultants along with National drilling personnel, the Company has determined that core drilling of the deeper high grade feeder vein targets will provide far superior samples for assaying as well as an immediate visual description of the material being extracted. Of equal importance will be the assembling of detailed geologic information that will improve our understanding of the gold/silver epithermal system at depth and assist in guiding our deeper high grade feeder vein exploration program to achieve a successful outcome."

About Teras

The Company is focused on developing its Cahuilla project located in Imperial County, California. The project encompasses an area of at least 3 km by 1.5 km and demonstrates the potential for a large-scale, bulk mining operation consisting of altered and mineralized sedimentary and volcanic host rocks with numerous sheeted high-grade quartz veins. Teras filed a NI 43-101 compliant technical report with an indicated resource of 1.2 million plus ounces of gold and 11 million plus ounces of silver on its Cahuilla project (70.148 million tons at an average grade of 0.015 ounces per ton gold and 0.17 ounces per ton silver with a cutoff of 0.008 ounces per ton gold). The Company has an aggressive plan to increase the resource and develop the project for future mining operations.
