Teras Moves Forward to Earn in on the Cahuilla Gold Project and Issues Shares to Consolidated

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2011) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA): Teras announces that pursuant to the terms of an earn-in agreement (the "Earn-In Agreement") entered into by Teras with Consolidated Goldfields Corporation ("Consolidated") dated February 10, 2010, Teras has formally submitted $800,000US and issued 5,000,000 common shares to Consolidated to satisfy its second year work commitment on the Cahuilla Project. This completes the cash requirements for earning a 65% interest in the Cahuilla Gold Project. The common shares were issued at a deemed price of $0.20 per share and are subject to a four month hold period. 

The Cahuilla Project is a large epithermal, paleo-hot springs system hosting multiple bonanza-grade veins that occur within an extensive body of disseminated gold-silver mineralization. For further information on the Cahuilla project refer to the NI 43-101 technical report entitled "Cahuilla Property 43-101 Technical Report," dated October 25, 2007 prepared by Todd Wakefield, MAusIMM of AMEC E&C Services filed on Sedar on November 15, 2007.

The Company will report assay results from holes 2 and 3 after results are received from hole 3. Phase 1 drilling is planned to resume in the first quarter of 2011. We are currently awaiting approval of our second phase drill permit which consists of 200 additional holes. Phase 2 is planned to extend the continuity of the high grade vein that outcrops on the property and evaluate other high grade veins that were intersected in historical drilling.

"We are very optimistic with respect to moving forward on Cahuilla and anxious to continue our drilling program, especially on the high grade vein as supported by favourable channels samples that we received from a sampling program conducted in May 2010" states Mr. Peter Leger, President & CEO of Teras (please refer to the news release dated June 22, 2010).
