Teras Receives Additional Drill Permit Totaling 420 Holes on Its Cahuilla Gold/Silver Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA): Teras is pleased to announce that the Company has obtained approval of its second Environmental Assessment to drill an additional 200 holes at its Cahuilla gold-silver project in Imperial County, California. The Cahuilla Project is a large epithermal, paleo-hot springs system hosting multiple high 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 November 15, 2007.

On October 24, 2011, Teras was granted approval to drill an additional 200 holes at Cahuilla, while in April of this year; the Company received an earlier permit for 200 holes. Therefore, Teras is now authorized to drill approximately 400 holes; the primary objective is to significantly expand the existing high grade and disseminated gold-silver mineralization that has been delineated from historic and recent drilling.

The Company has permitted a total of 420 drill holes at Cahuilla since obtaining the initial Earn-in Agreement with Consolidated Goldfields on February 10, 2010 and has drilled 22 core and reverse circulation holes since that time. Teras is currently conducting a substantial reverse circulation program that will consist of a minimum of 100 holes totaling over 20,000 meters. One drill is currently operating at the Cahuilla site while a second drill is scheduled to begin in December of this year.

Upon receiving the new permits, the President and CEO of Teras Resources Peter Leger stated "We feel the approval of this drill permit provides us the opportunity to complete the number of drill holes required to build a substantial gold/silver mineralization model and issue results in a new NI 43-101 report. We are very pleased with the progress to date at Cahuilla in both the drill permits received and laboratory results. With the approval of these additional drill holes, we will be looking at enhancing our drill program further by adding additional drill rigs in 2012. This will allow us to complete our goal on a much timelier basis."
