Teras Receives Advanced Drill Permit for Its Cahuilla Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA): Teras is pleased to announce that the Company has received the required permits 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 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 is currently in the process of engaging a core drilling contractor to conduct a much more comprehensive drilling program of the high-grade veins: scheduled to begin as soon as possible. The main purpose of this program will be to test the surface dimensions of the veins and their down dip extensions with a series of gridded core holes to develop continuity and increase the precious metal mineralization which will be defined in a new NI 43-101: anticipated to be completed later this year.

The immediate interests of the company is to core drill the outcropping vein on High Grade Hill and build upon the many high-grade gold/silver intercepts that were encountered in historical drilling as well as the portable core program completed in January 2011. A summary of assay results from the portable core program was reported on the March 01, 2011 press release. The preliminary portable core program consisted of fourteen shallow core holes and was drilled for the purpose of obtaining a precursory look at the gold and silver mineralization in the high-level, banded epithermal vein material. 

The Company, along with its partner Consolidated Goldfields Corp., also plans to initiate a substantial reverse circulation drilling program in the near future that will test many other high-grade veins that have been intersected throughout the project area. In addition, reverse circulation drilling will focus on the development and expansion of the disseminated mineralization that was defined by historic drilling and calculated by Mine Development Associates of Reno, Nevada for Kennecott Corporation in 1995.

"Receiving the drill permit for an additional 200 holes is a very significant step in advancing the Cahuilla Project. This will allow the Company to further define the high grade veins and disseminated precious metals which will substantially add to the existing known mineralization" states Mr. Peter Leger - President and CEO for the Company.

Thomas E. Callicrate B.Sc., Professional Geologist, Vice-President Exploration of the Company, is the Company's nominated qualified person responsible for monitoring the supervision and quality control of the programs completed on the Company's properties. Mr. Callicrate has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this news release.
