Teras Resources Pleased With Diamond Drilling Progress at Cahuilla

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA) announces that the Company is pleased with the progress of its Phase 1 diamond drilling program at the 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 see 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.

A total of twenty holes have been permitted for the Phase 1 diamond drill program and five holes will initially be completed totaling approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters). The main purpose of this initial core drilling program will be to test the continuity of shallow high grade gold-silver veins which were intersected in historical drilling. The goal of the program is to expand the existing non-NI 43-101 compliant historical gold resource, as defined by Mine Development Associates in October 1996, and use the new drill information with the goal of calculating a mineral resource that will be NI 43-101 compliant. 

The Company is anticipating delivery of the first hole results to a certified lab in early October with initial assay results expected in November 2010. Permitting is underway for the Phase 2 program which, assuming positive results of a Phase 1 program, will consist of 200 drill holes totaling approximately 150,000 feet (46,000 meters) and the Company anticipates that approvals will be obtained in early 2011. 

The primary objective of the Company is to focus on developing a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource.

Callicrate B.Sc., Professional Geologist 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 through his knowledge and experience with the project.
