Teras to Initiate 20,000 Meter Drill Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2011) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRA) Teras is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged Harris Exploration to drill approximately 100 holes totalling over 20,000 meters on its Cahuilla 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 Sedar on November 15, 2007.

Teras has engaged Harris Exploration Company of Escondido, California (www.harrisexploration.com), having over 55 years' experience in the drilling business. Harris is scheduled to begin drilling at Cahuilla during the week of September 26th, 2011. Teras is planning to drill a minimum of 100 Reverse Circulation holes that total at least 20,000 meters. Harris will be using a Foremost Explorer 1500 buggy mounted angle drill to complete the program. Drill information obtained from historical drilling and the previous two drill programs conducted on the project over the past 12 months were used to plan the new drill hole locations. The purpose of the drill program is to significantly expand currently defined gold-silver mineralization and disclose in a new NI43-101 report.
