Under the terms of a binding Letter of Understanding, Teslin completed a preliminary soil geochemical program to evaluate the potential of extending the existing historic resource to the southeast. An audit of the historic resource leading to a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) has now commenced and is to be completed during the first quarter of 2012. This work is being done by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc.

"We are very pleased to have completed the agreement with Eureka and are working diligently to complete the evaluation of soil sampling work recently completed at Frasergold," said John Burgess, President and CEO of Teslin. "Frasergold brings a pre-development project into our portfolio to complement our early stage exploration projects."

The Frasergold Project has a prior NI 43-101 compliant resource completed in November 2009 - "Report on the 2007 and 2008 Drill Programs on the Frasergold Project" prepared by K.V. Campbell and G.H. Giroux for Hawthorne Gold Corp. - of 614,000 ounces of gold Measured and Indicated and 1,225,000 ounces of gold Inferred at a cut-off of 0.30g/t gold.

Cautionary Notes: Inferred mineral resources have insufficient confidence to allow the meaningful application of technical and economic parameters or to enable an evaluation of economic viability suitable for public disclosure. Neither the Company nor readers can assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will be upgraded to indicated or measured mineral resource. Most projects at the inferred mineral resource stage do not ever achieve successful commercial production. Each stage of a project is contingent on the positive results of the previous stage and that there is a significant risk that the results may not support or justify moving to the next stage. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves, do not have demonstrated economic viability.
