CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2012) - Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (News - Market indicators)(OTCQX:TRARF) is pleased to announce assay results from its reverse circulation drill program at the Cahuilla gold-silver project in Imperial County, California. The majority of drilling continued along the margins of the known precious metal mineralization in the far west, south and east portions of the project area where few historic drill holes occur as illustrated on the map below. 

The company is very pleased with the results from the first deeper hole, CAH-297, drilled on the property to date. CAH-297 was drilled within the main mineralized area to initiate testing of the deep-rooted gold/silver potential at Cahuilla. The purpose of the deeper drilling is twofold. Firstly, to continue delineation and definition of the high grade veins and secondly, to test for deeper feeder zones that the Company believes are the source of precious metals and manifest as near surface disseminated gold/silver mineralization and multiple high grade veins.

The seven recently completed drill holes are shown in purple on the following map of the project:

Some of the previous significant drill intercepts are also shown on the map. The yellow holes represent historic drilling while the red holes were completed by Teras in the past year. Results of the seven new holes are reported in the table below:

Including 170.7   172.2       1.5 (5 )   15.03 (0.438 )

CAH-297 intersected silver values as high as 524.4 g/t silver (15.31 oz/t), which is in the same 1.5m drill sample that hosted 15.03 g/t gold. CAH-297 was also drilled to a depth of 298.7 meters (980 feet), and aside from intersecting high grade gold and silver values, the hole exhibited anomalous gold mineralization to depth. Precious metal mineralization has not been tested at depths greater than 250 meters and the Company strongly feels that data obtained from the Teras drilling in the past year justifies the search for high grade feeder structures along with mineralizing volcanic and/or intrusive events. As a result, the Company is currently preparing a comprehensive exploration program to identify targets for locating high grade feeder zones that potentially represent the source of shallower, widespread disseminated and high grade vein mineralization.

Assaying of the reverse circulation samples was conducted by Inspectorate Laboratory in Reno, Nevada. Drill samples were collected by Mr. Paul Stubble (project geologist), split on site, placed in sample bags and delivered to Inspectorate Laboratory in Reno, Nevada for analysis. In addition, blanks and certified standards have been inserted into the sample stream at random intervals for quality control purposes.

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.

Dale A Vitone P. Eng., registered with the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario, Alberta and North West Territories and a Director for Teras, 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. Vitone has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this news release.

Watseca Project update: Teras has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with a private USA Company whereby Teras plans to sell its Watseca property for the sum of $3 Million Dollars US. The payment terms include a lump sum payment with quarterly payments thereafter over a 2 year period equalling the purchase price of $3 Million Dollars. The company will use the funds to advance its Cahuilla project. 

About Teras

The Company is focused on developing its Cahuilla project located in Imperial County, California. The project encompasses an area of at least 3 km by 1.5 km and demonstrates the potential for a large-scale, bulk mining operation consisting of altered and mineralized sedimentary host rocks with numerous sheeted high grade quartz veins. Grades of the Cahuilla gold/silver mineralization are similar to grades of the host rocks at New Gold's Mesquite Mine, also in Imperial County, California (0.56 g/t; Mineral Reserves and Resources Summary as of December 31, 2011; New Gold website). Teras will continue drilling at Cahuilla to define a gold resource complaint to the standards required for a new NI 43-101 resource report and continue developing a gold resource for future extraction.
