Peter Leger, President and CEO of Teras Resources, remarked “Given the recent advancements we have achieved at our Cahuilla project in identifying high priority drill targets both near surface and at depth, we are very excited to begin drilling in the near future using the proceeds from this financing as the next steps toward advancing Cahuilla into a world class precious metals project.”
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 and volcanic host rocks with numerous sheeted high-grade quartz veins. Teras filed a NI 43-101 compliant technical report with an indicated resource of 1.2 million plus ounces of gold and 11 million plus ounces of silver on its Cahuilla project (70.148 million tons at an average grade of 0.015 ounces per ton gold and 0.17 ounces per ton silver with a cutoff of 0.008 ounces per ton gold). The Company has an aggressive plan to increase the resource and develop the project for future mining operations.
