Teras Resources Inc. ("Teras" or the "Company") (TRA.V): On February 21, 2014, the Alberta Securities Commission (the "ASC") released a copy of the settlement agreement it has entered into with Kris Sundell. The investigation itself was into Mr. Sundell and Strategic Capital International Inc. ("Strategic") and revolved around the trading of Teras shares in an account that was wholly-owned by Strategic and controlled by Mr. Sundell. Mr. Sundell was the sole director, shareholder and representative of Strategic. Mr. Sundell and Strategic were consultants to Teras at the time of the trading. Teras and its President and CEO, Peter Leger, fully cooperated with the ASC in its investigation of Mr. Sundell and Strategic, and, despite some untrue statements obviously made by Mr. Sundell to the ASC, neither Teras nor Mr. Leger were ever aware of the trading that was taking place, nor did Mr. Leger influence or direct such trading in any manner.
Teras continues to focus on delivering shareholder value by developing its Cahuilla project in Imperial County, California. The first diamond drill core hole was completed to depth of 500 feet on Thursday February 20, 2014 and the second hole is expected to be completed by February 24, 2014. The results of the drilling will be released in due course.
Teras 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 Teras believes that the Cahuilla project has the potential to develop into a 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 1.0 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 cut-off of 0.008 ounces per ton gold). The Company has a goal to increase the grade and tonnage of the resource and develop the project for future mining operations.
Dale A Vitone P. Eng., registered with the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario, Alberta and Northwest Territories and a director of 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 mining scientific and technical information contained in this news release.
