First Tellurium Mobilizes Crew for Copper Porphyry Exploration at Deer Horn Property; Grants Stock Options

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTC: FSTTF) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that a work crew is mobilizing for further investigation of potential copper porphyry systems at the Deer Horn Project in west-central British Columbia. Deer Horn is located 36 kilometers south of Imperial Metals' Huckleberry open pit copper mine and Surge Copper's Ootsa-Berg project.

The program, expected to begin before Labor Day, is led by Dr. Lee Groat of the University of British Columbia. Dr. Groat is a Professor at UBC's Dept. of Earth and Ocean Sciences and a former NATO Postdoctoral Fellow at Cambridge University.

"Dr. Groat's team will follow up on three copper showings first discovered at Deer Horn in 2012," said FTEL CEO Tyrone Docherty. "As reported in our latest PEA, the showings were indicative of a copper porphyry system hidden from previous explorers due to glaciation. With the glaciers receding, we now have extensive new ground to explore with untapped potential."

The May 2018 PEA noted that bulk-tonnage, porphyry-style copper-silver mineralization and associated alteration was discovered north of the Deer Horn adit. Another new area of anomalous copper-gold mineralization was discovered along ridge crests northwest of Kenney Lake. The extent of both discoveries remains open and unknown at this time.

The copper showings are located about one kilometer west-northwest of the known Te-Ag-Au resource zone and also northeast of the resource. Prospecting of these showings will include use of portable spectrometer, which can greatly enhance identification and measurement of mineral systems.

"A copper porphyry system would add significant value to the Deer Horn Property's mineral mix," said Docherty. "While we've long focused on the tellurium-silver-gold zone, Dr. Groat has always championed the potential of other metals on the property. It's important to remember that Deer Horn covers more than fifty-one square kilometers, most of it unexplored."

The area around the Huckleberry Mine and Surge Copper's Ootsa-Berg project is being recognized as one of the province's most exciting emerging copper districts with significant untapped exploration potential. Recent discoveries by Surge Copper have added to interest in the region.

"Both copper and tellurium are critical for new battery technology," said Docherty. "New advances in lithium-tellurium (Li-Te) batteries show great promise for efficiency, safety and battery life, while copper is essential for development of electric vehicles. We feel the Company is well positioned to capitalize on both trends."

Stock Option Grant

The Company also announces that it has granted 100,000 incentive stock options to a consultant of the Company, exercisable at a price of $0.19 per share for a period of 10 years.

First Tellurium Completes Soil Sampling Program at Klondike Project in Colorado

First Tellurium Completes Soil Sampling Program at Klondike Project in Colorado

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL OTC FSTTF ) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), is pleased to report that its US-based team of geologists has completed soil sampling at the Company's Klondike tellurium-gold project in south-central Colorado. Data and interpretations from this program will inform a Phase 1 drilling program at Klondike planned for 2023, helping to better formulate drillhole targeting and permitting drill sites.

A total of 343 soil samples were collected over nine days on a grid measuring 1 kilometer x 1 kilometer, with variable sample spacing of 30 to 60 meters east-west and 60 meters north-south. The original grid plan and budget (as announced in the FTEL   news   release of October 13, 2022) called for 550 samples. The number of samples needed to complete the program's goals was reduced by eliminating samples from areas of transported alluvial deposits, areas of excessively steep terrain with rock talus/scree and little or no soil and eliminating a few peripheral grid lines in areas of lower priority as determined by the geological team on site. All samples will be shipped to ALS Geochemistry for trace-level analysis of 51 elements, including tellurium and gold. Results are expected to be received by mid-to late December.

First Tellurium Reports on Recent Channel Sampling at Deer Horn

First Tellurium Reports on Recent Channel Sampling at Deer Horn

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL OTC FSTTF ) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that channel and rock sampling conducted Oct 5-7 at the Company's Deer Horn Property in west-central British Columbia has confirmed the presence of porphyry mineralization while encountering new mineralization in areas not previously sampled. Channel samples were taken from the Pond and H-Spot porphyry targets. The samples compliment rock samples obtained from the North Pond porphyry target and other mineral showings in August and September. Pictures from the sampling program can be viewed here .

"Even with assays still pending, this was a successful and positive sampling effort by just about any measure," said First Tellurium Chairman and geologist Tony Fogarassy, who participated in the sampling. "Not only did we confirm porphyry mineralization at the Pond, North Pond and H-Spot zones, we discovered a possible 1.1-kilometer (.7 miles) extension of the existing 2.4-kilometer (1.5 miles) gold-silver-tellurium vein system. This vein system may now extend a total of 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles)."
