First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTC: FSTTF) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that it has secured Canadian Remote Drilling Services ("CRDS") of Maple Ridge, BC and Las Vegas, Nevada to conduct exploration drill campaigns at both the Klondike tellurium-gold project in Colorado and the Deer Horn tellurium-gold-silver project in British Columbia.

FTEL's immediate focus is at the Deer Horn Project, while the Klondike campaign is expected to launch later this year.

"Canadian Remote Drilling, led by Phil McLean, is a highly-regarded operator with over forty years of experience worldwide," said First Tellurium President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. "We're fortunate to have secured their services, especially considering the tight market for quality drilling companies."

Docherty noted that CRDS also manufactures leading edge drills used by a number of major mining companies. "Considering CRDS' experience, technical know-how and track record, we're confident that the program will be managed efficiently and professionally. We look forward to working with Mr. McLean and his team."

Drilling at the Colorado Klondike property will follow up on high-grade showings of both tellurium and gold identified through exploration by First Solar Inc. as part of their tellurium exploration initiative in the mid-2000s. During that time, First Solar performed geophysics, sampling, drill targeting, and permitting at Klondike. Following a corporate mandate to terminate their exploration initiative and source tellurium through open markets, First Solar dropped Klondike prior to drilling the identified targets. The property was then acquired by FTEL's Colorado Project Manager John Keller, P.Geo, who had managed Klondike exploration for First Solar. Mr. Keller, along with others who worked for First Solar at Klondike, will direct the upcoming drill program for FTEL.

As reported in the 2015 Colorado Mineral and Energy Industry Activities 2014-2015 publication, surface sampling by First Solar in 2006 found very high tellurium grades of up to 3.3% (33,000 ppm), along with locally high gold grades. The report noted that Tellurium grades at Klondike were the highest encountered in the First Solar's nationwide exploration program.

"With the growing focus on critical metals for green energy, the Klondike Property really stands out for its high-grade tellurium showings," said Docherty. "There's a good reason First Solar wanted Klondike to help supply tellurium for their cadmium-telluride solar panel production. They completed a lot of high-quality exploration, from which we're now benefitting."

Near-term drilling at the Deer Horn Project, located south of Imperial Metals' Huckleberry Mine and Surge Copper's Ootsa-Berg Project, is expected to focus on the copper porphyry showings reported in FTEL's August 23 news release. The objective is to gain a better understanding of potential porphyry systems related to these targets.

Drilling at Deer Horn in 2023 is targeted to further evaluate the known Te-Ag-Au resource, as recommended in the 2018 Preliminary Economic Assessment.

"We're very excited about taking these next steps at Deer Horn and learning more," said Docherty. "The copper targets span a very large area, and the current identified tellurium, silver and gold resource occupies only 450 meters of a 2.4 kilometer-long surface expression."

In a 2012 presentation to the International Minor Metals Conference in Cologne, Germany, First Solar identified Deer Horn as one of the world's top four primary tellurium properties, comparing Deer Horn to projects in China, Mexico and Sweden.

"Combining the drill campaigns on both properties, including current copper porphyry investigations underway at Deer Horn, we expect an active exploration pipeline over the coming 12-18 months," said Docherty. "We look forward to sharing news and results with our shareholders."

First Tellurium Plans October Drill Campaign to Investigate Copper Porphyry Target at Deer Horn Property

First Tellurium Plans October Drill Campaign to Investigate Copper Porphyry Target at Deer Horn Property

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL OTC FSTTF ) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that, further to the recently completed copper porphyry investigation at the Company's Deer Horn Property in west-central British Columbia, a follow-up drill campaign is planned for mid-October at the Pond copper porphyry target. The Pond is one of three porphyry-style showings discovered at Deer Horn in 2012. Dr. Lee Groat of the University of British Columbia, who led the August investigation, will direct the upcoming, small-scale drill campaign at Deer Horn.

"Our work last month identified additional copper porphyry-type rocks and geology at the Pond showing," said First Tellurium's President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. "Although we're awaiting assays from the latest rock samples, the team was confident enough in what they found to conduct a short drill campaign to gain more information before the 2022 exploration season ends."

First Tellurium Finalizing Upcoming Work Programs in British Columbia and Colorado

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that the Company is finalizing upcoming work programs for both its Deer Horn Project in British Columbia and Klondike Project in Colorado. Exploration will focus initially on the Deer Horn Property, with work expected to begin in September.

"Work at Deer Horn will concentrate on the copper porphyry showings detailed in our latest PEA," said FTEL CEO Tyrone Docherty. "While Deer Horn supports one of the world's only NI 43-101 qualified tellurium-silver-gold resources, past prospecting has revealed significant potential for copper porphyry mineralization outside of the known resource area."

Falcon Provides Exploration Update At Its Hope Brook Project Contiguous To Benton-Sokoman's JV, NFLD

Falcon Gold Corp. (FG:TSX-V), (3FA:GR), (FGLDF:OTCQB), ("Falcon"); and Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSX-V:MARV), (Frankfurt:O4T), (MARVF:OTCQB), ("Marvel"); and together (the "Alliance") are pleased to provide an update on their combined exploration focus for their Hope Brook Projects which are strategically located contiguous to Benton-Sokoman Joint Venture, and First Mining's ground which was recently optioned to Big Ridge Exploration. The Alliance had originally planned to complete high resolution magnetic gradiometer surveys over the project area, a proven method to distinguish structural complexities in geological terranes. Start of the survey work has been delayed due to helicopter availability from forest fires in Central Newfoundland, a state of emergency was issued. Providing the Alliance an opportunity to conduct a geophysical review and structural interpretation over the Hope Brook project area in advance of the survey and surface work. The Alliance is pleased to announce that the geophysical review has identified kilometer-scale shear zone corridors, and a major fold closure, interpreted from the magnetic patterns, within the Hope Brook Property area. These will be the focus of prospecting and till sampling projects employed to verify the structures and determine their mineralization potential. With recent success in identifying anomalous gold, tungsten, silver and copper reported by Falcon at their Gander North Property (September 15, 2022), the Alliance has shifted their exploration focus to the Gander district

Satori Commences Fall Drilling Campaign at Past Producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine, Flin Flon, Manitoba

Satori Commences Fall Drilling Campaign at Past Producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine, Flin Flon, Manitoba

Satori Resources Inc. (TSXV: BUD) ("Satori" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of its fall drilling campaign at the Tartan Lake Project, Flin Flon, Manitoba.

The Company plans to test the Hanging Wall Zone (in Main Zone) to extend the significant mineralization that was intersected in hole TLMZ21-12, which returned 47.56 g/t Au over 5.8 metres, within a broader interval that averaged 23.76 g/t Au over 12.6 metres (see news release dated December 6, 2021). This intercept isthe second highest value intercept ever recorded at Tartan Lake Main Zone and the Company believes that the physical differences in lithology and mineralization tenor suggest that this could represent the upper portion of a new zone in the hanging wall of the Main Zone trend.
