Precious Metals

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTC: FSTTF) (the "Company" or "First Tellurium"), reports that the Company's Strategic Partner Fenix Advanced Materials of Trail, BC, has provided additional funding to the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO) to advance research and development of solid-state, lithium-tellurium batteries. The new batteries are designed to increase performance and stability specifically for powering electric vehicles. UBCO, home to over 11,562 undergraduate and graduate students, is a renowned research and innovation hub situated in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley.

As reported in First Tellurium's March 9 , 2022 news release, UBCO, in cooperation with Fenix, has developed a lithium ion tellurium battery that could meet a number of performance and safety needs for the EV battery market. Tellurium can extend lithium battery life up to 400% and in some cases hold ten times the charge (as reported January 26, 2022 ). The advanced and patented product is nearing commercial production. A recent Global News cast on the technology can be viewed here .

"Considering the Biden administration's recent commitment to provide nearly three billion dollars to boost production of advanced batteries, development of the lithium-tellurium battery is timely," said First Tellurium CEO Tyrone Docherty. "At the same time, Canada is developing its own Critical Minerals Strategy , backed by a commitment approaching four billion dollars in 2022, to address the need for metals like tellurium for advanced battery technology."

The UBC program, led by the UBC Okanagan Principal's Research Chair in Energy Storage Technologies Dr. Jian Liu, represents an important step toward building a battery supply chain locally while strengthening Fenix's international position in the growing battery market.

"This partnership with UBCO has played a key role in helping to uncover some exciting innovations in new battery technology and other clean technology solutions," said Fenix Founder Don Freschi. "We are thrilled to take this next step." Mr. Freschi also sits on First Tellurium's Advisory Board.

Fenix is supplying the pure tellurium required for UBCO's battery development. Tellurium has high electrical conductivity and a high volumetric capacity—meaning it can help create small, but powerful batteries. The collaboration with Fenix will ensure Dr. Liu and his team have the materials to conduct their research.

Under the Fenix-FTEL Strategic Partnership, First Tellurium plans to supply Fenix with tellurium from the Company's Deer Horn Project in west-central BC, situated south of Imperial Metals' Huckleberry Mine. First Tellurium is the only junior mining company focused on exploring for and supplying tellurium, and the Deer Horn Project represents North America's only tellurium-silver-gold property with an NI 43-101 compliant tellurium resource.

Said Docherty, "Fenix is a leader in supplying ultra-pure critical metals like tellurium to industry. They're well-positioned to benefit from the world's push to move away from fossil fuels."

Presenting at the NAI 500 Resource Conference
First Tellurium also reports that it will be presenting at the NAI 500 GCFF Global Resource Investment Conference , September 24th, 2022 at the Richmond Sheraton Hotel. GCFF is pleased to announce the return to in-person attendance for the first time since the pandemic.

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."

Endeavour Silver Continues to Intersect High-Grade Mineralization at the Guanacevi Mine including 3.54 g/t Gold and 1,129 g/t Silver for 1,412 g/t Silver Equivalents over 7.28 meters

Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK) ("Endeavour" or the "Company") is pleased to report positive drill results from its ongoing drill program at the Guanacevi Mine in Durango state, Mexico. Drilling continues along the prolific Santa Cruz vein in two areas (view Santa Cruz Vein longitudinal section ), with the objective to convert, expand, and discover new resources.

The 2022 drill program has continued to focus on the El Curso property, establishing lateral and vertical extents of the mineralized zone between the Porvenir Cuatro and Milache mines.
