Answering the Demand for Critical Metals

First Tellurium Corp is exploring and developing tellurium projects in British Columbia and Colorado. As the world pushes ahead to develop green technologies, tellurium will continue to experience increasing demand.

“Without significant expansion of the tellurium supply capacity, shortages of Te could occur in the short term and are likely in the medium term.”

Exploring Responsibly.
Leveraging Diverse Partnerships.

We’ve built a bold new approach to mineral exploration. Our model is to generate revenue and investor value through mineral discovery, project development and cooperative access to untapped mineral regions with sustainable exploration and strong, mutually beneficial engagement with Indigenous communities.
Our polymetallic (tellurium, gold, silver, copper, tungsten) Deer Horn Project in British Columbia and Klondike tellurium-gold property in Colorado anchor a diversified search for metals, working in alliance with Indigenous peoples, NGOs, governments and leading metals buyers. This is the future of mineral exploration: generating revenue by exploring responsibly and leveraging diverse partnerships.
