First Tellurium Provides Update on Sampling and IP Survey Work at Deer Horn Project

Assay results from sampling/mapping are in; analysis of IP survey is underway.


Vancouver, BC, Canada, November 6, 2023 – First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL, OTC: FSTTF), has provided an update on sampling and geophysical work at the Company’s Deer Horn gold-silver-tellurium-copper project in west-central British Columbia. Deer Horn lies 36 kilometers south of Imperial Metals’ Huckleberry Mine, southwest of Houston, BC.


In August, a property-wide mapping and sampling program at Deer Horn identified further copper-gold porphyry alteration and provided drill targets. As reported August 16, the mapping and sampling have confirmed a crucial structural connection between the property’s Pond copper porphyry and gold-silver-tellurium systems.


“Assay results from the sampling have been delivered,” said First Tellurium President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. “Our consultant and QP Dr. Groat is now cataloguing and assessing the results. The program was extensive, so he is working through a lot of data.”


First Tellurium is also awaiting analysis of the Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey conducted in September. This program followed up on rock sampling, channel sampling and prospecting conducted in 2022, as well as the August mapping/sampling.


“The IP survey should give us a much better understanding of subsurface structure and sulfide mineralization,” said Docherty. “As Dr. Groat noted earlier this year, we have identified obvious porphyry and abundant associated sulfide mineralization on surface at Deer Horn. The IP data should fill in a lot of blanks in our data as we move into next year’s expanded program.”
