First Tellurium Stakes Additional Ground at Colorado Klondike Tellurium Project

Claims Selected for Mineral Potential and Strategic Expansion.

 

Vancouver, BC, Canada, June 15, 2023 – First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL, OTC: FSTTF) (the “Company” or “First Tellurium”), reports it has engaged Burgex Mining Consultants of Sandy, Utah to stake additional claims around the Company’s Klondike gold-tellurium project in Saguache County, Colorado. The claims have been filed with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The number and extent of the holdings will be announced once the Company receives confirmation from Burgex and the BLM.

 

“We’ve had our eye on additional ground at Klondike for some time,” said First Tellurium President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. “The new claims were selected for both their mineral potential and strategic expansion as we develop the property.”

 

Klondike is known for exceptionally high tellurium grades, and it was a top tellurium prospect held previously by First Solar Inc. when it was acquiring mineral properties to source tellurium for its solar panels. First Solar terminated its worldwide raw materials exploration program in 2012 and sold the property to Colorado Klondike LLC, which optioned the project to First Tellurium. Colorado Klondike, led by First Solar’s former Exploration Manager in North America, is managing the upcoming exploration program.

 

The Colorado Geological Survey (CGS), in partnership with the Colorado School of Mines, reported on First Solar’s exploration at Klondike in the 2015 Colorado Mineral and Energy Industry Activities 2014-2015 publication. In particular, the CGS noted:

 

“Surface sampling by First Solar, Inc. in 2006 found very high tellurium grades of up to 3.3% (33,000 ppm), along with locally high gold grades. Tellurium grades at Klondike were the highest encountered in the company’s nationwide exploration program.”
