Ternera continues to produce consistent results with multiple high-grade zones now having been delineated”

Management comments:

Tesoro Managing Director Zeff Reeves said: “Ternera continues to produce consistent results with multiple high-grade zones now having been delineated. The north trending fault zones are consistently returning high gold grades, which are beginning to look very attractive from a mining perspective. Our team in Chile is working very hard and moving Ternera towards a Maiden Resource Estimate. We are in the enviable position of having our hands on an expanding gold system in a tier one mining jurisdiction and we are excited by the potential we are seeing at Ternera.”
