Teryl Resources Announces Completion of Silverknife 43-101 Technical Report

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Feb 14, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Teryl Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: TRC)(OTCBB: TRYLF) is pleased to announce the 43-101 technical report for the Silverknife property is complete.

The Silverknife Property (the "Property", "Silverknife Property" or the "Silverknife Project", or "Project") is located in North central British Columbia, Canada in the Liard Mining Division Tootsee River area, approximately 100 km west of the town of Watson Lake, Yukon at roughly (59 degrees 56' 13" N. Latitude; 130 degrees 21' 09" W. Longitude). Direct Property access is possible utilizing a network of well-maintained to variably deactivated forest service and mining service roads. The eastern Property boundary lies approximately 1 kilometre from Silvercorp Metals Inc. Silvertip Silver-Zinc-Lead mineral deposit.

Through a series of agreements, the Property is owned as follows:

-- Teryl owns 30% working interest and has a 10% Net Profit Interest ("NPI"); -- Minewest owns 70% subject to the 10% NPI held by Teryl; -- Reg holds a 5% net profits interest against the whole of the Property; and -- a 1% NSR is held against the Property by SMR Investments Ltd.

The Silverknife Property consists two (2) contiguous British Columbia "legacy" (4-post style) mineral claims covering approximately 645 hectares (1,594 acres) and is in good standing with respect to British Columbia Minerals Title Act through January 12, 2012.

The purpose of the report is to present an independent Property review technical report summarizing previous work, reviewing the exploration potential of the Property and making recommendations towards future work on the Property.

In 1983, the Silverknife Property was staked and from 1984-1988 Reg Resources Corp. and Chevron Minerals Inc. a staged series of mineral exploration programs were conducted. Geochemistry and geophysics were the primary initial (1983-1985) exploration tools applied to Property, and following on a number of anomalies discovered in 1985 a 30 hole diamond drill program was completed. Based on this first phase drilling, a "Discovery Zone" of silver-zinc-lead mineralization was uncovered, including the following intersections:

-- Hole 85-4: 7.25 m of 5.04oz/t Ag, 2.65% Pb and 3.09% Zn -- Hole 85-6: 0.2 m of 4.43oz/t Ag, 1.9% Pb and 3.42% Zn -- Hole 85-21: 4.3 m of 29.02oz/t Ag, 10.14% Pb and 7.02% Zn

20 additional holes were collared from 1986-1987, the bulk of which were focused on defining and expanding the "Discovery Zone" mineralization on the Property. The 1987 drilling included the following mineralized intersections:

-- Hole 87-35: 18.02 m of 4.17 oz/t Ag, 1.67% Pb and 3.02% Zn
-- Hole 87-38: 9.99 m of 5.36 oz/t Ag, 1.73% Pb and 3.15% Zn
-- Hole 87-39: 4.63 m of 3.18 oz/t Ag, 4.60% Pb and 3.97% Zn
-- Hole 87-40: 5.94 m of 6.20 oz/t Ag, 3.47% Pb and 3.65% Zn
-- Hole 87-43: 8.00 m of 2.05 oz/t Ag, 1.59% Pb and 4.85% Zn
-- Hole 87-44: 3.66 m of 7.52 oz/t Ag, 6.21% Pb and 4.78% Zn

In 1988, Cordilleran Engineering Ltd. conducted a line cutting, soil sampling, geological mapping and IP survey on the Silverknife Property on behalf of Chevron Minerals Ltd. The objective of the 1988 program was to confirm the geochemical and geophysical anomalies identified by Reg Resources Corp. in the 1984-1987 programs, map the surface geology and re-examine all drill core from the 1985 - 1987 drilling programs. Since this 1988 program no exploration programs have been conducted on the Property.

In August of 2010, Paul D. Gray Geological Consultants ("PDGGC") were commissioned to author a technical compilation and review report ("the Report") on the Silverknife Property. On September 25 - 26, 2010 Paul D. Gray, P.Geo., conducted a site visit of the Silverknife Property, when the Property was accessed, the Discovery Zone drillout located and GPS surveyed and the historic core storage area visited and assessed. The research, site visit, and data compilation programs conducted with respect to this Report, have lead the author to the conclusion that the Silverknife Property represents a solid base metals exploration target which warrants a systematic and phased series of mineral exploration programs to adequately appraise the Project's economic potential.

The Silvertip Pb-Zn deposit of Silvercorp Metals Inc. is an advanced exploration/development project currently undergoing extensive mineral exploration (via diamond drilling) and concurrently permitting dewatering of the existing underground workings in support of renewed mine development and mineral processing activities (permitting under small mines permit to allow for shipment 75,000 tonnes per year of product). This project lies approximately one (1) kilometre from the north-eastern boundary of the Property and the mineralization identified to date on the Silverknife Property has been interpreted to be genetically related to the Silvertip mineralization. With this renewed development in the district the Silverknife Property mineralization represents an attractive target to test by a systematic diamond drilling exploration program designed to expand and define additional mineralization on the Property.

A proposed Phase I exploration program consisting of a desk study followed by a series of on-the-ground Property boundary and drill collar location surveys, followed by geophysics and diamond drilling with a recommended budget of $358,700 is recommended for the Silverknife Property. The exploration programs (and budgets), presented herein, are designed to identify the accurate location of the mineral titles boundary with respect to historic drill collars and test the Silverknife Property's precious and base metal mineral potential and will yield enough information to guide Minewest and Teryl subsequent mineral exploration programs on the Property.
