Teryl Resources Receives 2010 Gil Joint Venture Annual Report From Kinross Gold Corporation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - 01/24/11) - Teryl Resources Corp. (TSX-V:TRC - News)(OTC.BB:TRYLF - News) wishes to announce the receipt of the 2010 Gil Joint Venture Annual Report. The goal of the 2010 Gil program was to further delineate the strike extension of the mineralized zones, and to infill between step-out holes, in order to gain a better understanding of ore-zone continuity. Drilling began April 12 and concluded on August 16. The exploration program consisted of 14,977.5 feet of drilling: 27 reverse-circulation (RVC) drill holes, totaling 9,546 feet, and 11 core holes, totaling 5,431.5 feet.To view Figure 1: Location Map Showing Gil JV Prospects, Claim Boundaries, District Geology, and the True North and Fort Knox Mine Sites accompanying this press release, please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/trc124.jpgPrevious exploration work has outlined three mineralized areas: The Main Gil Zone, The North Gil Zone, and Sourdough Ridge. Gold mineralization within the Gil JV Claim Block has been traced along the Main Gil Trend for approximately 3,000 feet. In the North Gil Zone, exploration work has outlined mineralization across a 2,000-foot trend. The 509 Trend, located on Sourdough Ridge, has been traced along strike for 2,000 feet. Mineralization along the Northern Calc-silicate unit, located in the northern portion of Sourdough Ridge, has been traced to the east for 600 feet.Kinross Gold Corporation (KGC) contracted Metallogeny, Inc. (MI), a privately owned geological contracting company, to perform the 2010 drilling program. MI also conducted a ground magnetometer survey, trench mapping and sampling, metallurgical sampling, section review, and interpretation for the Gil Project.A report on the heap leach cyanidation testing on the Gil project drill core samples, by McClelland Laboratories, was conducted using three drill core samples. The three Gil samples were amenable to simulated heap leach cyanidation treatment a 80% - 12.5 mm feed size. Details of the report can be accessed on our web site www.terylresources.com.Recommendations for 2011 are to continue stepping out along mineralized trends, and to utilize exploration data to re-focus target areas. A systematic trenching program, followed by drilling, is recommend for: the northeastern extension of the 509 Trend, specifically, the eastern slope of Lohr Ridge; the Northern Calc-silicate Unit, and the calc-silicate unit located between the North Gil and Main Gil areas. Trenches should be oriented perpendicular to the trend of mineralization and spaced at 200-to 400-foot intervals. The trench program will help focus drill targets over the excavated area and allowing for more aggressive step-outs along the specific trends. Trenching will also provide good access to the target areas. All prep work could be accomplished in winter months. Drilling in areas susceptible to muddy conditions could be ready for spring when the ground is still frozen. Trenching, access trails, and pad construction are essential for moving forward as drilling progresses along steep slopes. Completion of extensive surface improvement will be contingent on permit approvals, and approval of the 2011 budget.Qualified PersonMark S.
