He managed all aspects of Rare Element's successful exploration program on the property from the exploration to the development stage. He has specific expertise in the application of petrography and mineralogy to exploration and mineral processing, and has developed cathodoluminescence (CL) petrographic techniques that facilitate exploration of epithermal Au-Ag vein systems. During his career Dr. Clark has worked or consulted for a variety of mining companies, including Molycorp, Barrick Gold, Newmont Mining, Hecla Mining, AngloGold, and CVRD, as well as many smaller companies.

Teras continues to focus on delivering shareholder value by developing its Cahuilla project under the guidance of its well experienced team.
Teras is focused on developing its Cahuilla project located in Imperial County, California. The project encompasses an area of at least 3 km by 1.5 km and Teras believes that the Cahuilla project has the potential to develop into a mining operation consisting of altered and mineralized sedimentary and volcanic host rocks with numerous sheeted high-grade quartz veins. Teras filed a NI 43-101 compliant technical report with an indicated resource of 1.0 million ounces of gold and 11.9 million ounces of silver on its Cahuilla project (70 million tons at an average grade of 0.015 ounces per ton gold and 0.17 ounces per ton silver with a cut-off of 0.008 ounces per ton gold) and inferred class of 10 million tons grading 0.011 opt gold and 0.10 opt silver. Gold equivalent ounces are 1.2 million ounces in indicated class and 130,000 ounces in inferred class using a ratio of 55 silver ounces to 1 gold ounce.
