About Tellurium ("TE")

Tellurium is one of the rarest stable solid elements in the earth crust and is sometimes associated with gold, as well as a by product of copper refining. Tellurium is mainly used as an alloying additive in steel. One of its primary and relatively new applications is in the production of solar panels.

Jacques Houle, P.Eng., a qualified person as defined by NI 43 - 101, supervised the field program and is responsible for the technical information contained in this release.

On Behalf of the board of directors,
