TERYL IS ONE STEP CLOSER TO FINDING DIAMONDS AS ANALYSIS REVEALS PRESENCE OF G10 GARNETS

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 23 ~PRNewswire~ -- Teryl Resources (Vancouver: TRC) has received notice that partial results from the microprobe analysis for six of the seven samples taken from its 2,530-acre Lac de Gras area property has been received by Kennecott Canada Inc.
 Teryl's geologists conducted an in-house assessment based on raw data received by Kennecott using the graph of Dawson and Stephens (1975).
 Two of the pyrope garnets appear to be of G10 composition.
 One G10 garnet occurs in sample CAT 920069 from eight reported pyrope garnets and one G10 garnet in sample CAT 920075 from six picked pyropes. The presence of G10 garnets is essential to finding diamonds. Confirmatory evidence will be provided by analysis from chromites and eclogitic garnets.
 Results from the seventh sample collected on the property which lies only 20 miles from Dia Met~BHP Utah diamond discovery are expected shortly. Thus far six of the seven samples have returned a heavy concentration of diamond indicator minerals.
 Verification of these results by an independent diamond expert is under way.
 Kennecott Canada Inc., the Canadian subsidiary of RTZ (NYSE: RTZ), has already requested to exercise its option to earn a 61-percent interest in Teryl Resources Corp.'s Amad Claims by spending $1,250,000 and an additional 4 percent by spending $3,250,000 on the property over six years.
