10,000 Metres of Drilling Recommended for Treaty Creek Property

February 8, 2011 - Vancouver, BC

Teuton Resources Corp. ("Teuton") ("TUO"-TSX-V) ("TFE"-Frankfurt) announces that it has recently received a copy of a summaryreport on the Treaty Creek property, dated May 31, 2010, from American CreekResources. The report is written by Raul Sanabria Orellana, P. Geo., previouslyVice-President of Exploration for American Creek, who notes that both the GR2and Copper Belle mineralized zones remain open in several directions. Excerptsfrom the report are reproduced below in which Mr. Orellana recommends 9,000 to11,000 metres of additional drilling work for these zones:

"The GR2 zone hosts the potential of a volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS)deposit with high gold and silver grades. The identified feeder (sulphide-richstringer zone) in a strongly phyllic altered rock and the bedded sulphides inturbiditic carbonaceous mudstone, along with coarse grained sulphides in amassive sulphide lens, appears to be either the proximal zone of the sulphidevent, or a deep low-sulphidation epithermal system, and indicates the greatpotential of this newly geologically interpreted area. The sulphide lensinterpreted from 4 subparallel drill sections perpendicular to the strike of themineralized zone, and 3 additional offset drillholes, appears to thicken towardsthe southwest. The same thickening occurs in the turbiditic sequence hostingthe bedded sulphides. Gold values apparently increase towards the north,opposite to the sulphide rich zones, where sulphide content is increasingtowards the south. Drilling the GR2 target along strike, stepping back from theknown mineralization towards the northeast around hole GR2-09-07 and southwestfollowing up with the sulphide rich zones found around hole GR2-09-11, will testthe potential for the mineralization found at depth and along strike. A4,000-5,000 metre drill program with less than 50 metre spacing between holesstepping back from the initial 2007 drillholes is recommended to test thecontinuity of the precious and base metal mineralization while continuingdefining the ore bodies.

Drilling the Copper Belle target is recommended towards the west where thevolcanic breccias are found. Copper Belle hosts the potential of a low-grade,bulk-tonnage gold-(copper-molybdenum) porphyry style of mineralization.Correlation between drillholes and surface is possible with a high grade ofconfidence and gold and base metal grades combined are in the range for a bulktonnage deposit according to the current market conditions. A drill program of5,000-6,000 metres, stepping back towards the west from the 2009 drill pads andwith 75-100 metre spacing can be done in the higher grade zones for the purposeof better confidence in correlation between holes.

The various mineral zones explored during the 2009 program are described in thereport as follows:

GR2 Zone - "The GR2 target is located in the vicinity of the Copper Belle, athigher topographic and stratigraphic level. Marked structural and lithologicalcontrol, textures in sulphide mineralization as well as very elevatedconcentration of pathfinder elements such as arsenic, antimony and manganesevalues indicates an epithermal system with features of the feeder zone of aVolcanogenic Massive Sulphides (VMS) style of mineralization. Three styles ofmineralization have been interpreted in core. Stringers and veins composedchiefly of quartz and pink manganoan dolomite/rhodocrosite, and minor galena,sphalerite and chalcopyrite. These veins show breccia and crustiform textures,typical of deep, low-sulphidation epithermal mineralization, or a combination ofboth. The second style of mineralization is found as well bedded sulphides(pyrite) in black mudstones of turbiditic origin, which indicates the presenceof exhalative sulphides and a reduced basin where deposition and preservation ofsulphides exist. The third style of mineralization is found as a zone of coarsegrained sulphides, locally up to 20m thick, showing intensive silicification.The stratabound character of the zone indicates a possible lens of massivesulphide proximal to the venting zone, and not sinter as is typical of otherepithermal systems. Elevated grades of gold and silver correlate with zinc andlead (sphalerite, galena and lead sulphosalts) in these zones, whereas gold ismore commonly found in the fossilferous black mudstones-siltstones of turbiditicorigin. Sulphide rich zones are characterized by the presence of massive galenaand sphalerite, generally very corase grained, with variable amounts of silversulphosalts and finely disseminated chalcopyrite. Pyrite is conspicuous withinthe phyllic (sericite-carbonate) altered host rock. The mineralized lenses andstringer-vein zones strike roughly northeast and dip steeply to the northwest."

Hole GR2-09-07 intersected 14.5 metres @ 5.44g/t gold (including several highgrade intervals within it: 1.50 metres @ 17.29 g/t Au that includes 0.40 metres@ 27.50 g/t Au).

Copper Belle Zone -- "The Copper Belle target was drilled in 2007 and followedup during the 2009 season along strike toward the southwest, parallel to thesurface alteration (gossanous) zone. The Goat Trail zone was drilled betweenthe 2007 drill pad and the historic 1989 drillholes. The sulphide and gold richareas are found on surface and at depth and trend roughly NE, dipping steeply tothe NW. Several NE-SW fault zones offset the mineralized zones. The best andmore consistent gold values are found in chlorite-sericite-pyrite alteredvolcanic breccias. Lower and more discontinuous gold values are found infeldspathic sandstones interbedded with pink and green chlorite and K-Feldsparaltered andesitic ash tuffs, similar to the surface outcrops in the Goat Trailgossan. The volcanic breccias are found to the west of a regional NE-SW faultzone, and are hosting the bulk of the gold mineralization in the Copper Bellezone. Copper values are also elevated in this host rock.

During the 2009 season, hole CB-09-14, the most northwesterly hole drilled onthis zone to date, returned 241 metres of 0.80 g/t gold and ended inmineralization."

Eureka Zone - "A large AeroTEM airborne anomaly shows evidence of a porphyrystyle mineralization with epithermal overprinting. The AeroTEM airborne surveyindicates that the anomaly is located just beneath the main gossan in the TreatyNunatak. Sulphide enrichment at depth and towards the center of the anomalyfound in drill core and the lack of base metals in soils may indicate surfaceleaching and presence of the sulphide mineralization at depth (porphyry stylewith high grade Au-Ag epithermal overprinting). "

Treaty Ridge Zone - "The Treaty Ridge zone is a new target located in theeastern part of the property. It is characterized by the presence of a strongEM conductor in a mudstone formation on top of a bimodal volcanic sequencecomprised of basalts and dacite-rhyolite (Mount Dilworth Formation) rocks ofsubmarine origin. Drainages from this unit reported strong values of zinc andsilver in silt samples. The age of the unit is coincident with the age of thenearby Eskay Creek deposit.

The holes were collared stratigraphically above the mentioned mudstone formationand stopped in the rhyolite-dacite formation. Although no significant gold orsilver intersections were encountered in the 2009 drilling, all three holesintersected several tens of metres of pyritic mudstones, appearing as thin bedsof detrital pyrite, presumably of turbiditic origin. In the lower part of theholes, the beds also included very fine tuffaceous sandstone beds (pyjama beds)grading from cherty-pebble conglomerates immediately below. The Treaty Ridgewill continue to be an area of focus in future exploration."
