(TSX VENTURE: TUO), ("Teuton") to option Teuton's Yellow Chris South claims ("the Property"). The Property is 12.86 square kilometres in size and located east of the town of Iskut in the Red Chris region of northwestern British Columbia.
The Property adjoins Colorado Resources Ltd.'s North Rok property to the north and east, and is situated within a couple of kilometers of Colorado's recent discovery hole reported as running 242 metres averaging 0.63% copper and 0.85 g/t gold.
