First Tellurium Presents at Energy Transition Metals Summit in Washington, DC

Tyrone Docherty’s presentation garners interest from high-level U.S. government representatives.

Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 6, 2024 – First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL, OTC: FSTTF), reports that the Company’s President and CEO Tyrone Docherty spoke to an enthusiastic audience at the Energy Transition Metals Summit in Washington DC on April 30th. The presentation focused on First Tellurium’s opportunities in critical metals mining as well as tellurium technologies related to solid-state lithium-tellurium batteries, solar energy and next-generation thermoelectric devices.

“This may have been the most important conference we’ve ever attended,” said Docherty. “While our information about the Deer Horn and Klondike tellurium properties was well-received, the lithium-tellurium battery and tellurium-based thermoelectric device led to conversations with both the U.S. Department of Energy and Department of Defense. The U.S. is on a mission to develop domestic sources of critical metals and related technologies, and our story generated strong interest with representatives from both departments. We look forward to taking these discussions further.”

The Company also announces the resignation of Director Tony Fogarassy effective today. Mr. Fogarassy served on the board for 15 years and was invaluable to many initiatives, particularly in developing strong relations with First Nations communities in British Columbia.

“We are very grateful for Tony’s many contributions to First Tellurium over the years,” said Docherty. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
