Terra Resources, Ltd.

Terra Resources, Ltd.

TRL`s principals` experience provides TRL with the ability to operate within complex regulatory environments. TRL`s principles worked in the 1980s and 1990s to develop both an environmental remediation system for cleaning contamined soils, and an alluvial mining system that reduces water usage by orders of magnitude, yet enhances fine gold recovery--a win-win situation for the miner facing water quality constraints or water supply problems. R&D work on a chemical recovery system for precious metals in a high sulfide mineral matrix in 1980-1984 contributed to the development of Terra Wash. These systems are designed to traverse any terrain, anywhere in the world.

TRL is the successor to Magnum Resources, International, Inc., Marmot Mining & Exploration, Inc., and Marmot Mining & Exploration, the original family mining partnership begun by Cyril L. Wood (Wood, 1929-2003) and Larry Wood in 1976. TRL inherits the manufacturing and marketing rights to the Arctic Miner™ and Terra Wash™. The Arctic Miner™, Terra Wash™, the Synergistic System represent a $2.3M investment over the years in R&D and development costs.

TRL's ethic has always been 'can't never did anything'. 'First in', and difficult jobs are TRL's and our principals' history. New associations, exposure to new technologies and the opportunity to adapt what we know give us an optimistic and positive outlook for the future.
