Dig Media Inc. (“Dig”) is pleased to announce the launch of Tellurium Investing News with partner Deer Horn Metals Inc. (TSX-V:DHM) (“Deer Horn”).

Tellurium Investing News is the latest addition to Dig Media’s Resource Investing News Network  of commodity-focused sites. Dig Media’s sites educate and inform investors about the factors influencing the markets, while providing branding and connecting opportunities for exploration and mining companies.

Tellurium is one of earth’s rarest elements, and while it is more abundant than gold, tellurium is produced in smaller quantities. Historically, tellurium has been produced as a by-product of copper and lead and has been primarily used in alloys and specialized military applications. Demand for tellurium as a semiconductor material is rising for applications such as solar panels. Cadmium telluride solar panels are among the most efficient, with a  a 10-15 percent cost advantage over the more widely used silicon panels.

“There are a lot of questions surrounding tellurium exploration and mining and no dedicated source of news and information,” said Chris Smith, Publisher at Dig. “Tellurium Investing News will provide investors’ with the market information they seek from a source they can trust.”

Despite not having a big impact on the exploration business, there has been a huge rise and subsequent fall in the price of tellurium over the past 2 years. Since 2009, tellurium prices have spiked to $440 in 2011, but has dropped to around $170 today.

“We are very excited about the potential for tellurium and feel we are ahead of the curve with our Deer Horn property in BC,” commented Tyrone Docherty, President and CEO of Deer Horn. “Tellurium has a great long term story and we’re glad there is now a dedicated source of information.”

Tellurium Investing News will educate investors on the macroeconomics influencing the tellurium market as well as offer specific insights into public companies exploring and producing tellurium to enable investors to make informed decisions.
