Well, Namkha Drimed Rinpoche is one of the more well known living tertons, who is probably continuing to reveal terma.. so I would include his ter at the top of the list.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Younge Khachab Rinpoche is a terton, and he is in his early 50s. I am not aware of any dates of him receiving/finding termas, but unless it was very early in his life the termas would be recent (more or less).

Terma have a a ter-shad, two circles separated by a short horizontal line, at the end of each line (as opposed to the ordinary shad which is a simple straight vertical line). If an author doesn't use such ter-shad, it would be one strong signal to me and the rest of the Tibetan world that He or She does not consider Their work terma.

Personally, I have never heard or seen the term mi-lam ter-ma before in any Tibetan description or discussion of the various types of terma.

Never seen rmi-lam gter in traditional literature on the subject.

mnal-chos is the expression used in the english prefaces of ChNNR's Klong-gsal.

This wiki definition is actually misleading since not all dag-snang can be classified as gter-ma. It however clearly distinguishes nye-brgyud gter-ma (short lineage treasures) from zab-mo dag snang (profound pure visions). But as said, not all persons who have dag-snang can be or must be considered as gter-ston.
It would seem that ChNNR has other cycles of revealed teachings (such as those associated with the Bla med snying thig) which are clearly gter-ma.
