Vancouver, Canada – August 31st, 2023- Trench Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: TMC, FWB: 33H2 announces that it has entered into an agreement with Carter Lake Resource Corp. (“CLR Corp”), and the sole shareholder of CLR Corp (the “Vendor”), pursuant to which the Company proposes to acquire (the “Acquisition”) all of the outstanding share capital of CLR Corp. CLR Corp is the owner of the Carter Lake Uranium Project, situated in the prominent Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Carter Lake Uranium Project spans over 691 hectares on the western flank of the Athabasca Basin, strategically positioned within the Carter Lake Corridor, a substantial structural feature that runs parallel to the renowned Patterson Lake Corridor – home to mineralization control points for NexGen’s Rook 1 deposit and Fission Uranium’s PLS deposit. The Acquisition is intended to align with the Company’s strategic growth plans, adding to its existing position within the Athabasca region.

The Carter Lake Project shares borders with Denison Mine’s Hook-Carter Project to the east and Purepoint Uranium’s Hook Lake project to the south, reinforcing its standing as a prime exploration asset.

The principal exploration focus at Carter Lake centers around approximately 4.7 kilometers of subsurface conductive anomalies, previously identified through MegaTEM and VTEM surveys conducted by ESO Uranium Corp. These anomalies are interpreted as a conductive horizon situated at or above the unconformity, potentially indicative of hydrothermal enrichment. Excitingly, recent assessments via radon gas emission surveys have confirmed the presence of uranium decay along the conductive trend.

Simon Cheng, President and CEO of the Company, expressed his enthusiasm about this acquisition, stating, “We are excited to add the Carter Lake Uranium project into our portfolio of uranium projects within the Athabasca region. The project’s strategic alignment coupled with its accessible location, provides an excellent avenue for expanding our year-round exploration initiatives.”

Cheng further elaborated, “Trench Metals is committed to a comprehensive interpretation of past work executed on the property and will promptly design a near-term work program. We remain dedicated to keeping our valued investors well-informed about our progress. As with all our endeavors, Trench Metals is resolute in conducting its work programs in an environmentally responsible manner, and we are eager to engage in collaborative partnerships with local indigenous communities.”
