Vancouver, Canada – October 11, 2023 – Trench Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: TMC, FWB: 33H2) is pleased to announce its detailed exploration plan for the Carter Lake Uranium Project. The exploration program at the Carter Lake Uranium Project has been thoughtfully divided into two distinct phases, each aimed at maximizing the project’s potential and ensuring accurate geological mapping. The comprehensive program aims to unlock the project’s full potential and provide valuable insights into the region’s geological features. The Company is committed to executing a meticulously planned and environmentally responsible exploration program.

Phase One: Airborne MT Survey

The first phase of the program involves conducting an airborne Magnetotelluric (MT) survey. This state-of-the-art survey technique will accurately map basement depths and geological features both at the unconformity and within the basement rocks. MT surveys are renowned for their effectiveness in penetrating subsurface layers, with a range of several kilometers. This technology offers superb resolution, enabling us to identify faults, contacts, and geological domains with precision.

Phase Two: Diamond Drilling

Following the completion of the MT survey, the program will move on to its second phase, which entails diamond drilling. This phase aims to test the two primary target zones, TZ1 and TZ2, both at the unconformity and within the basement. The program will involve two setups, each with three 600-meter drill holes, totaling 3600 meters of drilling. This strategic approach will provide valuable core samples for in-depth analysis.

The Company is actively in the process of securing an experienced exploration team to spearhead these phases of the program. The selection process will prioritize expertise and a commitment to environmental responsibility.

The Company is dedicated to maintaining transparent communication with its shareholders as the timing of the program’s execution is determined. Regular updates will be provided to ensure that our investors remain well-informed throughout the exploration process.

As part of our corporate responsibility, the Company emphasizes environmental stewardship and community collaboration. We are committed to conducting our exploration activities in an environmentally responsible manner, adhering to all relevant regulations and guidelines. Moreover, we will work closely with local communities to ensure that our operations are conducted with respect and consideration for their interests and concerns.

The Company is excited about the potential that the Carter Lake Uranium Project holds and is confident that this exploration program will pave the way for a successful future in uranium resource development.

The Higginson Lake Uranium Project host two historic drill indicated reserves, totaling 4,800,000 lbs of U308.* The Spreckley Lake Uranium Project which comprises of 1385 hectares in northern Saskatchewan, strategically located adjacent to Skyharbor’s Pluto Bay Project. The Athabasca District is home to the highest grade of uranium deposits in the world and accounts for 18% of global uranium production.

*The historical mineral resource estimate presented above uses categories that do not conform to current Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves as outlined in National Instrument 43-101. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the estimate as a current mineral resource and as such the Company is treating it as a historical resource estimate. Readers are cautioned that the historical mineral resource estimate does not mean or imply that economic deposits exist on the Higginson Lake Uranium Project.
