Vancouver, Canada – February 15th, 2024 – Trench Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: TMC, FWB: 33H2) is pleased to announce that it is in the process of permitting an Induced Polarization (IP) survey at its wholly-owned Carter Lake Uranium Project, covering several kilometers of the Carter Lake corridor. This strategic move is aimed at delineating and refining diamond drilling targets along the Carter Lake corridor, which runs parallel to the Patterson Lake Corridor—a control zone for the Arrow and PLS discoveries. The IP survey will play a pivotal role in enhancing our understanding of the project’s geology, providing valuable data for future exploration activities.

The Carter Lake corridor, known for its geological significance, presents a compelling opportunity for uranium exploration. By employing cutting-edge IP survey technology, the Company aims to precisely map subsurface features, enabling the identification of high-potential drilling targets. This data will be analyzed in conjunction with radiometric and radon gas data, as well as other geophysical datasets, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of our exploration strategy.

Simon Cheng, President of the Company, commented on the significance of this development, stating, “The initiation of the Induced Polarization survey at Carter Lake marks a crucial step forward in our exploration efforts. This state-of-the-art survey technique will provide us with a detailed subsurface understanding, allowing us to refine our drilling targets and unlock the full potential of the Carter Lake Uranium Project. We are committed to employing cutting-edge technologies to drive our exploration success.”
