DRILLING RESUMES ON RODEO CREEK
Trio Gold Corp. (Trio) announces drilling has resumed on its Rodeo Creek Gold property, Elko County Nevada.  Drilling on the company’s AMK 10-04 hole had been suspended due to unusually inclement weather conditions.  The hole had reached a depth of 1,400 ft prior to weather conditions inhibiting access to the drill site.  AMK 10-04 is expected to reach a target depth of approximately 3,000 ft. The objective of AMK10-04 is to test the potential for a deep-seated high-grade auriferous structure believed to be the source of gold mineralization found at shallow depth in the nearby Flower area.Upon completion of AMK 10-04, drilling will begin on the second hole of this phase, AMK 11-05.  AMK11-05 will be an offset of AMK10-02 which was drilled in 2010 in the southwest portion of the property. AMK11-05 is a follow up hole located southwest of the more than 400ft of silicified Popovich Formation found in AMK10-02. Silicified Popovich Formation is one of the main hosts for gold mines along the Carlin Trend.

The Rodeo Creek property is located in the northern portion of the prolific gold-producing Carlin Trend which hosts as many as 30 past and currently producing gold mines, on which more than 100 million ounces of gold production and inventory had been identified to 2003, including the world class Goldstrike, Meikle and Carlin mines.
