Corporate Update

Trio Gold Corp. (Trio) previously announced that drilling had resumed on its Rodeo Creek project in northeastern Nevada, however unusually wet spring break up conditions has slowed progress. Current weather conditions show a marked improvement and the company expects to complete hole AMK10-04 in the coming weeks. 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 AMK10-04, drilling will begin on the second hole of this phase, AMK11-05, in the southwest portion of the property. AMK11-05 is a follow up hole located southwest of AMK10-02, AMK 10-02 penetrated more than 400ft of silicified Popovich Formation, which 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.

The Company has elected not to renew its contract with Nick Fuller & Associates (NFA) as its European Investor Relations Consultant. As a result, the company will cancel the 1,300,000 incentive stock options allocated to NFA.
