Trench Metals Identifies Exploration Targets at Carter Lake Uranium Project
Vancouver, Canada - TheNewswire - October 3, 2023 - Trench Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV:TMC) (FWB:33H2) is pleased to provide an exploration update for its wholly-owned Carter Lake Uranium Project situated on the west side of the Athabasca Basin.
A examination of the VTEM (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic) data has unveiled multiple potential exploration targets. The identified targets are predominantly characterized as either conductive zones (graphite-bearing zones) at the basement level or alteration systems near the unconformity. Notably, these conductors exhibit strong alignment with radon gas anomalies present within the Carter Lake Corridor, a significant regional scale structure. This structure runs parallel to the renowned Patterson Lake corridor, known for hosting substantial uranium discoveries. These include significant deposits like the Triple R Deposit owned by Fission Uranium and the Arrow Deposit under Nexgen Energy.
From the findings, a total of twelve conductive Target Zones (TZ) have been spotlighted. Based on a combination of factors including response strength, strike angle, strike length, and magnetic analysis, TZ-2 and TZ-4 have been earmarked as the highest priority. Specifically, their strike angle is consistent with fold axes or faulting, they boast a longer strike length, and they are in proximity to magnetic lows and areas of discontinuities in the magnetic high.
The Company remains committed to responsible exploration practices and environmental stewardship throughout its operations. The Company adheres to all applicable regulations and standards, ensuring that its activities are conducted with utmost care for the environment and local communities.

*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.
