TORONTO, March 03, 2020 — Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed an amendment to its previously announced (see Trigon’s news release dated November 19, 2019) Memorandum of Understanding (“Amendment” or the “Extension”) to acquire a 100% interest in the Silver Hill Project (“Silver Hill” or the “Project”) in Morocco (the “Proposed Transaction”.)
‘Silver Hill’ refers to a 16km2 exploration project in the Anti-Atlas region of Morocco. Early basic surface exploration shows copper and silver mineralization at high grades distributed over a wide surface area.
The Amendment extends, by an additional three months, the period within which Trigon must negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement, having a new expiration date of May 19, 2020.
To date, the Company has completed a number of key requirements, including, but not limited to a management site visit in January 2020 and the completion of Trigon’s due diligence review of the Project. The team is presently preparing a National Instrument 43-101 compliant technical report on the Silver Hill property.
Jed Richardson, president and CEO of Trigon, commented: “Silver Hill is generating much excitement at Trigon. We are eager to begin our exploration work at the project. Ancient workings indicate a large mineralized area, and analysis of the slags suggest that historic mining here may have been focused on silver rather than copper. We look forward to continued business in mine-friendly Morocco as we close the Proposed Transaction and grow Trigon’s portfolio to the benefit of our valued shareholders.”
The Proposed Transaction is subject to further due diligence by Trigon, the parties negotiating and entering into a definitive agreement and obtaining of the necessary regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
