VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trench Metals Corp. (“Trench Metals” or the “Company”) (TSXV: TMC, FWB: 33H2) is pleased to unveil the details of its 2023 prospecting program at the Company’s Higginson Lake Uranium Project in Northern Saskatchewan. The program seeks to capitalize on the success of the 2022 program, which yielded promising results at the Peterson Rapids Showing.
The Peterson Rapids Showing, situated just southeast of the rapids between Peterson and Higginson Lake, approximately 11.3 kilometers southeast of Charlebois Lake, exhibited promising indicators during last year’s campaign. As a result, Trench Metals is set to undertake extensive subsequent activities to delve deeper into this prospective zone.
Additionally, the Company will broaden its investigative scope to incorporate the Charlebois Lake Showings and Dianne Uranium Showings, situated about 7 kilometers southeast of the Higginson Lake Uranium Project. These regions present significant potential for uranium deposits and warrant thorough examination to uncover their true resource potential.
The Company’s 2023 Prospecting program will employ cutting-edge technology, utilizing state-of-the-art scintillometers. These advanced instruments will play a vital role in identifying high-priority targets for trenching and drilling. The Company aims to maximize efficiency and expedite the exploration process by employing man-portable drills.
“We are pleased to announce our comprehensive work program for the Higginson Lake Uranium Project in Northern Saskatchewan,” said Simon Cheng, CEO of Trench Metals. “Building upon the positive results from our 2022 program, we are confident that the upcoming prospecting activities, aided by advanced scintillometers, will allow us to identify prospective targets and unlock the potential of this highly prospective region.”
