TriMetals Mining Inc. Obtains Approval for Its Plan of Operations on the Nevada Side of the Gold Springs Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- TriMetals Mining Inc. ("TMI") (TSX: TMI)(TSX: TMI.B)(OTCQX: TMIAF) reports that on March 27, 2014, the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Caliente Office of the State of Nevada issued a Record of Decision ("RD") and a Finding of No Significant Impact ("FONSI") for TMI's Environmental Assessment (EA) covering the Nevada portion of the Gold Springs project. The acceptance of the Environmental Assessment means that the Company is free to begin the work proposed in its Plan of Operations, which envisions staged exploration activities focused on the expansion of the Grey Eagle resource and the future exploration of 13 of the 18 identified outcropping gold targets located in Nevada. Exploration and resource expansion activities are now authorized to proceed without the need for any additional permitting.

Ralph Fitch, President and CEO stated, "The issuance of the RD and associated FONSI is an important step in the advancement of the Gold Springs project. The Environmental Assessment included studies of plants, animals, and archaeology as well as public comment, so our ability to move forward following this process is an important commentary on the location and mining friendly jurisdiction in which Gold Springs is located. Our next step, as reported last week, is to complete a NI 43-101 compliant Preliminary Economic Assessment, subsequent to which we will develop plans for the future of the Project."

In the state of Utah, TMI will be initiating the Plan of Operations permitting process in the weeks to come and expects to have approvals before the end of the year. TMI is currently permitted for an additional 56 drill sites within Utah which allows for future resource expansion on the Jumbo target and exploration activities on other gold targets within Utah. Nevada and Utah represent very favorable mining jurisdictions which should allow for the continued development of the Company's Gold Springs assets in a timely fashion.

The Gold Springs Project:

Resources: (NR February 26, 2014)

The current Measured and Indicated resource was announced in the February 26, 2014 news release and stands at 21,289,000 tonnes @ 0.5 g/t Au and 9.8 g/t Ag for a contained 339,000 troy ounces gold and 6,687,000 troy ounces silver plus an inferred resource of 16,674,000 tonnes @ 0.4 g/t Au and 9.1 g/t Ag for an additional 214,000 troy ounces gold and 4,857,000 troy ounces silver using a 0.2 g/t Au cutoff. This equates to an M&I resource of 456,000 ounces AuEq averaging 0.67g/t AuEq and an additional 299,000 ounces AuEq @ 0.56 g/t AuEq in the Inferred category. The Inferred resource is in addition to the Measured and Indicated resource. Gold equivalent (AuEq) calculations reflect gross metal content using the gold/silver ratio of 57.14, and have not been adjusted for metallurgical recoveries.

To date, resource drilling has only been carried out on portions of two of 18 areas of outcropping gold mineralization and on none of the even more extensive geophysical anomalies at Gold Springs.

Management believes there is a significant opportunity to increase the resource.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
