TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2008) - Trelawney Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TRR) announces that it has terminated its earn-in agreement with West Timmins Mining Inc. ("WTM") regarding the La Bufa copper-gold-silver project located in Chihuahua, Mexico (see press release dated November 26, 2007). Under the terms of the termination agreement, Trelawney will issue 1,000,000 common shares to WTM in satisfaction of all cash payment obligations and exploration commitments under the original earn-in agreement.
