Trend Technology and Americas Energy Company Begin Metallurgical Coal Exploration Process in Bledsoe County, TN

KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - October 21, 2009) - Trend Technology Corporation (OTCBB: TRET) and Americas Energy Company (AECo) announced today that AECo will begin exploration on its Bledsoe Coal Project. AECo is in the process of being acquired by TRET. The project is located in Bledsoe County, Tennessee on AECo’s approximately 1,700 acre lease. The Exploration will determine the feasibility of mining the 4.571 million ton metallurgical coal project.

"The Bledsoe Project was our first acquisition and represents the beginning of Americas Energy Company. To actually move forward on the permitting process is exciting because of the proven reserves of metallurgical grade coal. Metallurgical coal has maintained a much more profitable sales price in the recent downturn. We expect the sales price of our mid to high volatile metallurgical coal to exceed our thermal coal's recognized price," said Chris Headrick, President and Co-CEO of Americas Energy Company. Mr. Headrick added, "Upon completion of the core sample drilling, we plan to begin the permitting process to obtain our mining permit to exploit the 4,571,000 million tons of proven metallurgical grade coal in Bledsoe County, Tennessee. Americas Energy Company has also identified a new partner in Total Depth Drilling. Once we complete our exploration drilling in Bledsoe County, Tennessee we plan to initiate a drilling program with Tim Hall and Total Depth Drilling to prove up coal resources on our projects in Kentucky."
