CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) - The joint operating committee of Trio Gold Corp. (Trio) (TSX VENTURE:TGK) (PINK SHEETS:TROOF) and Amarok Resources Inc. (Amarok) have signed a drilling contract to commence a drill program in early May, 2010. The first phase of this program will test a minimum of three prime gold targets which have not been previously drill tested. Funding for this program will be provided by Amarok, as announced in Trio's March 17 and February 9, 2010 press releases.

The Rodeo Creek property is located in the northern portion of the prolific gold-producing Carlin Trend which hosts as many as 30 producing gold mines, on which more than 100 million ounces of gold production and inventory have been identified, including the world class Goldstrike, Meikle and Carlin mines.

One of the selected drill target's will be along a fault system which hosts gold in Barrick's Storm deposit located 1.5 kilometers to the SE of the property. All targets will be drilled to test the gold potential in the Popovich formation. The Popovich Formation is the host rock to more than 85% of all the deposits along the Carlin Trend.
