Yellowcake will be the operator of the joint venture and will arrange for the preparation of a NI 43-101 technical report.

William ("Bill") Tafuri, President at Yellowcake stated, "Trinity represents an outstanding opportunity for Yellowcake to explore and develop a strong silver mineralized system and past producer with the view of realizing the large-scale, bulk mineable potential. Opportunities of this nature are few and far between and Trinity is a natural fit with Yellowcake's long-term strategic objective of moving into precious metals and developing a strong pipeline of projects in our focus area of the Western United States. This initial program will be to complete a NR 43-101 compliant technical report and resource estimate on the known deposit; to test the high grade silver mineralization below the Trinity mine that was confirmed by the AuEx drilling in 2006; and expand the known silver resource. There are excellent related targets on the property that need to be brought to the drilling stage."

History

Silver mineralization was discovered at Trinity by U.S. Borax in 1981 and was subsequently explored under a joint venture between U.S. Borax and Santa Fe Pacific Gold Corp. from 1982 until 1986 leading to the development of the Trinity mine that was in production for just over two years. Only the oxide portion of the deposit was mined leaving the partially drilled out sulfide portion of the deposit in place. The property was subsequently explored further by Santa Fe Pacific Gold in the period 1990 to 1992. AuEx drilled 10 core holes in 2007 and 25 reverse circulation holes in 2008. The 2007 drilling verified the presence of high grade silver mineralization in the sulfide zone below the old Trinity mine. Mine Development Associates, a geologic and engineering consulting services firm, of Reno, NV, made a non 43-101 compliant resource estimate in April 2008.
