Trelawney Announces Chester Drill Program

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2009) - Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRR) is pleased to announce the commencement of a 1,700 metre drill program on the Company's Chester Property located halfway between Timmins and Sudbury in Northern Ontario. The Chester Property was the site of extensive underground exploration on the #3 vein in the 1980s. Existing infrastructure include a production-ready (3 metres x 5 metres) decline with a length of 5,550 feet (1,675 metres) to vertical depth of 500 feet (150 metres) level, and over 2,300 feet (700 metres) of lateral development on five levels. Historical resources of 159,000 tons grading 0.43 opt (144,500 tonnes at 14.7 grams) were identified from the previous exploration activities. The Company has not completed sufficient work to classify the historical resources as current resources; accordingly these historical estimates should not be relied upon.

The majority of the exploration conducted on the Chester Property during the 1980's was located above the 200 metre level. The focus of the current drill program is to test the downdip extension of known gold bearing structures to a depth of 300 metres. Mineralization identified from this drilling may be accessed by extending the current decline. Previous underground exploration in the area encountered significant gold values as shown in the adjacent table.
