Trend Exploration Signs Kurchum River Purchase Agreement

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - April 2, 2007) - Trend Exploration, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:TRDX), a U.S. based junior mineral exploration company (formerly operating under the name West Excelsior Enterprises, Inc.), today announced it has signed a purchase agreement to acquire a 40 percent interest in the Kurchum River gold property located in the eastern province of Kazakhstan.

The agreement enables Trend Exploration to move beyond grassroots exploration to more detailed exploration and production of the 303 square kilometer gold property. Trend Exploration's interest in the site is due largely in part to the forecasted upside exploration potential, as well as the immediate cash flow generation from production, which will start immediately after commencing operation. Moreover, the Company has undertaken certain financial obligations to enable the funding of the operation.

"Trend Exploration's mandate is to seek out and acquire high potential properties with world class mineral assets," said Michael Whitehead, President and CEO, Trend Exploration, Inc. "By acquiring 40 percent interest in the Kurchum River gold property through this purchase agreement, we demonstrate our ability to realize our mandate, and continue to successfully grow our asset base while also building our operational potential."

Trend Exploration continues to seek out additional interests in the eastern province of Kazakhstan, an area noted for its gold output potential. In addition, the Company also continues to evaluate other mineral properties for potential acquisition or joint venture opportunities in Mexico.
