Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") announces that it completed a private placement of 7,873,059 common shares. Kallpa Securities SAB of Lima, Peru ("Kallpa") acted as agent in the offering of Trevali's shares to qualified South American investors on a commercially reasonable best-efforts basis.

A cash commission of 7% of the gross proceeds of the private placement was paid by the Company to Kallpa as consideration for arranging the private placement. Completion of the private placement is subject to customary conditions including, but not limited to, the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The securities issued pursuant to the private placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day expiring on December 25, 2011.

The net proceeds from the private placement are intended to be used to advance the Company's Santander mine development project and for general working capital purposes.

The Company and Kallpa are currently working towards increasing the private placement up to USD$15,000,000 through the issuance of up to an additional 3,490,577 shares to qualified South American investors. The closing of this additional amount of Trevali's common shares is slated for the last week of August 2011.

Trevali is advancing two polymetallic (zinc-lead-silver-copper) deposits to production in Canada and Peru – the Halfmile and Santander projects respectively. In Canada, Trevali has the Halfmile and Stratmat polymetallic deposits near Bathurst, New Brunswick, and the Ruttan copper-zinc deposit in northern Manitoba. Mine development is underway at Halfmile with a proposed production rate of 2,000-tonnes-per-day anticipated to commence in late 2011. In Peru, the Company has the Santander zinc-lead-silver mine project and the formerly-producing Huampar silver mine, both located in the Central Peruvian Polymetallic Belt.

At Santander, in conjunction with Glencore International A.G., mine commissioning is anticipated to commence at 2,000-tonne-per-day in early 2012 with full production to follow immediately thereafter. Additionally through its subsidiary Trevali Renewable Energy Inc., Trevali is undertaking a significant upgrade of its wholly-owned Tingo run-of-river hydroelectric generating facility along with transmission line upgrades and extensions to allow, in addition to supplying power to the mining operation on the property, the potential sale of surplus power into the Peruvian National Energy Grid.
