Trivello Acquires Copper-Gold Porphyry Project in British Columbia

VANCOUVER, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - Trivello Energy Corp. (TSX-V "TRV"; Frankfurt "T6U1") (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Day Copper-Gold Porphyry Property and related claims, located approximately 380km northeast of Prince George, British Columbia.

About the Day Porphyry Project

The Day occurrence is located in north-central British Columbia and is host to significant porphyry gold-copper mineralization. The occurrence was discovered and previously drilled by Falconbridge. Drilling in the early 1970s produced several significant intersections including 0.67% copper and 0.84 g/t gold across 58.83 m, and Hole 74-4 with 14.94 m of 0.61% copper and 1.92 g/t gold.

The project is located in the Toodoggone region of north central British Columbia, approximately 50 km south of Northgate Mineral's Kemess South Mine. The Kemess South Mine is host to proven reserves of 22.7 MT of 0.28 g/t gold and 0.14 % copper. This year, the mine is forecast to produce 102,500 ounces of gold and 47.6 million pounds of copper.

The area between the Toodoggone region in the north and the Mt. Milligan region in the south has seen significant increased mineral exploration for copper, gold, and silver deposits in recent years. Notable porphyry projects in the belt include: Northgate Minerals Corp's. (TSX:NGX) Kemess South and North Projects, Terrane Metals Corp's (TSXv:TRX) Mount Milligan Project, and Serengeti Resources Inc's (TSXv:SIR) Kwanika Project.

Project Highlights:

    
    -   Copper-gold porphyry exploration property situated in the Toodoggone
        region of north-central British Columbia.

    -   Discovered in 1972 by Falconbridge; which drilled eight holes
        (totaling 1360 meters) including 60 meters of 1.5% Cu as well as:
           DDH 74-1: 0.67% Cu, 0.84 g/t Au over 58.83 meters
           DDH 74-4: 0.61% Cu, 1.92 g/t Au over 14.94 meters

    -   Target displays porphyry exploration hallmarks:
        1. Anomalous copper/gold geochemistry in soil (greater than
           200 ppm Cu; greater than 50 ppb Au)
        2. Higher magnetic susceptibility (800 nT above background in the
           area)
        3. Strong IP chargeability

    -   Hosted by an altered dacite porphyry that contains significant
        bornite and chalcopyrite associated with quartz flooding.

    -   Soil geochemistry, and grid-controlled geophysics, have outlined
        three extension targets to the Day Zone:
        1. Northern copper/gold soil anomaly, with coincident angular
           mineralized bodies
        2. Southern copper soil anomaly, parallel but weaker than the
           northern anomaly
        3. Northern magnetic anomaly, with associated IP chargeability
           anomaly north of and subparallel to the Day zone.

The technical information provided above for the Day Porphyry Project was prepared by Jeff Reeder, P.Geol, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Certain exploration results referred to above are historical in nature and were compiled before NI 43-101. Trivello has not independently analyzed the results of the previous exploration therefore the historical results should not be relied upon. Trivello believes these historical results provide an indication of the potential of the properties and are relevant to ongoing exploration.

Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, Trivello will acquire a 100% interest in the Day Porphyry Project and related claims from Zimtu Capital Corp. and 877384 Alberta Ltd. Total consideration of the Acquisition is $50,000 cash and the issuance of 5.0 million common shares. The acquisition remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. As the Company will be issuing more than 10% of the current issued and outstanding share capital to non-arm's length parties, shareholder approval of the acquisition will be sought at the Company's Annual General Meeting, to be held in Vancouver, BC on September 8, 2010.
