Trigon Comments on Timing of Henry Mountains Program Completion and Exercises Wray Mesa Option


    KELOWNA, BC, Oct. 3 /CNW/ - Trigon Uranium Corp. (TSX-V:TEL; "Trigon" or
the "Company") reports that drilling on the Henry Mountains property is
progressing well. As previously reported (see September 19, 2007 Press
Release) the commencement of drilling on September 13, 2007 involved a delay
of nine days from the original planned starting date. Drilling carried out so
far has encountered favourable ground conditions despite drilling depths of up
to 1,500 ft. Based on experience to date, the time required to effectively
drill, log and complete a hole is up to seven days including setup time and
other down time. The Company therefore anticipates that the complete results
of the drill program will be released by mid-November or shortly thereafter.
Drilling on the Henry Mountains property is being performed by Diversified
Drilling LLC of Missoula, Montana. All holes are gamma logged by Century
Geophysical Corp. of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
    The Company also announced that it has exercised its option to acquire
the Wray Mesa Uranium Property (the "Property"). The Property covers more than
15,000 acres in the La Sal uranium district of south eastern Utah. The Company
had previously entered into a Lease and Option Agreement to acquire the
Property from Future Energy LLC, a Utah company (see December 27, 2006 press
    Significant uranium deposits occur in the sandstones of the Salt Wash and
Brushy Basin members of the Morrison Formation in the La Sal district, which
is located approximately 30 miles southeast of Moab in south eastern Utah.
Uranium was discovered on the Property in 1969, when Bokum Corporation
("Bokum") carried out a limited drilling program. Bokum intersected uranium
mineralization at depths averaging 230 ft below surface. The Property is
favourably located with its western boundary situated within 1/2 mile of the
Pandora uranium mine. Several uranium deposits are believed to adjoin the
property to the East.
    Under the terms of the Option Agreement, Trigon will issue 200,000 shares
to Future Energy LLC in order to complete the acquisition. The shares are
issued at a price of $0.36 per share, for a total consideration valued at
$72,000. The Company is currently considering various options to finance its
exploration of the Property.
