Trigon opens Colorado Office to Manage U.S. Operations

    KELOWNA, BC, March 27 /CNW/ - Trigon Uranium Corp. ("Trigon" or the
"Company") (TSX-V:TEL) today announced that the company is opening a United
States office in Golden, Colorado. Golden is a suburb of Denver. The new
office will be managed by Thomas F. Buchholz, Trigon's Senior Mining Engineer.
The company's uranium exploration and development operations in the United
States will be managed primarily from the Golden office. This will include due
diligence in respect of new projects, and project planning and management.
Trigon is currently expanding its geological and engineering staff to meet the
needs of its growth.
    Mr. Sidney Himmel, President and CEO of Trigon stated: "We are very
pleased to be opening our new office in Golden, Colorado. Golden is the home
of the Colorado School of Mines and is conveniently located to support
exploration and development in Utah and Colorado. In addition to the
development of our current portfolio of properties in Utah we intend to
acquire mines in the Colorado Plateau and expand into Wyoming and New Mexico.
These efforts will be headed up from the Golden office. It should be noted
that while historically uranium development commenced in Colorado, the largest
uranium resources in the United States are located in Wyoming and New Mexico.
We intend to expand into these states by way of joint ventures and
acquisition. We are also looking forward to our Marysvale drill program, which
will start at the beginning of April, and the upcoming Henry Mountains drill
program, which is scheduled to commence in May."
