Trigon to Start Drilling in the Henry Mountains Immediately after Labour Day


    KELOWNA, BC, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Trigon Uranium Corp. ("Trigon" or the
"Company"); TSX-V: TEL today announced that drilling of the Henry Mountains
project in Utah is to commence on September 4, 2007. The project is located
adjacent to some of Utah's largest known uranium deposits. The aim of the
program is to confirm that uranium mineralization extends onto Trigon's
property. Trigon initially plans to drill ten holes to an average depth of
1,700 feet. It is anticipated that the program will be completed by the end of
    Sidney Himmel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the company
stated: "We are delighted to start this drill program on one of our most
significant properties. The Henry Mountains property covers more than
20,000 acres of land immediately west of the large known uranium deposits
owned by Denison Mines Corp. and Uranium One Inc. ("Uranium One") We have had
a busy summer planning and preparing for the drill program, including
environmental permitting, drill site selection, road building and drill pad
construction. We now look forward to a successful follow up."
    Trigon's drill program targets uranium mineralization in the Salt Wash
Member sandstones of the Jurassic Morrison Formation. To confirm that uranium
mineralization continues onto Trigon's property, holes will be drilled in
closely spaced patterns focussing in two main areas on the property. The drill
hole patterns are designed to maximize the likelihood of intersecting
mineralization along the trend of the neighbouring uranium deposits. All the
drill holes will be gamma-logged for equivalent uranium content, and samples
of drill cuttings will be taken for chemical assay of uranium.
    The program will be carried out by Trigon field geologists under the
direction of Mr. B.L. Berman, CPG, Technical Advisor to the company with over
20 years of uranium experience. Drilling will be carried out by Diversified
Drilling of Missoula, Montana. Gamma logging of the drill holes will be
performed by Century Geophysical Corp. of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
    Trigon's exploration and development property in the Henry Mountains
uranium district is located in a highly prospective area centered
15 kilometres north of Uranium One's Shootaring Canyon uranium mill at
Ticaboo. The known uranium deposits adjacent to Trigon's property reportedly
host more than 20 Million lbs of U(3)O(8). These deposits form elongate,
largely continuous trends and Trigon considers the potential for further
discoveries in the area to be excellent.
