TORONTO – September 15, 2022 – Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) announces results from drilling of new mineralization targets at Kombat Mine in Namibia (the “Project”). These results are from the East 400 area, 150 metres east of the of the Kavango Pit, discussed in the August 4, 2022 press release, extending the Kombat trend mineralization.
Highlights of the Drill Results
Holes from the East 400 area:
Hole 5B (azimuth 180.0, dip -50.0)
- 4.0 m at 7.67 % copper and 10.73 g/t silver from 35.0m and,
- 3.0 m at 0.98 % Cu from 67.0 m.
Hole 7A (azimuth 180.0, dip -70.0)
- 2.0 m at 1.19 % copper and 9.98g/t silver from 33.0m.
Hole 7B (azimuth 167,9, dip -49.0)
- 4.0m of 2.25% copper and 5.49g/t silver from 30.0m and,
- 3.0m or 1.02 copper and 4.19g/t silver from 42.0m.
Hole 7C (azimuth 180.0, dip -55.0)
- 6.0m of 1.02% copper and 10.42 g/t silver, from 50.0m.
Jed Richardson, President and CEO, commented, “Drilling continues to intercept massive sulfide copper mineralization. High grade intercepts in hole 5B and 7B improve the average grade as we delineate more tonnes of near surface mineralization and prepare for the restart of open pit mining.”

East 400 drilling lies directly east of the Kavango Pit and the Fat Avo area. This drilling ties together some isolated drilling that had occurred in this area from underground.

The shaded yellow area is the East 400 zone. Red circles show newly drilled +1% intercepts. Blue circles represent historic drilling. The circled red areas are known mineralized areas in the resource.

The mineralization appears to hold together quite well. The traces for Holes 7D and 7D1 appear on the figure. They are proposed to test the continuity of the mineralization between the known drill holes.
