Troilus Provides Operational Update

March 28, 2024, Montreal, Quebec – Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX: TLG; OTCQX: CHXMF; FRA: CM5R) (“Troilus” or the “Company”), provides an operational update related to the advancement of its gold-copper Troilus Project (“Troilus” or the “Project”), located in northcentral Quebec; one of the largest undeveloped gold equivalent deposits in North America.

Operational Update

The Feasibility Study for the Troilus Project is proceeding well, as the various components of the report approach finalization to create a cohesive picture of the potential future operation. Results from trade-off studies undertaken to finalize optimal size and scope of the future mine against expected CAPEX, generated outcomes that have presented an opportunity to reassess the proposed scale of the Project while prioritizing the production of copper and higher-grade gold in the early years of contemplated production to align with the Quebec Government’s Strategic Metals Initiative. On the recommendation of the Feasibility Study Technical Team, Troilus’ Senior Management and its Board of Directors have determined that these results are expected to achieve the best outcome possible. The Technical Team has been applying this new information to the extensive work prepared to date for the Feasibility Study and projects a few more weeks to incorporate these results into the final design and mine plan. As such, the Feasibility Study is now expected to be released in May 2024.   

Justin Reid, CEO of Troilus, commented, “While we are all eager to achieve the major milestone of publishing the Feasibility Study and launching Troilus to its next stage of development, we know that the decisions we make now could have implications for decades to come. We believe we have identified an opportunity to further optimize the Troilus Project and that it is in the interests of all stakeholders to apply these new results to our existing body of work for the Feasibility Study. This includes ensuring alignment with the Quebec government’s focus on the production of strategic metals since Troilus is the largest permitting-stage copper project in the province based on our current mineral resource estimate.”

Warrant Exercises

Troilus is pleased to report a cash injection of approximately $3 million to date this month from the exercise of approximately 40% of the warrants issued as part of the bought deal financing completed in November 2023.

Justin Reid, CEO of Troilus, commented, “We see these exercises as a vote of confidence from some of our major shareholders. These warrant exercises infuse cash into our treasury, strengthening our financial position as we progress Troilus towards a construction decision.”

The 435 km² Troilus property is located in the top-rated mining jurisdiction of Quebec, Canada, within the prospective Frôtet-Evans Greenstone Belt. From 1996 to 2010, the Troilus Mine produced +2 million ounces of gold and nearly 70,000 tonnes of copper. Since acquiring the project in 2017, ongoing exploration success has demonstrated the tremendous scale of the gold system on the property, which currently hosts 11.21 Moz AuEq (508.3 Mt with an average grade of 0.69 g/t AuEq) in the Indicated Mineral Resource category and 1.80 Moz AuEq (80.5 Mt with an average grade of 0.69 g/t AuEq) in the Inferred Mineral Resource category, making it the largest undeveloped gold deposit in Canada. Led by an experienced team with a track-record of successful mine development, Troilus is positioned to become a cornerstone project in North America.
