Trio Resources, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2013 Operating Results

TORONTO, Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trio Resources, Inc. ("Trio" or the "Company") (OTCBB: TRII; www.trioresources.com) is pleased to report its operating results for the third quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Third Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Generated revenues of $172,016 in the third quarter, an increase of 3.4% from revenues of $166,299 in the second quarter of 2013;
  • Secured $650,000 in privately-arranged short-term financing to fund working capital needs; and  
  • Received new assay results estimating above ground assets contain 53 ounces of silver per ton.

"During the third quarter, we made progress monetizing our extensive stockpiles of mineralized materials. Revenues grew 4.0% sequentially as we continued to ship the materials on our Duncan Kerr Property to our off-takers for processing," stated Duncan Reid, CEO of Trio Resources, Inc. "Recently, we received revised assay results that estimated some of the above ground assets originally estimated at 40 ounces of silver per ton actually contain as much as 53 ounces of silver per ton, well above the initial findings. This news bodes well for our future performance, allowing us to command a higher price for our materials and generate stronger cash flows."  

Mr. Reid concluded, "We are also taking aggressive steps to ramp up exploration and development activities on our Duncan Kerr property. In the coming weeks, we expect to begin crushing and assaying for our Bankable Resource Feasibility Study, which we can use to secure long-term financing should the need arise. Overall, we are excited about our progress and the steps we are taking as we continue to execute on our growth strategy and further build shareholder value."
