TriMetals Mining Inc. Files First Quarter 2014 Financial Statements and MD&A

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- TriMetals Mining Inc. (TSX:TMI)(TSX:TMI.B)(OTCQX:TMIAF)(OTCQX:TMIBF), reports the release of its unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and the related management's discussion and analysis of financial position and results of operations ("MD&A"). In this press release, all amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

The exploration at Gold Springs budgeted for 2014 was revised upwards on April 21, 2014 to add an RC drilling program of approximately 25 holes and now amounts to $1,900,000 (previously $1,400,000). The program includes, among other things, completion and filing of a NI 43-101-compliant Technical Report that includes the updated 2014 resource estimate (completed and filed on SEDAR on March 19, 2014), completion and filing of a NI 43-101-compliant Technical Report that includes the PEA (completed and filed on SEDAR on May 1, 2014), the RC drilling aimed at expanding the estimated mineral resource, continuation of permitting activities including environmental and cultural studies, metallurgical test-work and other exploration activities.

With the addition of the RC drilling program at Gold Springs, the estimated working capital requirements for 2014, per the Company's amended plan, are now $5,700,000 (previously $5,200,000), of which $2,550,000 are for general and administrative expenses (operating activities) and $3,150,000 (previously $2,650,000) for investing activities which mainly include exploration work at Gold Springs and Escalones.

As at March 31, 2014, the Company had working capital of $8,929,595, including cash and cash equivalents of $9,710,165. As a consequence, the Company remains in a strong financial position to continue activities at its Escalones and Gold Springs projects, to fund the costs and expenses related to its international arbitration proceedings against Bolivia that are not otherwise covered by the Fund, and to meet its other working capital requirements for 2014.

The Company has undertaken a number of cost-saving initiatives to reduce General and Administrative expenses which includes, among others, closing its main office in Vancouver in Q4 2013, executives' salaries reduction, and a significant staff reduction. General and Administrative expenses decreased from $1,694,540 in Q1 2013 to $991,279 in Q1 2014 as shown in the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Outlook

The priorities of the Company for the remainder of 2014 are to (i) continue to explore the Gold Springs project with the intent to expand the resource estimate and move the project closer to production; (ii) seek an appropriate joint venture partner for the Escalones copper-gold porphyry project in Chile whilst continuing permitting activities and metallurgical testing; (iii) continue international arbitration proceedings against Bolivia to recover full compensation based on the fair market value for the Malku Khota project; and (iv) diligently continue managing and preserving the Company's cash resources.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
