Trevali Announces Approval of Shareholders Rights Plan

June 2, 2010
Vancouver, British Columbia... Trevali Resources Corp. ("Trevali" or the "Company") (CNSX: TV, Frankfurt: 4TI, Pink Sheets: TREVF) is pleased to announce that at its Annual General Meeting held on May 27, 2010, its shareholders overwhelmingly approved all resolutions including the shareholders rights plan that was adopted by the Company's board of Directors on April 22, 2010. The plan was supported by 100 percent of the votes cast by shareholders in person and by proxy.

The rights plan was adopted to ensure the fair treatment of shareholders in connection with any takeover bid for common shares of the Company. The rights plan was not adopted in response to any proposal to acquire control of the Company. The rights plan will expire at the end of the third annual general meeting of the Company's shareholders following this approval, unless renewed by the shareholders.

SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN

The purpose of the Shareholder Rights Plan is to provide shareholders and the Board with adequate time to consider and evaluate any unsolicited bid made for the Company, to provide the Board with adequate time to identify, develop and negotiate value-enhancing alternatives, if considered appropriate, to any such unsolicited bid, to encourage the fair treatment of shareholders in connection with any take-over bid for the Company and to ensure that any proposed transaction is in the best interests of the Company's shareholders.

The rights issued under the Shareholder Rights Plan will become exercisable only if a person, together with its affiliates, associates and joint actors, acquires or announces its intention to acquire beneficial ownership of shares which, when aggregated with its current holdings, total 20% or more of the Company's outstanding common shares (determined in the manner set out in the Shareholder Rights Plan), other than by a Permitted Bid. Permitted Bids must be made by way of a take-over bid circular prepared in compliance with applicable securities laws and, among other conditions, must remain open for 60 days. If a take-over bid does not meet the Permitted Bid requirements of the Shareholder Rights Plan, the rights will entitle shareholders, other than any shareholder or shareholders making the take-over bid, to purchase additional common shares of the Company at a substantial discount to the market price of the common shares at that time.

A copy of the Shareholder Rights Plan agreement has been filed on SEDAR.
