Trilogy Metals Announces Date of Annual Shareholders Meeting and Provides Update on Ambler Access Road

March 28, 2024

March 28, 2024 - Vancouver, British Columbia – Trilogy Metals Inc. (TSX / NYSE American: TMQ) ("Trilogy Metals” or "the Company”) will hold the Company’s 2024 Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders (“AGM”) on Wednesday, May 22, 2024 at 10:00 am Pacific Time at the office of the Company, Suite 1150, 609 Granville Street, Vancouver, British Columbia.

All current directors will stand for re-election at the AGM. Other items of business include the approval of unallocated entitlements under the Company’s 2012 Equity Incentive Plan. Pursuant to Toronto Stock Exchange rules, all unallocated options, rights and entitlements require shareholder approval every three years following institution of the plan.

The Company is also asking shareholders to approve the adoption of a new 2024 Non-Employee Directors Fixed Deferred Share Unit Plan (“Fixed DSU Plan”). Prior to 2022, the directors were only allowed to elect to take up to 50% of their annual retainers in deferred share units (“DSUs”) and the remainder of their fees was paid out in cash. Since 2022, due to cash preservation efforts, the Company’s non-executive directors have been taking 100% of their directors’ fees in DSUs, for which they will receive common shares of the Company upon their retirement from the Board of Directors. This effort has saved cash outflows for the Company but, as a result, more DSUs have been issued. The Company’s existing DSU Plan has a limited number of units available for future grants to directors and, to continue with cash-saving efforts, the Company proposed to set aside 1,200,000 common shares for grants to non-executive directors in a new Fixed DSU Plan. To reduce further dilution for the shareholders of the Company, the Board of Directors has approved the termination of the Ambler Metals Equity Plan, which has 1,181,519 common shares available for future grants, upon shareholder approval of the new Fixed DSU Plan. The Company’s largest shareholder Electrum Strategic Opportunities Fund L.P. is in favor of the proposal.

Shareholders as of the record date of March 27, 2024 will be eligible to vote at the AGM. The Company’s 2024 Management Information Circular (also called a proxy statement), which contains information about all director nominees and other items of business was filed today and is now available to the public. As always, we encourage you to vote your shares prior to the AGM.

No presentations or updates on the Company’s activities will be provided at the AGM. The Company’s most recent investor presentation can be found on our website at Any investor who would like further information on the items of business at the AGM or the Company’s activities is welcome to contact us directly.

Ambler Access Project

On March 18, 2024 the United States Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) filed its 11th status report with the Courts stating that it posted the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (“SEIS”) on its ePlanning website on October 13, 2023 and published notice of availability of the Draft SEIS in the Federal Register on October 20, 2023. The public comment period ended on December 22, 2023. The BLM conducted several public meetings concerning the Draft SEIS, and conducted associated ANILCA Section 810 hearings on subsistence use in communities affected by the project. The BLM had previously reported that it anticipated publishing a Final SEIS in the first quarter of calendar year 2024, but now anticipates publishing a Final SEIS in the second quarter of calendar year 2024. The BLM continues to anticipate publishing a Record of Decision within the second quarter of calendar year 2024.
