MONTREAL, June 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Troilus Gold Corp. (“Troilus” or the “Company”, TSX: TLG; OTCQX: CHXMF; FSE: CM5R) advises that in response to worsening forest fire conditions in the Eeyou-Istchee James Bay region of northern Quebec over the weekend, the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources & Forests announced prohibitions regarding forest access on Crown lands and closed roads for reasons of public safety. The Route du Nord, which provides the only road access to the Troilus site, is currently closed.
