21, 2010 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the
“Company”) is pleased to update exploration progress on its 100% owned,
7,882-hectare Key property, located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof,
Exploration to date has focused on certain geological structural targets
that have acted as feeders and conduits for sulphide mineralization.
These targets lie within the area covered by a VTEM survey (see VTEM - Survey Area
) and are clearly evident in the airborne geophysics (see VTEM - 1st VD
Multiple N- and NNW- trending faults have been mapped in the area by the
British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS), together with a similar
sequence of rock types to that occurring on the immediately adjoining
Blackwater project of Richfield Ventures Corp. where a bulk gold deposit
has been discovered (September 25, 2009 news release). The structural
interpretation of the geophysical data generally supports the mapping of
the BCGS. The Company believes a number of major structures continue
from the Key project onto the Blackwater project.
Four electromagnetic (EM) targets, which potentially represent
structurally-controlled sulphide-alteration zones, have been prospected
(see VTEM - EM Targets
). Alteration and sulphides were found in the area of anomaly P1A. The other three EM targets are not exposed.
Magnetite veins, garnet and potassic feldspar and epidote alteration
occur in the area of a buried intrusive, interpreted from geophysics, in
the southeast corner of the VTEM survey area (see VTEM - Magnetics
The alteration may be indicative of alkali porphyry-style gold-copper
mineralization. A second intrusion identified by the VTEM survey will
also be explored for gold and/or copper mineralization.
The regional scale of the structures that acted as plumbing systems for
the introduction of alteration and sulphide mineralization is
impressive. Outcrop exposure on the property is limited; however, ground
geophysical surveys such as induced polarization can be used to map
sulphides along the structures. As well, many areas are amenable to
A large area of this greenfield property remains to be explored. The
early discovery of structurally-controlled sulphide mineralization
associated with regional structures, however, is a significant
development, as is the recognition of two intrusives which may have
associated gold and/or copper mineralization.
Samples from the current field program have been sent to the ALS Chemex
prep facility in Whitehorse, Yukon. Pulps will be sent to the ALS Chemex
laboratory in Vancouver, BC for analysis. Results will be reported
following receipt and compilation.
