October 2, 2009 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the
“Company”) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a diamond drill
to the North prospect of its Golden Eagle project in northern British
Columbia to test a number of gold targets that are not amenable to
stripping or trenching. These targets have never been drilled. A program
of stream sediment sampling and prospecting is also underway.
The Golden Eagle project lies at the southern end of the Tintina Gold
Belt, which contains many intrusion-related gold deposits such as Pogo
(Alaska), Fort Knox (Alaska), Dublin Gulch (Yukon) and the recent
discovery at Underworld Resources’ White Gold property near Dawson City
(Yukon). Another significant discovery in the Tintina Gold Belt was
recently announced on Atac Resources’ Rau property north of Mayo
The structurally controlled gold-silver-arsenic-antimony mineralization
and gold-in-soil anomalies on the North prospect occur over an area of
~5 x 5 kilometres. The mineralization and the anomalies are related to
two major structures — the Ben Fault and the Paddy Fault — and to an
underlying granite-related gold system. The Ben Fault is a minimum of
3.6 km long and has never been drilled, while the Paddy Fault is a
minimum of 4.6 km long — both are possible splays of the Llewellyn
fault, a major mineralizing structure in northwestern BC. The structure
has not been drilled apart from limited drilling on the Skarn zone (~250
metres). This drilling intercepted significant gold mineralization but
did not test the underlying granite contact.
The Company believes the north prospect may host one or more bulk-tonnage gold deposits.
Troymet is a junior exploration company with precious and base metal
projects located in British Columbia and Manitoba, Canada. The Company
is actively seeking partners to advance its highly prospective
properties and continues to seek new projects with high-value and
large-tonnage potential to add to its portfolio.
