April 14, 2010 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or
the “Company”) is pleased to update plans for the Company’s 100% owned
Key property, located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia.
The 7,882-ha Key project is strategically located and the Company
believes this greenfield area offers the potential for both precious
metals and volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) discoveries.
The area surrounding the Key project has become a focus of precious metals exploration and claim staking (see Project Location Map
The Key property adjoins the claims (~1,820 ha) on the Blackwater
project where Richfield Ventures Corp. has identified a bulk gold
deposit (September 25, 2009 news release). Richfield states the
mineralization has demonstrated continuity over hundreds of metres at
potentially mineable grades (100-200 m thick covering 45 ha). Richfield
plans a major drilling program in 2010 to define a NI 43-101 compliant
resource (March 30, 2010 news release). Silver Quest Resources Ltd.
controls the adjoining 3T’s project (~2,858 ha) and the Capoose project
(~ 15,754 ha) located approximately 10 km to the northwest. Other
companies with claims in the area include Gold Reach Resources Ltd. and
Amarc Resources Ltd.
Troymet’s 2008 VTEM survey of the Key project clearly delineated fault
systems which may be associated with gold-silver mineralization on the
Blackwater property. The survey identified four priority targets for
follow-up that are considered potential structurally-controlled
sulphide-alteration zones. The survey also identified a number of
intrusions which may have associated gold-silver mineralization. The Key
project contains rocks of similar age and type to those hosting gold
mineralization on the Blackwater property, and have never been explored
for gold-silver mineralization. As well, the geological setting of the
Key project has strong parallels to that of the gold- and silver-rich
Eskay Creek deposit in northwestern British Columbia.
Troymet has completed its compilation and integration of historic
technical data with the results of the VTEM survey. The Company plans a
2010 summer field program, including diamond drilling, to advance the
project. The field program is scheduled to commence in late April-early
