November 1, 2010 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (“Troymet”): Further to press releases dated October 18, 2010 and October 22, 2010, Troymet has completed the first tranche closing of a non-brokered private placement consisting of 5,567,500 units at a price of $0.15 per unit for gross proceeds of $835,125 and 7,690,277 common shares issued on a “flow-through” basis at a price of $0.18 per common share for gross proceeds of $1,384,250. Aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of both units and flow-through shares on the first tranche of the private placement totaled $2,219,375. Each unit consists of one common share (a “Common Share”) and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each full Warrant is exercisable for two years from closing into one Common Share at $0.25 per share for the first year from closing and $0.35 per share for the second year from closing.

A finder’s fee of $148,868 was paid to six finders. In addition, 888,304 finder’s warrants (each a “Finder’s Warrant”) were issued with each Finder’s Warrant being exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the Finder’s Warrants. All of the securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a four-month and one day hold period (until March 2, 2011).

In addition to the private placement, Troymet is also pleased to report that over the past month warrant holders have exercised 3,120,000 Common Share purchase warrants at $0.10 per share for gross proceeds of $312,000.

Aggregate gross proceeds of the private placement and the warrant exercise total $2,531,375. These proceeds will be used for Troymet’s exploration programs at the Key and Golden Eagle properties in British Columbia, and at the McClarty Lake property in Manitoba, and for general corporate purposes.

There may be a second closing on or before November 10, 2010.

The completion of the private placement is subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval.
