Troymet Completes Drilling at Golden Eagle

November 29, 2011 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the “Company”) reports the diamond drilling program (6 holes - 867.15 metres) on the North prospect of its 100% owned Golden Eagle project in British Columbia, has been successfully completed.

A 10.5 km pole-dipole induced polarization survey was completed over the West Gully grid, in September-October 2011. The west Gully target comprises a granitic intrusive with structurally hosted gold mineralization. Several chargeability targets were identified including anomalies that occur along strike of hole N0901 (0.11 g/t gold over 86.84 metres including 0.33 g/t over 15.24 metres; News Release of February 17, 2010). Three holes tested chargeability targets over a distance of approximately 500 metres along strike of hole N0901. The chargeability targets are partly aligned along a drainage with anomalous gold-in-silt values. One hole was drilled at 180 degrees to N0901; this hole was lost in a cave associated with old workings with the result that the depth extension of the mineralization was not tested. One hole tested a chargeability target along the northeast faulted contact of the intrusive. Drainages rising in this area contain anomalous gold-in-silt values.

One hole was drilled in the Skarn zone before weather conditions forced the termination of the program. A more extensive helicopter supported drill program had been planned. This program has now been deferred to 2012. The Skarn zone comprises an approximately 2.0 km long target. Historic drilling was confined to approximately 260 metres and intersections ranged from 1.28 g/t gold over 6.0 metres to 7.64 g/t gold over 3.45 metres (News Release - June 25, 2009). Significant areas of the Skarn zone remain to be drill tested in 2012.

The induced polarization survey was conducted by Aurora Geosciences Ltd. On-site supervision of the diamond drill program was also provided by Aurora.

The 8,178-hectare Golden Eagle project is located in northwestern British Columbia, just south of the BC-Yukon border. The South Klondike Highway runs through the centre of the property, providing excellent access from Whitehorse, Yukon, 90 kilometres to the north. The project is situated 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 White Gold property near Dawson City (Yukon).

The northern portion of the Golden Eagle property is shown by the British Columbia Geological Survey’s stream sediment sampling to contain exceptionally anomalous values in gold (to 1,080 ppb), gold indicator metals (arsenic, antimony and mercury) and base metals (BCGS Bulletin 105). Multiple zones of gold-silver-arsenic-antimony mineralization, including the West Gully and Skarn, and gold-in-soil anomalies occur in this ~5 x 5 kilometre area, known as the North prospect

Drill core samples are being analyzed by ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. an ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratory. Troymet maintains a QAQC program whereby standard samples and blanks are inserted into each batch of samples to ensure quality control. Results will be reported once received, interpreted and validated.
