January 16, 2009 Troymet Exploration Corp. (“Troymet” or the “Company”): Further to a press release dated January 2, 2009, Troymet is pleased to announce that it has completed a second closing of a non-brokered private placement consisting of 600,000 units (“Units”) issued at a price of $0.025 per Unit for gross proceeds of $15,000. Each Unit consists of one common share (issued on a non-flow-through basis) and one full common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable into one common share for two years from the date of issuance at a price of $0.05 during the first year of the Warrant and at $0.10 during the second year of the Warrant. All of the securities issued in connection with the second closing of the private placement are subject to a four-month hold period (until May 17, 2009).

In the first closing, announced on January 2, 2009, the Corporation issued 9,200,000 common shares of the Corporation issued on a “flow-through” basis (“Flow-Through Shares”) at a price of $0.025 per Flow-Through Share for gross proceeds of $230,000 and 700,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.025 per Unit for gross proceeds of $17,500. Combined proceeds of both tranches of the private placement totaling $262,500 will be used to carry out exploration and development on Troymet’s current properties, to pay accounts payable and for general working capital.
