Troymet Completes VTEM Survey on McClarty Lake VMS Property

March 5, 2008 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the detailed helicopter-borne VTEM survey over its McClarty Lake property, located 47 kilometres southwest of Snow Lake, Manitoba. The VTEM survey, completed by GEOTECH Ltd., was flown to better define the extent of the +600-metre long conductor system associated with the VMS mineralization discovered in 2007 (Reference: Sept. 26, 2007 news release), and to test for the presence of other conductors which may also have associated VMS mineralization.

The 3,000-metre program drilling program currently underway to delineate the McClarty VMS discovery will also test any new targets identified by the VTEM survey.

The McClarty volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization is a new discovery in a significantly under-explored area, and the Company believes the potential for further discovery is excellent. The property is located approximately 24 kilometres southeast of the VMS Ventures’ Reed Lake discovery and approximately 45 kilometres south-southeast of HudBay Minerals’ Lalor Lake discovery.

The McClarty Lake property comprises five contiguous mineral claims totalling 596 hectares. Troymet owns 100% of three of the claims staked in 2000 and holds an option to obtain a 60% interest in two claims (252 hectares) from Hudson Bay Exploration and Development (HBED).

The exploration program is being managed by Equity Engineering Ltd. of Vancouver, BC. Tracy Hurley, PGeo, Vice President, Exploration and qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 is responsible for the technical information provided in this release.
