Troymet Reports: New Gold Completes Expenditure Commitment on the Key Property

March 25, 2015 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the ” Company”) reports that New Gold Inc. (NGD:TSX) (“New Gold”) has completed its committed expenditure of $1,500,000 on mineral exploration on the Key property in British Columbia. In December 2013, Troymet completed the sale of its 100% interest in the Key property to New Gold. As part of the transaction, New Gold committed to spend $1,500,000 on the Key property, with a minimum of $500,000 of expenditures on or before December 31, 2014 and the balance of $1,000,000 of expenditures on or before December 31, 2018.

Kieran Downes President and CEO of Troymet commented: “We view New Gold’s decision to accelerate the expenditure schedule such that the entire, committed $1.5 million was spent in 2014 as extremely positive for the Key property. New Gold activities included a discovery of high grade porphyry-style mineralization three kilometres south of its main Blackwater deposit and within 1 kilometre of the Key property.”

Troymet retains a 2% net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) on the Key property, of which half can be purchased by New Gold at any time for $2,000,000 cash, thereby reducing the NSR royalty to 1%.

The Key property adjoins the Blackwater gold-silver deposit which is currently in the permitting phase:
  • Proven and Probable mineral reserves: 8.17 million ounces gold & 60.8 million ounces silver*
  • Measured and Indicated mineral resources (exclusive of mineral reserves): 1.07 million ounces gold & 12.7 million ounces silver*
  • Inferred mineral resources: 0.29 million ounces gold & 1.5 million ounces silver*
