Troymet Reports Significant Skarn Zone Prospecting Results

October 20, 2014 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the “Company”) reports the results of a reconnaissance prospecting program conducted on the southern extension of the Skarn zone, on the Company’s 100% owned Golden Eagle project in northern British Columbia. Prospecting has identified elevated to anomalous gold, silver, arsenic, bismuth, copper, mercury, antimony and tellurium values within an area of approximately 1,300 m x 900 m along the Paddy Fault system (map links provided below). The fault system, which controls the Skarn zone mineralization, is a major structural feature up to 500 m wide that has been traced for over 17 km.

The highest gold, bismuth and tellurium values are located in the head waters of creeks with anomalous gold-in-silts that drain eastwards. Elevated to anomalous silver, antimony and mercury values are also present. The geology comprises felsic intrusive (Cretaceous?) and Upper Triassic (Stuhini Group) mafic to intermediate volcanics. Mineralized samples exhibit bleaching, actinolite alteration, sulphidation, quartz and ankerite veining similar to the Skarn zone.

Copper, mercury (and silver) values are elevated to anomalous along the ridge that tracks the Paddy Fault south of the Skarn zone. Mineralized samples comprise quartz veins, quartz-ankerite veins, quartz-carbonate alteration, bleaching, actinolite alteration and sulphidization. The Paddy Fault marks the contact between mafic-intermediate-felsic volcanics (Stuhini Group) and sediments (Boundary Range Metamorphics).

Copper, arsenic, and mercury values are elevated to anomalous to the west, along with bismuth, antimony, silver and gold. Mineralized samples comprise quartz veins, quartz-ankerite veins, quart-carbonate alteration, bleaching and sulphidization.

Historic drilling in 1990 and 1997 was limited to an area 265 m long and intersections ranged from 2.12 g/t Au over 9.9 m to 7.64 g/t Au over 3.5m (further details are provided in a technical report available here. Only visually obvious mineralization was assayed and no drill core exists today from this drilling. In 2011, Troymet drilled one hole (N11-06) to test the northern limit of the area of historic drilling. The hole collared in mineralization and intersected 36.45 m grading 1.27 g/t gold (mineralization open; see cross-section link below). The upper portion of the gold intersection is also anomalous in silver, grading 4.05 g/t silver over 15.45 m. This intersection demonstrated the potential for high-grade, sub-cropping, bulk tonnage gold mineralization that was not recognized in the past.

The current prospecting results confirm the Skarn zone mineralization extends a significant distance to the south towards the Catfish zone, where gold-silver bearing veins occur in the head waters of creeks carrying anomalous gold-in-silt values. The Catfish zone is ~2.5 km south of the Skarn zone. This is a highly prospective area with a high discovery potential.
