Troymet to Drill on Key Project

April 14, 2010 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the “Company”) is pleased to update plans for the Company’s 100% owned Key property, located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia. The 7,882-ha Key project is strategically located and the Company believes this greenfield area offers the potential for both precious metals and volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) discoveries.

The area surrounding the Key project has become a focus of precious metals exploration and claim staking (see Project Location Map). The Key property adjoins the claims (~1,820 ha) on the Blackwater project where Richfield Ventures Corp. has identified a bulk gold deposit (September 25, 2009 news release). Richfield states the mineralization has demonstrated continuity over hundreds of metres at potentially mineable grades (100-200 m thick covering 45 ha). Richfield plans a major drilling program in 2010 to define a NI 43-101 compliant resource (March 30, 2010 news release). Silver Quest Resources Ltd. controls the adjoining 3T’s project (~2,858 ha) and the Capoose project (~ 15,754 ha) located approximately 10 km to the northwest. Other companies with claims in the area include Gold Reach Resources Ltd. and Amarc Resources Ltd.

Troymet’s 2008 VTEM survey of the Key project clearly delineated fault systems which may be associated with gold-silver mineralization on the Blackwater property. The survey identified four priority targets for follow-up that are considered potential structurally-controlled sulphide-alteration zones. The survey also identified a number of intrusions which may have associated gold-silver mineralization. The Key project contains rocks of similar age and type to those hosting gold mineralization on the Blackwater property, and have never been explored for gold-silver mineralization. As well, the geological setting of the Key project has strong parallels to that of the gold- and silver-rich Eskay Creek deposit in northwestern British Columbia.

Troymet has completed its compilation and integration of historic technical data with the results of the VTEM survey. The Company plans a 2010 summer field program, including diamond drilling, to advance the project. The field program is scheduled to commence in late April-early May.

Tracy Hurley, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration and qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 is responsible for the technical information provided in this release.
