November 3, 2011 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or
the “Company”) reports the Phase II soil sampling program on its 100%
owned (8,854 ha) Key project in British Columbia, has been successfully
completed. The Key property is strategically located between and
adjacent to New Gold Inc.’s Blackwater gold deposit and the 3Ts
gold-silver deposit of Silver Quest Resources Ltd. The Capoose silver
deposit (New Gold Inc.) is located approximately 12 km to the northwest.
New Gold acquired the Blackwater property through its purchase of
Richfield Ventures Corp. for $550 million (News Release of April 4,
2011). More recently, New Gold consolidated its position in the district
through its acquisition of Silver Quest’s 25% interest in part of the
Blackwater project as well as Silver Quest’s 100% interest in the
Capoose property for $132 million (News Release of October 17, 2011). As
part of its consolidation of interests New Gold also acquired Geo
Minerals Ltd.’s West Blackwater properties for $16 million (News Release
of October 17, 2011).
Troymet reports it has now completed soil sampling over the principal
target areas adjacent to the Blackwater property, along the principal
structures trending from the Key property onto the Blackwater property,
and along the east side of the Key property. The Phase II soil sampling
program completed and expanded the Phase I program. Phase II was
confined to the northeast parts of the property adjacent to the
Blackwater gold deposit.
“We are pleased the soil sampling program was completed in a timely
manner and ahead of schedule, and we look forward to an aggressive
drilling program in the New Year. Troymet is very encouraged by New
Gold’s consolidation of its interests in the district and has increased
confidence in the value of the Key property and its discovery
potential.” stated Kieran Downes, President and CEO.
The Company has moved sampling of the southwest corner of the Key
property to a Phase III program to be completed in 2012 as Troymet has
been advised the area will be logged in 2012. This will result in a more
comprehensive and cost effective exploration program. The Company had
planned to conduct soil sampling, in 2011, in this difficult to access
part of the property which is adjacent to the 3Ts gold-silver deposit.
Silver Quest has reported an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of
942,600 tonnes @ 4.89 g/t gold and 77 g/t silver for the 3Ts deposit
(Silver Quest Fact Sheet of August 31, 2011). As well, Silver Quest
completed 1,645 meter drill program (10 holes) on the 3Ts deposit in
2011 from which results are pending. Earlier, Silver Quest had reported
the discovery of at least four new quartz-carbonate veins in outcrop
(News Release of July 26, 2011).
As part of the Phase II program, access routes were identified to a
number of drill targets in the area of Tsacha Mt. which were
inaccessible during the winter 2011 drill program due to terrain and
weather. These, and newly identified targets, will be tested when
All soil samples have been submitted to ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. for
analysis. Results will be reported once received, interpreted and
Troymet is well financed and holds an exciting portfolio of precious metals and base metals exploration properties.
