March 12, 2009 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or the
“Company”) is pleased to report on the results of a helicopter-borne
VTEM survey on the Company’s 100% owned Key property (7,882 ha) located
125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia. The survey was flown
over the central claims of the property by Geotech Ltd. in August 2008.
An interpretation of the results was subsequently undertaken by Balch
Exploration Consulting Inc. (BECI).
The exploration targets on the Key project are: (1) precious metals-rich
volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits, possibly preserved within a
graben structure; and (2) epithermal gold-silver deposits. The VTEM
survey identified four priority targets for follow up.
BECI identified four geophysical targets in the form of discrete higher
conductance electromagnetic (EM) anomalies for follow-up investigation.
Three of the anomalies are considered targets for VMS mineralization.
The fourth anomaly is selected as a lower priority target but chosen due
to its unusual EM behaviour.
Anomaly P1A is a near surface and perhaps exposed target with a strong
EM signature and interpreted to strike northerly for 600-800 metres.
It’s proximity to both major and subtle structural features place it as a
high priority target. Anomaly P1B is another high priority and
relatively shallow target with a strike length estimated at <200
metres. Anomaly P2 is considered a medium priority, discrete, shallow
target situated within an intrusive body. The shape of the EM anomaly
suggests a thick geometry or horizontal body with <200 metres strike
length. Anomaly P3 is another near surface target but considered lower
priority in that it does not exhibit similar characteristics to the
other selected targets. Its close proximity to a regional fault zone,
however, warrants a ground follow up.
The Key project lies within the Nechako Plateau, an area described by
the BC Geological Survey as under-explored and having the potential to
host various styles of mineral deposits based on favourable geology,
coeval intrusive activity and locally intensive extensional faulting
(BCGS Paper 1997-2). The property covers an area with anomalous lake
sediment geochemistry and locally anomalous
gold-lead-arsenic-silver-zinc in soils. The anomalous metal suite and
geological setting is characteristic of the gold- and silver-rich Eskay
Creek deposit in northwest British Columbia.
The Key property is contiguous with Silver Quest Resources’
Blackwater-Davidson project to the north and 3T’s project to the
southwest. At Blackwater-Davidson, disseminated gold-silver
mineralization and high-grade gold in shear-hosted veins is hosted in
Jurassic aged Hazelton Group rhyolites. The 3T’s is described as a
bonanza-style, epithermal gold-silver camp also hosted by Hazelton Group
rhyolites. Silver Quest’s Capoose silver-gold-lead-zinc deposit,
located 27 kilometres to the northwest, is associated with younger
Cretaceous-aged rhyolitic sills that have intruded the Hazelton rocks.
Current and historical resources are reported for the three properties.
Along the regional strike approximately 130 km to the northwest, Amarc
Resources Ltd. is actively exploring the Sitlika Copper-Zinc Belt for
copper-zinc rich VMS deposits.
The Company is very pleased with the positive results of the airborne
survey and a field program is under consideration for the 2009 field
season. This is a greenfield project with little history of exploration.
Given the location of the project and the newly identified VMS targets,
the Company is very optimistic for its discovery potential.
Troymet is a junior exploration company with precious and base metal
projects located in British Columbia and Manitoba, Canada. The Company
is actively seeking partners to advance its highly prospective
properties and continues to seek new projects with high-value and
large-tonnage potential to add to its portfolio.
