November 6, 2009 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV:TYE) (“Troymet” or
the “Company”) is pleased to update progress on its McClarty Lake
project, located near Snow Lake, Manitoba. The project is located
approximately 45 km south of the HudBay Minerals’ Chisel Lake and Lalor
Lake VMS deposits. The McClarty Lake property comprises three claims
owned 100% by Troymet and two claims owned 60% by Troymet and 40% by
Hudson Bay Exploration and Development (HudBay) (“option claims”).
Troymet identified a gold-rich volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) system,
the Discovery zone, on the option claims in 2007, and HudBay is
currently earning an additional 20% interest in those claims from
Troymet. The Company anticipates that HudBay will conduct a 2010 winter
diamond drilling program on the Discovery zone.
On its 100% owned properties, Troymet plans a 2010 winter drill program
(~1500 metres) to evaluate the Mac EM conductor, which is on-trend with
the Discovery zone VMS mineralization (see Mac EM target here
). The Mac conductor was
identified by a 2008 VTEM helicopter-borne survey which offers deeper
penetration compared with traditional airborne EM survey systems. The
Mac conductor, as with the Discovery zone, may not have been detected by
earlier surveys because it lies at a greater depth. There is no record
of prior drilling in this area. The undrilled Mac conductor is a high
priority target with the potential to host significant VMS
In addition to the Mac conductor, the 2008 VTEM survey identified two EM
conductors at the Discovery zone, one of which remains untested. This
is a priority target. The presence and location of these conductors
underscores the potential for additional significant VMS discoveries
both in and between the Mac target and the Discovery zone. The better
intersections in the Discovery zone (News Release April 9, 2008) are:
- 43.05 m @ 0.38 g/t Au; 6.53 g/t Ag; 0.31% Cu & 1.47% Zn incl. 15.3 m of 3.46% Zn
- 47.06 m @ 1.23 g/t Au; 5.13 g/t Ag, 0.35% Cu & 0.94% Zn incl. 9.18 m of 0.94 % Cu & 2.93 m of 5.44% Zn
sulphide mineralization and associated alteration system at the
Discovery zone is very similar to that associated with the Chisel Lake
and Lalor VMS deposits.
Troymet’s 100% owned claims are strategically placed and the Company is
very optimistic regarding the potential for additional significant VMS
discoveries in this area. The Discovery zone is a greenfield discovery
which was not detected or recognized by many airborne EM surveys.
Troymet believes that the Mac conductor, which is on-trend with the
Discovery zone, offers the potential for immediate and significant new
discoveries on 100% owned Troymet ground.
