June 20, 2016 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV: TYE) (“Troymet” or the Company”) is pleased to report that it has received the final results from a Voltera-3DIP survey over the Alpha zone, Redhill project. While final modelling and interpretation of the data is underway, preliminary results show a domain of high chargeability and resistivity along the west side of the grid at a depth of ~200 metres (Section 1600N, Chargeability & Resistivity). This domain is flanked to the east by a domain of low chargeability. While the geology and structures of the different domains remain to be confirmed, it is clear the 3DIP data is mapping previously unrecognized and fundamental geological patterns in the Alpha zone which will guide exploration.
The Redhill volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) prospect occurs in a prospective volcanic sequence that tracks the contact of the high/low chargeability domains. This contact will be a focus of future exploration. The VMS prospect is associated with a 200 metre long Fixed Loop Transient EM conductor as well as Borehole Transient EM conductors. Hole RH06-25, re-logged, quartered and re-assayed by Troymet, returned: 8.75% copper, 4.75% zinc, 1.22 g/t gold & 61.19 g/t silver over 2.04 metres. The mineralization is open along strike and to depth.
The survey also identified a large chargeability anomaly (> 20 milliseconds), over an area of ~280 X 260 metres, just west of the VMS prospect, and another (16-18 milliseconds), over an area ~ 210 X 100 metres, in the southeast part of the grid. There is no record of drilling or other exploration on either of these targets.
The gold-in-soil anomaly (200 metre line spacing with 50 metre stations) is aligned along the northeast edge of a resistivity high.Geologically, the resistivity feature appears to comprise diorite-granodiorite intrusive into interlayered rhyolitic and andesitic volcanics with EM conductors. Troymet plans further exploration of the gold anomaly prior to drilling.
The Volterra-3DIP survey was conducted by SJ Geophysics Ltd. of Vancouver. Nine lines (10.8 km) at a spacing of 150 metres were surveyed.

and initial understanding and analysis of the Redhill Project; the
ability of Troymet to discover viable exploration targets and the
results of exploration on the Redhill Project; the cost of exploration,
including sampling and drilling, on the Redhill Project; Troymet’s
general and administrative costs remaining constant; and the market
acceptance of Troymet’s business strategy. Forward-looking information
