Troymet Commences Winter Program at McClarty Lake

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2010) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of its winter program on the McClarty Lake project located near Snow Lake, Manitoba. The property lies approximately 45 km south of HudBay Minerals' Chisel Lake and Lalor Lake volcanic massive sulphide (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"). HudBay is currently earning an additional 20% interest in the option claims where Troymet identified a gold-bearing VMS system, the Discovery zone, in 2007. The Company anticipates that HudBay will conduct a 2010 winter diamond drilling program on the Discovery zone.

The establishment of a 10.6 km grid on Troymet's 100% owned MAC 3 claim is expected to be completed this week, followed by a fixed large loop surface pulse electromagnetic (PEM) survey under contract to Crone Geophysics of Mississauga, Ontario. The grid is centred over the Mac EM conductor that was identified by the Company's 2008 deep penetrating VTEM helicopter-borne survey and is on trend with the Discovery zone.

The Mac conductor is a high priority target that offers the potential for immediate and significant new VMS discoveries on 100% owned Troymet ground. A 2010 winter diamond drilling program (approximately 1,500 metres) is planned to follow up on results of the PEM survey.
