Troymet Updates Key Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2010) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") is pleased to update the status of its Key project in British Columbia. Troymet holds a 100% interest in the 7,882-hectare Key property located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia. The Key project is prospective for epithermal gold-silver deposits as well as volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits.

The property, which straddles an apparent graben developed in a volcano-sedimentary sequence, covers an area with anomalous lake sediment geochemistry and locally anomalous gold-lead-arsenic-silver-zinc in soils. Major north-trending faults cut the property and these may be related to the gold and silver mineralization currently being explored by Richfield Ventures Corp. on its Blackwater property, some 2.5 km to the north (see Richfield website). The 3T's project (Silver Quest Resources) to the southwest is described as a bonanza-style, epithermal gold-silver camp.

Richfield, in its September 25, 2009 news release, describes the mineralization on the Blackwater property as a bulk gold deposit with demonstrated continuity over hundreds of metres at potentially mineable grades. The gold mineralization is hosted in highly siliceous and argillically altered breccia and microbreccia derived from felsic volcanic or subvolcanic rocks. Richfield estimates the brecciated rocks which host the gold mineralization may cover an area of up to 45 hectares and are generally between 100 to 200 metres thick.

A 2008 VTEM survey of the Key project clearly delineated the fault systems which may be associated with gold-silver mineralization on the Blackwater property. The survey also identified four priority targets for follow-up that are considered potential structurally-controlled sulphide-alteration zones.

The Key project is strategically located and the Company believes this geenfield area offers the potential for both precious metals and VMS discoveries. The Company plans a 2010 summer field program to advance the project.
