Trueclaim Exploration Inc. Announces Commissioning of an Airborne Survey & Lease of High Tech Field Analytical Equipment

ST. THOMAS, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) - Trueclaim Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TRM) (the "Company") an explorer and developer of precious metals, is pleased to provide the following update in its evaluation of the Scadding Gold Mine and surrounding area property.

1) Airborne Survey - The Company has engaged the services of Terraquest Ltd, ( of Markham, Ontario, specialists in High Resolution Airborne Geophysical Surveys, to carry out an airborne survey of landholdings held by Trueclaim and others. The survey represents a total area of 24,000 Ha (59,305 acres or 240 square kilometers) in Scadding, Davis, Maclennan and Street Townships located approximately 50 km northwest of Sudbury. This survey is part of the Company's exploration program that was financed late last year. The low level fixed wing survey will consist of a gradient and total field magnetic survey, a radiometric scintillometer survey, a triaxial VLF survey and colour digital photography of the area. The results of this data will assist in the interpretation of the underlying geology of varying magnetic susceptibility and varying concentrations of Uranium, Thorium and Potassium. The location of fault structures as well as the identification of near surface conductors can also be achieved with this survey. This information will be valuable as Trueclaim focuses on its upcoming geologic mapping program to evaluate existing mineralized zones and delineate potential additional mineralized areas. The survey is scheduled to begin in mid-April pending weather conditions.

2) XRF Detection Equipment - In early April the Company entered into a lease agreement to acquire the use of a hand held X-ray Fluorescent unit (XRF) to assist in the onsite evaluation of alteration and mineralization for the upcoming field season. The unit acquired is the InnovX Systems Inc. ( "Delta Premium" model that was introduced during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada convention held in March, 2010. The device is one of the most cutting-edge non-vacuum handheld XRF units on the market, featuring a rhodium X-ray tube and wide area silicon drift detector. The unit comes with a Bluetooth communication package that includes a Trimble Yuma ruggedized computer tablet running the Windows 7 operating system with built-in GPS and ioGas software. This setup will offer enhanced in-field detection capabilities, and allow for the creation of multi-element colour coded geochemical real-time in-field maps. The equipment will initially be operated by the company's senior project geologist and qualified person, Bob Komarechka, a Level 2 certified XRF operator as registered with Natural Resources Canada. Training of other company personnel will follow on arrival of the instrument anticipated within the next month.

These steps represent ongoing additions to Trueclaim's overall effort to properly identify potential mineralized zones on its Scadding and area holdings. As previously announced the Company's Phase I drill and exploration program completed in February, 2010 provided encouraging results in terms of gold mineralization and strong justification for proceeding with the Phase II program in 2010.

We seek Safe Harbour.
