Hudson Bay to Earn Back Interest in Troymet's McClarty Lake VMS Project

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) (the "Company") is pleased to report that under the terms of an Option Agreement with Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Limited (HBED), Troymet has completed its earn-in for a 60% working interest in two claims totalling 252 hectares, which are part of the McClarty Lake project located near Snow Lake, Manitoba. Troymet also owns a 100% interest in three other contiguous claims, which are also part of the McClarty Lake project.

Under the terms of the Option Agreement, HBED retained the right to earn back a twenty (20%) percent undivided interest in the two claims from Troymet by spending $750,000 on exploration over the next three years.

Troymet is pleased to report that it has received formal notification from HBED that it has elected to earn back a 20% interest in the two claims. Following exploration expenditures of $750,000 by HBED, the two claims will be held in a joint venture between HBED (60%) and Troymet (40%).

HBED's decision to earn back in to the property lends strong support to management's belief that McClarty Lake is a property of substantial merit with excellent potential to host a precious metal rich VMS deposit(s). The sulphide mineralization and associated alteration system at McClarty Lake is very similar to that associated with the Chisel Lake and the newly discovered Lalor Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits of the Snow Lake area.
