New Discovery by Typhoon at More Than 450 Meters of the Fayolle Deposit

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. ("Typhoon")(TSX VENTURE:TOO) announces a third series of results of 19 drill holes completed during winter 2008 on the Fayolle property owned 100% by Typhoon.. The new results relate to the FA-08-08, 09 and 10 holes.

The FA-08-09 drill holes has intersected a new gold zone of 1,45 g/t Au over 6,0 meters, 450 meters (1,480 feet) east of the Fayolle deposit. This new gold mineralization was investigated following the compilation of the GOCAD data surveys realized by the firm during the fall 2007 and winter 2008 campaign. A litho-geochemical anomaly for the drill holes most east of the Fayolle deposit combined with a geophysical anomaly detected by the aerial survey has motivated the firm to investigate this area. The gold mineralization is linked to a komatiite host intensely altered with brown spar, albite and fuschite to a large felsic intrusion of intermediate composition. It is noteworthy that the alterations and the intrusion show strong similarities with those observed on the Fayolle main deposit.

The other two drill holes were completed in the west and central west area of the property to purposefully further investigate west of the lateral extensions as well as the vertical depth of the mineralized zones of the Fayolle showing. The best intervals for the FA-08-08 and FA-08-10 holes are:
