Raytec Increases Ownership in Sulphur Solutions

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2009) - Raytec Metals Corp. (the "Company "or "Raytec") (TSX VENTURE:RAY) announces that it has increased its stake to 20% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares in Sulphur Solutions Inc. ("SSI"), a privately held company based in Calgary, Alberta. The original agreement with SSI provided Raytec with a right of first refusal to participate in future SSI financings. Raytec has been encouraged by SSI's recent progress towards production and has elected to exercise its right by making an additional investment of $740,000.

SSI, a fertilizer company developing state-of-the-art patented technology for the production of micronized sulphur fertilizer, has moved closer to production by signing a Letter of Intent with a mid-stream gas producer which operates a permitted site that includes an accessible sulphur supply. When completed this agreement will allow SSI to take advantage of existing permits for sulphur storage and handling, as well as reduced operating costs associated with transportation to off-site processing facilities. SSI management has also identified prospective customers (domestic and international) and is presently in the process of negotiating off-take agreements for SSI's anticipated sulphur fertilizer production.
