Raytec Provides Update on Seismic Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 23, 2009) - Raytec Metals Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RAY) is pleased to provide an update on its seismic program.

Raytec has concluded its 2-D seismic program on the Company's 100% owned Spar Property totaling 145,000 acres of contiguous ground within the extensive Middle Devonian Prairie Evaporite formation of south-central Saskatchewan. Raytec engaged the services of Kinetix Inc. to conduct the program in advance of proposed drilling.

Upon commencement, the program progressed with minimal delays during the early weeks of November 2008. Due to extreme weather conditions in December the crew was provided with an extended break. Data collection continued after the break and has now been completed. Processing of the data is now underway and results are currently being delivered for interpretation. Full interpretation and evaluation of the high resolution 2-D seismic profiling is scheduled for completion in May.
