PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - July 30, 2009) - Troy Resources NL (TSX:TRY)(ASX:TRY) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

HIGHLIGHTS

OVERVIEW

- Completed the acquisition of the Casposo gold silver deposit in San Juan Province, Argentina.

- Announced a 32% increase in the Indicated Mineral Resource for the Casposo Project in Argentina.

- High grade gold intercepts in the Banded Iron Formation (BIF) associated with the Two Mile Hill exploration target at Sandstone WA.

- Quarterly gold production of 14,800 ounces at an average cash cost of A$614/oz (US$472/oz).

- Total production for the 2009 Financial Year of 61,786 ounces, an increase of over 50% on the previous financial year, at an average cash cost of A$672/oz (US$496/oz).

- Commenced processing ore from the new cut back of the Lord Nelson pit extending the Sandstone mine life by at least 12 months.

- Commenced processing higher grade Mamao underground ore at Andorinhas in Brazil.

- Cash, bank deposits and bullion of over A$35 million.

OPERATIONS

Sandstone

- The Sandstone operation continued to process low grade stockpiles for the majority of the quarter. Higher grade material from the new cut back in the Lord Nelson pit entered the mill feed midway through June.

- Mill throughput of 118,891 tonnes was slightly below budget due to heavy rains which reduced the productivity of the crushing unit. Lower grades and throughput saw gold production of 6,157 ounces compared to 8,074 ounces in the previous quarter.

- Despite treating lower grades, Sandstone cash costs at A$543/oz were similar to the previous quarter. Cash costs are forecast to rise in coming quarters as the costs of overburden removal associated with the new Lord Nelson cut back are included.

Andorinhas

- The plant treated open cut stockpile ore for two months and higher grade underground ore for one month. The easier milling underground ore allowed throughput to increase 11% over the previous quarter to 58,416t.

- With grade 18% higher at 5.12g/t gold and metallurgical recovery up 3% higher at 90.3%, total gold production at 8,643 ounces was 34% higher than the previous quarter.

- Cash costs of A$665/oz (US$506/oz) were in line with the previous quarter in local currency terms.

- At the end of June Andorinhas had 215,382 tonnes of open pit ore stockpiles at a grade of 2.21g/t gold.

- Underground development is now progressing ahead of schedule. As the ore bodies tend to become wider and have higher grades with depth, the budget assumes increasing gold production in the coming quarters.

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

Casposo

- Troy completed the acquisition of the Casposo gold silver deposit on May 6 with the payment of US$20m from cash reserves. An additional US$2m is due on the sixth month anniversary of first production.

Troy commenced a review to consider utilizing the gold processing plant it holds in storage for the development of the Casposo orebody. We expect to update the market on the project capital in early August.

An updated Casposo Resource Estimate using drill results from Intrepid Mines Limited's 2008 diamond drilling program that were not included in the 2008 AMEC Consulting NI-43101 Technical report of July 2008 was completed. The new Indicated Mineral Resource is 2,369,000t grading 5.4g/t gold and 201.7g/t silver for 602,500 (Gold-equivalent Au_eq) contained ounces

Sandstone

- We are currently reviewing the potential to mine a number of small low grade surface deposits which have the potential to add approximately 3 months to the Sandstone mine life taking production through to the 1st quarter of FY2011. A decision to proceed with these pits will be made in the December quarter.

- With the drilling of two high grade intercepts within the BIF associated with the Two Mile Hill Prospect, a follow up program is being planned with the aim to prove up sufficient high grade ore to justify its exploitation.

EXPLORATION

Argentina - Casposo

- Field work has commenced with geological mapping and channel sampling underway at the Cerro Norte Target.

Australia - Sandstone

- An 8 hole (2940m) follow-up drill program during May and June at Two Mile Hill delineated intrusive hosted disseminated and sheeted quartz vein style gold mineralisation and identified a second higher grade style of gold mineralisation hosted within a Banded Iron Formation (BIF).

- The BIF hosted high grade gold mineralisation was intersected on both the eastern and western margins of the Two Mile Hill tonalite with gold intersections as follows: 6.8m at 15.73g/t gold from 215.0m and 25.9m at 16.56g/t gold from 240.1m. Follow-up drilling to delineate the BIF hosted high grade mineralisation is planned.

- Tonalite hosted gold intercepts (calculated without using a cutoff or applying a top cut) include; 96.6m at 1.66g/t gold from 306.0m downhole; 205.5m at 1.14g/t gold from 94.0m downhole; 156.3m at 1.14g/t gold from 216.5m downhole; 353.3m grading 1.04g/t gold from 125.7m downhole; 230.4m grading 1.62g/t gold from 243.1m downhole. A Resource estimate is currently being completed.

Brazil - Andorinhas

- RAB drilling of gold-in-soil anomalies at the Maria Bonita Prospect located 200m south of the Mamao Mill produced an encouraging result of 12m grading 7.50g/t gold from 7m downhole including 5m at 15.86g/t gold from 9m and 2m grading 32.64g/t gold from 9m.

- The underground Diamond Core drilling at Mamao targeted at confirming internal grade and width continuity below the existing workings within the Reserve produced encouraging gold intercepts of; 1.0m at 38.01g/t gold, 2.7m at 15.61g/t gold, 1.1m at 67.32g/t gold, 1.1m at 66.0g/t gold, 2.8m at 18.20g/t gold, 2.1m at 12.75g/t gold and 1.0m at 22.27g/t gold.

COMMENTARY

Commenting on the quarter Troy CEO Paul Benson said, "This has been a an excellent quarter on a number of fronts. Solid performance at both sites has seen financial year production increase more than 50% above the previous year.

Even more pleasing has been the progress in securing Troy's future growth. We have nearly completed the review of the Casposo capital cost and expect to release it in early August.

We have also published an updated Mineral Resource which incorporates the last drilling campaign undertaken by Intrepid and revised price assumptions which saw Mineral Resources increase by 32%. We are confident that the larger resource will ultimately support an increase in the Mining Reserve. We are looking to further increase the gold inventory at Casposo as we start our brownfields' exploration program aimed at testing 3 drill ready targets.

At Sandstone the high grade drill intercepts are very exciting and we are looking forward to completing a follow up drill campaign. Obviously with an existing operation, the tonnage required to justify development would be significantly less than if this was a greenfields discovery".

Health, Safety & Environment

There was one lost time injury recorded during the quarter. A mill operator sustained injuries to both legs while replacing a carbon screen in an absorption tank. A draft mine closure plan was completed and will be presented to the DMP for review.

Mining

Once the mining and waste dump areas were cleared and top soil removed and stored, mining commenced on the Lord Nelson cutback. 704,182 bcms of material was mined during the quarter including 37,761 tonnes of ore at a grade of 1.66g/t gold.

Pit dewatering commenced in May 2008.

Relocation of the North West portion of the Lord Nelson waste dump was completed with 44,000 bcm of waste being shifted due to geotechnical design parameters. The waste dump is being progressively rehabilitated as mining progresses.

Investigation, design and planning have commenced on several small deposits in the Sandstone region and feasibility studies are currently being conducted.

Processing

118,891 tonnes of ore at a grade of 1.74g/t gold was milled during the quarter yielding 6,156 ounces of fine gold.

Mill throughput decreased during the quarter because of the high moisture content of the ore, causing blockages to the jaw crusher and loss of ore tonnes due the water absorbed by the clays in the ore.

Mill recovery improved to over 92%.

General

Wet weather, especially in June, affected both mine and mill production. Site morale remains high and there was a smooth transition with the recommencement of mining and the tripling of the workforce.

The increased exploration and mining activities generated by Troy in Sandstone has been most welcomed by the community and businesses in the town.

Occupation, Health & Safety

A total of 190,151 man hrs were worked during the quarter with a total of 5 lost time injuries recorded with a total of 25 man days lost. The lost time injuries were unrelated in that they occurred across the operation with no common factors. Safety training is an every day activity so it was disappointing to record this number of accidents.

Environment

There were no environmental problems, accidents or incidents during the Quarter.

Mine development and production, Mamao underground mine

Jumbo development: A total of 598 m were excavated.

Ore produced for the Quarter was 15,900 t @ 8.98g/t gold.

Permitting

The permanent mining license for the Andorinhas gold operation was approved by COEMA, the regulatory body. This approval now paves the way for the issue of the required licenses, a procedure which normally may take 3-4 months. In the meantime the Company continues to operate under the temporary permitting system.

General Comments

Processing

The processing plant is performing well. Although the number of power interruptions has decreased this still is an area of concern and focus. The Company has purchased and is waiting for the installation of a system to stabilize the high voltage supply. Delivery time for this system has proved to be extraordinarily challenging but we believe it will be available in August.

An Acacia intensive leach system has been purchased for the plant to assist with recovery of very fine gold and improve the security aspects of production. The installation when completed should help increase recoveries. The hired power back up system was replaced with our own and a backup power supply for underground was also installed. Ore treated for the quarter was below budget expected in terms of grade due to problems with underground production but tonnes treated were above budget and the mill availability at a high level and mainly affected by the power issue.

Underground Mining Operation

During the Quarter jumbo development exceeded budget and caught up most of the lost ground for the year. Development of the 2 declines is progressing very well and opening up new stoping areas both in the Melechete and M2 Lode system.

During the quarter a raise bored shaft was excavated to serve as a ventilation shaft and second means of egress for the M2 Lode ore system. The 1140m Level "room and pillar" stoping block was set up and access connected to the ventilation shaft allowing for a ramp up of production, with resulting higher extraction rates expected from July onwards. At the end of the quarter a total of 2 mechanized stoping blocks in the Melechete Lode plus sill driving using the production jumbo was in action.

The M2 Lode sill development continues past the interpreted limit of the mineralization with continuing good grades and the access raises for the Stoping sequence are being developed as the need arises for more working areas.

The underground operation suffered two major setbacks during the quarter. The unseasonal wet period caused widespread flooding with the mine pumps unable to provide for the additional heavy rains. The problem manifested itself in that the water level in the adjacent old mine rose and break through at the lower level in the new mine flooding one stoping block which caused a shortfall in stoping areas and hence a lower than budgeted ore production. The pump facilities have since been upgraded to cover similar events. The rain fall recorded over a 1 week period was over 600mm. The other main problem during the quarter was the unavailability of the small production Jumbo for 2.5 weeks. A second secondhand single boom jumbo has since been acquired providing better backup for mechanical downtime.

In general the underground mine is now functioning well.

Community

The Company completed the construction of the Floresta Women's Group's facility for community activities and to provide a locale for production of clothes. The Company also continues to work on the sport facility and will complete the soccer ground by the end of the year. This is a long term project to provide a cultural and sporting environment for the Community. Reinarda also continued the program to upgrade the dirt road linking the mine with the main bitumen road. The road sees very heavy traffic from an Iron ore Company as well as the general public. It is worth noting the despite the heavy rains this year we did not lose any time because of the road condition which was a major problem in 2008.

CASPOSO PROJECT - ARGENTINA (Troy 100%)

Following the acquisition of the project meetings were held with State and Federal Government as well as community leaders and local authorities to introduce Troy to key stakeholders.

An agreement was reached with EPRE, the power authority, to alter the payment schedule for the agreed contribution for construction of the new proposed power line.

An Archeological survey was conducted along the proposed bore field supply line route.

During the quarter the Casposo Project was studied in detail and metallurgical test work was concluded to confirm the viability of altering the originally proposed designs to accommodate the use of the Company's fully owned plant stored in Australia as part of the overall processing facility. Re-engineering of some of the concepts including the use of alternative equipment is now nearing completion and all major items have been sourced.

Troy's Australian plant currently stored in Cobar, New South Wales has been made ready for shipping subject only to some remedial work plus the final purchase of some ancillary equipment from other parts of the world.

Contracts have been signed for completion of some design work required for waste and tailings storage with a number of smaller contracts for other parts of plant design with local engineering companies in the process of being finalised.

Quotes have been received for all major construction activities including tank construction, concrete works, all major buildings and electrical installations.

Permits for earth works have been received and the mill and crusher area leveling and compaction is underway to allow the concrete works to start with the first permit expected by the end of July.

Bore field design is being finalized and the final bore is just completed and we would expect a speedy approval once we have submitted the design.

An area for the temporary construction camp has been prepared and quotes received for construction of a hire facility.

Office, cafeteria, laboratory, refinery and first aid buildings have been designed and quotes received and only awaiting approval from the Company to start construction.

On the personnel side, use is being made of existing staff with some additional people being seconded from within the Company as well as utilising the Company's main engineering consultants in Perth.

EXPLORATION REPORT

EXPLORATION - ARGENTINA

Casposo Project (Troy 100%)

The 2009-2010 exploration program plan was finalized and this will include shallow RC and Diamond Core drilling of the Julieta, Inca Vein Southeast Extension, Kamila - Mercado Gap, Cerro Norte, Mercado Northwest, Panzon Targets. Detailed mapping and sampling focused on identifying additional drill targets is scheduled for a number of targets including Mercado Northwest, Maya, Panzon, Julieta and Cerro Norte Prospects (see Figure #1).

To view Figure #1: 2009 - 2010 Exploration Targets - Casposo Project, please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/try730f1.pdf.

The updated Indicated Mineral Resource for the Casposo Project is 2,369,000t grading 5.4g/t gold and 201.7g/t silver for 602,500 (Gold-equivalent Au_eq) contained ounces (See Table #1).

This Indicated Resource update is an increase of 147,600oz Au_eq in the Casposo Project Indicated Mineral Resources comprising of 76,400oz gold and 6.3Moz silver. Indicated Resources for the project are now 414,600oz gold and 15.3Moz silver at an average grade of 7.9g/t Au_eq.

In June, work commenced on the updating the Casposo Resource Estimate using drill results from Intrepid Mines Limited 2008 diamond drilling program that were not included in the 2008 AMEC International (Chile) S. A Consulting NI-43101 Technical report of July 2008 prepared on behalf of Intrepid Mines Limited. Drilling during 2008 totaled 13,062m in 61 diamond drill holes. None of this drilling has been included in earlier Mineral Resource Estimates.

Mineral Resources attributed to an open pit were constrained within a Whittle pit optimisation using a gold price of US$1,000/oz and a silver price of US$15/oz. Open pit operating costs of US$31.56/t and mill recovery of 93.7% were used and includes all royalties. These Mineral Resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.8g/t Au_eq. The Indicated Mineral Resources attributed to an open pit comprising the Aztec Vein, Inca Vein, B Vein and Mercado Vein resulted in 1,918,000t grading 6.1g/t gold and 187.1g/t silver (8.4g/t Au_eq).

Mineral Resources attributed to an underground were those Mineral Resources that are not contained within the Whittle pit optimisation. These Mineral Resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 2.0g/t Au_eq. The Indicated Mineral Resources attributed to an underground comprising the Aztec Vein, Inca Vein, B Vein and Mercado Vein resulted in 451,000t grading 2.5g/t gold and 264.0g/t silver (5.7g/t Au_eq).

Cut-off grades reflect the marginal cost of ore production from open pit and underground mining scenarios.

Gold equivalence is calculated by the formula:

Au_eq g/t equals Au g/t + (Ag g/t divided by 81.82)

The gold : silver ratio of 1:81.82 is calculated using metal prices of US$915/oz and US$13/oz for gold and silver respectively. These prices are the average London PM fix for the six months to June 30th 2009. Processing recoveries of 93.7% for gold and 80.6% for silver are also used. The formula for calculating the gold : silver ratio is:

(915 divided by 13) x (0.937 divided by 0.806) equals 81.82

Grade was estimated into the model by ID2 interpolation. Search distances were determined from variography and high grade outliers were cut where appropriate.
Only diamond drilling was used in the grade estimation.

Field work has commenced with geological mapping and channel sampling underway at the Cerro Norte Target.

EXPLORATION - AUSTRALIA

WA - Sandstone Project (Troy 100%)

An 8 hole (2940m) follow-up drill program at Two Mile Hill has better delineated the intrusive hosted disseminated and sheeted vein style gold mineralisation associated with the Two Mile Hill tonalite first identified by drilling in April - June 2008 (TDD034; 387.0m grading 1.57g/t gold and TRCD727; 96.6m at 1.66g/t gold from 306.0m downhole) and has identified a second higher grade style of gold mineralisation hosted within a Banded Iron Formation (BIF). The Two Mile Hill Prospect is located 2.7km northeast of the Sandstone Mill (see attached Figure #2, Figure #3 & Figure #4).

All assays have now been received for the 8 hole drill program consisting of Reverse Circulation (RC) precollars and Diamond Core (DC) extensions totaling 2940m (780m in RC precollars; 2160m in DC extensions).

Holes were drilled on 40m sections over a 240m strike of the Two Mile Hill tonalite stock. All holes were orientated at an azimuth of 270 degrees (MGA) and drilled at dip angles ranging from -55 degrees to -67 degrees. The maximum hole depth was 504m.

The drilling program targeted the north-south elongated gold bearing tonalite stock and contained gold bearing quartz veins and a banded iron formation BIF unit cut by the intrusive tonalite stock. The BIF unit cut by the stock dips to the northeast at about -30 degrees and varies in thickness from 25m to 50m.

The Two Mile Hill tonalite is a near vertical, late phase intrusive in the evolution of the Sandstone Greenstone Belt and cuts the local volcanic stratigraphy principally comprising basalt and BIF. The tonalite is pervasively altered with sericite and silica and contains variable amounts of disseminated pyrite. Gold occurs within the tonalite associated with pyrite and sheeted sets of quartz veins dipping at -15 degrees to the southeast. Individually the quartz veins vary from 1mm to 100mm thick with a few exceptions up to 700mm thick. Visible gold, often associated with galena, molybdenite, chalcopyrite and other sulphides, is common in the quartz veins.

The tonalite was intersected over a strike length of 240m however intersections of tonalite at both the southern and northern ends of the intrusive were restricted to small apophyses, giving the bulk of the tonalite a strike length of about 220m and an average width of 70m. Maximum vertical extent of the tonalite below surface intersected to date was 425m.

Gold assays for the whole tonalite, from 6 holes in the recent drilling program and 2 holes drilled last year, average about 1.2g/t gold without applying a cutoff and not allowing for any top cut to the numerous narrow high grade intersections of gold bearing quartz veins.

BIF was intersected on both sides of the tonalite in close proximity to the tonalite in several holes. The two intersections in separate drill holes occur on the east side and on the west side of the tonalite. The BIF is highly quartz veined and extensively replaced by pyrite. These intersections contained high grade gold values as follows:

TRCD735: 6.8m at 15.73g/t gold from 215.0m

Including 3.4m at 30.36g/t gold from 216.4m

TRCD733: 25.9m at 16.56g/t gold from 240.1m

Including 3.5m at 20.24g/t gold from 243.0m

and 13.7m at 25.98g/t gold from 251.0m

A preliminary Resource estimate is underway for the tonalite hosted gold mineralisation and detailed structural and petrographic work has commenced to better understand the nature and controls related to the BIF hosted gold mineralisation.

Complete results for the tonalite and the BIF are compiled in Table #2.

Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling targeted the oxide resource potential at MacIntyre, First Try and Musketeer South Prospects failed to identify any significant mineralisation and no further work is recommended.

At the MacIntyre Prospect (12 holes; 858m) the best assay result from 17m at 2.24g/t gold intersected from surface in TRC554. Although wide zones of low grade gold mineralisation were encountered in the central traverse, the lateral extent appears to be limited;

Similar to MacIntyre, the recent RC drilling at Musketeer South (20 holes; 1,478m) produced a best assay of 5m at 7.29g/t gold from 35m in TRC650. Unfortunately there is a lack of continuity of the mineralisation to adjacent holes. Gold mineralisation is found along a 150m strike length within the gently folded and quartz veined jasperlitic BIF which dips -40 degrees to the northwest. On most sections the deepest, RC results indicate this zone does not continue at depth.

At First Try (6 holes; 477m) assays from the north dipping BIF confirmed the tabular natures of the mineralised zone were disappointing with gold grades generally lower than the historical drill intercepts. The mineralisation does not continue to the east or at depth. Best assay results include; TRC708: 2m at 3.94g/t gold from 48m downhole and TRC709: 4m grading 1.50g/t gold from 30m downhole.

Drilling at the Bulloak Pit consisted of a 299.8m deep diamond drill hole with a 112m deep RC pre-collar. The hole tested the depth extent of gold mineralisation associated with shallow northeast dipping quartz veins within a northeast-southwest elongated granodiorite intrusive. Drill hole geology consisted of granodiorite cut by five andesite dykes, ranging from1m - 9m in width, intersected between 208m and 253m downhole (see Figure #5 and Table #3). The Bulloak quartz veining is generally narrower and less abundant, whilst sericite and pyrite alteration is less pervasive throughout the host rock. Anomalous intersections were found to be generally narrow and of moderate grade with the widest intersection of 4.0m at 5.49g/t gold from 294m downhole.

Program of Work applications for RC drilling at the Piper and Havilah Prospects have been approved and site preparation is underway. The Havilah RC drill program will consist of 19 shallow holes (860m) that will be drilled in July to test the extent of the Stockwork vein hosted gold mineralisation. Shallow RC holes are planned to confirm the extent and grade of laterite gold mineralisation in historical Aircore drilling at the Piper Prospect. The program will consist of 62 vertical holes for a total of 1,110m.

EXPLORATION - BRAZIL

Andorinhas Project (Troy 100% through Reinarda Mineracao Ltda)

Gold Exploration

The extended tropical rainy season hampered access to drill sites and delayed the drilling program for much of the first half of this reporting period.

At the Maria Bonita Prospect situated about 200m south of Mamao Mill, a RAB drill program tested gold-in-soil anomalies and produced an encouraging result of 12m grading 7.50g/t gold from 7m downhole including a 5m at 15.86g/t gold from 9m and a higher grade interval of 2m grading 32.64g/t gold from 9m. Chips from the high grade intervals include quartz vein fragments with iron oxides and boxworks textures. The intervals are all very oxidized and weathered. Check assays of the mineralised zone by SGS Lab in Belo Horizonte confirmed the mineralisation with results of 5m at 9.98g/t gold including 2m @ 18.27g/t gold (see Figure #6 and Table #4).

A limited RC follow-up program of three close spaced holes was completed to assess the anomalous result from the recent RAB program. Quartz veins were intersected but unfortunately with only low grades.

A review and re-interpretation of magnetics and radiometrics data in the Maria Bonita Prospect area suggests the old workings and gold-in-soil anomalies are located within the northeast-southwest trending Mamao - Babacu Trend where it is intersected by northwest-southeast cross faults. Recent "first pass" RC holes drilled in May-June may not have been drilled the optimal azimuth to test the intersection of both structural trends with the cross fault resulting in a dislocation of the earlier structures that host the workings and associated gold-in soil anomalism. Follow-up drilling is planned.

Mamao Mine Exploration

At Mamao Mine, the underground development reached the M2 Lode for the first time and revealed a strong shear structure hosting a series of boudinage style mineralised quartz veins up to 3m in width (see Photo below).

During the later part of the quarter, the M2 Lode 1140m West Sill Drive development was pushed beyond the existing Reserve model by 7.5m. A channel sample of 3.0m grading 5.0g/t gold was reported from the widest portion of development sill drive to the west. To the east the gold grade is consistent grading in the order of 2.0m at 16.0g/t gold.

At Melechete 1140 Level - West Sill Drive was extended beyond the cross fault where the ore zone was intercepted with good exposures of mineralised quartz vein. Channel sampling produced a 1.50m at 34.82 g/t gold. Also, the Melechete Lode was exposed in a cross-cut to Level 1120 as a narrow quartz vein with a good grade (0.70m at 66g/t gold).

The underground Diamond Core drilling at Mamao targeted the Melechete Lode West extension beyond the Reserve model as well as confirming internal grade and width continuity below the existing workings within the Reserve. The Melechete Lode West drilling targeted the lode on levels 080mRL, 060mRL and 040mRL. The drilling to date suggests limited extensions (up to 20m beyond the model) of the known mineralisation. Significant underground drilling intercepts included; 1.0m at 38.01g/t gold, 2.7m at 15.61g/t gold, 1.1m at 67.32g/t gold, 1.1m at 66.0g/t gold, 2.8m at 18.20g/t gold, 2.1m at 12.75g/t gold and 1.0m at 22.27g/t gold (see Table #6).

Andorinhas Regional Exploration

Low impact field work, including mapping and soil sampling, continued on the Horizonte JV with work focussed on the northern portion of the Rio Maria West area and further north along the western portion of the Malvinas Trend.

The northern part of the Rio Maria West (RMW) area is located about 8kms west of the Rio Maria town site. The area has been the site of earlier garimpeiro stream based alluvial workings and at least four historic garimpeiro pits extending into in primary mineralisation. These workings are hosted in mafic metavolcanics rocks with quartz veins within shears zones occur in a similar setting and have a similar style of mineralisation as noted immediately to the south at the Manoel and Anastacio workings within the southern portion of the RMW block.

The regional geology comprises mafic metavolcanics rocks with small contribution of ultramafic metavolcanics, felsic intrusives and possibly metasediments. Quartz veins are common generally white, massive, with rare trace pyrite (oxidized). The veins strike N260 degrees E - N280 degrees E. Quartz vein float is common and can be over areas up to 20.0m. Ultramafic metavolcanic rocks occur in the Parana and Serrinha Workings and there appears to be a felsic intrusive exposed in the Bezerro Queimado Garimpo. The Serrinha and Bezerro Queimado Workings are the two larger pits in the area and they are aligned along an east-northeast trend. The Serrinha Pit has 120m x 80m x 60m and Bezerro Queimado Pit has 110m x 70m x 60m with limited underground workings (see Figure #10).

The geology of Bezerro Workings predominantly metavolcanics rocks that host north dipping (-30 degrees) quartz veins dipping up to 0.5m in width.

At Rio Maria West the soil program along the Bezerro - Serrinha Trend yielded significative results with a maximum of 1,989ppb gold and 6 zones above 110ppb gold. The results defined a 3km long east-northeast striking anomalous trend up to 300m wide within which rock grab sampling of float and outcropping veins yielded values up to 36.75g/t gold as reported last month. At south of the main trend another anomalous zone was defined over 1.6km including 4 zones above 100ppb gold with maximum of 811ppb gold and rock chips yielding up to 2.20g/t gold.

This recent work along with earlier mapping and sampling in the southern part of the WRM block (Manoel and Anastacio Targets) has now outlined 4 east-west trending shear zones that host a series of old workings, anomalous quartz vein grab samples and gold-in-soil anomalism. RAB & RC drilling of these targets is planned but is delayed pending completion of DNPM's investigation of recent garimpeiro activity.

On the northern part of the Horizonte JV, an infill soil program at Malvinas resulting in the collection of 440 samples further defined several known anomalous gold-in-soil trends and identified a number of RAB Drill targets. Thirty-two percent of the results were above 100ppb gold with maximum of 1,403ppb gold (see Figure #11).

EXPLORATION - MONGOLIA

The exploration program has been terminated and Mongolian office is in the process of being closed. All of technical staff were laid-off in mid-June. A limited administrative team will continue work to close the office, sell the physical assets and complete a marketing effort for Gutain Davaa.

FINANCIAL REPORT

CASH POSITION

As at 30 June 2009, Troy within Australia held 32.1M in available cash and bank deposits with major Australian banks and 315 ounces of gold awaiting sale ($0.4M at A$1,161 per ounce). This equates to a total of approximately $32.5M of liquid assets. In addition, Troy held $2.4M in cash deposits as security for various environmental bonds.

Troy's wholly owned Brazilian and Canadian subsidiaries held cash deposits of $2.8M. At quarter end, Sertao Mineraco Ltda ("SML"), Troy's 70% owned Brazilian subsidiary, had the equivalent of $0.3M in cash (Troy's share). Reinarda Mineracao Ltda ("RML") held 340 ounces of gold awaiting sale ($0.4m at A$1,161 per ounce).

The Troy group equity share of available cash and other liquid assets is approximately $36.0 million as at 30 June 2009. Troy also holds investments in listed securities with market values totalling A$1.7million as at 30 June 2009.

GOLD SALES

Gold sales from the Sandstone operation for the quarter were 8,435 ounces at an average price of A$1,217 per ounce. The average Cash Cost was A$543 per ounce which gives a Cash Margin of $674 per ounce for the quarter.
