Troy Resources NL: Reported Changes to Argentinean Foreign Exchange Rules

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Troy Resources NL ("Troy") (TSX:TRY)(ASX:TRY) -


Troy Resources NL today noted reports on Bloomberg that the Argentinean Government had announced changes to the way Resources companies hold their export revenues. Currently companies operating mining and oil and gas facilities can hold foreign income offshore. The report indicates that companies will need to repatriate revenue back to Argentina before making any distributions such as loan repayments or dividend distributions. As of yet there have been no formal announcements as to how the changes would work in practice and it is uncertain what if any implications there will be for Troy. We will update the market as soon as we receive further clarifying information.

Commenting on the news, Troy's CEO, Paul Benson said, "At this stage we do not have clarity on exactly what these reported changes will mean in practice. It is worth noting however that based on the limited information available, the proposed changes would appear to bring mining and oil companies in line with how other industries are already regulated in Argentina and would also bring it into line with how Brazil regulates its mining companies."
