Troymet Completes Airborne VTEM Survey at the Key Project

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2008) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a helicopter-borne VTEM survey over the Company's 100% owned Key property located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia.

The exploration target on the Key project is a precious metals-rich volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit. The 7,882-hectare property covers an area of anomalous lake sediment geochemistry centered on a sequence of basaltic to rhyolitic volcanics, possibly preserved within a graben structure. The geological setting has strong parallels to that of the gold- and silver-rich Eskay Creek deposit in northwestern British Columbia.

The VTEM time domain EM system is excellent for locating discrete conductive anomalies as well as mapping lateral and vertical variations in resistivity. It also includes a magnetometer for mapping of geologic structure and variation in lithology. The 165 line-kilometre survey was conducted by GEOTECH Ltd. Results of the survey will be released once received and evaluated. A property-wide prospecting program to follow up on the results of the survey is under consideration for the 2008 field season.

Tracy Hurley, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration and qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 is responsible for the technical information provided in this release.
