COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2012) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") reports the fall drilling program on its 100% owned Key gold project in British Columbia has been completed. A total of 867 metres of reverse circulation drilling (RC) were completed in 16 holes. Drilling tested gold-in-soil anomalies +/- coincident induced polarization anomalies in the Buzz (10 holes), SGN (2 holes), P1A (2 holes) and Blue (2 holes) target areas.
Induced polarization surveys (9.6 kms) were conducted over the SGN, Blue, Moly, Tsacha, VF and Eye target zones (see http://www.troymet.com/i/maps/Key_Au-Zones.jpg). The strongest association of gold-in-soil and IP anomalies were identified at the Buzz, SGN and Blue target zones with the result that these were selected as priority targets for drill testing. The P1A target is a coincident gold-in-soil anomaly and VTEM anomaly on the north side of a strong IP anomaly. Active logging restricted access to certain other drill targets in the SGN, Blue and Moly zones.
The 8,854 hectare Key project is strategically located immediately adjacent to New Gold Inc.'s Blackwater gold deposit where a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment was announced on September 20, 2012.
Casselman Geological Services Ltd. provided technical management of the field program for the Company. Drill samples will be analyzed at ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. in Vancouver, BC, an ISO 9001:2000 accredited laboratory. Troymet maintains a QAQC program whereby standard samples and blanks are inserted into each batch of samples to ensure quality control. Results will be reported once all are received, interpreted and validated.
