Troymet Intersects Massive Sulphide Mineralization at McClarty Lake Project

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) (the "Company") is pleased to report new mineralized intersections on its McClarty Lake project in northern Manitoba. Four holes were drilled on 50-metre step outs to the 2007 VMS discovery. Three holes intersected massive pyrite, sphalerite and chalcopyrite bearing VMS mineralization over down hole core lengths ranging from 10 to 35 metres (true width is estimated to be 85% of core length). The fourth, and northernmost hole, intersected zones of pyrite and chalcopyrite bearing stringer type mineralization. The VMS mineralization has now been intersected over a strike length of approximately 100 metres and to a vertical depth of approximately 175 metres. Drilling is continuing.

The mineralized core has been split and sent for assay. Results will be reported once analytical results are received and evaluated. Photographs of mineralized core from the recent drilling have been posted on the Company's website at www.troymet.com/s/McClartyLake-Images.asp.

The alteration system associated with the mineralized system has been intersected in drilling over a strike length of approximately 500 metres (open). Troymet's consultant on the project, Dr. Alan Bailes, comments: "The sulphide mineralization and associated alteration system at McClarty Lake is very similar to that associated with the Chisel Lake and newly discovered Lalor Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits of the Snow Lake area. The amount of altered rocks encountered at McClarty Lake is significant and indicates that the property has considerable discovery potential."

The McClarty Lake project is located 47 kilometres southwest of Snow Lake, Manitoba. The current 3,000-metre drilling program is designed to follow up the 2007 base metal discovery (Reference: Sept. 26, 2007 news release), and to further test the +600-metre EM conductor system with which the base metal and gold-silver mineralization is associated.

The exploration program is being managed by Equity Engineering Ltd. of Vancouver, BC. Tracy Hurley, PGeo, Vice President, Exploration and qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 is responsible for the technical information provided in this release.
