Troymet Receives Drill Permit for Key Project

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2010) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a permit from the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to conduct diamond drilling on its 100% owned, 7,882-hectare Key property, located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia.

The Company has identified five areas with coincident gold-silver-zinc mineralization and locally tungsten in prospecting samples. The mineralization is structurally controlled and associated with pyrite and sphalerite +/- arsenopyrite mineralization. The Company is currently integrating available information for all recognized target areas, and planning induced polarization (IP) surveys with follow-up drilling. The IP surveys are designed to identify sulphide concentrations in the target structures that may be carrying gold and silver mineralization. The property is readily accessible along a well developed network of established forestry roads.

Troymet believes there is a strong probability the mineralization will continue northwards along the GN and East faults towards the adjoining Blackwater project of Richfield Ventures Corp., where a bulk gold deposit has been discovered (September 25, 2009 news release). As well, there are four volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) targets identified by an airborne geophysical survey. To date, there has been no diamond drilling on the Key project.

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.
