COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2012) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) ("Troymet" or the "Company") updates exploration progress on its 100% owned Key gold project in British Columbia. The $1 million exploration program is fully permitted and includes prospecting, soil sampling, induced polarization ("IP") geophysical surveying and diamond drilling. To date the first phase of prospecting and soil sampling program has been completed with assay results pending.
Planned line cutting and IP surveying has been temporarily delayed due to active logging in the proposed survey area by Canfor (see news release of July 24, 2012). Troymet plans to proceed with the IP program when it is satisfied there will be no potential conflict with Canfor's logging program.
Troymet anticipates significant benefits from the logging program in the form of new bedrock exposures and possible new mineralized zones, as well as multiple new access routes to the various target zones which will facilitate easy access for diamond drilling. The increase in the number and quality of logging roads will allow year-round access for drilling.
The 8,854 hectare Key project has significant discovery potential, is road accessible, and is strategically located between New Gold Inc.'s Blackwater gold deposit and the 3Ts gold project of Independence Gold Corp. This is Troymet's second summer field season exploring for precious metals on the Key project, where the Company's exploration programs have identified a number of high potential gold targets.
