Troymet's Drilling Underway at McClarty Lake VMS Project

COMOX, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TYE) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling is underway on its McClarty Lake project, located 47 kilometres southwest of Snow Lake, Manitoba. The 3,000-metre program is designed to follow up the exciting base metal intersections obtained in the 2007 drill program (Reference: Sept. 26, 2007 news release), and to further test the +600-metre conductor system with which the base metal and gold-silver mineralization is associated.

The McClarty volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization is a new discovery in a significantly under-explored area, and the Company believes the potential for further discovery is excellent. The property is located approximately 24 kilometres southeast of the VMS Ventures' Reed Lake discovery and approximately 45 kilometres south-southeast of HudBay Minerals' Lalor Lake discovery.

Dr. Alan Bailes, formerly Chief Geologist of the Precambrian Mapping Division, Manitoba Geological Survey, is consulting with the logging of the current and historical drill core. His expertise on the geology and VMS deposits of the Flin Flon - Snow Lake Belt is proving highly valuable in gaining an understanding of the stratigraphy, alteration and controls to mineralization at McClarty.

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.
