Typhoon Continues the 20,000 Meters Drill Program at Fayolle and Aiguebelle-Goldfields

LAVAL, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 12, 2006) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TOO) is pleased to announce the start of an aggressive NQ diamond drill program on December 6, 2006 at the Fayolle and Aiguebelle-Goldfields properties, in the Rouyn-Noranda Mining Camp in northern Quebec.

This program is part of the 20,000 meters drill campaign previously announced in the spring 2006 and will cover the December 2006 to April 2007 period. The drilling aims at extending the Fayolle and Aiguebelle-Goldfields gold mineralization laterally, to the west-northwest at Fayolle towards Aiguebelle-Goldfields, and at depth.

Typhoon will also continue working on a scoping study at Fayolle. The Fayolle and Aiguebelle-Goldfields properties form an 8 kilometer long segment of the Destor-Porcupine Fault just north of the Rouyn-Noranda Mining Camp.
