Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYP) announced today that the Company has completed a geochemical and an airborne geophysical survey on its wholly and exclusively owned Faille 1 Property. The Faille 1 Property is located less than 10 kilometers east of the Fayolle Project where a 15,000 meter drilling campaign is currently underway and is to be completed by December 2010 with a budget of 3.5 million dollars.

"Due to its strategic location, this property allows Exploration Typhoon Inc. to control over 35 km2 of favourable ground along the Destor-Porcupine Fault, this major structure renowned for its gold-bearing mineralization." said David Mc Donald, President and CEO of Typhoon Exploration Inc.

The property is composed of two blocks of mining claims which include 27 cells designated for a total of 11.25 km2. The property 100% owned by Typhoon Exploration Inc. is located in the townships of Cléricy and La Pause in Abitibi, near the extension of the prolific Porcupine-Destor Fault which has historically produced over 80 million ounces of gold.

The work performed involves several glacial (till) and glacial-fluvial (esker) sediment samples collected on the two blocks of the property. The geochemical results will allow to better target potential areas for gold mineralization.

The magnetic geophysical survey will help in highlighting the structures and the contacts within the dissimilar geological units spread over the property. 

The electromagnetic survey will allow evaluating the potential of the property for conductive mineralization which can contain sulphured minerals. It should be noted that the space between the flight lines indicates 100 m for a total of 292 linear km.

The combined results will allow the team of Typhoon Exploration Inc. to plan a drilling campaign on this property with a great potential, who remembered, is located in proximity to the Fayolle Project.

The planning and the interpretation of the glacial sediment survey were entrusted to Mr. Rémi Charbonneau, Ph.D. of the firm Inlandsis, qualified person as per the NI43-101 standard.

The airborne magnetic / electromagnetic survey was performed by the firm Prospectair Inc. of Gatineau.
