Typhoon Exploration Inc. Adds a 4th Drill on the Fayolle Project

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYP) announces the addition of a 4th drill on the Fayolle Project, explored in partnership with Aurizon Mines Ltd.

Two drills are mobilized for definition drilling on the Fayolle Deposit in order to confirm its size and geometry. Two other drills have been allocated for the systematic exploration drilling program covering the Fayolle Property in order to test different targets and geophysical anomalies along a favourable corridor measuring 2.5 km long by 1.0 km wide, all while being open at depth.

David Mc Donald, President and CEO points out that 28 of the 29 drill holes completed in 2010 intersected significant gold values, making this campaign a true success.

The Fayolle Project straddles about 15 km of the Porcupine-Destor Fault     (80 million ounces of gold produced) and clearly shows geological and structural similarities with the South Barnat Deposit, Kerr-Addison Mine and Beattie Mine.

In conclusion, some exploration work is currently taking place on a high-favourability zone, at more than 2 km from the Fayolle Deposit.

All drill cores are oriented using "CorientR" tool in order to measure their geological structures.
