ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - April 8, 2009) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYP) announces the results from drillings the Fayolle property owned 100% by Typhoon. They have shown the gold-bearing potential of the Mc Donald Showing located at more than 450 meters (1480 feet) to the east of the Fayolle Deposit, which contains 188,000 ounces of inferred gold, on the surface. (see attached map available at the following address: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/fayolle0408.pdf)

The FA-08-32 and FA-08-33 drill holes intersected 2.9 g/t gold on 13.0 meters and 4.79 g/t gold on 2.0 meters on the east lateral extension, near the surface. The FA-08-35 and FA-08-36 drill holes showed anomalous gold values, which confirms the presence of hydrothermal fluids rich in gold.

The FA-08-29 drill holes intersected more than 26 meters of gold values ranging between 0.72 g/t gold and 0.92 g/t gold on the lateral extension between the FA-08-09 and FA-08-15 drill holes, where intersections of 1.45 g/t gold on 6.0 meters and 4.26 g/t gold on 7.0 meters were obtained respectively.

The FA-08-27, FA-08-28, FA-08-30, FA-08-31, FA-08-34, drill holes were completed in the north area of the Mc Donald Showing in order to pursue the investigation of the extension towards the east, of the fuschite and carbonate alteration zones from the Fayolle Deposit. The analysis results obtained showed many gold values, ranging from 0.12 g/t gold to more than 1.82 g/t gold. The ones obtained in the altered horizons are showing that the gold-bearing horizons of the Fayolle Deposit continue to the east, where hydrothermal fluids circulated.
