Typhoon Publishes an Update of its Activities on the Fayolle Property

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 24, 2012) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYP) publishes an update of the activities on the Fayolle Property.

FAYOLLE PROPERTY:

(100%-owned by Typhoon)

The Fayolle Property straddles a section of approximately 15 km on the Porcupine-Destor Fault (80 million ounces of gold produced). This major structure of east-west orientation has generated several deposits in Québec (Beattie, Donchester, Duquesne, Davangus and Yvan-Vézina) and in Ontario (Timmins Gold Corp., Hawker-Holloway and Holt-McDermott).

The Fayolle Deposit surface area occupies a small portion of the Fayolle Property (23.23 km2). The Fayolle Project is located in the heart of Abitibi's developing mining projects such as the Westwood Project from Iamgold Mines, Joanna from Aurizon Mines, Canadian Malartic from Osisko and Beattie from the Clifton-Star-Osisko tandem. Worth noting is that the Fayolle Property is located less than 50 km from the Goldex (1.6 million ounces of gold), Laronde (5.0 million ounces of gold) and Lapa Mines (1.1 million ounces of gold), owned by Agnico-Eagle Mines (www.agnico-eagle.com) and less than 20 km from the Doyon-Mouska Mines and Westwood Project (3.4 million ounces of gold - see the 43-101 Report dated February 27th, 2009), owned by Iamgold.
