Typhoon's Annual General Assembly is Scheduled for August 8th, 2012

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 31, 2012) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. - (TSX VENTURE:TYP) announces that the Annual General Assembly of the Company will be held August 8th, 2012 at 10h30 a.m., in the Vimont room of the Sheraton Hotel in Laval (2440, Autoroute des Laurentides, Laval, QC).

Mr. David Mc Donald, President and CEO of Typhoon, would like to take this opportunity to share his comments regarding this past year:

During the past year, the price of gold led to fears of a global recession, fueled by the «Euro crisis» and the slowdown in China, pushing investors to abandon or sell their shares.

The past year has been of particular significance with regards to exploration activities for Typhoon Exploration Inc. In fact, following the signing of the agreement with Aurizon Mines Ltd. on the Fayolle Project, exploration works of an unprecedented magnitude were conducted and financed by Aurizon Mines Ltd. In 2010, 10,339 meters of drilling were completed, in 2011, a total of 41,369 meters were completed and the 2012 Winter campaign totaled 7,136 meters of drilling. In parallel with the work carried out on the Fayolle Project, Typhoon proceeded in December 2011 with a drilling campaign on the Monexco Property and completed a total of 1,050 meters as well as drillings on the Destorbelle Property (in partnership with Diamond Frank Exploration Inc.), for a total of 1,322 meters. In early 2011, a drilling campaign was carried out on the Aiguebelle-Goldfields Property, for a total of 1,103 meters.

In light of the results obtained to date, we are very confident that the exploration works in progress on all our properties located in the Mont-Brun sector, will allow increasing the resources and economic potential of the Fayolle Deposit, while identifying other high potential areas. Let us remind you that these properties are all located in a highly favorable zone, as identified by both Typhoon and Aurizon geologists as well as those of the Quebec government. This zone is located at the intersection of several faults which make up the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone.
