Western Troy Announces Claim Staking on Molybdenum Prospect in Northern Quebec

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2007) - Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WRY) ("Western Troy") announced that it has map staked 150 claims in the Lac Viau area of the Caniapiscau Region of Quebec which is approximately 300 kilometers Northeast of Chibougamau. The property comprises about 85 sq. km. of prospective ground and has been named the "Holmstead" prospect by Western Troy.

The claims were staked in an area where anomalous values in molybdenum, zinc, rare earths and niobium were detected in the lake sediments by a Quebec Government lake sediment survey conducted in 2006 (see below). Six anomalous values in molybdenum ranged from 23 to 87 parts per million, where background values are approximately 3.5 parts per million or less. The anomalous values are concentrated in the vicinity of a contact between intrusive and gneissic rocks which appears to be geologically similar to Western Troy's MacLeod Lake Property that hosts a drill-defined molybdenum/copper resource.

Exploration crews are presently on site and are conducting a program of soil sampling and prospecting. The purpose of the survey is to try to locate the mineralized source of the anomalous lake sediments in the area. Results of this exploration program are expected in September.

The Quebec Government lake sediment survey was conducted to promote exploration in the area and outline areas of high potential for hosting mineral deposits (Gold in lake sediments in the Caniapiscau area, Cote-Nord Region by Marc Beaumier, 2006). The author of the report considered anomalous values as anything above the 85th percentile. In the case of molybdenum, the 85th percentile was 4 ppm so anything above this value was considered anomalous. The anomalous values are not conclusive evidence of the likelihood of the occurrence of a mineral deposit. The claims were map staked and registered on May 25, 2007 in the name of Western Troy (100% owner) at a cost of $17,500 and are valid for a period of 2 years from the staking date. Assessment work will be required to keep the claims valid after the two year period.
