Western Troy Announces Final Assay Results From Summer Drilling at Macleod Lake

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2007) - Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WRY)("Western Troy") announced that it has received assay results on the remaining 16 holes drilled at its MacLeod Lake molybdenum copper project in Northern Quebec. These 16 holes, combined with the 41 holes previously announced totaled 6,629 meters for the summer drilling program. The results will be incorporated into an updated 43-101 resource calculation. The resource calculation should be available within a few days and the updated complete 43-101 will be published within 45 days of the publication of the resource calculation. The table below shows the significant intercepts along with a description of the meaning of each (depths and widths are in meters). All holes were vertical or at angles designed to cut across the mineralized zones at close to 90 degrees, but the intercepts described below may not represent the true width of the mineralized zones.

Rex Loesby, President of Western Troy, commented, "Hole 187, with 40 meters of 0.97% copper and 0.23% molybdenum, and hole 190, with 34 meters of 0.88% copper and 0.11% Mo, were drilled on the northern edge of the main zone and are two of the best intercepts we have seen at MacLeod Lake. These holes, along with the other step-out holes in the Main and South Zones should result in a significant increase in resource size and grade. In a previous release we described a very high grade intercept 3,000 meters to the east of the Main Zone. Holes 186 and 191 described below are step out holes from that high grade hole. These three holes validate our view that there continues to be good prospects for the discovery of additional mineralized zones along the 15 kilometer contact between the granodiorite and gneisses."

------ ---- -- ----- --- ---

183 60.00 62,24 2.24 1.156 0.002
Step out hole west of the Main Zone indicated resource. High

Holes 189 & 194: No significant results. Generally below cutoff

South Zone Expansion Drilling:

Holes 145 through 148: No significant results. Generally below cutoff
around the fringe of the South Zone resource.

Test of target 3000 meters East of Main Zone. Drilled approximately
150 meters from hole 186 and shows continuity of the mineralized zone.

Quality Control

Western Troy has a quality control program in place to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of drill core. Samples of drill core are sent to the ALS Chemex preparation laboratory in Val d'Or, Quebec for sample prep and analysis for gold following which a pulp sample is sent to the ALS Chemex North Vancouver lab for ore grade analysis for silver, copper and molybdenum. ALS Chemex is an ISO 9001: 2000 registered laboratory with the North Vancouver lab accredited by the Standards Council of Canada to ISO 17025 levels. Company quality control procedures include the analysis of its own blanks, and duplicates, introduced among the batches of samples, in addition to those used by the laboratory for its routine testing. Samples are crushed to greater than 70% passing 10 mesh, and pulverized to greater than 85% passing 200 mesh. A fraction of the pulps is analyzed for gold by fire assay and AAS. Another fraction of the pulps is digested in aqua regia acid and ore grade silver, copper and molybdenum values are determined by AAS.

About Western Troy

Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration company. It's 100%-owned MacLeod Lake Property hosts a well defined Main Zone of mineralization as outlined by extensive drilling, as well as the South Zone and several IP anomalies of potential interest. In October of 2005, Western Troy received an independent Technical Report consistent with National Instrument 43-101 on its MacLeod Lake Property located about 275 km north of Chibougamau, Quebec. The report has been filed on SEDAR and is available at www.SEDAR.com and on Western Troy's website, www.WesternTroy.com. Western Troy has also entered into an Exploration and Development agreement with Aurum Exploration Inc. of Panama, to earn up to 70 percent of Aurum's interest in the Viento Frio Mineral Exploration Concession, District of Santa Isabel, Colon Province, Panama. The Viento Frio Concession consists of 10,363 hectares (104 square kilometers) of land that is prospective for gold and base metal mineral deposits. The property was explored by Minera Rayrock between 1999 and 2001. Rayrock collected 1,918 soil samples and drilled 24 shallow holes totaling 1710 meters. High silver values in the core and anomalous gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc values in rock chip and soil samples over a large area indicate the Concession is prospective for a large low-sulfidation epithermal system as well as additional gold/silver deposits. The shares of Western Troy trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol WRY, with 19,550,970 shares outstanding.
