Western Troy Joins James Bay Joint Action Mining Committee, Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources Funds Access Road Study

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2006) - Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WRY) announced today that it has joined the James Bay Joint Action Mining Committee ("TJCM" or Table Jamesienne de Concertation Miniere). The TJCM is a joint industry/university/government committee dedicated to promoting sustainable mineral development in Northern Quebec and is the official spokesperson for the James Bay Territory regional government on all mining-related issues. Members of the committee include Majescor Resources, Ashton Mining, SOQUEM, Eastmain Resources, Western Troy, the Cree Mineral Exploration Board, local labor unions, and Chibougamau region elected officials. Currently, the primary focus of the TJCM is to work with industry members and all levels of government to assist in the development of the Lac Albanal Road (also known as the Otish Mountains Multi-Resource Access Road). In an effort to advance the project, the TJCM, in partnership with the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources has initiated a geologic study of the proposed road corridor. Results from this study will form the basis of a more comprehensive geotechnical study aimed at establishing the best path for the road. Should such a road be built, it would provide critical year-round access near Western Troy's MacLeod Lake molybdenum/copper project.

Under current proposals the road would be built as a Class 2 road. A Class 2 road would be adequate for the movement of heavy trucks. Anecdotal opinions as to the cost of such a road are in the range of less than $500,000 per kilometer. There is an existing paved road from Chibougamau north to Mistissini (approximately 90 kilometers). The road continues north as a gravel road approximately 100 kilometers to Tamiscamie. There is currently a winter road that continues on north from Tamiscamie to the former Eastmain Mine (approximately 130 kilometers). It is very likely the new road would follow within a few kilometers of the corridor of this winter road. The MacLeod Lake Project site is approximately 40 kilometers west of the Eastmain Mine. There is rail service at Chibougamau.
