Troymet Exploration Corp. has updated progress on its 100% owned, 7,882-hectare Key property, which is located 125 km southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia.
The Company is pleased to report that it has completed a preliminary integration of historical soil sampling data from surveys completed by Prism Resources Inc., Placer Development Ltd. and BP Minerals Ltd. on the project. The three generations of overlapping soil geochemical surveys identified a broad trend of anomalous zinc, copper, lead, arsenic and silver values. The GN soil anomaly, which measures approximately 500 hectares (1,235 acres), overlaps target areas II and III, the GN fault and potential breccia pipes/diatremes. It further confirms the discovery potential of this area for precious metal mineralization.
The Company is planning induced polarization (IP) geophysical surveying to identify the sulphide concentrations in the target structures prior to diamond drilling. The property is readily accessible along a well developed network of established forestry roads.
The Key project adjoins the Blackwater project of Richfield Ventures Corp., where a bulk gold deposit has been discovered (September 25, 2009 news release). The Company believes there is a strong probability the mineralization will continue northwards along the GN and East faults towards the Blackwater project.
Tracy Hurley, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration and qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 is responsible for the technical information provided in this release.
