LAVAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - Dec. 11, 2013) - TYPHOON EXPLORATION INC. ("Typhoon") (TSX VENTURE:TYP) is pleased to announce positive results from the 2013 channel sampling campaign, from the Fayolle Deposit outcrop.


Trenching and systematic channel sampling (137.35 meters) of the subcroping eastern limit of the Fayolle Deposit allowed access to some high grade gold zones as defined in the resources estimate (Press Release September 6, 2012) in regards of their geometry and their geological controls.

Best gold intersections are related both to highly altered granodiorite as well as brecciated and altered komatiite containing 10 to 40% quartz-carbonate veinlets. Best results include 21.66 grams per ton gold over 4.40 meters and 27.06 grams per ton of gold over 2.90 meters. (see table of channel sampling results)

Most of the gold enriched samples are contained within a 20 x 10 m north-east trending cluster centered on a part of the altered granodiorite and the highly brecciated hosting komatiite. Other significant gold intercepts were found outside this zone, again often related to altered granodiorite and immediate komatiitic host rock. A grade of 0.1 to 1 gram of gold enrichment per ton is omnipresent.

Follow-up channel sampling of 30.8 meters was done to delineate at surface a grade contour to the mineralization. Results are still pending.

These gold zones represent the eastern limit of the mineralized system at surface and are not part of the more continuous gold resources modeled from previous drilling campaign but they provide useful information that will help targeting the upcoming drillings of the extension at depth of the gold system, which should begging in January 2014.

Exploration works on the Fayolle Project are conducted following cohabitation principles and meaningful engagement of the company toward local stakeholders.

Typhoon has initiated the continuous consultation and collaboration with citizens and public representatives early in the exploration process, facilitated by the opening of an office and coreshack in the Mont-Brun district. A close relationship has been built with the nearby Aiguebelle National Park and the City Hall (Regional Land Use Planning Department), located north of the Fayolle Project. The company considers that it is a priority to develop a close relationship with the Park and the City Hall based on mutual trust and supported by a continuous exchange of information with its administration. At the current exploration stage there are several collaborations underway with the Park, including a wildlife survey. Watershed quality monitoring will also be performed collaboratively as the project moves forward.

Typhoon is considered to be attuned, and in one concerns of opening, we are engaged to sustain the dialogue with the goal to optimize exploration and development works on our properties according to the needs of our living environment.


The realization of the proposed surface exploration efforts will provide critical basic information to better assess the recovery potential of existing resources, and to model drill targets that will lead to increase the property resources basis.
