(businesspress24) - LAVAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- Typhoon Exploration Inc. - (TSX VENTURE: TYP) announces that it has received and interpreted assay results series of eleven (11) holes from the 2011 exploration campaign. The campaign was conducted on Typhoon's 100% owned Fayolle project, in which Aurizon Mines Ltd. may acquire a 50% interest, subject to a 2% royalty, in exchange for a $2 million private placement and conducting $10 million worth of work. This campaign was planned and executed by the Typhoon-Aurizon joint venture. These results are strictly exploration for the purpose of expanding new zones. Fayolle Deposit results are not included in this release and will be released in the near future.


The new results have allowed us to better define the potential for Vang, a new gold-bearing zone located about 600 metres to the southwest of the Fayolle Deposit. The Vang zone is characterized by the presence of an imposing mineralized monzodiorite dike. Several holes aiming to better identify the stratigraphy have allowed us to conclude that the zone was displaced by a fault zone on the northwest side. On the other hand, the Vang zone remains open to the southeast.



All the drill cores were oriented using CorientR instrument in order to measure the geological structures observed in the core. Deviation testing was performed with a FLEXIT instrument. The drill cores were cut in half, one part being kept as a control and the other part being analyzed. Analyses were performed by standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Certified reference materials, field duplicates and blanks are inserted into the sample sequence for quality control purposes. Primary assaying is performed by ALS-Chemex in Val-d'Or. The rejects for all samples returning greater than 10g/t Au are re-assayed by gravity finish.


Mr. Robert Gagnon, P. Geo. (OGQ) of Typhoon Exploration Inc., is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, to supervise the preparation of this press release.

The common shares of Typhoon Exploration Inc. are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "TYP".
