(businesspress24) - LAVAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 06/08/12 -- Typhoon Exploration Inc. - (TSX VENTURE: TYP) announces the results of its winter drilling campaign on the Fayolle Project, 100%-owned by Typhoon. This Project is comprised of 39 mining claims and covers a surface of approximately 1475.12 hectares. It is located within the Aiguebelle and Clericy townships, at approximately 25 kilometers north-east of the town of Rouyn-Noranda. Typhoon Exploration Inc. acts as manager on this project, under an option agreement with Aurizon Mines ltd.

During the first quarter of 2012, Typhoon and Aurizon completed their 7,100 meter drilling campaign as planned. This campaign aimed to define the extensions and the geometry of the Fayolle Deposit, as well as improving the quality of the resources by drilling in a grid pattern with a spacing ranging between 25 and 50 meters. All was performed in order to supplement the information needed to produce a new resource calculation, expected by the end of the second quarter of 2012. We are also awaiting a metallurgical study of the gold recovery rate on the Fayolle Deposit.

This press release covers drill holes FA-12-93 to FA-12-100. The majority of surveys were conducted on the East side of the Fayolle Deposit, with the exception of drill holes FA-12-99 and FA-12-100, which were located in the central part of the zone. The corresponding sections generally show an extension of the mineralized zones with values consistently greater than 1g/t/Au. The mineralization pinches at the eastern limit of the Fayolle Deposit.
