    CLARIFIES FINANCIAL POSITION

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - W. K. Crichy Clarke, President and CEO of TTM
Resources Inc. ("TTM" or the "Company"), is extremely pleased to announce
assay results for drill hole CHU 07-20 and complete results from CHU 07-19
from the Phase 2 drill program at its 100% owned Chu Molybdenum Project 65 Km
Southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia, Canada.
    As previously reported on August 22, 2007, "The immediate object of the
current Phase 2 drill program is to define sufficient tonnages of high-grade,
near-surface Mo mineralization in the hole 07-19 and 07-13 areas, which could
be considered as open pit material." In order to help distinguish these two
areas, the results will henceforth be named and reported on as CHU WEST,
representing the 07-19/06-06 area, and CHU EAST, representing the
07-13/07-14/06-10/06-12 area 750 meters to the southeast.
    Drill hole CHU WEST 07-20 was drilled at an Azimuth 250 degrees and a dip
angle of -45 degrees to test the width of the quartz-molybdenum stockwork zone
which strikes northwest and hosts the significant molybdenum mineralization at
CHU over the discovery's 1700 meter length. It entered the stockwork zone at
68.6 meters, returned 0.127% Mo over the next 109 meters. Lower grade
molybdenum values of 0.05% Mo were encountered over the next 71 meters before
exiting the stockwork zone.
    Assay results for the final 170 meters of CHU WEST 07-19 have been
received and the significant interval is re-stated here as 504 meters grading
0.109% Mo from 101 to 605 meters. CHU WEST 07-19 was drilled at an azimuth of
270 degrees and a dip of -70 degrees to test the effect of north-south
trending "feeder" structures cutting through the main northwest trending
quartz-molybdenum stockwork zone.
    CHU 07-20 was oriented to provide an estimate of the width and grade of
the stockwork zone while CHU 07-19 was oriented to provide information on its
grade, strike length, and depth.
    CHU 07-21 and CHU 07-22 are complete and pending assay results and CHU
07-23 is in progress. All of these holes were drilled at a dip angle of
-45 degrees to test for additional near surface high grade molybdenum
mineralization in this area.
    The second drill rig started on September 13, 2007 in the CHU EAST area
(CHU-E00l currently at a depth of approximately 200 meters) and is testing the
main stockwork zone where CHU 06-13 encountered 384 meters grading 0.096% Mo,
CHU 06-11 encountered 101 meters of .098% Mo, and CHU 06-12 encountered
89 meters of .113% Mo to the southeast of the CHU WEST drilling area. A number
of holes are planned in this area as it appears to indicate the same type of
structures as the CHU WEST zone. The program will test depth as well as length
and width.
    The IP survey covering the existing area, as well as some areas of the
property that have not been tested as yet, is expected to start the week of
September 24th, 2007 in an effort to better understand the existing and
surrounding areas of the property.

    Financial Position

    The Company would also like to take this opportunity to clarify its
financial position. The proceeds of the previously reported April 2007 Private
Placement, were invested in Bank of Montreal Government Investment
Certificates. The Company has absolutely no investment risk associated with
any of its shareholder equity.

    Terrace Update

    The Company is in receipt of the initial interpretation of the Air
Magnetics Survey from its 100% owned Terrace Project and is currently
reviewing the information. Soil sampling and mapping has commenced at Terrace
and will continue over the next two weeks. A full analysis of the Air
Magnetics is underway. The results will help determine the scope and direction
of the planned 2008 exploration program.
    Analyses of samples from the current program are completed at Eco-Tech
Laboratory Ltd. in Kamloops, BC. Quoted intercepts are based on analytical
analyses for molybdenum. Full assays for molybdenum were run on any molybdenum
analyses that exceeded 500ppm. The Company has in place a comprehensive
quality assurance/quality control program including standards, blanks and
duplicate samples that form part of the sampling protocol. In addition, the
laboratory has its own quality assurance program. The field program is
supervised by Richard Beck, BSc.Geology, and Anastasia Ledwon, BSc Geology, of
Hungry Hill Geological Ltd. of Telkwa BC. The technical information in this
news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory
requirements as set out in National Instrument 43-101. The technical
information provided in this press release was reviewed by Charles Ikona
(P.Eng.), a qualified person for the purposes of NI 43-101.
