Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is pleased to announce a total of 26 drill holes focused on expansion and definition drilling of the High Grade Zone on the Perron Project. See Figure 1 for a plan view of the geology of the EGZ and the mineralized zones.

 

Today’s results are focused on on-strike expansion as well as definition drilling of the High Grade Zone as the Company works towards its maiden resource on the Perron Project. A complete list of results is available in Tables 1 & 2 and presented in Figures 2, 3, & 4. Photos of visible gold in select drillholes are presented in Figure 5. In addition to the results detailed below, Amex is awaiting results on over 14,200 samples at three labs from holes targeting the HGZ, Denise, QF Zone, and Grey Cat Zone, as well as regional exploration drilling.

 

Jacques Trottier, PhD, Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, “I am very excited with today’s results for several reasons. Firstly, the highest metal factor hole in this release, PE-21-409 returning 43.74 g/t Au over 6.90 m, comes from an area of the shallower HGZ that had previously thought to be lower grade as shown in Figure 3. Three additional intercepts, PE-21-418, PE-21-399 and PE-383W1, also confirm the high grade potential in this “lower grade” area that should add significant ounces to the eventual resource estimate. Secondly, our drilling at depth continues to reaffirm our interpretation of strong continuity and a larger “envelope” of greater than 50 metal factor mineralization. Amex has a number of drillholes pending from the High Grade Zone as well as across the project and we look forward to receiving the outstanding results.”

Qualified Person

Maxime Bouchard P.Geo. M.Sc.A., (OGQ 1752) and Jérôme Augustin P.Geo. Ph.D., (OGQ 2134), Independent Qualified Persons as defined by Canadian NI 43-101 standards, have reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release. The drilling campaign and the quality control program have been planned and supervised by Maxime Bouchard and Jérôme Augustin. The quality assurance and quality control protocol include insertion of blank or standard every 10 samples on average, in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate, and standard samples accredited by Laboratoire Expert during the analytical process. Gold values are estimated by fire assay with finish by atomic absorption and values over 3 ppm Au are reanalyzed by fire assay with finish by gravimetry by Laboratoire Expert Inc, Rouyn-Noranda. Samples containing visible gold mineralization are analyzed by metallic sieve. For additional quality assurance and quality control, all samples were crushed to 90% less than 2 mm prior to pulverization, in order to homogenize samples which may contain coarse gold. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration.
