Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is pleased to report drill results focused on definition and expansion drilling of the Denise Zone of the Eastern Gold Zone on the Perron Gold Project, Quebec. For reference the Denise Zone is approximately 20 to 100 m south of the High Grade Zone where the Company recently reported 79.22 g/t Gold over 6.15 Metres Including 929.24 g/t Gold over 0.50 Metres (press release June 28, 2021). See Figure 1 for a plan view of the geology of the EGZ and the mineralized zones.


Kelly Malcom Vice President of Amex Exploration will be speaking with InvestInGold on the Thursdays 10@10 segment this coming Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 10 am EDT. Kelly will give a brief 10 min presentation followed by 10 min Q&A. To register please click here.


Today’s results are focused on on-strike expansion as well as definition drilling of the Denise Zone as the Company works towards its maiden resource on the Perron Project. Today’s results expand the lateral strike of the Denise Zone by 100 m, bringing the lateral near surface strike of the Denise Zone to 450 m. A complete list of results is available in Table 1 and presented in Figure 2.


Jacques Trottier, PhD Executive Chairman of Amex said, “We have recently drilled a significant amount of near-surface holes into the Denise zone, as shown in Figure 2. Today’s results show only a fraction of the holes drilled on Denise with a number of holes still pending. It is our expectation that Denise will contribute a meaningful number of ounces in our upcoming maiden resource. Of particular interest are drillholes PE-21-262, 270, 273, and 277, all of which expand the Denise Zone eastward and even to the east of a cross-cutting late diabase dyke. This is meaningful in terms of continued strike expansion potential, as gold mineralization is strong and clearly present to the east. The Company will continue to work to expand this near surface envelope.”

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 Expertduring 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.
