AMEX REPORTS 15.85 M OF 15.52 G/T AU AND 11.00 M OF 11.27 G/T AU FROM HIGH GRADE ZONE EXPANSION DRILLING

 

 

 

 

 

Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is pleased to announce assay results from a number of drill holes focused on expansion drilling of the High Grade Zone, part of the Eastern Gold Zone, of the Perron Project as shown in Figure 1. Today’s drill results demonstrate that the HGZ is expanding along strike, outside of the main high grade central ore shoot.

 

Highlights include:

  • 15.52 g/t Au over 15.85 m, including 198.36 g/t Au over 1.20 m, in hole PE-22-511W3 at a vertical depth of 750 m; and
  • 11.27 g/t Au over 11.00 m, including 203.72 g/t Au over 0.50 m, in hole PE-22-511W2 at a vertical depth of 785 m

 

As part of its resource definition program, Amex has been focused on expansion of known zones of mineralization through much of the 2022 drilling program. This drilling targeted the margins of the known gold mineralization as shown in Figures 2 & 3, outside of the main “core” of the HGZ that regularly delivers multi-ounce assay results. These results from the HGZ expansion are definitively adding significant tonnage and potential ounces to the overall ore zone. Of particular interest are the results from holes PE-22-511W2 & PE-22-511W3, which returned very high assay values (see Figure 4 for images of visible gold mineralization) in an area that low grade mineralization was expected. This is highly encouraging for exploration as it shows that high grade lenses exist outside of the main mineralized zone.

 

Jacques Trottier, PhD, Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, “The expansion drilling program on the HGZ is going very well. I was very excited seeing the strongly mineralized core especially in the two highlight holes. In addition to the high grade holes, the lower grade mineralization that we have been intercepting on the fringes of the system is adding significant strike and tonnage to the system which should enhance the future resource on the HGZ.”

True width is approximately 45-70% of reported intercepts. Metal factor is defined as gold grade in grams per ton multiplied by core length in metres.

In addition, the Company wishes to make a correction to the press release issued February 17, 2022, which stated that the quantity of shares issued in connection with the financing was 10,295,500. The correct quantity of shares issued was 10,292,500.

 

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.
