Amex Reports 29.40 g/t Au Over 8.50 metres In Deepest Hole to Date on Eastern Gold Zone






Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FRA: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is very pleased to report multiple high grade drill results from the Eastern Gold Zone on its 100% owned Perron property in northwestern Quebec, Canada (see figure 1). A select list of results is provided in Table 1. Amex provides all drill data on its website at The drill results include intersections from the High Grade Zone of the Eastern Gold Zone.


Amex is pleased to report very high-grade gold from the deepest holes reported to date on the HGZ. Hole PE-20-137 significantly extends the gold mineralization at depth by 150 metres as well as along strike by 75 metres and is to the east of a late stage diabase dike as shown in Figure 2. Importantly, Hole PE-20-137 shows exceptional grade continuity over the composite interval of 29.44 g/t Au over 8.50 metres at a vertical depth of 570 metres including 60.47 g/t Au over 0.70 metres, 11.68 g/t Au over 1.00 metres, 48.71 g/t Au over 0.60 metres, 50.31 g/t Au over 0.50 metres, and 279.72 g/t Au over 0.50 metres.


In addition, Amex is pleased to report additional high grade gold mineralization in Hole PE-20-132 that intersected 62.67 g/t Au over 1.00 metre at a vertical depth of 385 metres, including 81.12 g/t Au over 0.50 metres and 44.21 g/t Au over 0.50 metres. This intercept includes a large quartz vein of which the entire interval, including the above intercepts, grades 11.68 g/t Au over 5.50 metres. A number of additional gold intersects from the HGZ and Denise Zones are reported in Table 1.


Dr. Jacques Trottier, Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration said, “The high-grade results reported today on the HGZ are very important to the Eastern Gold Zone and the overall Perron project. We have successfully targeted the projected eastward and depth extension of the HGZ with thick and high-grade vein intercepts of up to nearly one ounce per tonne gold over 8.50 metres. We look forward to continuing to test the size of this very high grade gold system now continuing on the East side of a late Proterozoic diabase dyke. In my personal opinion, this opens up a whole new area of exploration in the Eastern Gold Zone and is reminiscent of similar Abitibi gold mines that have significant depth potential.”

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.


The Qualified Persons have not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property, particularly in regards to the historical drill results. However, the Qualified Persons believe that drilling and analytical results were completed to industry standard practices. The information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Property but may not be representative of expected results.
