High Grade Gold Intersected on Gratien Gold Zone at Perron With Results up to 16.48 g/t Au over 14.6 m Including 315.4 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 102.96 g/t Au over 0.7 m






Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FRA: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is very pleased to report the results of several drill holes on the Gratien Gold Zone on its Perron property in northwestern Quebec, Canada (see figures 1 and 2). A complete list of results is provided in table 1. Amex provides all drill data on its website at


In addition, the Company is very pleased to announce to date that it has completed approximately 27,000 metres during of its previously announced 25,000 metres 2019 drilling campaign. Amex plans to drill an additional 15,000 metres during 2019 for a planned total of 40,000 metres, using two drill rigs. This continued drilling will focus on expanding the Eastern Gold Zone (EGZ), the Gratien Gold Zone and the Grey Cat Zone, as well step-out exploration drilling along strike from the known mineralized showings. This additional drilling is fully funded from existing capital.


The Company initiated a drilling campaign on Gratien utilizing the same targeting methodology that was applied to identify the bonanza grades at the Eastern Gold Zone. The Gratien is located approximately 1.5 km from the EGZ and is a kilometer-long mineralized system comprised of several lenses of gold mineralization. All of the announced drill holes that intersected the Gratien zone are in close proximity to target depths, with high-grade gold intersects coming from the Main Gratien Zone as well as the Gratien Upper Zone, as shown in figures 2, 3, and Table 1.  


  • Hole PE-19-89 intersected 16.48 g/t Au over 14.60 m including a very high-grade core of 47.69 g/t Au over 4.95 m with individual intercepts of 315.40 g/t Au over 0.50 m and 102.96 g/t Au over 0.70 m at a vertical depth of ~145 m.
  • Hole PE-19-71 intersected 3.13 g/t Au over 12.80 m including 68.99 g/t Au over 0.50 m at a vertical depth of ~185 m.
  • Hole PE-19-72 intersected 29.21 g/t Au over 1.30 m including 75.56 g/t Au over 0.50 m at a vertical depth of ~85 m.
  • Hole PE-19-73 intersected 2.45 g/g Au over 15.20 m including 46.68 g/t Au over 0.50 m at a vertical depth of ~125 m.


Victor Cantore, CEO of Amex Exploration, commented, “Our Perron property, which is of district-scale potential, continues to return very high grade gold intercepts across the project. The results from the Gratien Zone indicate a very robust mineralized gold system. We look forward to continuing to define the potential of the known gold zones on the project, as well as regional exploration of undrilled structures to the east, west, and north of the known 2.4 km highly mineralized corridor. The Perron property hosts two faults each measuring 7 km which are dramatically underexplored. The exploration upside potential here is incredible.”

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.
