Multiple High Grade Intersects Expand the Western Limit of Eastern Gold Zone at Depth With Results Up To 178.60 g/t Au over 1.20 m






Amex Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMX) (FRA: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) is very pleased to report, after announcing last week the Grey Cat Zone discovery, the results of six drill holes on the Eastern Gold Zone on its Perron property in northwestern Quebec, Canada (see figure 1 and 2). A complete list of results is provided in table 1.


All of the drill holes intersected the EGZ with gold intersects coming from both the High Grade Zone and the Low Grade Zone which has been renamed as the Denise Zone. See holes PE-19-76 and PE-19-83 in figures 3 and 4.


In the Denise Zone:


  • Hole PE-19-83 intercepted 32.20 m grading 6.99 g/t Au including 1.20 m of 178.16 g/t Au at a vertical depth of ~500 m.
  • New high-grade intersection in the Denise Zone shares several characteristics with the HGZ as it is hosted by quartz-carbonate-pyrite veins with free gold along the contact of a gabbro crosscutting the sodic rhyolite host rock.


In the High Grade Zone:


  • Hole PE-19-76 intercepted 15.60 m grading 3.05 g/t Au including 0.50 m of 19.00 g/t Au and 0.85 m grading 32.05 g/t Au at a vertical depth of ~300 m.
  • Hole PE-19-83, in the HGZ, returned 11.10 m grading 3.40 g/t Au including 0.60 m of 43.34 g/t Au and 0.90 m of 10.73 g/t Au at a vertical depth of ~360 m.
  • Expanded the zone by more than 55 m at depth and 35 m westward (see figure 4).
  • Both intercepts of holes PE-19-83 and PE-19-76 on the HGZ were typical of mineralization of the zone, which consists of two quartz-carbonate-pyrite-sphalerite veins with free gold along the border of a gabbro crosscutting the sodic rhyolite host rock.


Jacques Trottier, Ph.D., Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, “The HGZ is continuing to deliver the high grade results that we have grown accustomed to seeing and is expanding at depth and laterally. We have extended the HGZ by over 55 meters to depth and over 35 meters to the west and we plan to continue drilling and expanding the extremely important Eastern Gold Zone during the upcoming fall and winter seasons.”


Trottier continued, “The new high-grade intercept on the Denise Zone of hole PE-19-83 coupled with some previously drilled high-grade intercepts in this zone has totally changed our vision of what we had previously named the low-grade zone. Similarities between this new intersection in the Denise Zone with the HGZ give us high expectations for high-grade follow-up targets at depth.”


Kelly Malcolm, VP Exploration of Amex added, “Each of the three zones drilled in 2019 on our Perron Project (EGZ, Gratien, and the Grey Cat) have returned intersections with significant metal factors and visible gold. The abundance of gold mineralization identified in several zones along a 2.4 km long portion of the Beaupré block suggests high prospectivity for the western extension of the block that remains unexplored for several kilometers along strike. Regional exploration in the western part of the Beaupré block will be a significant component of our upcoming winter drilling program. ”

Qualified Person

Maxime Bouchard M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 1752) and Jérôme Augustin Ph.D., P.Geo. (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.
