Orex Reports 10 Metres Grading 300 g/t Silver-Equivalent on

Orex Reports 10 Metres Grading 300 g/t Silver-Equivalent on the
Coneto Gold-Silver Project in Durango, Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- Orex
Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:REX) ("Orex") is pleased to announce the
results of the first six holes of the 12,000 metres Phase-II diamond
drilling program on the Coneto Gold-Silver Project in Durango,
Mexico. A technical committee, with representation of Orex and its
project partner Fresnillo PLC (LSE:FRES) ("Fresnillo"), is managing
this Phase-II program. 
Hole BCO-02 yielded a core length of 12.55 metres (true width 10.27
metres) grading gold 3.08 g/t and silver 138 g/t, for a
gold-equivalent of 5.70 g/t, or silver-equivalent of 299 g/t.  
According to Orex's President, Gary Cope, "These results confirm the
strength of the Loma Verde Vein and agree with our earlier Phase-I
drilling. Loma Verde remains partially open along strike and down
dip. It is one of 10 principal structures to be tested at Coneto." 
Several smaller mineralized veins and breccia zones were intercepted
in the hanging wall of Loma Verde, which will be studied in the next
few weeks. Hole BCO-05 yielded an unnamed vein of 2.95 metres (true
width 2.42 metres) grading gold 2.86 g/t and silver 9 g/t for a
gold-equivalent of 3.02 g/t, or silver-equivalent of 159 g/t.

Silver-equivalent for the purposes of this news release is defined as
silver grade plus 52.5 times gold grade. Gold-equivalent is defined
as gold grade, plus silver divided by 52.5. The 52.5:1 ratio is based
on the spot prices of silver $32/ounce and gold $1680/ounce.
Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be
100% for the equivalent values. Base metal values are not included in
the equivalent values. 
Coneto Mining District - Durango, Mexico 
The historic Coneto Mining District is situated in the heart of the
"Mexican Silver Trend", stretching from Guanajuato in the southeast,
through to the states of Zacatecas and Durango. The trend hosts some
of the world's largest silver deposits, including Fresnillo,
Guanajuato, La Pitarrilla, La Preciosa, Real de Angeles, and
Zacatecas mining camps. 
Orex and Fresnillo hold extensive contiguous mineral concessions in
the Coneto Mining District, which collectively total approx. 17,600
hectares and cover more than 50 known mineralized epithermal quartz
veins. The project is located in the Mesa Central, on the eastern
flank of the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains.  
Ben Whiting, P.Geo, is a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101 and
takes responsibility for the technical disclosure contained within
this news release. 
The first six holes, all in the Loma Verde sector of Coneto, are a
line of holes drilled beneath the successful Phase-I drilling program
(see news releases: July 6th 2010 and August 9th 2010). A drill hole
location map will be available on the Orex Minerals Inc. website at
www.orexminerals.com.
