Temex Intersects 60.40 g/t Gold over 0.50 Metres Near Surface at Whitney Project, Timmins, Ontario

Temex Intersects 60.40 g/t Gold over 0.50 Metres Near Surface at Whitney 
Project, Timmins, Ontario 
TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSXV: TME), (FWB: TQ1) 
("Temex" or "the Company") reports assay results from the surface diamond 
drilling campaign on the Whitney Project located in Timmins Ontario. The 
drilling was conducted on the northwest part of the Upper Hallnor portion of 
the Whitney Property with the objective to expand the National Instrument 
43-101 ("NI 43-101") resource announced on the Upper Hallnor September 5, 2012 
(see below). 
Highlights of the drill results are shown below and detailed in the following 
table. 
Upper Hallnor Northwest Volcanic Horizon 


    --  TW12-234: 1.15 g/t gold over 20.00 metres; 1.83 g/t gold over
        4.00 metres including 26.10 g/t gold over 0.50 metres
    --  TW12-237: 2.38 g/t gold over 5.70 metres
    --  TW12-238: 7.33 g/t gold over 5.75 metres including 60.40 g/t
        gold over 0.50 metres and 27.50 g/t gold over 0.35 metres

Upper Hallnor Bonetal Mine Area
    --  TW12-239: 1.10 g/t gold over 8.00 metres including 11.30 g/t
        gold over 0.50 metres
    --  TW12-240: 1.89 g/t gold over 23.20 metres including 6.50 g/t
        gold over 2.70 metres, and including 28.80 g/t gold over 0.40
        metres
    --  TW12-241: 4.15 g/t gold over 3.50 metres and 1.68 g/t gold over
        5.20 metres
    --  TW12-242: 4.30 g/t gold over 3.00 metres including 16.18 g/t
        gold over 0.70 metres
    --  TW12-243: 1.67 g/t gold over 8.00 metres including 10.05 g/t
        gold over 0.50 metres

Mr. Ian Campbell, President and CEO of the Company stated, "We are very 
pleased that our exploration efforts continue to deliver excellent 
near-surface gold values that will add to the size of the Whitney resource and 
we are particularly interested in the new area of high grade visible gold 
mineralization discovered in hole TW12-238 that is within 50 metres of surface 
in an area where mineralization was previously unknown to occur in an area 
currently designated as waste within our current optimized pit shell on Upper 
Hallnor. While we are focused on advancing Whitney toward pre-production in 
a timely manner, the results of TW12-238 clearly highlight the strong 
exploration characteristics of the Property and the potential to find gold 
mineralization in zones not previously recognized."

Five holes were drilled in the north hanging wall volcanic rocks and 
intersected gold mineralization typical of the former producing Hallnor Mine 
and five holes tested the former producing Bonetal Mine. Importantly, hole 
TW12-238 intersected a new high grade gold zone near the top of the hole 
grading 7.33 g/t gold over 5.75 metres which represents a new near-surface 
discovery in an area with no previous drilling and it is wide open at depth 
and along strike to the west. This area lies within the current optimized pit 
shell and is currently designated as waste, giving the opportunity to convert 
waste into potential gold resources. The Hallnor hanging wall volcanic rocks 
are typified by multi-ounce, narrow, sheared veins that expand in places into 
extension vein stockworks historically exploited by bulk mining methods. 
Significantly, most of the holes intersected gold mineralization within 100 
metres of surface, and several of those intersections contain high grade 
visible gold.

Holes TW12-235, 238, 239, 240, 241, 242 and 243 intersected gold 
mineralization outside of the current NI 43-101 optimized pit resource shell 
and will be incorporated into future resource updates. Holes TW12-234, 236, 
and 237 targeted inferred resources in the north volcanic hanging wall within 
the northern extremity of the resource pit shell.

Work Program and Outlook
The drill campaign began in November 2012 with 10 holes totaling 2,029 metres 
completed prior to the end of the year. The 2013 program will continue to 
define near surface, high grade targets suitable for early start-up production 
opportunities and in some areas will upgrade inferred resources to the 
indicated category. The overall objective will be to meet higher grade, 
lower tonnage, low capital, and low operating cost criteria with the potential 
to generate quick cash flow as a first phase to life of mine plan 
production. Additional targets are anticipated to be generated as work 
continues on the on the Upper Hallnor, Bonetal, C Zone, Broulan Reef and Hugh 
Pam areas and incorporated into future resource estimates.

The Property is held under a joint venture under which Temex owns 60% and is 
operator and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. owns 40% ("Goldcorp") (as manager, and on 
behalf, of the Porcupine Gold Mines Joint Venture (a joint venture between 
Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp)); Temex is the operator of the joint venture. 
The results of the resource announced in September 2012 are summarized below 
and are shown on a 100% basis.

Mineral Resource Upper Hallnor In-pit at 0.30 g/t Au cut-off grade (news 
release September 5, 2012)

        a grade of 2.44 g/t gold

Notes: Temex implemented a quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure best 
practice in sampling and analysis. Drill core (NQ size) samples are cut at 
Temex facilities using a diamond saw with one half of the cut core placed into 
securely sealed bags. The remaining half of the core is kept as a permanent 
record and stored at a secure facility in Timmins. SGS Canada personnel 
transport batches of samples from the Temex facility to the SGS facility in 
Cochrane, Ontario for preparation and analysis. Core samples are analyzed 
for gold using a 30 gram fire assay with an ICO finish. Where initial 
results exceed 3 g/t gold, a second assay is completed on another 30 gram 
split with a gravimetric finish. Samples observed by Temex personnel to 
contain visible gold are assayed by screened metallics fire assay on a 500 
gram split. Intervals reported are core lengths. True widths are unknown at 
this time. 
Karen Rees, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration of Temex Resources Corp. is 
the designated qualified person responsible for the preparation of this news 
release. 
About Temex Resources Corp.
Temex is a Canadian based exploration company focusing on its portfolio of 
precious metals properties in Northeastern Ontario, a world class mining 
district. Temex (60% interest) is exploring the Timmins Whitney Property, in 
partnership with Goldcorp (40% joint venture interest; no back-in rights), and 
the Juby Gold Project. 
The Whitney Property has NI 43-101 compliant resources on the Upper Hallnor of 
3.0 million tonnes at a grade of 2.44 g/t gold for 234,300 ounces of gold in 
the Measured category, 8.8 million tonnes at a grade of 1.97 g/t gold for 
555,900 ounces of gold in the Indicated category, and 4.1 million tonnes at a 
grade of 1.82 g/t gold for 241,000 ounces of gold in the Inferred category, 
all at a cut-off grade of 0.30 g/t gold (Note 1). 
The Juby Main Zone has NI 43-101 compliant resources of 22.3 million tonnes at 
a grade of 1.30 g/t gold for 934,645 ounces of gold in the Indicated category 
and 28.2 million tonnes at a grade of 1.00 g/t gold for 905,621 ounces of gold 
in the Inferred category, both at a cut-off grade of 0.40 g/t gold (Note 2).
