Orex Minerals Inc.: Attractive Gold and Silver Results Received from Trenching 
on the Loma Verde and Santo Nino Structures, Coneto
Project, Durango, Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/13 -- Orex
Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:REX) ("Orex") is pleased to announce that
the results from trench channel sampling along a 750 metres
strike-length of Loma Verde and an 850 metres strike-length of Santo
Nino structures have been received 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 the Coneto exploration program. 
Trench SN-9 yielded an intercept of 3.45 metres grading Au 6.79 g/t
and Ag 279 g/t for a gold-equivalent of 11.86 g/t, or a
silver-equivalent of 652 g/t.  
Trench LV-24 yielded an intercept of 3.20 metres grading Au 1.20 g/t
and Ag 240 g/t for a gold-equivalent of 5.56 g/t, or a
silver-equivalent of 306 g/t.  
According to Orex's President, Gary Cope, "Detailed surface channel
sampling results have confirmed the precious metal potential for
structures at Coneto. The Technical Committee has recommended a
program for the next 6 months, consisting of geological mapping and
sampling, with renewed diamond drilling scheduled for 2014. We look
forward to more success on the Coneto Project." 
Loma Verde is a north-south striking, steeply dipping epithermal
vein, 1 km west of the village of Coneto, which has been tested in 50
trenches. Santo Nino is a similar structure on the west side of Cerro
La Bufa, 3 km northwest of the village of Coneto, which has been
tested by 40 trenches. As the veins are near-vertical dip, the
channel lengths approximate true thicknesses. 
The following table highlights key intercepts along the trenching of
the Loma Verde and Santo Nino structures. Full details and a
trenching location map have been prepared for the Orex website.

Silver-equivalent, for the purposes of this news release, is defined
as silver grade plus 55 times gold grade. Gold-equivalent is defined
as gold grade, plus silver divided by 55. The 55:1 ratio is based on
the rolling 2013 averages of spot prices of silver and gold.
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, Real de Angeles, and Zacatecas mining
camps. 
Orex and Fresnillo hold extensive contiguous mineral concessions in
the Coneto Mining District, which collectively total approximately
17,600 hectares and cover an extensive area of 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. Trench channel samples were taken using the same
QA/QC protocols as the diamond drilling program, with the insertion
of analytical standards, blanks and duplicates. Analyses were
performed in the laboratories of ALS Chemex. These surface trench
results are in agreement with the tenor of mineralization in the
diamond drilling results of Loma Verde, as announced in news releases
(dated: 2012-11-07, 2010-08-09 and 2010-07-06).
