Orex Minerals Inc.: Drilling Program to Start in May for Over 10,000 Metres on
the Coneto Gold-Silver Project in Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 3, 2014) - Orex Minerals Inc.
- (TSX VENTURE:REX) ("Orex"), is pleased to announce that the 2014
diamond drilling program will begin in May on the Coneto Gold-Silver Project in
Durango State, Mexico. The program will consist of approximately 10,800 metres
in 28 holes, located in five areas on the Coneto property. A technical
committee, with representation of both Orex and its project partner Fresnillo
plc (LSE:FRES) ("Fresnillo"), is planning the Coneto exploration
program, with Fresnillo as the operator. 
According to Orex's President, Gary Cope, "Following the results of
the first two drilling phases, this new drilling program will expand our
understanding and lead to the discovery of new gold and silver mineralization
at Coneto. We look forward to continuing success on the Coneto Project."  
Previously announced Phase-I and Phase-II drilling programs consisted of 17,000
metres in 52 drill holes. This new Phase-III drilling program has been planned
for 28 diamond drill holes in five areas, including La Bufa-Santo Nino-Reliz,
La Palma, Descubridora-El Indio, Loma Verde and Impulsora-Promontorio. The two
objectives of this program are to continue to test mineralization along the
known veins, and to test, with deeper holes, the unconformity contact between
the Tertiary andesitic volcanics and the underlying Cretaceous sedimentary
rocks. 
Exploration programs have also begun on Orex's Los Crestones
Gold-Copper-Silver Project in Sinaloa State, Mexico. Orex has commissioned MPX
Geoservices Ltd. to complete a helicopter-borne geophysical survey over Los
Crestones. The proposed airborne magnetic and radiometric survey totals 993
line-km and will test the entire 4,168 hectare property at 50m line spacing.
The survey is scheduled to be flown in mid-April.  
Orex has decided to terminate the option agreement on the Persistence
Copper-Gold Property in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, and have
notified the vendor Cazador Resources Ltd.  
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. The project is located
in the Mesa Central, on the eastern flank of the Sierra Madre Occidental
Mountains. 
Orex and Fresnillo hold 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.  
LOS CRESTONES GOLD-COPPER-SILVER PROJECT - SINALOA, MEXICO 
Orex Minerals Inc. owns 100% of Los Crestones Project, a gold, copper and
silver property in the "Gold-Silver Trend" on the western slope of
the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, northern Sinaloa, Mexico. It is east of
El Gallo, north of Tameapa and southeast of San Jose de Gracias. The current
interpretation of mineralization is that of north-south oriented structural
zones hosting quartz veins, quartz stockworks and breccia fill, associated with
dykes and porphyry-style mineralization. Three structural zones, Corona,
Bohemia and Indio, are elongate structures recognized on surface as
erosion-resistant silicified ribs or "crestons". In addition several
other sub-parallel structures are known on the property. 
The 4,168 hectares property is currently undergoing geological and geochemical
mapping and sampling, which will be followed by a geophysical program and a
Phase-II diamond drilling program. Results of the Phase-I diamond drilling
program at Los Crestones were summarized in a news release on 15 January, 2014.
