Orex Minerals Inc. and Fresnillo plc Completes Phase-IV Exploration Diamond Drilling Program

Orex Minerals Inc. in conjunction with their project partner Fresnillo PLC have completed a Phase-IV exploration diamond drilling program, consisting of 4,656 metres in 11 holes on the Coneto Gold-Silver Project in Durango, Mexico. The program was designed to test multiple structures in approximately 100 to 200 metres step-outs. Highlights include mineralized intercepts in Loma Verde, Durazno, Durazno Alta, La Bufa Alta, Santo Niño, and Promontorio. On Loma Verde, two holes were drilled 150 metres north of the northernmost previous drilling and have extended the zone. The deeper of the two holes, BCO-66, intersected 4.85 metres (true thickness 3.45 m) grading Au 3.22 g/t and Ag 238.4 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 431.6 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 7.19 g/t. In the Durazno-Impulsora area, the interpretation is that the Durazno Zone has been down-drop faulted with respect to the Impulsora Zone. To test this, a deep hole was drilled to intersect Durazno 370 metres below surface. Hole BCO-68 first intersected a hanging-wall vein, Durazno Alta, for 1.05 metres (true thickness 0.86 m) grading Au 34.50 g/t and Ag 29.7 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 2,099.7 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 35.00 g/t. The main Durazno structure yielded a 8.34 metres (true thickness 6.92 m) grading Au 1.71 g/t and Ag 2.9 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 105.4 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 1.76 g/t. Within this intercept is 1.45 metres (true thickness 1.19 m) grading Au 5.03 g/t and Ag 6.3 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 308.3 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 5.14 g/t. In the Bufa-Santo Niño area, sub-parallel north striking, steeply dipping veins are present. Hole BCO-62 yielded a deep Santo Niño intercept of 2.65 metres (true thickness 2.17 m) grading Au 1.08 g/t and Ag 137.9 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 202.7 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 3.38 g/t. Hole BCO-63 yielded a La Bufa Alta intercept of 2.70 metres (true thickness 1.74 m) grading Au 0.95 g/t and Ag 200.9 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 257.7 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 4.29 g/t. In the Promontorio area, a broad zone of quartz-hematite stockwork veinlets is present. Hole BCO-72 was drilled to intercept Promontorio 250 metres below surface and 120 metres below previously reported BCO-60. Hole BCO-72 yielded an intercept of 19.00 metres (true thickness 15.56 m) grading Au 0.77 g/t and Ag 10.1 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 56.4 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 0.94 g/t. Within this intercept is 5.55 metres (true thickness 4.55 m) grading Au 2.00 g/t and Ag 27.4 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 144.7 g/t, or a gold-equivalent of 2.41 g/t.
