NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

  • The property has increased to 328% of the original October 2009 size in order to cover additional iron formation targets identified from recently flown airborne survey

MONTREAL, Feb. 8 /CNW Telbec/ - Argex Mining Inc. (Argex) (TSX-V: RGX) (FSE: ASV) (OTCBB: ARGEF) has further increased the size of the Mouchalagane property by staking from an original 101 km2 to 332 km2. This staking was completed following interpretation of the recently reported airborne geophysical survey that identified a 40km long magnetic anomaly that corresponds with iron formations that have previously been mapped and from drilling on the property (press release dated January 24, 2011).

Argex continues to review the results of the recently completed airborne geophysical survey and will announce its future plans for the property shortly.

A map that shows the extent of iron formations in the Labrador Trough as they continue in a southwesterly direction towards the Manicouagan Structure in proximity to the Mouchalagane property is available at www.argex.ca. The iron formations are of the Lake Superior type.

Maps of the airborne geophysics are now available at www.argex.ca.

The staking was completed by Consul-Teck Exploration Inc., of Val d'or, Québec.
