Temex Reports 31.64 g/t Gold over 8.30 Metres and 23.41 g/t Gold over 8.90 Metres, Whitney Project, Timmins, Ontario

TORONTO, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX-V: TME, FWB: TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") is pleased to announce additional high grade gold intersections at vertical depths of less than 70 metres from surface on the Upper Hallnor area of the Whitney Project located in Timmins, Ontario.  These results continue to expand the mineralization with very high grades over impressive widths clearly demonstrating the outstanding potential of the several near-surface targets being tested for early start-up production opportunities.

The Upper Hallnor Mine area represents a highly prospective high grade gold deposit, which the Company is evaluating for accelerated, near surface gold production.  The Hallnor Gold Mine was the highest grade past producing mine in the Timmins gold camp yielding 1.7 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 13.7 g/t gold.

Highlights (see Table 1 for downhole depths of significant intersections and Table 2 for details on drill hole locations)

  • TW13-285: 31.64 g/t gold over 8.30 metres including 49.38 g/t gold over 5.00 metres
  • TW13-288: 23.41 g/t gold over 8.90 metres including 43.67 g/t gold over 4.40 metres
  • TW13-265: 6.57 g/t gold over 7.30 metres including 27.13 g/t gold over 1.00 metre
  • TW13-287: 10.01 g/t gold over 5.20 metres including 21.57 g/t gold over 2.00 metres

The results reported today are from a series of holes drilled as part of an ongoing diamond drilling program which commenced in November 2012.  The program's objectives include targeted expansion of several near-surface, high grade gold targets that will allow for an accelerated production profile.

"We are extremely pleased with the results from this drilling campaign," commented Ian Campbell, President and CEO. "The results continue to bolster our confidence in the project.  With a strong balance sheet and a focused management team, we are well positioned to expeditiously advance this high grade gold project."

The drill results released today have successfully established excellent lateral and vertical continuity of four closely spaced, parallel gold-bearing structures including the VM, 155, 155 North, and 155 South veins that are approximately 10 to 50 metres north and south of the Hallnor Main Vein and have been identified over a combined strike length of 600 metres.

The high grade Hallnor Main Vein was historically mined over a 230 metre strike length to a depth of 240 metres across widths ranging between 2 to 16 metres, with an average grade of 13.7 g/t gold.  Hole TW13-285 extended the continuity of the Main Vein an additional 50 metres east of the high grade workings with an intersection of 19.77 g/t gold over 13.80 metres, including 31.64 g/t gold over 8.30 metres.  This intersection occurs at the bedrock/overburden interface approximately 17 metres below surface and is open to the east. No mining has occurred to the east between surface and 90 metres below this intersection. Other significant intersections on the Main Vein include hole TW13-269 which intersected 6.38 g/t gold over 4.10 metres and hole TW13-270, which intersected 53.91 g/t gold over 0.30 metres.

The 155 South Vein yielded several important results including hole TW13-271 which intersected 11.21 g/t gold over 1.50 metres within a broader interval grading 1.66 g/t gold over 14.50 metres and hole TW13-272 which intersected 19.97 g/t gold over 1.00 metre within a broader interval averaging 8.26 g/t over 2.60 metres.  The 155 South Vein dips near vertical across widths between 0.5 to 4.0 metres wide and, although drilling gaps remain in places at the zone perimeter, extends over a minimum 350 metre strike length to a depth of 60 metres from surface, and has never been mined.

Significant intersections from the 155 Vein include TW13-275 which returned 35.00 g/t gold over 0.90 metres within a broader interval averaging 8.43 g/t gold over 6.00 metres and hole TW13-278 which intersected 7.13 g/t gold over 9.50 metres including 25.30 g/t gold over 0.80 metres. The 155 Vein extends over a 270 metre strike length, dips near-vertical to an average 90 metre depth and has never been mined.

Outlook
The Company's immediate objective is to delineate high economic return, low capital, and low operating cost gold zones that generate quick cash flow as a first phase to life of mine plan.  Additionally, the program is set to begin to establish near surface NI 43-101 gold resources outside the current resource limits, extending a further 2 kilometres to the west along the mine trend encompassing the past producing Bonetal and Broulan Reef Mines.  All drilling will be incorporated into future resource estimate updates expected later this year.

Notes: Temex has implemented a quality control (QA/QC) program that includes insertion of blanks, commercial standards and duplicate core samples in order to ensure best practice in sampling and analysis.  Drill core samples are cut at Temex facilities using a diamond saw with the samples transported by Temex personnel in securely sealed bags to a bonded freighting company and from there directly to facilities operated by SGS Canada in Sudbury and Mississauga, Ontario for preparation and analysis.  Core samples are analyzed for gold using fire assay on a 30 gram split with an ICP finish.  Where initial results exceed 3 g/t gold, a second assay is completed on another 30 gram split using fire assay with a gravimetric finish.  As part of in-house QA/QC SGS Canada inserted certified gold standards, blanks and pulp duplicate samples. Random additional repeats are also analyzed as required. Results from all internal QC samples and repeats are reported.  Intervals reported are core lengths.  True widths are unknown at this time.
