Deep drilling continues to intersect high grade gold



    TORONTO, April 2 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture:TME,
Frankfurt:TQ1) ("Temex") announces that drilling on the Whitney Township
Property (the "Property") is continuing to intersect high grade gold values on
the Hallnor deep targets with all holes drilled to date having intersected
visible gold. The Property occurs within a 4 kilometre long, 10+ million ounce
mine trend and includes the former Broulan Reef and Hallnor Mines. The Hallnor
Mine was one of the highest grade gold mines in the 65 million ounce Timmins
Gold Camp with historic production totalling more than 1.65 million ounces of
gold at an average grade of 0.40 opt (13.71 g/t).
    Drilling has been testing for the down dip, down plunge extensions of the
lower Hallnor vein systems, specifically the 11 and 19 Vein systems. These two
main high grade vein systems were mined up to a former property boundary and
produced 450,000 tons grading 0.30 opt (10.29 g/t) gold and 650,000 tons
grading 0.42 opt (14.40 g/t) gold. Drilling to date has successfully
intersected the extensions of several vein structures and the results to date
of this program are listed in the attached table. Additional results will be
released as they become available.
    All holes drilled have intersected visible gold and significant results
obtained to date by Temex on the 19 Vein include 21.10 g/t gold over 6.55
metres and 21.02 g/t gold over 2.30 metres. Several other high grade veins
have been intersected within the broad 19 Vein alteration halo which will also
require follow up drilling including 20.73 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 33.40
g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 30.73 g/t gold over 0.95 metres and 5.11 g/t gold
over 1.50 metres. The 19 Vein carbonate alteration halo has been tested with
widely spaced holes over a strike length of 100 metres and over a vertical
distance of 230 metres. Incidental cuts on the 13 Vein zone to date have also
yielded up to 5.90 g/t gold over 9.10 metres including 86.18 g/t gold over
0.50 metres. The drilling of wedged holes from the pilot hole has progressed
vertically upward and the 11 Vein will also be targeted next in future
drilling.
    Meanwhile drilling is underway on a significant new target recently
identified in the Upper Hallnor area of the Mine block of the Property (news
release Mar 23, 2009). This new target became evident through ongoing
evaluation of the historical drill results in combination with current
drilling and is defined by a surface drill hole near the end of the previous
operator's tenure which encountered a broad zone containing multiple zones of
quartz veining, sulphides and gold mineralization including multiple
occurrences of visible gold.
    The Property is owned by Porcupine Gold Mines ("PGM", a joint venture
between Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada Ltd.) and Temex has the option to
earn a 60% interest. Temex expects to complete the $4.0 million expenditure
commitment in May 2009.

    Note: Temex has implemented a quality control (QA/QC) program which
includes the use of standards and blanks. Samples of split NQ core were
transported by Company personnel to Swastika Laboratories in Swastika, Ontario
in sealed bags. The remaining half of the core was kept as a permanent record
and stored at a secure facility in Timmins. The core was analyzed using a 30
gram standard fire assay method. Pulp metallic gold assaying was performed on
the larger veins. Intervals reported are core lengths.
