Mr. Charles Ross reports
Goldex Resources Corporation is pleased to announce that initial
fieldwork, consisting of geologic mapping and surface sampling, has been
completed and assay results received from its Arco property in Durango,
The bulk of the surface outcrop sampling was completed in June, during
the first work period. Since then, the mapping has progressed outward from the
central zone of mineralization to peripheral areas where only a few veins
remain exposed. To date, 354 samples from the project have been delivered to
the Inspectorate sample preparation lab in Durango. Plotting of sample points
and vein structures, as an overlay to the geology map is in progress. Initial
results show gold values of greater than 0.50 g/t tend to group along the vein
structures, suggesting "ore shoots" that may become drill targets.
Of 354 samples taken from outcrops during the summer, 41 returned values
greater than 1.0 g/t Au, 15 are greater than 2.0 g/t Au, and 2 samples are
greater than 5 g/t Au. Also of interest are 40 samples indicating more than
10 g/t Ag, 10 samples indicating more than 30 g/t Ag and 4 samples indicating
more than 40 g/t Ag.
Goldex's Arco project, situated in Mexico's precious metals belt,
consists of two contiguous concessions which total 3,383.15 hectares. In 2007,

Arco, produced approximately 139,000 oz gold, 993,000 oz silver, 8,000 tons
lead and 9,500 tons zinc.
