KELOWNA, BC, May 4 /CNW/ - Metalex Ventures Ltd. (TSXV : MTX) ("Metalex",
"The Company"), is pleased to announce that a third core hole is being drilled
into the exceptionally large 500 x 600 meter (+/- 24 hectare) kimberlite
discovery in Angola as reported in the news release of April 1, 2009. The
third vertical hole collared approximately 150 meters north of the second hole
intersected kimberlite at 12.2 meters depth and the drill is still in primary
kimberlite at 141.8 meters depth.
Metalex is hopeful that eroded parts of this pipe may be a source of the
abundant high quality alluvial diamonds being mined downstream from the
Company's concession on the Quango River, Angola. Core samples from this pipe
will be shipped to the CF Mineral Research Ltd. laboratory in Canada for
analysis as soon as possible.
