Temex and East West detect airborne EM conductors south of Noront Double Eagle discoveries



    TSX Venture Exchange: TME, Frankfurt Exchange: TQ1

    TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture Exchange:
TME, Frankfurt: TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") announces that helicopter
borne VTEM electromagnetic and magnetic surveys have now been completed and
preliminary data has been received covering a 30 kilometre strike length on
its claims subject to an Option and Joint Venture Agreement with East West
Resource Corporation ("East West"), in the McFaulds Lake area.

    Highlights:

    
    -   Helicopter borne VTEM survey locates several discrete EM conductors

    -   Ground geophysical surveys set to commence

    -   Diamond drilling of priority targets being planned

    -   333 claim units held under an Option and Joint Venture Agreement with
        East West

    -   238 new claim units staked under 50:50 staking syndicate with East
        West
    

    The preliminary data reveals several discrete airborne EM conductors and
Temex and East West are currently reviewing this data in order to prioritize
up to 10 potential drill targets. Ground geophysical surveys will be conducted
where warranted and diamond drilling is planned to test the new targets. The
priority airborne targets to be tested resemble targets similar to the Noront
nickel-copper-platinum group element discoveries (Eagle One and Eagle Two)
however a number of targets also resemble volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS)
deposits similar to the discoveries near McFaulds Lake made since 2003.
    Temex also announces that in addition to the 333 claim unit property
subject to the terms of an Option and Joint Venture Agreement with East West
announced February 19, 2008, an additional 238 claim units were staked on a
syndicated 50:50 basis to extend coverage based on the results of the airborne
survey and to extend coverage on a number of other magnetic features. These
features are believed to represent geological environments favourable for the
formation of magmatic nickel-copper-platinum group element deposits.
    The claims, which are located in the Sachigo Greenstone Belt in the James
Bay Lowlands region of northern Ontario, are situated approximately 45
kilometres south and east of the high-grade Noront Eagle One and Eagle Two
discoveries. The program is being supervised by a management committee
comprised of personnel from Temex and East West.
