TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX-V: TME, FWB:
TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") announces that the largest drill
campaign ever has commenced on its 100%-owned Juby Gold Project
("Juby") located in Tyrrell Township in northeastern Ontario.
Juby is located 100 kilometres south of Timmins, Canada's largest gold
camp, and is situated along the southwestern extension of the Larder
Lake-Cadillac Fault Zone between AuRico Gold Inc.'s Young Davidson gold
mine and IAMGOLD Corporation's Cote Lake gold deposit.
The Juby Main Zone (news releases January 16 and February 28, 2012)
contains a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant resource
of 22.3 million tonnes at a grade of 1.30 g/t gold for 934,645 ounces
of gold in the Indicated category and 28.2 million tonnes at a grade of
1.00 g/t gold for 905,621 ounces of gold in the Inferred category, both
at a cut-off grade of 0.40 g/t gold and represents a target for large
tonnage open pit mining operations. This resource was defined from
surface along a strike length of 2,800 metres and is hosted in altered
Timiskaming sediments and felsic intrusive rocks.
"The recently completed major land consolidation which increases our
land position more than ten-fold opens up an aggressive and exciting
phase of exploration on the Juby Project," commented Karen Rees, Vice
President, Exploration. "Two rigs have recently begun drilling to
expand the Juby Main Zone gold deposit both at depth and along strike
to the west trending onto the Golden Lake Property where we earlier
this year extended gold mineralization typical of the Juby Main Zone a
further 750 metres where it remains open. We expect to add a third rig
in early 2013 to test some priority exploration targets further along
strike for both bulk tonnage and higher grade gold deposits typical of
the Kirkland Lake and Timmins gold camps."
Land Consolidation Successfully Completed
On November 23, 2012, the Company announced the completion of the
acquisition of a large block of claims from Goldeye Explorations
Limited ("Goldeye"). As a result, Temex increased its 100% ownership
in the area by over ten-fold from 1,343 acres to 14,423 acres. The
acquired landholdings are contiguous and complementary to the existing
Temex assets in Tyrrell Township and include a large block of claims in
which Goldeye owned a 100% interest, as well as Goldeye's 40% interest
in the claims comprising the Juby Joint Venture Property in which Temex
held a 60% interest.
Importantly, Temex has successfully consolidated promising exploration
properties in the immediate vicinity of the Company's Juby Main Zone
and at the same time extended Temex's 100% ownership of the important
Tyrrell Structural Zone ("TSZ"), host to all of the major gold
occurrences in the region, a further 5 kilometres along trend, doubling
Temex's controlled strike length to over 10 kilometres. The TSZ is a
major structural feature similar in many geological respects to the
Larder Lake- Cadillac and Destor-Porcupine major faults zones host to
the world class Kirkland Lake and Timmins gold camps in the region.
Notable gold zones acquired from Goldeye along the TSZ include the Big
Dome from which Goldeye has reported drill intersections including
217.50 g/t gold over 2.10 metres, 13.10 g/t gold over 3.00 metres and
80.70 g/t gold over 2.10 metres and Hydro Creek which includes drill
intersections of 5.89 g/t gold over 12.50 metres, 3.58 g/t gold over
20.20 metres and 4.28 g/t gold over 14.00 metres.
Big Dome and Hydro Creek are located 4 and 5 kilometres respectively
directly on strike along the TSZ west of the Juby Main Zone NI 43-101
The drill program has commenced with two rigs on the western portion of
the Juby Main Zone and the projected extension onto the Golden Lake
Property where drilling of 8 holes in spring intersected widespread
gold mineralization typical of the Juby Main Zone a further 750 metres
where it remains wide open. The objective of this program is to
increase the Juby Main Zone NI 43-101 gold resource and to test
priority exploration targets proximal to the resource.
