Temex discovers new gold trend on Latchford Gold Project



    TSX Venture Exchange:TME, Frankfurt Exchange:TQ1

    TORONTO, April 7 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture:TME,
Frankfurt:TQ1) ("Temex") announces that it has discovered a new gold trend on
its Latchford Gold Project located in northeastern Ontario. This new gold in
bedrock trend is approximately 6 km north of where the project was initiated
in 2004 following the discovery of a block of rock containing a carbonate vein
with bonanza gold mineralization from which grab samples assayed in excess of
6,000 g/t gold.

    
    Project Highlights

    -   Initiated following discovery of boulder with carbonate veins and
        spectacular visible gold that assayed in excess of 6,000 g/t gold
    -   Abundant visible gold in carbonate veins in subcrop material and
        additional boulders proximal to the discovery boulder
    -   2008 prospecting program resulted in the discovery of a new gold
        trend in bedrock exposed by recent logging activities
    -   Grab samples up to 31.03 g/t gold, 15.36 g/t gold and 11.97 g/t gold
    

    At this early stage, the new gold trend is a corridor that is
approximately 1.4 km long by 300 metres wide and is defined by numerous random
bedrock grab samples with values ranging from 0.10 g/t gold to 31.03 g/t gold.
Significantly, the trend straddles the unconformable contact between Archean
and Proterozoic rock sequences similar to the setting of the original high
grade gold discovery. This is the geological setting of the Cobalt Silver
Mining Camp which produced in excess of 500 million ounces of silver from
carbonate-hosted bonanza silver veins just to the north of the Temex
discoveries.
    Random grab samples taken from Archean outcrops returned significant
values up to 15.36 g/t gold and 31.03 g/t gold and samples taken from a series
of rusty fractures cutting Proterozoic basal sediments interpreted to be very
near the unconformity with unexposed Archean basement rock returned values
ranging from 0.10 g/t to 5.52 g/t gold and 11.97 g/t gold. The new discovery
area was prospected in fall 2008 by Temex personnel immediately following
clear cutting operations by a forest products company which exposed a number
of new outcrops.
    An initial prospecting program also covered a property optioned by Temex
in December 2007, located 150 metres from the original extremely high grade
discovery site. This property was historically the subject of limited previous
exploration work focused primarily on base metal mineralization. However a
hole drilled in 1952 intersected a four-metre core length of silicified and
sheared tuffs from which a 1.83 metre interval assayed 44.57 g/t gold
(reported as 1.3 oz/t gold over 6 feet) and 0.89% nickel; the remainder of the
altered section was not analyzed. A second interval in pyrrhotite-mineralized
host rock assayed 6.86 g/t gold and 0.99% nickel over 1.52 metres (MNDM
assessment files). There is no way to verify this historical work.
    An initial drill program on the Company's Brett Property was conducted in
the area of the original discovery in late 2004. One of the holes intersected
carbonate veinlets containing anomalous gold and a multi-element anomaly
consistent with the geochemical anomalies in Cobalt-style mineralized systems.
Subsequent prospecting by Temex discovered additional gold-rich samples,
including a sample in the immediate area of the original discovery containing
abundant visible gold (news release October 11, 2006; photos on Temex
website).
    The 2008 prospecting program also returned several other significant
results requiring follow-up work: 1,060 g/t silver, 3.87% lead, 2.58% zinc in
a grab sample of altered metavolcanic rock; 1.88 g/t palladium, 0.58% nickel
0.30% copper, 0.11% cobalt, elevated gold in a grab sample of metavolcanic
rock with pyrite in a fault zone; and a grab sample with 7.19% molybdenum,
located respectively 1.3 km, 5.5 km and 6.7 km south of the original high
grade gold discovery site.
    The Company is planning a ground geophysical survey over the new gold
trend, followed by additional prospecting as soon as field conditions permit
in order to prioritize targets for a drill program.
