Temex discovers new gold zone at Hallnor mine block, Timmins



    TSX Venture Exchange:TME, Frankfurt Exchange:TQ1

    TORONTO, May 14 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture:TME,
Frankfurt:TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") announces that the first hole of a
two hole, 1357 metre drill program recently completed on the new Q Target
(news release March 23, 2009) has discovered multiple gold-bearing zones in
the Upper Hallnor area of the Whitney Township Property ("the Property"),
Timmins gold camp. The holes were drilled approximately 25 and 75 metres
east-northeast of an historical hole containing quartz-carbonate veined zones
and gold mineralization.

    
    Highlights:
    -   Multiple gold-bearing zones intersected with several occurrences of
        visible gold
    -   Significant results include 68.70 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 16.65
        g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 14.97 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 29.21 g/t
        gold over 1.40 metres, 17.71 g/t gold over 2.90 metres including
        90.35 g/t gold over 0.50 metres
    -   Q Target wide open in all directions; substantial drilling required
    -   Located in close proximity to Upper Hallnor underground workings
    

    Drilling has intersected several sets of quartz veined zones typical of
the Hallnor Mine, containing minor sulphides and visible gold occurring within
15 of the sampled intervals. The first hole TW09-78 returned several
significant results including 68.70 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 16.65 g/t gold
over 0.50 metres, 14.97 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, 29.21 g/t gold over 1.40
metres and 17.71 g/t gold over 2.90 metres including 90.35 g/t gold over 0.50
metres. Significant results from TW09-78 are included in the attached table.
Assay results from the second hole are pending.
    Commented Ian Campbell, President and CEO, "We are very excited about the
Q Target mineralization as its discovery clearly indicates the previously
unrecognized resource potential of the Upper Hallnor area as well as the
exploration potential across the Property. When considered with what we have
already demonstrated in the Lower Hallnor and near surface areas in and around
the Broulan Reef Mine, we contend that the Whitney Property is one of the
leading high grade gold exploration projects in Canada."
    Both Temex holes were drilled deeper than the historical hole which ended
in mineralization with visible gold at 606.90 metres (16.83 g/t gold over 0.98
metres). As evident from the Company's 3D modelling the holes did not fully
test the down dip projection of the Upper Hallnor vein systems. The current
deeper drilling resulted in the discovery of additional veining with several
more occurrences of visible gold.
    The quartz veining and mineralization is hosted within a laterally
extensive quartzite horizon located approximately 150 metres south of the
former Hallnor mine horizon and workings and between the regionally extensive
Timiskaming unconformity and the Destor Porcupine Fault Zone. The structures
hosting the south dipping Upper Hallnor vein systems pass through the softer
turbiditic sediments below the Upper Hallnor Mine workings with little or no
veining but have reopened within the more brittle quartzite horizon. This
demonstrates the previously unrecognized potential of the Upper Hallnor
structures within this quartzite horizon and the gold mineralization
intersected is wide open in all directions. Considerable drilling is necessary
to expand and define the extent of these gold mineralized zones. Furthermore,
the Timiskaming quartzites extend for several kilometres along strike with
very little drill testing having been completed elsewhere on the Property.
    The Whitney Township Property occurs within a 4 kilometre long, 10+
million ounce mine trend and includes the Broulan Reef and Hallnor Mines, the
latter with historic production totaling more than 1.65 million ounces of gold
at an average grade of 0.40 opt (13.71 g/t) making it one of the highest grade
gold mines in the 65 million ounce Timmins Gold Camp. The Property is owned by
Porcupine Gold Mines ("PGM", a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc. and
Goldcorp Canada Ltd.). Temex has the option to earn a 60% interest and will
complete the required $4.0 million expenditure commitment shortly.

    Note: Temex has implemented a quality control (QA/QC) program which
includes the use of standards and blanks. Samples of split NQ core were
transported by Company personnel to Swastika Laboratories in Swastika, Ontario
in sealed bags. The remaining half of the core was kept as a permanent record
and stored at a secure facility in Timmins. The core was analyzed using a 30
gram standard fire assay method. Pulp metallic gold assaying was performed as
required. Intervals reported are core lengths. True widths are unknown at this
time.
