Temex Discovers Widespread Surface Gold Mineralization up to 8.26 g/t Gold on Juby JV Property Northeastern Ontario

TSX-V:TME; FWB:TQ1

TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2011 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSXV: TME), (FWB: TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") reports that prospecting has discovered several new surface gold zones on its Juby Joint Venture ("JV") Property located near Gowganda in northeastern Ontario. These new zones occur approximately 1.5 kilometres southwest of the Juby Main Zone and appear to represent an important parallel structural trend to the main Tyrrell Structural Zone upon which the majority of the major gold occurrences in the area are centered.

A program of B horizon soil sampling conducted in August delineated a strong gold-in-soil anomalous zone with individual samples returning values ranging from 28 ppb gold to 1,747 ppb gold (1.7 g/t gold).  The anomalous samples define a trend with a minimum strike length of 1.5 kilometres and width of 0.5 kilometres in an area that has received virtually no exploration to date. These are by far the strongest gold in soil anomalies detected to date on both the Juby and Juby JV properties.

"We are very pleased with the success of this grass roots exploration program with the addition of several new high priority targets for drill testing. The discovery of gold mineralization in this area to the south of the Juby Main Zone opens up new potential for our extensive land package," commented Ian Campbell, President and CEO of Temex.

Follow-up prospecting across the gold-in-soil anomalous trend has discovered several gold-in-bedrock occurrences over an area approximately 250 metres long by 50 metres wide with individual grab samples assaying 0.59 g/t gold up to 8.26 g/t gold. Significantly, the gold mineralization is hosted in highly altered feldspar porphyry and sedimentary rocks that exhibit iron carbonate alteration and minor amounts of pyrite similar to the Juby Main Zone. Although near the limits of a Spectral Induced Polarization survey conducted earlier in 2011, the anomalous gold in soil and bedrock zone occurs along the margin of a moderate chargeability and resistivity anomaly with an area of low chargeability and resistivity.

As field conditions permit, additional prospecting will be done to follow-up on the new gold zones prior to diamond drill testing.
