Temex provides exploration update



    TSX Venture Exchange:TME, Frankfurt Exchange:TQ1

    TORONTO, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture:TME,
Frankfurt:TQ1) ("Temex") is pleased to provide an update on its exploration
activities. The Company is active on several projects including the Ring of
Fire, the Timmins and Latchford Gold Projects and the Huston Lake Uranium
Project. Drilling continues on the Whitney Township Gold Project located in
the Timmins gold camp and the Company is anticipating that drilling will
resume in the Ring of Fire in the near future. Crews are active in the field
on both the Latchford Gold Project and the Huston Lake Uranium Project in
preparation for drill programs to be conducted in the coming months. Commented
Ian Campbell, President and CEO, "Temex is funded to carry out our exploration
programs and we continue to have significant contributions from partners on
several of our properties."

    Webequie Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group Element Project

    The Company holds interests ranging from residual royalties to 100%
interest in 637 claims covering 375,400 acres in the area of the Noront
Resources Ltd. ("Noront") Eagle One nickel-copper-platinum-palladium
("Ni-Cu-PGE") deposit and the Spider Resources Inc./KWG Resources Inc.
copper-zinc ("Cu-Zn") discoveries in the McFaulds Lake area of northern
Ontario. The Webequie Project has potential for near term discoveries of
various types of mineralization specifically magmatic nickel-copper-platinum
group element deposits, volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") copper-zinc
deposits, mesothermal gold deposits, and diamondiferous kimberlites. In
August, the Company initiated diamond drilling on five of its numerous
properties in the McFaulds Lake area.

    -   One of claim groups immediately adjacent to the WSR Gold Inc. and
        Metalex Ventures Ltd. VMS discovery
    -   High priority geophysical targets slated for drill testing in the
        coming months.
    -   Three holes totalling 735 metres completed to date under the Option

        (TSXV:EWR) ("East West") and on which Noront (TSXV:NOT) is earning an
        interest.
    -   Eleven holes drilled totalling 2,024 metres to test airborne
        geophysical conductors.
    -   Conductors explained by the presence of sulphide mineralization,
        primarily pyrite and pyrrhotite, in altered volcanics, granites and
        gneisses.
    -   Program is being funded 100% by Noront with East West acting as field
        manager of program.

        consisting primarily of pyrrhotite and pyrite explaining the
        geophysical anomalies targeted with chalcopyrite (copper sulphide)
        noted in some cases.
    -   Significant mineralized zones have been sampled; results expected by
        shortly.
    -   Drilling suggests geological environments favourable for copper,
        nickel and zinc mineralization.

    -   Joint Venture between the Company 25%, MacDonald Mines Exploration
        Ltd. 25% (TSXV:BMK) ("MacDonald") and Canadian Orebodies Inc. 50%

        altered gabbro; significant zones sampled and assays pending.
    -   Drilling planned for Wellington on high priority target.

    Timmins Gold Project

    -   $2.0 million advanced deep drilling program underway on the Hallnor

    -   Program is targeting the undeveloped extensions of Lower Hallnor 11
        and 19 high grade vein systems which were previously mined up to a
        formerly existing property boundary; these two veins produced
        450,000 tons grading 0.30 opt gold and 650,000 tons grading 0.42 opt
        gold respectively.
    -   Ongoing exploration of targets potentially mineable by open pit
        mining methods with additional infill drilling planned to expand gold
        mineralization intersected in previous drill programs.

        areas.
    -   Anomalies occur in discrete zones ranging from 0.2 to 0.5 kilometres
        long to broad areas of higher radioactivity over several kilometres
        along the 45 kilometre strike length of the claims.
    -   Mineralogical work has confirmed presence of primary uranium mineral

    the estimates as NI 43-101 defined resources verified by a Qualified

    Temex considers the historical estimates and drill core intersections to
    be relevant based on the nature of the orebodies and the published 70-
    year historic production figures of the Miller Lake O'Brien Mine and the
    nature of other orebodies in the immediate area. Temex considers the
    historical estimates related to the tailing deposits to be reliable and
    relevant based on the methodology undertaken in the various work programs
    and the confirmation sampling conducted by Temex. Temex has reported
    assays in ounce per ton (opt) where they have been stated as such in the
    literature and grams per tonne where they are reported from Temex
    exploration programs.
