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.

completed to date; results for the pilot hole will be released in the
near future and assays from the other two completed holes are
- 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
- 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.
- Previous intersections include: 33.46 g/t gold over 5.40 metres and
2.29 g/t gold over 7.10 metres, 3.58 g/t gold over 6.60 metres and
30.13 g/t gold over 0.90 metres.

diamond drilling program, slated to be conducted in December.
- $750,000 program funded 100% by Nuinsco who are earning a 50%
interest; Temex operator for initial $500,000.
- 2,705 line-kilometre helicopter-borne magnetic and radiometric
geophysical survey completed in May 2008 identified several hotspots
within areas that previously appeared as large regional anomalous
- 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
uraninite and secondary uranium minerals uranophane and boltwoodite
from which random grab samples returned values ranging from 0.047% to

necessary to verify the classification of the resource, is not treating
the estimates as NI 43-101 defined resources verified by a Qualified
Person, and the historical estimates should not be relied upon. However,
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
