TSX-V:TME; FWB:TQ1

TORONTO, July 13 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX-V: TME, FWB: TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") provides an update on activities related to its precious metals portfolio in northeastern Ontario and on which exploration work is currently on-going on all four of the projects.

Timmins Gold Project - Whitney Township Property

    
     -  10,000 metre drill program to test high priority exploration targets
        in Upper and Lower Hallnor Mine areas, including high grade Q Zone
        discovery and numerous targets in and around the Broulan Reef Mine
        starting mid-July
     -  Joint Venture Agreement ("JVA") with Goldcorp signed (news release
        June 29, 2010). Temex holds 60% interest and Porcupine Gold Mines
        ("PGM", a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada
        Ltd. "Goldcorp") holds a 40% interest.
     -  Property has historic production of 2.3 million ounces of gold
        including 1.7 million ounces with an average grade of 0.40 ounces per
        ton gold from Hallnor Mine, the highest grade multi-million ounce
        producer in Canada's largest gold camp, Timmins.
    

Juby Gold Project - Shining Tree Area

    
     -  Juby Lease Property: 100% Temex owned with National Instrument 43-101
        ("NI 43-101") compliant gold resource. The Main Zone (news release
        June 15, 2010) contains an indicated resource of 614,000 ounces of
        gold grading 1.36 g/t gold at a cut-off grade of 0.50 g/t gold and an
        inferred resource of 602,000 ounces of gold grading 1.14 g/t gold at
        a cut-off grade of 0.50 g/t gold. The deposit remains open at depth
        and along strike and additional drilling is currently being planned
        which will further test the Main Zone for extensions as well as high
        priority exploration targets.
     -  Juby North JV Property: 60% Temex and 40% Goldeye Explorations
        Limited. The Juby JV Property surrounds the Juby Lease Property and
        extends to the north, within 600 metres of where Creso Exploration
        Inc. recently announced high grade drill results including 65.7
        metres grading 18.2 g/t gold. A field program of prospecting,
        geological mapping, soil geochemical sampling and induced
        polarization geophysical surveying was recently completed; additional
        work including drill target development is on-going and assay results
        are expected shortly. Previous results from drilling: 1.26 g/t gold
        over 61.60 metres including 2.47 g/t gold over 22.30 metres, 5.43 g/t
        gold over 3.65 metres, 2.33 g/t gold over 5.33 metres, 3.41 g/t gold
        over 2.94 metres and 15.0 g/t gold over 2.15 metres.
     -  Mosher Lake: 100% Temex. As a result of heightened interest in the
        area, Temex acquired by staking 7 claims covering 2,040 acres in the
        immediate area of the Juby Lease Property, bringing the Company's
        land holdings in the area to over 9,000 acres. Prospecting is in
        progress.
    

Gowganda Silver Project

    
     -  Program of orientation soil surveying initiated late 2009 over known
        vein systems using SGS proprietary MMI (Mobile Metal Ion) analysis
        recorded good correlation with known mineralization and also outlined
        new anomalies in area of property with no recorded work. 2010 work
        includes the collection of 237 MMI soil samples taken from areas of
        property with excellent potential for additional discoveries; results
        will be released when received.
    -   The property had historical production of 40.7 million ounces silver
        at a grade of 22 opt silver;
    -   Tailings deposits contain a non NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate
        of 1.827 million short tons grading 1.43 opt silver defined by over
        700 auger holes (see note 1 below).
    -   High grade drill intersections in unmined areas of the property on
        600 metre long target zone have returned several high grade
        intersections from up to eight vein sets which include 11,947 g/t
        silver over 3.5 ft to 4,560 g/t silver over 2.2 ft and 8,314 g/t over
        1.3 ft.
    

Latchford Gold Project

    
     -  Prospecting in 2009 discovered new occurrences of high grade gold in
        bedrock with individual assays including 112.29 g/t, 49.75 g/t,
        11.64 g/t, 9.14 g/t and 4.53 g/t gold. Program expanded the extent of
        the gold mineralized trend in flat lying Proterozoic sediments
        interpreted to be near the unconformity with underlying Archean
        rocks. Gold mineralization within the large areal extent is
        associated with anomalous copper, silver and iron oxide
        mineralization.
     -  Induced Polarization ("IP") geophysical survey using Titan 24 DCIP
        system conducted in late 2009 with inversion modeling recently
        completed. Field work just completed includes prospecting and
        collection of 197 MMI soil samples and results will be released when
        received.

Note 1. Estimates reported are historical and are not in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Deposits" ("NI 43-101"). Temex has not done the work 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 exploration programs.
