TORONTO, June 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSXV: TME) (FWB:
TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") announces that a field exploration
program is underway on the Juby Gold Project. The Project is located in
Tyrrell Township in northeastern Ontario, 100 kilometres south of
Timmins, Canada's largest gold camp, and is situated along the
southwestern extension of the Larder Lake - Cadillac Fault Zone between
AuRico's Young Davidson deposit and Trelawney's Cote Lake deposit.
The surface program is focusing on the Juby Joint Venture Property
("Juby JV") and Golden Lake Property ("Golden Lake") both of which are
contiguous to the 100% owned Juby Lease Property ("Juby Lease") host to
the Juby Main Zone. Temex owns a 60% interest in the Juby JV and has
the option to earn a 100% interest in Golden Lake (news release January
The Juby Main Zone contains a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101")
compliant gold resource (news releases January 16 and February 28,
2012) of 22.3 million tonnes at a grade of 1.30 g/t gold for 934,645
ounces of gold in the Indicated category and 28.2 million tonnes at a
grade of 1.00 g/t gold for 905,621 ounces of gold in the Inferred
category, both at a cut-off grade of 0.40 g/t gold.
The program will consist of geological mapping, prospecting, soil
sampling and geophysics and will follow-up on several new gold zones
discovered late in 2011 (news release November 24, 2011) on the Juby JV
as well as other priority targets. The new gold zones were discovered
by soil sampling and prospecting and occur 1.5 kilometres southwest of
the Juby Main Zone. These as well as the other priority targets
represent potential satellite gold deposits proximal to the Juby Main
Soil sampling returned values ranging from 28 ppb gold to 1,747 ppb gold
(1.7 g/t gold) defining an open ended trend with a minimum strike
length of 1.5 kilometres and width of 0.5 kilometres in an area of
virtually no previous exploration. These are the strongest gold in
soil anomalies detected to date on the Juby Gold Project.
Limited follow-up prospecting discovered several gold-in-bedrock
occurrences within this trend 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 by rock sequences typical of the Juby Main Zone including highly
altered feldspar porphyry and sedimentary rocks that exhibit iron
carbonate alteration and minor amounts of pyrite.
On Golden Lake, a program of soil sampling, prospecting and geological
mapping was initiated in late May. Golden Lake is contiguous along
strike to the west of Juby Main Zone providing Temex with immediate
opportunity to expand the Main Zone to the west and a program of 8
holes totaling 3,255 metres was recently completed with analytical
