independent service provider Interested investors can access this

    "We are delighted to provide our investors with a new way to visualize
the large number of mineralized zones that we have on the Pinguino property,
and the mineralized drill intercepts within each of the major zones," said Ken
Hicks, President of Argentex. "We believe this is an excellent tool to
illustrate the impressive size and extent of mineralization at Pinguino,
allowing investors to see for themselves the potential that the company is
working diligently to develop."
    Using Google Earth display software (, the
"Drill Plan in Google Earth" feature allows a worldwide perspective, zooming
into a property-scale satellite image of the Pinguino property with the major
zones labeled. The "3D Model" is broken up into four different zones (see the
top of the right-hand column for the zone names). "Cross-sections" allows the
selection of vertical cross-sections, displaying the mineralized intercept as
well as published grades along the plane of the drilling in any location along
the strike of each zone. This data includes drill results from Phase 1
drilling through to the company's most recent results from the current,
ongoing drill program, which is the largest in Argentex's history. Argentex
intends to update the 3D models as new drill results are received, interpreted
and released to the public.
