Cantex discovers 600 metre gossan at North Rackla project, Yukon

KELOWNA, BC, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Cantex Mine Development Corp. (CD : TSXV) ("Cantex" or the "Company") is pleased to report the discovery of base metal mineralization at its North Rackla project in the Yukon.

To date 127 rock samples collected during the summer field program have been analyzed.  Of these, twenty were collected by geologist Chad Ulansky from a newly discovered gossan zone which sub-outcrops for a distance of 600 metres with an apparent width of up to 20 metres.  The gossan zone is open at both ends.  Grab samples of sub-outcrop and down slope talus were assayed from along the 600 metre strike length and the results are as contained in the following table:

Sample Type Copper Lead Zinc Silver
    (%) (%) (%) (oz/t)
KAR0245 Talus 0.04 0.37 2.84 BDL
KAR0246 Talus 0.08 1.93 5.05 0.18
KAR0247 Talus 0.05 43.60 0.74 3.48
KAR0248 Subcrop 0.06 1.54 2.88 BDL
KAR0249 Subcrop 0.17 0.55 2.10 0.89

KAR0267 Talus 0.00 20.20 6.75 1.59

 *"BDL" is Below Detection Limits

In addition, gossanous float sample KAR0268 in the vicinity of the gossan zone described above (collected approximately 500 meters to the north east) was determined to contain 0.13% copper, 1.01% lead, 11.4% zinc and 0.56 ounces per ton silver.  It appears that this float is from a separate zone.

Cantex looks forward to following up these results when field conditions permit.
