Temex Resources Corp. (TSX-V: TME, FWB: TQ1) announces that multiple new priority targets have been identified as a result of the ongoing and expanded surface exploration program on the Juby Joint Venture property which is a Joint Venture held with Goldeye Explorations Ltd. in which Temex holds a 60% interest and is the operator.
"The Shining Tree area is highly prospective as demonstrated by the heightened exploration activity in the immediate area. We are very pleased with the number of priority drill targets being generated on the Juby Joint Venture ground and are expediting our efforts to drill test these targets. Our intent is to discover new gold zones that will add to the gold resources already established on our 100% owned Juby Main Zone deposit where we are currently drilling," said Ian Campbell, President and CEO of Temex Resources Corp.
One of the main priorities of the current work program is focusing on the southern portion of the joint venture property, contiguous to the south and partially on the Juby Lease, in an area where historic work dating back to the 1930's recorded several gold occurrences in drilling and in trenches. The historic work on these occurrences, which parallel the Juby Main Zone gold deposit located 500 metres to the north, reported drill intersections and trench sampling including 2.23 g/t gold over 18.2 metres and 3.20 g/t over 12.0 metres. To date IP surveying over these areas has defined two subparallel chargeability anomalies of 600 metres in length that are coincident with the area of historic drilling.
Several other IP chargeability anomalies, coincident with gold-in-soil anomalies and/or gold in bedrock anomalies have been defined throughout the property. One of these, which is located in the north-central portion of the property near where Creso is exploring the Minto property, is a strong gold-in-soil anomaly that has been defined over an area of 300 metres by 100 metres with individual results from 53 ppb to 420 ppb gold. The anomalous area is coincident with a 1200 metre circular magnetic low extending east from the Minto deposit onto the property.
In the south-central part of the property but north of the Juby Lease, strong multi-station gold-in-soil anomalies with results ranging from 29 ppb to 226 ppb gold occur over a strike length of 300 metres. This target is also along strike 900 metres to the west-northwest from previous discoveries made by the partners highlighted by drill intercepts of 33.74 g/t gold over 0.94 metres, 2.33 g/t gold over 5.33 metres and 0.89 g/t gold over 29.85 metres all of which remain open.
Prospecting has also identified several new gold occurrences with anomalous values from grab samples generally ranging from 0.20 g/t to 1.65 g/t gold and some higher grade samples ranging from 2.12 g/t to 5.85 g/t and a single high grade sample of 30.61 g/t gold. Some of these new gold occurrences are within the gold-in-soil anomalous areas. Prospecting and additional IP geophysical surveying continues with analyses pending for a further 75 rock samples collected between late September and early October.
Juby Lease Property
Drilling is ongoing on the Juby Main Zone located on the Company's 100% owned Juby Lease which currently contains NI 43-101 compliant 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 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. A series of holes are testing the central portion of the deposit which is wide open at depth. The Juby Gold Project is located south of Timmins in the Shining Tree area of northeastern Ontario and consists of: the 100% owned Juby Lease; the Juby Joint Venture Property held at 60% Temex and 40% Goldeye Explorations Ltd. ("Goldeye"), which surrounds the Juby Lease and extends north to the Minto Property being explored by Creso Exploration Inc. ("Creso"); the Tyranite Property, on which Creso has earned a 75% interest, and the 100% owned Mosher Lake Property.
Creso Exploration Inc. recently notified Temex that it has earned a 75% interest in the Tyranite Property and a joint venture is currently being formed.
