Temex Intersects 60.40 g/t Gold over 0.50 Metres Near Surface at Whitney Project, Timmins, Ontario

TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSXV: TME), (FWB: TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") reports assay results from the surface Diamond drilling campaign on the Whitney Project located in Timmins Ontario.  The drilling was conducted on the northwest part of the Upper Hallnor portion of the Whitney Property with the objective to expand the National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") resource announced on the Upper Hallnor September 5, 2012 (see below).

Highlights of the drill results are shown below and detailed in the following table.

Upper Hallnor Northwest Volcanic Horizon

  • TW12-234: 1.15 g/t gold over 20.00 metres; 1.83 g/t gold over 4.00 metres including 26.10 g/t gold over 0.50 metres
  • TW12-237: 2.38 g/t gold over 5.70 metres
  • TW12-238: 7.33 g/t gold over 5.75 metres including 60.40 g/t gold over 0.50 metres and 27.50 g/t gold over 0.35 metres

Upper Hallnor Bonetal Mine Area

  • TW12-239: 1.10 g/t gold over 8.00 metres including 11.30 g/t gold over 0.50 metres
  • TW12-240: 1.89 g/t gold over 23.20 metres including 6.50 g/t gold over 2.70 metres, and including 28.80 g/t gold over 0.40 metres
  • TW12-241: 4.15 g/t gold over 3.50 metres and 1.68 g/t gold over 5.20 metres
  • TW12-242: 4.30 g/t gold over 3.00 metres including 16.18 g/t gold over 0.70 metres
  • TW12-243: 1.67 g/t gold over 8.00 metres including 10.05 g/t gold over 0.50 metres

Mr. Ian Campbell, President and CEO of the Company stated, "We are very pleased that our exploration efforts continue to deliver excellent near-surface gold values that will add to the size of the Whitney resource and we are particularly interested in the new area of high grade visible gold mineralization discovered in hole TW12-238 that is within 50 metres of surface in an area where mineralization was previously unknown to occur in an area currently designated as waste within our current optimized pit shell on Upper Hallnor.  While we are focused on advancing Whitney toward pre-production in a timely manner, the results of TW12-238 clearly highlight the strong exploration characteristics of the Property and the potential to find gold mineralization in zones not previously recognized."

Five holes were drilled in the north hanging wall volcanic rocks and intersected gold mineralization typical of the former producing Hallnor Mine and five holes tested the former producing Bonetal Mine. Importantly, hole TW12-238 intersected a new high grade gold zone near the top of the hole grading 7.33 g/t gold over 5.75 metres which represents a new near-surface discovery in an area with no previous drilling and it is wide open at depth and along strike to the west. This area lies within the current optimized pit shell and is currently designated as waste, giving the opportunity to convert waste into potential gold resources. The Hallnor hanging wall volcanic rocks are typified by multi-ounce, narrow, sheared veins that expand in places into extension vein stockworks historically exploited by bulk mining methods. Significantly, most of the holes intersected gold mineralization within 100 metres of surface, and several of those intersections contain high grade visible gold.

Holes TW12-235, 238, 239, 240, 241, 242 and 243 intersected gold mineralization outside of the current NI 43-101 optimized pit resource shell and will be incorporated into future resource updates.  Holes TW12-234, 236, and 237 targeted inferred resources in the north volcanic hanging wall within the northern extremity of the resource pit shell.

Work Program and Outlook
The drill campaign began in November 2012 with 10 holes totaling 2,029 metres completed prior to the end of the year.  The 2013 program will continue to define near surface, high grade targets suitable for early start-up production opportunities and in some areas will upgrade inferred resources to the indicated category.  The overall objective will be to meet higher grade, lower tonnage, low capital, and low operating cost criteria with the potential to generate quick cash flow as a first phase to life of mine plan production.  Additional targets are anticipated to be generated as work continues on the on the Upper Hallnor, Bonetal, C Zone, Broulan Reef and Hugh Pam areas and incorporated into future resource estimates.

The Property is held under a joint venture under which Temex owns 60% and is operator and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. owns 40% ("Goldcorp") (as manager, and on behalf, of the Porcupine Gold Mines Joint Venture (a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp)); Temex is the operator of the joint venture.  The results of the resource announced in September 2012 are summarized below and are shown on a 100% basis.

Mineral Resource Upper Hallnor In-pit at 0.30 g/t Au cut-off grade (news release September 5, 2012)

  • Measured ("M"): 232,100 ounces contained in 2,964,000 tonnes at a grade of 2.44 g/t gold
  • Indicated ("I"): 544,000 ounces contained in 8,664,000 tonnes at a grade of 1.95 g/t gold
  • TOTAL M+I: 776,100 ounces Measured and Indicated at a grade of 2.07 g/t gold
  • Inferred: 231,900 ounces contained in 4,024,000 tonnes at a grade of 1.79 g/t gold

Notes: Temex implemented a quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure best practice in sampling and analysis. Drill core (NQ size) samples are cut at Temex facilities using a Diamond saw with one half of the cut core placed into securely sealed bags. The remaining half of the core is kept as a permanent record and stored at a secure facility in Timmins. SGS Canada personnel transport batches of samples from the Temex facility to the SGS facility in Cochrane, Ontario for preparation and analysis.  Core samples are analyzed for gold using a 30 gram fire assay with an ICO finish.  Where initial results exceed 3 g/t gold, a second assay is completed on another 30 gram split with a gravimetric finish.  Samples observed by Temex personnel to contain visible gold are assayed by screened metallics fire assay on a 500 gram split. Intervals reported are core lengths. True widths are unknown at this time.

Karen Rees, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration of Temex Resources Corp. is the designated qualified person responsible for the preparation of this news release.
