VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2012) - NGEx Resources Inc. (News - Market indicators) ("NGEx" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has started at the Los Helados copper-gold porphyry deposit located in Region III of Chile. Six Diamond drill rigs are currently working at Los Helados with an additional rig scheduled to be added in the next few weeks. Approximately 28,000 meters of drilling are planned for Los Helados. An additional four drill rigs have been contracted for the planned programs at the nearby Josemaria and Filo del Sol projects and drilling at those projects is expected to start in early January. Drilling is expected to continue through the Southern Hemisphere summer until at least April, 2013.

Los Helados has a previously announced Mineral Resource at a base case 0.30% copper equivalent* cutoff as follows:

  • 1,114 million tonnes at a grade of 0.42% copper and 0.19 g/t gold for a copper equivalent grade of 0.55% (10.34 billion pounds of copper and 6.65 million ounces of gold) in the Indicated Resource category; and,
  • 1,015 million tonnes at a grade of 0.38% copper and 0.14 g/t gold for a copper equivalent grade of 0.47% (8.41 billion pounds of copper and 4.70 million ounces of gold) in the Inferred Resource category.

* CuEq - Copper Equivalent is calculated using US$3.00/lb copper and US$ 1,400/oz gold, with no provision for metallurgical recoveries. Silver is not included in the CuEq. The formula used is CuEq% = Cu% + 0.6806*Au (g/t). Small discrepancies may exist due to rounding errors.

Please refer to the news release dated October 15, 2012 for additional details on the resource. The current resource at Los Helados is open in several directions including at depth.

The planned Los Helados drill program has three main components:

  • Infill drilling to try to convert as much as possible of the current Inferred Resource to Indicated;
  • Deepening of early exploration drill holes that bottomed in mineralization due to the limited depth capacity of drills used in the first few years of exploration. A number of early holes in the core of the resource bottomed in strong mineralization at around 700-750 meters depth. More recent drill holes suggest that mineralization extends to at least 1,100 meters depth.
  • Step-out drilling to test possible extensions of the current resource. Surface alteration extends well beyond the current resource boundary and several holes on the edge of the current drill pattern are strongly mineralized (please see attached map).

The planned drill program at Josemaria will focus on following up the previously announced intercepts of high grade, supergene-enriched copper mineralization intersected on the northern boundary of the current resource. The current plan is to step out in approximately 100 meter intervals from JMDH 49 which intersected 172 meters of 1.33% copper and 0.36 g/t gold and JMDH 50 which intersected 182 meters of 1.06% copper and 0.31 g/t gold. An updated resource estimate which will include the 19,220 meters of infill drilling completed earlier this year, is expected to be completed before the end of this year.

Drilling at Filo del Sol will focus on following up and better defining the zone of high grade copper and silver mineralization intersected by FSDH02 (36.0 meters of 0.53% Cu, 0.38 g/t Au, and 393.7 g/t Ag) and; FSDH-03 (97.6 meters of 1.45% Cu, 0.27 g/t Au, and 16.3 g/t Ag; including 24 meters of 3.41% Cu, 0.29 g/t Au, and 9.3 g/t Ag).

Wojtek Wodzicki, President and CEO of the Company, commented, "After a very successful exploration season last year that culminated in an impressive maiden resource at Los Helados, we feel that we have excellent additional exploration potential at all three projects. We have an aggressive drill program planned to test that potential over the next six months."

Los Helados is one of several large copper-gold (silver) systems including the Company's Josemaria and Filo del Sol projects, located on a contiguous land package that the Company holds in Chile's Region III and adjacent San Juan Province, Argentina. Los Helados and Filo del Sol are part of a joint venture in which the Company holds 60% and Pan Pacific Copper Co., Ltd. holds 40%. Josemaria is part of a joint venture in which the Company holds 60% and Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) owns 40%.
