Amex Exploration drills 6.9 m of 43.74 g/t Au at Perron

2021-10-13 06:08 ET - News Release

Dr. Jacques Trottier reports

AMEX DRILLS HIGH GRADE GOLD FROM HGZ ZONE OF PERRON INCLUDING UP TO 43.74 G/T GOLD OVER 6.90 METRES IN SHALLOW HOLE AND 28.64 G/T GOLD OVER 5.00 METRES AT DEPTH

Amex Exploration Inc. has released results from a total of 26 drill holes focused on expansion and definition drilling of the high-grade zone on the Perron project.

Today's results are focused on on-strike expansion as well as definition drilling of the high-grade zone as the company works toward its maiden resource on the Perron project. A complete list of results is available in the associated tables. In addition to the results detailed, Amex is awaiting results on over 14,200 samples at three labs from holes targeting the HGZ, Denise, QF zone and Grey Cat zone, as well as regional exploration drilling.

Jacques Trottier, PhD, executive chairman of Amex Exploration, commented: "I am very excited with today's results for several reasons. Firstly, the highest metal factor hole in this release, PE-21-409 returning 43.74 g/t Au over 6.90 m, comes from an area of the shallower HGZ that had previously thought to be lower grade as shown in [an image on the company's website]. Three additional intercepts, PE-21-418, PE-21-399 and PE-383W1, also confirm the high-grade potential in this lower grade area that should add significant ounces to the eventual resource estimate. Secondly, our drilling at depth continues to reaffirm our interpretation of strong continuity and a larger envelope of greater than 50 metal factor mineralization. Amex has a number of drill holes pending from the high-grade zone as well as across the project and we look forward to receiving the outstanding results."

Qualified person

Maxime Bouchard, PGeo, MScA (OGQ 1752), and Jerome Augustin, PGeo, PhD (OGQ 2134), independent qualified persons as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101 standards, have reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release. The drilling campaign and the quality control program have been planned and supervised by Mr. Bouchard and Dr. Augustin. The quality assurance and quality control protocols include insertion of blank or standard every 10 samples on average, in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate and standard samples accredited by Laboratoire Expert during the analytical process. Gold values are estimated by fire assay with finish by atomic absorption and values over three parts per million Au are reanalyzed by fire assay with finish by gravimetry by Laboratoire Expert, Rouyn-Noranda. Samples containing visible gold mineralization are analyzed by metallic sieve. For additional quality assurance and quality control, all samples were crushed to 90 per cent less than two millimetres prior to pulverization, in order to homogenize samples that may contain coarse gold. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration.
