MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2021 / Amex Exploration Inc. ("Amex or the Company") (TSXV:AMX)(FRA:MX0)(OTCQX:AMXEF) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new high-grade gold structure by drilling an intersection returning 31.87 g/t Au over 5.10 metres on a new target area on its flagship Perron property (Table 1). The drill intersection is located approximately 650 metres north-west of the High Grade Zone (HGZ) and 500 metres north-east of the Grey Cat Zone (GCZ) that represents a new gold-bearing area on the property, as shown in Figures 1 and 2.

Jacques Trottier, PhD Executive Chairman of Amex said, "This new high-grade gold area is a game changer for the Perron project. This discovery demonstrates the tremendous upside of the Perron Property as it lies in an area that we had interpreted as being highly perspective but till now had remained untested. There are many more such targets on the Perron property."

Trottier continued, "This discovery also clearly shows that not only are the main structural contacts of the Beaupré Rhyolite Bloc (BRB) (namely the Normetal Fault to the North and the Perron Fault to the South), gold mineralized structures, but also many of the other major structural features located inside the BRB may also be gold bearing. That by itself is major milestone and has very positive implications for the Perron Project."

The gold mineralization encountered in diamond drillhole PEX-21-041 is associated with quartz veining, quartz-carbonate breccias, silica flooding and strong chlorite-carbonates-biotite alterations, as shown in figure 3. Occurrence of sphalerite, pyrite and traces of chalcopyrite are observed together with a significant amounts of visible native gold grains within the gold-bearing structures. The veining and silicified intervals shows several changes in core axes indicating that the area is possibly folded. As for the HGZ and the GCZ, this new gold interval intersected in hole PEX-21-041 is located at the margin of an enclosed mafic body hosted in the Beaupré rhyolite. The orientation of the intersected gold bearing structures are unknown as there is only a single pierce point.

Hole PEX-21-041 was drilled to test perturbed east-west magnetic lineament that was expected to be a demagnetized mafic intrusive inside the Beaupré Block (Figure 2). Amex consulting geologists are planning an aggressive follow-up drilling program around PEX-21-041 to search for the extension and to better understand the geometry of this new mineralized gold structure.

As a reminder Amex is currently drilling a fully funded 300,000 m drill program with 10 drill rigs in operation at the Perron Property, with a focus on the Eastern Gold Zone, comprising of the High Grade Zone and the Denise Zone. Of these 10 rigs two drill rigs are now assigned to exploration follow up of this new discovery target.

Qualified Person

Maxime Bouchard P.Geo. M.Sc.A., (OGQ 1752) and Jérôme Augustin P.Geo. Ph.D., (OGQ 2134), Independent Qualified Persons as defined by Canadian NI 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 Maxime Bouchard and Jérôme Augustin. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration. The quality assurance and quality control protocol 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 3 ppm Au are reanalyzed by fire assay with finish by gravimetry by Laboratoire Expert Inc, 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% less than 2 mm prior to pulverization, in order to homogenize samples which may contain coarse gold. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration.

The Qualified Persons have not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property, particularly in regards to historical drill results. However, the Qualified Persons believe that drilling and analytical results were completed to industry standard practices. The information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Property but may not be representative of expected results.

About Amex

Amex Exploration Inc. is a junior mining exploration company, the primary objective of which is to acquire, explore, and develop viable gold projects in the mining-friendly jurisdiction of Quebec. Amex is focused on its 100% owned Perron gold project located 110 kilometres north of Rouyn Noranda, Quebec, consisting of 116 contiguous claims covering 4,518 hectares. A number of significant gold discoveries have been made at Perron, including the Eastern Gold Zone, the Gratien Gold Zone, the Grey Cat Zone, and the Central Polymetallic Zone. High-grade gold has been identified in each of the zones. A significant portion of the project remains underexplored. In addition to the Perron project, the company holds a portfolio of three other properties focused on gold and base metals in the Abitibi region of Quebec and else where in the province.
