MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / April 26, 2021 / Amex Exploration Inc. ("Amex or the Company") (TSXV:AMX)(FRA:MX0)(OTCQX:AMXEF) is pleased to report a number of drill results focused on definition of the High Grade Zone ("HGZ") and the Denise Zone ("Denise") of the Eastern Gold Zone ("EGZ") of the Perron Gold Project, Quebec. See Figure 1 for a plan view of the geology of the EGZ and the mineralized zones.

Today's results significantly expand upon and confirm expectations of the large zones of broad near-surface gold mineralization and continuity of Denise as Amex works to drill off its maiden resource on the Perron Project. Highlights are detailed below, and a complete list of results is available in Table 1 and presented in Figures 2 and 3. In addition to the results detailed below, Amex is awaiting results on over 22,800 samples at two labs from holes targeting the HGZ, Denise, and Grey Cat Zone, as well as regional exploration drilling.

Highlights:

  • High Grade Zone
    • 7.10 g/t Au over 8.25 metres at a vertical depth of approximately 1,180 metres in hole PE-20-210W3.
    • 10.63 g/t Au over 9.65 metres at a vertical depth of approximately 560 metres in hole PE-21-245.
  • Denise Zone
    • 1.44 g/t Au over 88.00 metres at a vertical depth between approximately 150 and 210 metres in hole PE-21-237.
    • 1.57 g/t Au over 23.75 metres at a vertical depth between approximately 30 and 45 metres in hole PE-21-244.

Jacques Trottier, PhD Executive Chairman of Amex said, "As we continue to advance towards our property-wide maiden resource, definition and confirmation drilling continues to meet and exceed our expectation of a highly predictable and continuous gold system. At the High Grade Zone, we have defined gold mineralization from near surface to greater than 1,250 m depth and are seeing remarkable continuity of the high grade mineralization. At Denise, we continue to expand upon a broad zone of gold mineralization that is indicating open pit potential. Drilling on the project is going very well, with a number of drill rigs dedicated to expansion and definition drilling and also a very significant regional exploration program underway. Due to Covid-19 related delays, we are waiting on a large volume of assay samples but I am very excited to receive a number of these results owing to visual observations made in drill core."

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.

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.
