Vancouver, BC — January 22, 2015 – Corex Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV: CGE) is pleased to announce a corporate update on the company's Santana property in Sonora State, Mexico. The first milestone was a first tranche private placement provided by H Morgan & Company (please refer to NR-06-14, dated Sept 25th 2014). A second tranche will also be made as and when necessary by H Morgan & Company, as stated in the agreement, for a total of, $1,250,000 million (please refer to NR-04-14, dated June 23rd 2014). This first tranche will fund an exploration and development program, the second tranche is expected to fund start-up production.
An agreement covering the surface rights has been completed and permitting activities can now be started. While the Company may receive a mining permit within a six to nine month period the Company has not completed a mineral resource estimate on the property or established the economic or technical viability of the project by way of completion of a mining study.
The Santana property is located about two and a half hour drive northeast of the City of Obregon, accessible via blacktop road. Obregon has regular air service nonstop to Hermosillo and Guadalajara.
Extensive exploration drilling by Corex has identified several zones of mineralization. The focus of current activities will be in the Nicho North area. A number of surface samples have been taken around the collars of drill holes in that hill. The values found matched the assays in the underlying drill holes. Metallurgical testing is needed, and a leaching area selected that best suits the topographic and metallurgic conditions. A drilling program consisting of vertical percussion drill holes on a grid pattern is currently underway.
Samples from the first phase of drilling will be sent to a private laboratory in the State of Jalisco however, a locally-located assay and metallurgical lab will be set up as soon as possible.
Management of the Santana project will be done by Chris Babcock with assistance by Robert Mark Anthony. Both individuals have extensive experience managing mining projects in Mexico. Mr. Babcock has 24 years of experience in the mining industry, 17 years being in Mexico or on Mexican projects. Mr. Babcock was the Manager of Mexico for Alamos Gold during the early development of the Mulatos project. He was also involved in the development of the La Colorada Mine located 150km from the Santana property. His involvement in the early 1990's for Eldorado Gold included completing a bulk heap leach test and the design, construction and initial operations of the commercial heap leach facility. Mr. Babcock's experience in the development and operation of gold mines will greatly assist the Company in its efforts to develop the Santana project.
The work on the Corex property is being contracted to Mina's de Guachinango, a gold production company that Chester Millar is a non paid unofficial consultant to. Mr. Craig Schneider President & CEO of Corex stated, "Chester Millar, the founder of Glamis Gold, Eldorado Gold, Alamos Gold, and more recently Castle Gold (now Argonaut Gold) is an investment advisor to H Morgan & Company. As such, we are very pleased to have access to a person of Mr. Millar's experience and expertise involved with the operations of our Santana property en route to one day potentially being a production based asset."
