MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / May 19, 2020 / Amex Exploration Inc. ('Amex or the Company') (TSXV:AMX)(FRA:MX0)(OTCQX:AMXEF) is very pleased to report multiple drill results from two of its rapidly developing gold zones on its 100% owned Perron property in northwestern Quebec, Canada (see Figure 1). A select list of results is provided in Table 1. The drill results include intersections from the Eastern Gold Zone (EGZ) and Grey Cat Zone (GCZ).

* Note that drill results are presented uncapped and lengths represent core lengths. True width is estimated to be 70 to 75% in Gratien Upper, 75 to 90% in Gratien Main, 45 to 75% in EGZ, and 70 to 75% in Grey Cat of the presented widths. NSR = No Significant Results

At the Eastern Gold Zone (Figure 2), one hole is being reported which was drilled as a wedge off of hole PE-20-144 which intersected 9.73 g/t Au over 9.90 m at a vertical depth of ~780 m (press release 2020-03-03). The wedge hole PE-20-144W1, located 30.00 m vertically above PE-20-144, returned a composite of 5.36 g/t Au over 19.65 m, with multiple high grade intervals including 97.62 g/t Au over 0.70 m and 14.79 g/t Au over 0.70 m (Figure 2). This is the widest intercept drilled to date on the High Grade Zone ('HGZ') at the EGZ, owing to the identification of third gold-bearing quartz vein further downhole in the system. This is the first time that a third vein has been identified in the HGZ and indicates a possible change in the nature and thickness of the mineralized zone at depth and further to the East in the system.

At Grey Cat (Figure 3), these results aim to define the near-surface portion (~250.00 metres vertical depth) of the gold zone at approximately 25 metres spacings in order to confirm continuity of mineralization. These results affirm the potential of open-pit mining methods on the Grey Cat and expand the Grey Cat along strike. Significant intercepts include:
- 4.20 g/t Au over 4.20 metres in hole PEG-20-154 at a vertical depth of ~160.00 metres
- 11.41 g/t Au over 2.00 metres in hole PEG-20-155 at a vertical depth of ~245.00 metres
- 1.18 g/t Au over 15.40 metres in hole PEG-20-156 at a vertical depth of ~140.00 metres
- 1.04 g/t Au over 18.00 metres in hole PEG-20-157 at a vertical depth of ~100.00 metres.

Dr. Jacques Trottier, Executive Chairman of Amex said, 'Our results indicate the continual expansion of the Eastern Gold Zone and Grey Cat Zone. We are particularly intrigued and excited by the wide intercept reported in hole PE-20-144W1 due to the identification of a third vein further down hole which is typically not seen in the HGZ. Orogenic gold deposits in greenstone belts, such as the Abitibi, often change in widths, metal zonation, and structural characteristics with depth. We are excited about the prospect of an increased width at the HGZ and look forward to continuing to test this hypothesis going forward as we drill deeper on the system. In addition, our Grey Cat Zone continues to deliver, with several broad near-surface intercepts reported that help to define a continuous lens of gold mineralization.'
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. 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 the 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.
Amex Exploration Inc. is a junior mining exploration company, the primary objective of which is to acquire, explore, and develop viable gold and base metal projects in the mining-friendly jurisdictions of Quebec and Ontario. Amex is focused on its 100% owned Perron gold project located 110 kilometers 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 Ontario.

This news release contains forward-looking statements. All statements, other than of historical facts, that address activities, events or developments that the Company believes, expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future including, without limitation, the planned exploration program on the HGZ and LGZ, the expected positive exploration results, the extension of the mineralized zones, the timing of the exploration results, the ability of the Company to continue with the exploration program, the availability of the required funds to continue with the exploration and the potential mineralization or potential mineral resources are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of the words 'will', 'should', 'continue', 'expect', 'anticipate', 'estimate', 'believe', 'intend', 'to earn', 'to have', 'plan' or 'project' or the negative of these words or other variations on these words or comparable terminology.
