Orex Minerals Inc. (TSX.V: REX) is a Canadian-based junior mineral exploration company with an impressive portfolio of large gold, silver, and copper exploration projects on renowned mineral trends in Mexico (Coneto and Sandra Escobar Projects), and Canada (Jumping Josephine Gold Project). Each project has impressive merits of its own; packaged together, the chance of Orex making the next big resource discovery increases dramatically. The Company’s directors and management include industry professionals with a consistent track record of identifying and advancing successful mineral exploration projects.
Our Coneto Silver-Gold Project is adjacent to the village of Coneto de Comonfort, centrally positioned within the “Mexican Silver Trend”, approx. 100 km north of the city of Durango, Mexico. In February 2012, Orex signed an Association Agreement with Fresnillo PLC to explore the Coneto property managed by a joint technical committee. Fresnillo has recently completed another phase of diamond drilling, with the total to date at 33,398 metres in 93 holes on 12 targets.
Our Sandra Escobar Silver-Gold Project is located 40 km north of the town of Tepehuanes and 180 km north of the city of Durango, also in the “Mexican Silver Trend.” In September 2015, Orex entered into an Option Agreement with Canasil Resources Inc. to explore the Sandra Escobar property. The current exploration program is focused in the southeast part of the property to test near-surface, bulk tonnage silver targets. Orex is the project operator.
Our Jumping Josephine Gold Project is located 30 km west of Castlegar and 30 km north of the mining district of Rossland, in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. Structurally controlled quartz stockwork veining is hosted within altered quartz-monzonite.
