Merrex Gold Acquires Other 50% Interest in Jubilee Zinc Lead Project

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2010) - Gregory Isenor, P.Geo., President and CEO of Merrex Gold Inc. ("Merrex") (TSX VENTURE:MXI) announces Merrex has agreed to acquire the other 50% interest in the Jubilee Zinc Lead Project in Nova Scotia.

Purchase of Jubilee

Merrex has agreed to purchase a 50% interest in the Jubilee Zinc Lead Project and other Nova Scotia base-metal mineral claims from Frontline Gold Corp. ("Frontline") for $500,000 to be paid by the issuance of 1,000,000 common shares of Merrex at a deemed issue price of $0.50/share.

Merrex is related to Frontline by way of common directors and the transaction is subject to certain pre-conditions on behalf of Frontline including receipt of a satisfactory fairness opinion and shareholder approval. The transaction is also subject to TSX Venture Exchange on behalf of both parties. Frontline has engaged Stonecap Securities Inc. to provide a fairness opinion on the transaction.

Merrex already owns the other 50% interest in the Jubilee Zinc Lead project and other Nova Scotia base-metal mineral claims. Frontline has advised Merrex that it does not intend to finance further exploration at Jubilee and management believes that consolidating the Jubilee property ownership will best facilitate its further exploration or disposition.

Merrex is a Mali focused gold exploration company with experienced management, a solid exploration team, a prominent gold-producer as a partner and an expanding gold resource… a winning combination offering investors an extraordinary opportunity.
