Ontex Resources Controls Dominant 629,900 Oz Gold Deposit in Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Belt

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2007) - Ontex Resources Limited (TSX:ONT), in response to exceptional land consolidation and drilling activity taking place within the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Camp, as well as, significant interest from potential suitors, is pleased to provide the following update with respect to it's 100% owned Brookbank property.


Despite the fact that numerous junior resource companies have significantly increased the staking and acquisition of land around the Company's Brookbank property, the Brookbank Gold Deposit remains one of the largest properties in the vicinity, with 688 claims covering a strike length of 35 kilometers and spanning 5 townships.

Mineralization at Brookbank extends over a strike length of about 800 meters and has been drill tested to a depth of about 600 meters. Metallurgical testing has shown that about 94% of the gold can be liberated by a simple Cyanide leach process.


The Company's Brookbank Gold Deposit is supported by an NI 43-101 compliant report, with an indicated and inferred mineral resource of 2.6 million tonnes grading 7.4 g Au/t containing 629,900 Oz Au at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g Au/t. It is the only project in the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Belt with an NI 43-101 compliant technical report. This technical report does not include results from the Company's two recent successful drilling programs. The NI 43-101 Technical Report can be viewed at:


As a result, several junior resource companies have recently staked claims contiguous to Brookbank to the North, South and West, including but not limited to Kodiak Exploration and Alto Ventures. Management is pleased with the recent activity in and around the Brookbank property, as it confirms the quality of the company's deposit.


Following the successful outcome of the summer 2007 diamond drill program, in which all 6 holes intersected gold mineralization, the Company is in the process of planning an additional drill program designed to further enhance the open pit potential on Brookbank. Management plans to increase the current resource estimate with continued drilling that will explore the similar alteration halo in the Cherbourg property along strike to the immediate west.

"With all the recent developments in the Beardmore-Geraldton region, I believe the Company's prospects going forward are positive and that we have an exciting story to tell. More than just lip service, this belief is proven by the interest other Companies have shown in and around our Brookbank property." stated Gary Conn, President and CEO of Ontex Resources Ltd.


As previously announced, several junior and major mining companies have shown meaningful interest in a possible joint venture on the Brookbank Gold Deposit. At this time the Company is reviewing several proposals and is engaged in ongoing discussions.
