Prominex Resource Corp.: Tulks Hill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2008) - Prominex Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PXR) (Prominex) announces that it has completed 18 holes of a 22 diamond drill program announced on November 21, 2007 on the Tulks Hill property south of Buchans in central Newfoundland. The drilling program was terminated on December 17, 2007 due to weather conditions and will recommence when conditions improve in the spring.

The entire drilling program on the T3 lens, as proposed by Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates (RPA) to enable completion of a NI43-101 resource calculation, was, however, completed. RPA visited the site during this phase of drilling. Logging and assaying of core has now commenced and is expected to be completed within the next three weeks. Upon receipt of assay results, all information required by RPA to prepare a NI43-101 resource estimate on the T3 lens will be available. This information will also enable RPA to outline additional diamond drilling required to complete a resource estimate on the balance of the property.

Prominex has earned a 51% interest in the Tulks Hill property from Buchans River Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BUV). It holds operator status on the property and is pleased with progress made to date.
