SAMEX Mining Corp.: Drilling Update-Inca Project, Chile

ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2007) - In July 2007 SAMEX (TSX VENTURE:SXG)(OTCBB:SMXMF) commenced a 10,000 meter drill program at its INCA project near Inca de Oro, Chile designed to test copper-gold-molybdenum-silver targets identified from historic small-scale mine workings, surface geologic mapping of mineralized/altered zones and interpretation of IP geophysical surveys. Drilling has progressed well, resulting in the completion to date of 27 holes totaling approximately 8,000 meters of core drilling. The remaining 2,000 meters of drilling is expected to take approximately another month to complete, followed by core logging, sampling, assaying, evaluation and interpretation. The drill program is being conducted by geologist Rob Kell, the Company's Vice President of Exploration, a "qualified person" pursuant to Canadian Securities National Instrument 43-101.

SAMEX exploration staff is steadily advancing with the detailed process of core logging, splitting, sampling and assaying the drill core. News updates describing the exploration program results and further technical details concerning the INCA project will be released upon completion of detailed review, evaluation, and interpretation of the compiled information.

Although the INCA property contains a number of historic small-scale mine workings, the property is without a known body of commercial ore and SAMEX activities to date are exploratory in nature. Readers are reminded that until adequate drilling results have been obtained, reviewed and properly interpreted by qualified personnel, any conclusions as to the nature and extent of mineralization at INCA must be considered speculative in nature.
