SAMEX Mining Corp.: Final Payment Completed to Acquire Providencia Mine Concessions-Inca Project, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2009) - SAMEX Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SXG)(OTCBB:SMXMF) -

SAMEX has completed the final option payment (US$35,477) under the "Araya Option" to acquire the Providencia Mine concessions situated within the greater INCA project area. These concessions cover one of the stronger mineralized areas identified during phase I exploration at the INCA project including the Providencia copper breccia pipe, a swarm of sheeted veins, and other tourmalinized/silicified breccia bodies and pipes. With this acquisition and its other land holdings, SAMEX holds what it considers to be the most prospective and strategic concessions within the INCA project area.

Final option payments have not been made on three other options to acquire concessions at INCA (US$1,038,500 re Minera Porvenir Option; US$80,000 re Parra Option; and US$150,000 re Rojas Option). The Company has determined that, in light of economic and copper market conditions, exploration results to date on these concessions and other factors, these expenditures are not justified at this time.

Efforts to joint-venture or sell the INCA area copper project will continue as the Company maintains its focus on exploration at the Los Zorros Gold Property and other precious metal properties within the region.
