Amerix Announces Drill Results From Nova Brasilia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 28, 2006) - Amerix Precious Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:APM)(FRANKFURT:NJG) today announced additional assay results from the 2006 exploration program at the Nova Brasilia prospect on its Vila Porto Rico (VPR) gold property in Para State, Brazil. The program, which was completed in October, comprised a total of 2,564.5 meters of diamond drilling in 15 holes on the Nova Brasilia shear zone at VPR.

The drill and assay results revealed that gold is associated with sulfide-rich zones that have formed along brittle fractures. Several high-grade gold-bearing sulfide zones were intersected, and these zones appear to be continuous for a long distance (0.9 kilometres). The association of gold with pyrite and chalcopyrite in brittle fracture zones makes the Nova Brasilia prospect highly favorable for prospecting by electromagnetic geophysical methods that are planned for early in 2007.

For previously reported results please see press release dated September 21, 2006. The assay results from the Nova Brasilia program which have been received to date are provided on the Corporation's website at www.amerixcorp.com/06_dec.pdf.

Highlights of the assays from the 15 holes at Nova Brasilia are as follows:
