Corex Drills New Discovery at Santana

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2010) - Corex Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CGE)(the "Company"), is pleased to announce that a step-out reverse circulation drill hole has discovered a significant new mineralized zone on Corex's 100% owned Santana property in Sonora State, Mexico. 

Discovery Hole at Ubaldo Zone:

  • S10-078R returned 54.9 m of 0.87 g/t Au, 21.8 g/t Ag, and 0.51% Cu including 21.1 m of 1.73 g/t Au, 28.7 g/t Ag, and 0.48% Cu that ended in mineralization.

Craig Schneider, President and CEO of Corex stated: "This new discovery at Santana lends further evidence to our theory of a large porphyry driving this mineralized system from depth. This discovery hole was collared 700 m away from our Benjamin Zone which also had significant intercepts of Au, Ag and Cu. This new zone coupled, with the adjacent oxide-sulphide gold bearing zones at Nicho & Nicho North, greatly expands the scope and scale of the resource potential at Santana."

Ubaldo Zone

The Ubaldo zone is located 700 meters southwest of the Nicho Zone and 700 meters southeast of the Benjamin Zone, which now expands our mineralized area to 3 x 2 km in total size. Drill-hole targeting was based on favorable alteration coupled with a large elongated chargeability high, some 500 meters in a northeast direction by 100 meters in a northwest direction at 150 m in depth. The core at the northeast end may orient perpendicular northwest following a fault. This Nicho Fault is also coincident with magnetic and resistivity lows. S10-078R hole ended in a mineralized feldspar porphyry dyke at 200 m below the surface and is open at depth and along strike.

As a result of this most recent successful hole a diamond drill rig has been specifically allocated to the Ubaldo Zone to drill off its size potential. This follow up program will commence in January 2011.

Table of Results: Ubaldo Zone

Hole # From (m
To(m ) Interval (m ) Grade (gpt )  
Au Ag   % Cu
S10-078R 195.1   249.9   54.9   0.87 21.8   0.51
Incl. 201.2   222.5   21.3   1.73 28.7   0.48
Incl. 237.7   246.9   9.2   0.7 46.9   1.19
-- Reported intervals must be at least 1.5 meters wide; drill hole intercepts are reported at a 0.2 g/t Au cutoff or a 0.4 g/t Au cutoff including up to 6.2 m and 3.1 m of internal waste. Corex utilizes a comprehensive QA/QC program consisting of blanks, drill rig sample duplicates and reference samples to insure best practices are followed and the data collected is of the highest quality. All samples were prepared to normal industry standards and assayed for gold by Fire assay with AA finish by Acme Industrial Company (ISO 9001:2008 registered quality system).

Drilling Update

Corex is completing the 2010 diamond drill program and is currently awaiting 2500 m of assays that has been sent to Acme Labs for processing. The 2011 drill program is being planned that will include 20,000 m of diamond drilling on the Nicho, Nicho North, Benjamin and Ubaldo Zones.
