Dorex Minerals Discovers Several Large High Magnetic Anomalies

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2008) - Dorex Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DOX) has received the results of the Geophysical Survey conducted by Quantec Geosciences Ltda Chile, consisting of a VLF Magnetic ground survey on the Company's 100% owned Carmelita property, located in the Atacama Desert, 55 kilometers northeast of La Serena, Chile. The survey consisted of 64.5 linear km, focusing on 3 main mineralized zones that returned significant results of high grade copper.

Strong magnetic field variations were delineated over the two large NE and SW surveyed areas, with variations over 2000 nT (nanoteslas) recorded.

There are several northerly trending magnetic high anomalies within the SW survey area exhibiting the greatest magnitudes. As copper mineralization assayed on the property occurs with iron oxides (hematite, magnetite and siderite) these magnetic high anomalies present targets for follow-up drill hole exploration.

In the SW survey area there are three large main magnetic anomalies. The lengths of these anomalies are 2,500 meters and are open to the north & south, 2,300 meters and are open to the north, and 1,250 meters open to the north.

In the NE survey area the range of magnetic field values is somewhat lesser than to the SW, in the order of 1500 nT, however, this may reflect the general higher elevation of this surveyed area. As in the SW several magnetic high anomalies have been delineated which present follow-up drill hole exploration targets for copper mineralization associated with iron oxides.

The anomalous magnetic features exhibit a northerly trend, however with a more pronounced NNW trend as compared with the SW survey area. The most prominent anomalies are, in length of 1,300 meters, 1,250 meters and 1,150 meters, all of which remain open to north.

In conclusion the magnetic survey has delineated several moderate to high amplitude anomalies exhibiting a strong northerly trend. As iron oxides and associated copper mineralization have been discovered along north trending structures on the property, these anomalies present very good follow-up drill hole exploration targets.

There is a potential for widespread porphyry or IOCG (Iron Ore Copper Gold) style mineralization as well as a smaller, higher grade structurally controlled shear zone hosted copper oxide mineralization.

Previous sampling and assaying on the Carmelita Property taken from clean outcroppings, surface showings and old workings (open pit) has exposed mineralization up to 10 meters below the surface. The copper content of this sampling ranged from 0.5 % to 4.84% to copper.
