eResearch Issues Initiating Report on Amerix Precious Metals Corporation with Speculative Buy Rating and 12-Month Target Price of $0.45

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2007) - eResearch analysts, Stephen Mussart, B.A. (Economics), MBA and Bob Weir, B.Sc., B.Comm., CFA, have written an Initiating Report on Amerix Precious Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:APM). Amerix is a Toronto-based exploration company with two principal properties located in the Tapajos Gold District of Para State, Brazil: Vila Porto Rico and Limao.

In the report, the Analysts state, "The shares have been range-bound between $0.20 and $0.40 since the beginning of October 2006. Amerix has thin capitalization and, until it achieves some successful drilling results, this early-stage exploration company is likely to suffer from a lack of investor awareness. With an aggressive capex program for the next two years, this scenario could change quickly."

Highlights from the report are as follows:

- The Tapajos Gold District in Brazil has significant known gold resources but is relatively under-explored.

- June 2006 NI 43-101 report at Ouro Roxo on the Vila Porto Rico property shows an inferred resource of 1,336,000 tonnes at 5.8 g/t.

- Ouro Roxo was first explored by Rio Tinto from 1993-1997.

- Brazil has large gold resources and a mining-friendly jurisdiction.

- Private placement of $3.8 million in July 2007 provides ample funds to conduct the 2007 exploration campaign.

- Thin management depth, small market capitalization, and a lack of investor awareness are key challenges.
