VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2009) - Geologix Explorations Inc. (the "Company") (TSX:GIX)(FRANKFURT:GF6)(BERLIN:GF6)(STUTTGART:GF6)(MUNICH:GF6) is pleased to announce that the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Geologix (U.S.) Inc., have entered into an agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with its joint venture partner Teck Co, LLC ("Teck"), a subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited, whereby Geologix will purchase from Teck all of its interest in the Silver Cloud Property (the "Property") mineral claims in Nevada. Subject to completion of the terms of the Agreement, Geologix will hold a 100% interest in the Property, subject to existing third party net smelter royalties ("NSR").

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company will issue to Teck 300,000 common shares of the Company and warrants to purchase a further 300,000 shares at $0.35 per share for a period of two years on closing of the purchase. If the Property advances to commencement of commercial production, the Company will pay Teck a onetime payment of US$1,000,000 in cash or common shares, at the Company's election. If before December 31, 2014 the Company sells, leases, transfers, or options the Property, Geologix will pay Teck 20% of the proceeds from such transaction.

The Silver Cloud gold-silver property is located in northern Nevada within the Northern Nevada Rift near the juncture with the Carlin Trend and adjacent to the Hollister low-sulfidation, bonanza epithermal gold deposit of Great Basin Gold (1,008,000 tonnes @ 40.0 g/t gold for 1,296,400 oz gold, Measured & Indicated). It is also located 20 kilometres southeast, along trend, of Newmont's Midas Mine.
