Nuinsco and Temex Complete Option and Joint Venture Agreement

Exploration of Marijane Lake and Huston Lake uranium properties has begun

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Nuinsco Resources Limited (TSX:NWI) ( and its partner Temex Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TME)(FRANKFURT:TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") (collectively "the Companies") announce they have completed final execution of the Option and Joint Venture Agreement and that the first phase of exploration work has begun. The Agreement grants Nuinsco the option to acquire a 50% interest in the Marijane Lake and Huston Lake Uranium Properties (the "Claims"), by expending a total of $750,000 over a two year period and by making certain cash payments and share issuances to Temex (news release May 15, 2008). The properties are contiguous and located approximately 70 km northwest of Kenora, Ontario and 75 km east of Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba.


- Nuinsco and Temex execute Option and Joint Venture Agreement to explore uranium properties

- 2,705 line-km helicopter-borne radiometric and magnetic geophysical survey completed; numerous high quality anomalies detected

- Secondary uranium minerals uranophane and boltwoodite confirmed by X-ray and electron microprobe analyses from 2007 prospecting samples from which anomalous values ranged from 0.047% to 0.130% U3O8

- Ground follow-up of airborne anomalies this summer with diamond drilling of priority targets planned for fall 2008

Preliminary data have been received from a 2,705 line-km helicopter-borne radiometric and magnetic geophysical survey flown in May by Geo Data Solutions Inc. The gamma radiation spectrometer collected total counts for all radioactive sources as well as separate counts for uranium, potassium, and thorium. The survey was flown at 100 metre-line spacing and was designed to provide detailed resolution over the claim blocks which were staked to cover several prominent equivalent uranium radiometric anomalies apparent on regional government sponsored surveys (1977) flown at 800 metre-line spacings or greater. Despite the fact that these anomalies were the largest and strongest in the region and that most of the other radiometric anomalies in the region have associated uranium mineralization, there is no record of previous uranium exploration on the Claims subsequent to the government survey.

The current airborne survey data received for the uranium counts have provided significant resolution as compared with the previous regional government data. Not only has the detailed survey provided greater definition to focus the 2008 prospecting program, it has identified new hotspots within areas that previously appeared as regional moderately anomalous areas. The anomalies apparent on the new survey occur in discrete zones ranging from 0.2 to 0.5 km long, to broad areas of higher radioactivity over several kms along the 45 km strike length of the Claims. Once the final survey data have been received and evaluated, the Companies will be implementing a robust ground follow-up program to field check the anomalies and prioritize targets for a fall diamond drill program.

Recent mineralogical work conducted under the direction of Dr. Richard Taylor of Carleton University in Ottawa, has confirmed using X-ray diffractometry and electron microprobe analysis, that samples collected in 2007 contain secondary uranium minerals uranophane and boltwoodite, both of which are found in abundance at the Rossing uranium deposit in Namibia. These samples were collected while prospecting for the source of some of the anomalies detected by the government airborne surveys. Outcrops exhibited powdery yellow staining, from which random grab samples returned values ranging from 0.047% to 0.130% U3O8.

Nuinsco's President, Paul Jones stated: "Nuinsco is very pleased to have added such a prospective uranium project to its portfolio; the rapid rate at which the work program is being advanced fits well with the Company's overall strategy of aggressive exploration. The large scale of the property and the initial very encouraging results obtained from the airborne radiometric survey provide enormous scope for ongoing work that will begin very shortly."

Ian Campbell, Temex's President and CEO, added: "We welcome Nuinsco as our partner in the exploration of this exciting early stage prospect and we are very encouraged with the results achieved thus far and look forward to advancing the project to the next stage."

Paul Jones, President, acts as Nuinsco's qualified person for all projects, and has reviewed this news release; Karen Rees, P. Geo., General Manager, is Temex's designated qualified person responsible for the preparation of this news release.
