Ontex Intersects Additional Gold Mineralization

UP TO 7.8 G/T OVER 2.0 METERS ON BROOKBANK GOLD DEPOSIT

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - Ontex Resources Limited (TSX:ONT) is pleased to announce recent drill results from the Brookbank Gold Deposit, located 180 kilometres northeast of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario.

During the period of July 13th, 2007 to July 28th, 2007, Ontex completed a diamond drilling campaign on the Brookbank Gold Deposit. A total of 7 holes, B-07-01 to B-07-6, including B-07-05.1, were located on geological targets, for a total of 1,208 linear meters. The drilling program was aimed at detailing open-pit potential and extending the main gold bearing structures along a possible ramp access route to the main zone.

All 6 holes intersected gold mineralization. Holes B-07-01 to -03 targeted the mineralization intersected in the 2006 drilling program located about 250 meters to the east of the main Brookbank zone. B-07-01 and -03 respectively returned assays of 4.7 g Au/t over 3.5 meters and 2.7 g Au/t over 3.6 meters within a mineralized envelope of 1.9 g Au/t over 11.3 meters.

Hole B-07-05 drilled into the Main Brookbank target area and intersected 7.8 g Au/t over 2.0 meters including 19.7 g Au/t over 0.5 meters and also intersected 1.7 g Au/t over 6.7 meters in the Hanging Wall Zone (HW). Holes B-07-04 and -06 were drilled to the east and west of the main zone of mineralization and still intersected 2.7 g Au/t over 2.0 meters and 1.3 g Au/t over 0.7 meters respectively. The mineralized zone remains open to depth and to the east. This zone requires further evaluation drilling.

The Brookbank Property is underlain by mixed metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks that are transected by an east-west trending zone of extensive faulting and hydrothermal alteration. The Brookbank Deposit gold mineralization extends over a strike length of about 800 meters and has been drill tested to a depth of about 600 meters. Metallurgical testing has shown that about 94% of the gold can be liberated by a simple Cyanide leach process.

At a cut-off of 3.0 g/t gold, the Brookbank Deposit contains an indicated and inferred resource estimate of 1.9 million tonnes grading 8.0 g/t and containing about 488,000 ounces of gold. (See NI 43-101 compliant technical report filed on Sedar.com and on Ontex web site). Over a strike length of about 6.5 km of the Brookbank structure, the property hosts a mineral inventory of 2.64 million tonnes grading 7.4 g Au/t containing 629,000 ounces of gold at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g Au/t. There is excellent potential to increase the resources on the property.

For purposes of NI 43-101, Armen Chilian P.Geo. was the Qualified Person who planned and executed the exploration program for Ontex on the Brookbank gold deposit. John P. Thompson P.Eng. is responsible for the estimate of the resources as reported in the "Technical Report Brookbank Gold Deposit, Beardmore - Geraldton Area, Northern Ontario" dated April28, 2006. The drill core was logged, split and half-core samples analyzed employing the appropriate gold fire assaying techniques at Accurassay Laboratories Ltd., Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Ontex Resources Ltd is a junior resource company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "ONT" engaged in gold exploration principally on its Brookbank Gold property in northern Ontario. Ontex has issued 69.6 million common shares.
