Ontex Resources Limited: 3,700 Metres Completed on Latest Brookbank Drill Program

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Ontex Resources Limited (TSX:ONT) is pleased to provide an update for the 2008 drill program on its 100% owned Brookbank Gold Deposit in the Beardmore-Geraldton area of Northern Ontario.

8,000 METRE DIAMOND DRILL PROGRAM ONGOING

Initial drilling completed thus far consists of 8 holes totaling 3,700 metres which all have intersected the main Brookbank Zone to between 200 and 550 metres vertically. The program was designed to both expand the known resource and upgrade reserve blocks from the "inferred" to "indicated" category. Samples from all eight holes have now been sent to the lab and assay results will be reported when all are available (expected within three weeks).

For the next phase of drilling the Company will focus its efforts on the Cherbourg property to the immediate west of the Brookbank Zone. The first hole, C-08-01 is aimed 50 m below DDH KN-4W-4 which intersected gold values of 16 gm/tn over 3 metres. A subsequent program will test the high grade Cherbourg South zone where surface sampling yielded an average of 15 gm Au/ton. Drilling will resume the first week in July following the Annual Meeting on June 30.

For purposes of NI 43-101, Armen Chilian P.Geo. is the Qualified Person who planned and will execute the exploration programs for Ontex. John P. Thompson P.Eng. is responsible for the current estimate of the resources as reported in the "Technical Report Brookbank Gold Deposit, Beardmore - Geraldton Area, Northern Ontario" dated April 28, 2006.
