About Oremex Resources

Oremex is a Canadian-based exploration company with a focus on the acquisition and development of mineral properties in Mexico. The Company's most advanced project Tejamen has an inferred mineral resource of 50.8 million ounces of silver in a total of 22.6 million tonnes grading a silver-equivalent of 69.8 grams per tonne (Wardrop Engineering Report NI 43-101 compliant April 2006). Snowden Mining Industry Consultants completed a Preliminary Assessment Study (NI 43-101 compliant October 2006) demonstrating that the project can support a 10,000 tonne per day open pit, heap leach mining operation. The Company continues with discussions with various federal and state government officials and the Ejido of Tejamen (governing authority for the village and surrounding lands) for surface access rights at the Tejamen Property.

National Instrument 43-101 requires the following statement: that the preliminary assessment is preliminary in nature, that it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary assessment will be realized.
