Prominex Intersects Massive Sulphides in T-3 Lense at Tulks Hill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2006) -

Mr. Lorne King reports:

Prominex Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PXR) announced today that diamond drilling on the T-3 and T-3a lenses at Tulks Hill has intersected massive sulphides in its first 3 holes using a recently commissioned helicopter-supported drill rig. These holes were set up with the objective to confirm drilling performed by Asarco in the 1980's.

Drill core is presently being analyzed, logged and sampled. Assay analyses of the mineralized sections will be performed by Eastern Analytical Limited, of Springdale Newfoundland.

"We were very pleased to be able to locate the drill rig in areas where previous operators had used pack sack drills to undertake drilling of this lense," commented Lorne King, Prominex's President and CEO.

Exploration on the Tulks Hill property is being conducted under the direction of Paul O'Brien, B.Sc., P.Eng., Prominex's Vice President of Exploration and Development and Project Geologist Wilson Jacobs, B.Sc., P.Geo., both of whom are "qualified persons" as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Jacobs is responsible for the preparation of technical information in this news release.

Drilling was conducted by Petro Drilling Company, an independent Canadian contractor with an office in Springdale, NL.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS:

Lorne B. King, President and CEO
