Solex Confirms New Uranium Mineralization on Its 100% Owned Macusani South Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - Solex Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SOX) ("Solex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the 2007 surface exploration program on its 100% owned Macusani South property has identified widespread surface uranium mineralization.

The Macusani South project (4,700 hectares) is located in the Macusani Uranium District of Southern Peru and is both contiguous with and geologically analogous to the Company's 50% owned Macusani East property which underwent a 24,000-metre drill program in 2007.

"These results have validated the prospectivity of our 100% owned Macusani South property and provide an important step in realizing the value of our strategic land position in the emerging Macusani Uranium District," stated Jonathan Challis, President of Solex. "We look forward to unlocking further value with an aggressive exploration program planned for both our 100% and 50% owned Macusani properties in 2008."

The 2007 Macusani South Phase 1 exploration program focused on geological mapping, geochemical sampling (131 rock chip and 319 trench samples, which have been submitted for assay) and hand held scintillometre prospecting. As a result of this work, a number of surface anomalies have been identified with visible uranium (predominantly autunite and torbernite) and scintillometre readings in excess of 30,000 counts per second. The uranium mineralization occurs as fracture coatings and disseminations within the Quenamari volcanic host rock. These initial results encouraged the Company to initiate a major radiometric survey to test other parts of the property earlier in the year. A drill program (up to 2,500 metres) is currently being planned to further test high priority targets and is expected to start in Q2/08.

Solex uses the internationally accredited SGS and CIMM Peru S.A laboratories in Lima, Peru to analyse its samples. CIMM Peru S.A. also has a sample preparation facility in Juliaca, close to the project site.

The field work was conducted by ExploAndes under the supervision of Dr. Cesar Munoz, Ph.D. Geology (Operations Manager of ExploAndes) and Mr. Alfredo Gamarra (Solex Chief Field Geologist), B.Sc. Geology. Jonathan Challis, FIMMM, is a Qualified Person under Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 43-101 policies, and is responsible for the contents of this news release.
