Triex Minerals Corporation: Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2008) - Triex Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TXM) (the "Company") continues to actively evaluate and advance its portfolio of uranium projects across North America, and is pleased to provide an update of both current and planned activities. Property details, including ownership and location maps are available on the Company's website at

Completed and upcoming programs during 2008 include, in chronologic order:

- Pasfield Lake: 70 line-kilometres of transient magnetotelluric surveys (AMT) completed in April, both infilling and extending the previous grid.

- Riverlake & Highrock: 211 line-kilometres of ground EM surveys completed in April on four grids.

- Mann Lake: 2,534 metres of drilling in three holes, finished in April to complete the program started in November. One target on the property remains to be tested.

- Mountain Lake: 2,450 metres of drilling completed in nine holes on three regional targets at Mountain Lake. Drilling at the fourth target (Kendall River) is ongoing and will be completed within the next two weeks.

- Pasfield Lake: 30 line-kilometres of soil and biogeochemistry (greater than 800 samples) completed in July on the AMT grid that spans the Cable Bay Shear Zone east of the lake.

- Pasfield Lake: a 140 line-kilometre airborne 3-D Full Tensor gravity gradient survey has mobilized, and is designed specifically to produce forward-modeled gravity profiles across the uplift block.

- Riverlake & Highrock: grid-based soil geochemistry is planned for early August, and will cover conductors defined on both airborne and ground EM surveys.

- West Carswell: a 35 line-kilometre transient magnetotelluric survey (AMT) is planned for August on one grid with 7 lines designed for three dimensional modeling of conductors associated with the Harrison Shear Zone.

- Riverlake & Highrock: 2,500 metres of diamond drilling contracted to Northwest Drilling for September will test highest priority, near surface targets.

- Stony Road: 3,000 metres of diamond drilling contracted to River Valley Energy Services for October to test coincident airborne and ground conductors.

- Pasfield Lake: 3,000 metres of drilling planned for November-December to test the Cable Bay Shear Zone east of the lake using results from the summer geochem, AMT and gravity surveys.

- West Carswell: 3,000 metres of diamond drilling planned for January-February 2009 will test the Harrison Shear Zone using results from the upcoming AMT survey.
