Vantex Acquires 27 Mining Claims in the Bousquet Township and Receives a $75 000 Cash Payment From Sale of NSR

LA PRAIRIE, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2015) - The management of Vantex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VAX)(FRANKFURT:UD7A)(ALP:VAX) announces that it has acquired from Hecla Mining Company (Hecla) a 100% interest in a mining block consisting of 27 mining cells located in Bousquet Township as well as receiving a $ 75,000 cash payment in consideration of the totality of the royalty Vantex held in the Heva property.

The Heva property was sold to Aurizon Mines before the merger with Hecla (see press release of 27 February 2008).

This new block, integrated with the other blocks recently acquired by Vantex, will form the Lac Bousquet property and will consist of 79 cells covering an area of about 1,500 hectares.

Many gold showings of importance are present on the Lake Bousquet property. These showings are associated with a splay of the Cadillac Fault, one of the most prolific gold faults in the world, and consist of a swarm of quartz veins contained in sediments or in felsic intrusives along the fault.

Several gold intersections obtained in drilling and channel sampling with gold grades of 3.73 g/t Au over 5.5 m and 5.91 g/t to the 3.0 m were intersected on the property.

The presence of gold-bearing structures associated with the Cadillac Fault and hydrothermal alteration give an excellent gold potential to this property. Moreover, the immediate gold producers near Vantex are IAMGOLD (Westwood Mine) and Agnico-Eagle (La Ronde Mine). There are also many former gold producers in the area such as the Doyon and Mouska mines. More than 12 M oz of gold were produced within a radius of 10 km from the property,

A comprehensive geological compilation and a ground magnetic survey will be made on this new project in the coming weeks.

In other news, Line Boucher resigned as a director of Vantex for personal reasons. Vantex wishes to thank Mrs Boucher for her contribution to the board of directors.
