Vantex Expands Land Position at Moriss Zone Exploration to Target High Grade Extensions

LA PRAIRIE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2013) - Vantex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VAX)(FRANKFURT:UD7A)(ALPHA:VAX) is very pleased to announce that the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources and Wildlife has granted to Vantex the right to explore on the property to the north and west of the high grade Moriss zone. The new property expands the land position adjacent to the Moriss zone by 100 hectares, and is thought to host the lateral and depth extensions of existing mineralization discovered there including 59.5 gpt gold over 6.2 meters in hole VPE12-50. A 5,000 meter drill program is planned to start on the new property in February.

"We are very pleased to finally receive this property extension. It gives us the exciting opportunity to test the full potential of the Moriss zone. Our exploration program has been ready for many months and we plan to start drilling in February, providing enough time to complete a financing and build access to the new drill sites" stated Mr. Guy Morissette, CEO of Vantex.

New area to drill:

Located in the west part of the Galloway property, the Moriss zone was discovered at the end of 2010, and together with the GP and Hendrick forms the Golden Triangle area. Fifty (50) drill holes were completed on the Moriss zone since 2010, and those results show the presence of an important gold system comprised of several zones with economic grades.
