LA PRAIRIE, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 18, 2006) - The management of Vantex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VTX) announces the start of a geophysical survey on the ANA property, located on the west border of the Eleonore property, Roberto showing, of Virginia Gold Mines - Goldcorp. According to the information released by Virginia Gold Mines (October 6, 2005 press release) : " The Roberto system is now traced on a length of 1.9 km and at a vertical depth of 720 m and remains open in all directions."

Also, Azimut Exploration Inc. announced December 14, 2005 that its partner Eastmain Resources Inc. had identified many significant gold exploration targets during the initial exploration program conducted on block D of the Opinaca property. The group of claims is located north-west of the ANA property and the Eleonore property, which contains the major Roberto gold discovery.

The ANA property, covering an area of 900 hectares, will be covered by a geophysical survey including a magnetometer survey and an IP survey. These surveys should give management potential exploration targets for striping, next summer.
