VANCOUVER, BC – Goldex Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GDX) (“Goldex” or the “Company”) today announced preliminary assay results from the first seven of twelve diamond drill holes on its flagship El Pato property in Guatemala.
The first seven holes point to expected high grade mineralization in the principal zones of El Pato with holes in the high grade El Cerrito and El Cerrito West areas showing some exciting grades and intervals.
Goldex expects the next set of assay results for the remaining five holes of the project to be available within the next few weeks.
GDXP Hole-10 showed a 30.48m intersection averaging 5.04 g/t Au that includes a 9.15m section averaging 12.38 g/t Au.
The recently completed diamond drill program of twelve exploratory holes goes hand in hand with the bulk sampling taking place at El Pato. The Cerrito West zone at El Pato has consistently showed high levels of near surface mineralization with average bulk sample grade of 28.64 g/t Au (see News Release dated May 18th 2011).
The drill program recently completed was designed to prove up average grades as indicated by the UN and Guatemalan government drill programs in the late 1980’s and 90’s as well as to map and explore the extent of the veins and structures present. GDXP Hole 10 of this program, as shown above, contains the typically expected mineralization present at El Pato while other holes allow for more precise mapping of the vein structures.
It is the intent of Goldex management to proceed with additional bulk sampling in the principal sectors in an attempt to further show the nature of the available mineralization at El Pato which includes high grade surface zones as well as an epithermal ‘pinch and swell’ of deeper veins.
“The holes in the high grade zones returned results in line with what we expected to find under the surface at El Pato. I believe that the remaining holes will strengthen this picture of high grade mineralization and compliment the bulk sampling we shall be doing on the principal zones at El Pato.” stated Charles Ross, President of Goldex.
Highlights of the first seven holes are shown below:

Results were collected from gold by fire assay with an AA finish performed by Inspectorate Labs located in Reno, Nevada. Samples were shipped from Inspectorate Labs in Guatemala City after being transported there from the El Pato site by the Goldex geological team.
True width has not been determined.
GDX Exploratory holes 02 and 17 did not show significant results.
Of a total 134 samples taken in all seven holes, 24 showed results over 1 g/t with a highlight of 34 g/t, nine showed grades from 0.5 to 1 g/t, forty two with grades from 0.5 to 0.1 g/t Au while the remaining grades were <0.1 g/t Au.
This news release has been reviewed by Larry Kornze, a qualified person consistent with NI 43-101.
