Vancouver, B.C. -- Orex Minerals Inc. -- (REX: TSX-V) ("Orex") is pleased to announce that the contract to complete 2500 line kilometres of airborne geophysical surveying on our Barsele Gold Project in Sweden has been awarded to SkyTEM Surveys ApS ("SkyTEM") of Denmark.

The Barsele Project is located some 40 kilometres southeast of the town of Storuman in Västerbottens Län, a regional district of northern Sweden approximately 600 km due north of Stockholm. The geographic coordinates for the Project are approximately 65°05' north latitude and 17°30' east longitude.

Gary Cope, President of Orex, says, "We are excited to begin this airborne geophysical survey, which will outline additional drill targets outside of the known zones."

SkyTEM will use a helicopter-borne time-domain electromagnetic system which has a transmitter moment of 500,000 NIA to maximize the depth of penetration. The airborne survey will yield high resolution maps of the apparent resistivity/conductivity, total magnetic field, vertical magnetic derivatives and more. Depths of exploration greater than 400 metres are expected to be achieved.
