Vancouver, BC -- Orex Minerals Inc. -- (TSX-V: REX) ("Orex")
, is pleased to announce that a TITAN-24 ground geophysical survey team has now been deployed by Quantec Geosciences on Orex's Los Crestones Project in Sinaloa, Mexico. A ground Induced Polarization and Magnetotelluric survey will be conducted over the next few weeks.
Orex's President, Gary Cope says, "Los Crestones has potential for a very large mineralizing system below the known high-grade structures of the crestons. This deep penetration geophysical survey will add to our property knowledge for drill hole targeting later this season."
Los Crestones Gold-Silver-Copper Project, Sinaloa, Mexico
The Los Crestones project totals 4,168 hectares and is prospective for gold, silver and copper. Mineralization includes north-south oriented structural zones hosting quartz veins, quartz stockworks and breccia fill possibly related to a deeper porphyry and/or diatreme system. Three main structural zones were targeted in the first phases of work. Corona, Bohemia and Indio are elongate structures recognized on surface as erosion-resistant silicified ribs or "crestons". The airborne and ground geophysical programs commissioned by Orex are designed to complement ongoing geological mapping and geochemical sampling. Orex intends to develop drill targets over the summer; diamond drilling is scheduled for late 2014.
