Amex Exploration resumes drilling at Perron Project in wake of Quebec fires

Jul 11, 2023

Amex Exploration Inc. has resumed its gold exploration drilling program at its 100% owned Perron project located just outside the town of Normetal, Quebec. Currently four drills are on site at the newly discovered Team Zone. The Team Zone is currently outlined over 400 x 200 m laterally and from surface to a depth of approximately 400 m. It sits within the Beaupre Rhyolite at the contact of the Normetal Fault and approximately 600 m north of the High Grade Zone.

Jacques Trottier, Chairman of the Board, commented, "Thanks to the hard work of the fire fighters, the forest fires in the Normetal area are largely behind us and we are resuming our drilling with an immediate focus on the Team Zone. We have identified five distinct orientations of gold-bearing veins and we are delineating the zone at 50 metres centres as well as expanding along trend. Drilling on this target has gone exceptionally well as evidenced by our recent results and I look forward to the balance of the summer drilling and to reporting more results from our exploration work." 

Trottier continued, "With respect to our regional exploration drill program we anticipate following up on the Gratien zone, the N110 corridor to the west, as well as the eastern VMS target later in the summer/fall. There is no shortage of exciting targets at Perron and I am very pleased to be back in the field."

Amex confirms none of its facilities nor equipment were damaged by the forest fires.
