BMEX Gold Discovers Luxor Gold Zone at King Tut and Announces its 2022 Exploration Program for King Tut and Dunlop Bay Properties

Apr 26, 2022

BMEX Gold Inc. (TSXV: BMEX) (OTCQB: MRIRF) (FSE: 8M0) ("BMEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of its Fall 2021 drilling campaign at King Tut Gold Project ('King Tut" or the "Project") in the Abitibi region, Québec. Significant grades include 7.07 g/t Au over 1.00 m from drill hole TUT-21-032 in a newly discovered gold zone (the Luxor Gold Zone) and 7.61 g/t g/t Au over 0.75 m within the known mineralized area from drill hole TUT-21-023. All assays from the Fall 2021 drill campaign at King Tut have been received and reported. Figure 1 shows the location of the discussed drill holes with their significant intersects.

TUT-21-032, which returned the above-mentioned promising grades of the campaign, is located 700 m South-West from the King Tut showing, along the Main King Tut trend (Figure 1). This drill hole is isolated and thus defines a new gold zone (Luxor Zone) on its own. Gold in TUT-21-032 is associated to a silicified tourmaline-carbonate-pyrite brecciated zone which marks the contact between relatively ductile tuffs and more competent andesite unit (Figure 2). Fall 2021 drill holes in the heart of the known King Tut showing delivered several similar gold-bearing geological conditions to TUT-21-032. Every drill hole along the Main King Tut Trend intersected evidence of an intense deformation corridor: intensely sheared zones, complex folding of S1 and pervasive sericite-carbonate-silica alterations. As shown on Figure 1, TUT-21-032 also cuts a West-South-West lineament interpreted from the magnetic susceptibility maps. Hence, this drill hole, being isolated but potentially cross-cutting two major structures and exhibiting typical gold-bearing hydrothermal mineralization known in greenstone belts, represents a highly prospective discovery for the Company.
