BMEX Gold Discovers Luxor Gold Zone at King Tut and Announces its 2022 Exploration Program for King Tut and Dunlop Bay Properties
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 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, Canada. 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. Composited gold grades are resumed in Table 1. Collar coordinates and drill holes information are listed in Table 2.
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.

In addition to TUT-21-032's Luxor zone, gold grades were also found in TUT-21-030 which targeted the Audet-Ouest showing vicinity. TUT-21-030 intercepted 1.68 g/t Au over 1.50 m and 0.32 g/t Au over 7.50 m at 150 m East of the known surface occurrences from Audet-Ouest showing. These intersections and the historical surface gold values from the showing are aligned along a West-South-West lineament interpreted from the magnetic susceptibility maps (Figure 1). This lineament, from now mentioned as the Audet-Ouest trend, is unexplored and TUT-21-030 gold grades are the first drilling results over it. The rest of the Fall 2021 drilling results are located within the known King Tut showing.

Robert Pryde, President of BMEX Gold, commented: "Overall, the results from the Fall 2021 drilling campaign are promising especially when one considers the Luxor gold zone is a new gold discovery on the property and the geology of this zone warrants follow up work. Each of the holes in the 2021 drill campaign at King Tut intersected gold values which is a very important indication of the potential for a regional scale system on the property and demonstrates potential for additional gold discoveries. Our technical team is building a strong understanding of the gold occurrence and emplacement over the known and newly discovered assets at King Tut. Accordingly, we are going back to King Tut in 2022, starting with a field prospecting and mapping survey during Summer followed by a drilling campaign during Fall 2022. We also intend to launch an exploration program on the Dunlop Bay Property this year."
Following the compilation work over the Dunlop Bay Property (Mattagami region, Quebec, Canada) the BMEX technical team has identified several base and precious metal trends that are summarized in (Figure 3).
The Dunlop Bay exploration program started in April with a surface MAG-EM survey over Dunlop Bay-Ouest and interpretation. Surface prospecting, mapping and sampling is planned over the balance of the property during summer 2022, with a focus on the 'Baie Dunlop' showing and 'Mont Laurier Est' extension. The results from these two steps will be used to target a 3,000 metres drilling campaign that is planned for Fall 2022.

Maxime Bouchard, Geo, M.Sc. (OGQ #1752), an independent Qualified Person as defined by Canadian NI 43-101 standards, has reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release. The drilling campaign and the quality control program have been planned and supervised by Maxime Bouchard. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration. The quality assurance and quality control protocol include insertion of one blank and one standard every 20 samples, in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate, and standard samples accredited by ALS Canada Ltd. during the analytical process. Gold values are estimated by fire assay with finish by atomic absorption. The Qualified Person has not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property, particularly in regards to historical drill results. However, the Qualified Person believes that drilling and analytical results were completed to industry standard practices. The information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Property but may not be representative of expected results.
