BMEX Samples up to 300 g/t Gold at Surface, Identifies Two Separate Kilometric Gold Corridors and a 900 m VMS Target at Dunlop Bay
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 17, 2022) - BMEX Gold Inc. (TSXV: BMEX) (OTCQB: MRIRF) (FSE: 8M0) ("BMEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce multiple high-grade gold results from the field campaign at Dunlop Bay and the start of a 3,000 m drilling program and a follow-up geological mapping, sampling and prospecting program.
The summer 2022 program at Dunlop Bay returned numerous high-grade gold sample results. Of the 96 grab samples taken during program:
- One (1) sample returned 300.00 g/t Au;
- Four (4) samples returned greater than 100.00 g/t Au;
- Fourteen (14) samples contained more than 10.00 g/t Au and;
- Twenty-five (25) samples contained over 1.00 g/t Au (see Table 1 for full results).
These samples were taken from outcropping surfaces and come from three now well-defined gold-rich zones. These three main assets are: the Marcelle-Rolande-Edith veins trend, the Omala-Bella-Lun-Echo trend and the Dunlop Bay-Ouest showing (see Figure 1).

In addition to the gold rich assays, the field campaign also significantly improved the confidence in the historical drill results and other geological data. Several historical drill casings were surveyed, and the data is now included in a more robust and complete drilling database. As shown on Figure 1, the Dunlop Bay showing now clearly consist of a N120 trending corridor linking Marcelle, Rolande and Edith veins. This corridor direction is consistent with the structural analysis performed during the field campaign. The Figure 2 long section between Rollande and Marcelle veins highlights several hundred meters between high grade gold results that remains untested. A similar trend has also been interpreted between the Bella and Omala veins, which is also barely tested by drilling. Both N120 gold corridors extend for a kilometer each representing large targets for the current drill program.

On the Dunlop Bay-Ouest showing, an extended ground EM (electromagnetic) survey was successfully extended southward during this past summer. The survey has led to the discovery of many new conductive anomalies. These new EM plates align along an anomalously conductive trend striking North-South and extending for over 900 metres. The EM anomalies are already known to be locally gold-bearing with historical intersection going up to 6.84 g/t Au over 1.50 m (DDH ME-8, GM05804, Figure 1). This historical grade is associated with sulphide stringers and is located on the very edge of one of the many new conductive plates identified from the ground EM survey and new interpretation.
Robert Pryde, President of BMEX Gold, stated: "The integrated exploration strategy defined earlier this year is paying off and I am thrilled by the size and tenure of our gold and VMS targets. With the work completed this summer, we have now defined two well controlled gold bearing corridors of kilometric order. The Dunlop Bay showing was until now, thought to be a scattered gold halo. At the same time, we have very encouraging results from a ground EM survey on Dunlop Bay Ouest / Guislau area. This is a good indicator of a VMS style of mineralization and the EM anomaly is now extending on more than 900 m of strike. This new electromagnetic survey and interpretation permitted BMEX to highlight yet undrilled plates of conductance going up to 1,000 siemens. A second phase of geological field work and prospecting is currently underway to further enhance the geological and assay data available on this sector and the rest of the property. Obviously, the Dunlop Bay Ouest showing, the Marcelle-Rolande-Edith and Bella-Omala trends will be priority targets of a 3,000 m drilling program starting this week."
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 historical information on the Property, particularly in regard 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.
