BMEX Gold Announces Exploration Program for Second Half of 2021, Appoints Robert Pryde as President and Provides Corporate Update
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 4, 2021) - BMEX Gold Inc. (TSXV: BMEX) (OTCQB: MRIRF) (FSE: 8M0) ("BMEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the details of its exploration plans for H2 of 2021 on its King Tut Property and Dunlop Bay Property. The company is fully funded for its 2021-2022 exploration programs.
The project is located 65 km east of Amex Exploration's Perron Property (see Figure 1). BMEX completed an inaugural 4,500-metre drill program on King Tut during the first half of the year. Nearly every hole returned anomalous gold values related to quartz-carbonates veining indicating that a hydrothermal gold-bearing system is hosted on the property. Highlight hole TUT-21-018 assayed 81.89 g/t Au over 0.45 metres and targeted the western edge of the known gold bearing structure at King Tut which left almost 2 km of strike in the property to test westward. (see press release of June 14, 2021)
