Amex Exploration Inc. (TSXV: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) ("Amex or the Company") announces that shareholders have approved of all resolutions brought before them at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders ("AGM") held on May 10, 2022. A total of 24,177,225 shares were represented in person or by proxy at the meeting, representing approximately 23.72% of the Corporation's outstanding shares.

The following Board members stood for re-election and were duly re-elected: Victor Cantore, Pierre Carrier, Bryan Coates, Yvon Gélinas, Anik Gendron, Luisa Moreno, André Shareck, and Jacques Trottier. These directors will hold office until the next annual meeting or until their successors are elected or appointed or a director vacates office in accordance with the by-laws of the Corporation.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT) was reappointed as the external auditor of TGSC and will hold office until the next annual meeting at such remuneration as may be determined by the directors with 99% of the votes cast supporting the appointment of the auditor. Shareholders also voted 98% in favor, to approve Amex's rolling up to 10% stock option plan, through which the total number of common shares reserved for issuance as incentive stock options shall not exceed 10% of the total issued and outstanding common shares. The plan remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Corporate Update

Also during the AGM, the Company provided a review of operations during the year 2021 and to date. Depending on the season, Amex has up to 10 drills turning and is drilling approximately 10,000 metres a month, making this campaign one of the largest and most aggressive exploration programs in Canada.

The carefully planned 2021 exploration program led to important new discoveries:

  • the Alizee Gold Zone
  • the 210 Gold Zone
  • the Upper HGZ
  • the E2 Gold Zone and,
  • a new copper rich VMS discovery, the QF Zone.

In addition, Amex further defined and expanded the Denise Zone and identified exceptional high-grade gold continuity in the High-Grade Gold Zone (HGZ). To date, Amex has hit very high-grade and often visible gold in multiple zones across the project over a 3.5 km corridor of gold mineralization.

Much of the winter drilling campaign focused on the Denise zone and the newly discovered E2 zone, taking advantage of better access due to the cold weather. The Denise target is a very important zone that is kilometric in scale. Numerous additional holes are pending and planned, to better define this area along strike and to depth.

The E2 zone is also a very important target for Amex, as it is an underground-type ore shoot that lies only ~250 metres from the HGZ zone and is proving to be sub-parallel. Of course, the HGZ continues to be an important zone and is a very rich underground target.

In terms of financing, over 60M$ was raised since 2021 and since the discovery of the HGZ at the end of 2018, Amex has drilled approximately 280,000 meters, in 788 drill holes, and another 60-70,000 meters of drilling is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

With all of this activity, the Company wishes to highlight its commitment to moving forward using environmental, social and economic best practices. Earlier this year, Amex began the process to obtain the ECOLOGO® Certification for Mineral Exploration Companies. Amex expects to complete certification before the end of the year. ECOLOGO® features third-party certification of environmental, social and economic practices.

Finally, the Company adopted a Code of Conduct and Business Ethics and is addressing diversity, women now make up to 25% of our Board and visible minorities, make up 12.5%. To support our efforts, the Board has created an ESG Committee to ensure strong, value creating, governance practices in place.

Board Update

Following the AGM, the Corporation is announcing that as of today, Mr. Bryan Coates, an independent director, has resigned from the Board of Directors for personal reasons. Amex Exploration thanks Mr. Coates for his contribution to the Board over the past 2 years.

Qualified Person
Maxime Bouchard P.Geo. M.Sc.A., (OGQ 1752) and Jérôme Augustin P.Geo. Ph.D., (OGQ 2134), Independent Qualified Persons as defined by Canadian NI 43-101 standards, have reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release.

Amex Exploration Inc

Overview

Amex Exploration Inc. (TSXV:AMX,FRA:MX0,OTCQX:AMXEF) is a junior resource company focused on building ounce and making high-grade gold discoveries at its 100%-owned Perron Gold property located in Canada’s premier mining jurisdictions such as Quebec and Ontario. The Perron property is located in the heart of Canada’s gold production in Quebec’s Abitibi Greenstone Belt. In addition to Perron, Amex’s portfolio includes three other properties focused on gold and base metals in the Abitibi region.

As the second-largest gold producer in Canada, Quebec consistently ranks as one of the most attractive mining jurisdictions in the world due in large part to its mining-friendly policies, ease in obtaining permits, high-quality infrastructure and extensive mineral wealth. The excellent mining infrastructure in Quebec and the Abitibi region where Amex operates helps to keep drilling costs low. The province is home to the country’s largest gold mine, the Canadian Malartic, which is one of more than 100 mines forged within the Abitibi. The belt is recognized as one of the world’s largest and most productive mineral repositories, having produced more than 180 million ounces of gold.

At Perron, Amex Exploration discovered three high-grade gold zones in 2019, now known as the Eastern Gold zone, the Gratien Gold zone, and the Grey Cat zone. The discoveries in these zones were significant in grade, with the Eastern gold zone giving up notable assays of 56.75 g/t gold over 8.5 meters, 29.44 g/t gold over 8.50 meters, 269.33 g/t gold over 1.35 meters and 393 g/t gold over 1.7 meters. These three active exploration zones remain open at depth and along strike allowing for plenty of exploration upside and opportunities to build ounces in known gold zones.

Amex Exploration is in the middle of a fully-funded 100,000-meter drill program with approximately 40,000 meters of drilling completed in 2019 and another 60,000 meters planned for 2020. While the main focus will be on defining and expanding the three main zones of known mineralization, 20,000 meters of planned drilling will be aimed at numerous regional targets that share similar geological features to the known gold zones. The current exploration program aims to provide the basis for a maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate on the project. Amex’s end goal for Perron is to build up ounces quickly in order to become a potential acquisition target.

At the helm of Amex Exploration is a team of proven mine finders and capital market professionals. Executive Chairman of the Board Dr. Jacques Trottier has more than 30 years of experience in mining exploration including time as CEO of Sulliden Exploration where he grew the Shahuindo mines in Peru into a 3 million ounce gold asset. Sulliden merged with Rio Alto, transforming Rio Alto into a mid-tier producer which later merged with Tahoe Resources. President and CEO Victor Cantore has more than 20 years of advisory and leadership experience as an investment advisor with management roles at both public and private companies. During his career, Cantore has organized and structured numerous equity and debt financings, mergers and acquisitions, joint venture partnerships and strategic alliances. Victor was instrumental in securing recent financings that enable Amex recent drilling success. Vice President Exploration Kelly Malcolm is a professional geologist with extensive precious metals exploration experience. He was recently involved in the discovery and delineation of Detour Gold’s high-grade 58N gold deposit.

Amex Exploration Company Highlights

  • Large 100-percent-owned land position in mining-friendly Quebec.
  • More than 15 kilometers of prospective faults in an underexplored section of the Abitibi greenstone belt.
  • Regional geology and drilling suggest there is an opportunity to host multiple deposits of various types, including orogenic gold and gold-rich polymetallic VMS systems on the property.
  • Current exploration program aims to provide a basis for maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate.
  • An experienced management team of proven mine finders.
  • Tight capital structure that is well-capitalized; Eric Sprott is the largest strategic shareholder with 12 percent of shares; management holds a combined 13 percent of shares.
  • One of the top-performing TSX stocks of 2019.

Amex Exploration’s Perron Project, Quebec

The Perron gold property is located approximately 110 kilometers north of the town of Rouyn-Noranda in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec. The 4,517-hectare property is fully road accessible all year round and is fully serviced by power and water.

Abitibi Greenstone Belt

Perron hosts 15 kilometers of faults to explore including the Perron and the Normetal fault. The regional northwest-southeast trending Normetal fault delineates a major structural corridor associated with massive sulfide deposits. This fault has given rise to notable ore bodies such as the nearby past-producing Normetal copperzinc-gold-silver mine and the Normetmar zinc deposit as well as a few gold-bearing vein showings.

Perron was originally explored for base metals in the mid-1990s. Since acquiring the property in 1996, Amex has conducted a series of successful exploration programs aimed at the Beaupre Block, a highly prospective wedge that is known to host gold at the Perron property. Over the years this exploration work has led to several gold and base metal discoveries, including three high-grade gold zones: Eastern Gold, Gratien Gold and Grey Cat. The underexplored property also hosts several compelling regional drill targets.
