Canex Metals Inc. (TSXV:CANX)(OTC PINK:NOMNF)(FRA:NJM1) ("CANEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce exploration results for 670 soil samples and 42 rock samples from the Gold Range Project, Arizona. These surface sampling results combined with geologic mapping have added new exploration targets and increased our understanding of, and confidence in, the 3-kilometre-long oxide gold exploration target at Eldorado-Malco-Excelsior

Highlights

  • Surface sampling and mapping has increased the Excelsior-Malco-Eldorado trend to 3.2 kilometres of strike-length, and the zone remains open to the northeast under cover.
  • A 1000 metre long by 250 to 500 metre wide gold in soil anomaly partially overlaps the known Excelsior mineralized zone and indicates exploration potential to the east and northeast. Rock sampling within this soil anomaly has identified several mineralized outcrops including one poorly exposed zone that returned 8.06 g/t gold over 0.6 metres.
  • Forty new claims have been staked to cover the projected strike of the Excelsior mineralized trend.
  • Soil sampling is proving to be a highly effected method for identifying zones with bulk tonnage potential and understanding large scale structural features associated with mineralization.
  • 47 holes and 5216 metres of reverse circulation drilling have been completed during the current program.
  • Results for 34 drill holes are pending and will be released in batches as they are received, validated, and interpreted.

Assay results for 670 soil samples and 42 rock samples are presented in this release. Rock samples include a mix of chip and grab samples with grades ranging from below detection to 66.6 g/t gold, with an average from all 42 samples of 2.8 g/t gold. Assay results for a further 169 rock samples are pending. Soil anomalies and rock sample locations are shown on the map below. Of note is the large gold in soil anomaly extending from Eldorado to the southwest through Malco and to Excelsior in the northeast, a strike length of 3.2 kilometres.

The Excelsior soil anomaly is defined by a low-level gold in soil anomaly 1000 metres long by 250 to 500 metres wide that overlaps and extends from the known zone of mineralization at Excelsior. Prospecting within the Excelsior soil anomaly has discovered multiple mineralized outcrops with chip samples returning 8.06 g/t gold over 0.6 metres and 0.71 g/t gold over 0.7 metres. The majority of the Excelsior soil anomaly remains unexplored and the zone trends under cover to the northeast. Forty lode mining claims have recently been staked to cover the projected strike of the zone along with a second area of open ground to the south.

Surface sampling at the Malco Zone has defined a gold in soil anomaly up to 750 metres long by up to 350 metres wide within the central part of the larger Excelsior-Malco-Eldorado trend. Previous sampling has identified multiple high-grade gold veins within this zone, and recent surface work identified two more veins which returned 29.6 g/t and 5.44 g/t gold in grab samples. Malco contains multiple historic underground workings along a 500 metre strike length. The drill is currently focused on drill testing Malco over 300 metres of strike length.

Sampling at the Lillian Zone has expanded the Central Zone gold in soil anomaly to the northwest connecting it to Lillian. This combined Central-Lillian soil anomaly now covers an area 1100 metres long by up to 200 metres wide. New rock sampling within this anomaly have identified a mineralized outcrop which returned 1.15 g/t gold in a grab sample. Multiple old workings and prospect pits occur through the Central-Lillian soil anomaly and 2 recent drill holes have tested the zone, with results pending.

*All grab and chip samples reported here were taken by CANEX personnel with all chip samples taken perpendicular to the strike of the structures sampled. Grab samples are selective in nature and are not necessarily representative of mineralization on the property.

Dr. Shane Ebert. President of the Company stated, "We are very pleased to see our surface exploration efforts increasing the size of our exploration targets and giving us multiple new target areas for drill testing. Surface mapping and sampling have identified additional zones of mineralized quartz stockwork veining that run parallel to the known Excelsior zone on the east side. The identification of multiple subparallel mineralized zones within the Excelsior soil anomaly certainly increase the near surface tonnage potential of the zone."

Drilling Summary

Forty seven holes have been completed during the ongoing drill program (holes GR21-49 to GR21-95) and the drill is currently on the 48th hole (GR22-96). Over 5216 metres (17,110 feet) have been drilled exceeding the planned program total of 5000 metres.

The drill has completed 12 step out holes around GR21-57 located on the southern end of the Excelsior zone and which recently intersected 1.0 g/t gold over 59.45 metres starting from surface (previously released, see December 16, 2021 news release). There is now sufficient drilling in this zone to determine if mineralization continues and widens to the south.

Two holes have recently been completed on new exploration targets, one testing a large gold in soil anomaly in the Central Zone and one testing multiple mineralized zone exposed at the historic Lillian Mine. The drill is currently focused on testing the Malco Zone in 4 deep holes testing about 300 metres of strike length.

For the current program results for 12 holes have been received and released, an additional 34 holes are in the process of being analyzed and will be released in batches as they are complete.

Quality Control and Assay Procedures

Soil and rock samples were taken by Company personnel and analysed by Skyline Assayers and Laboratories in Tucson, Arizona (which is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited). Soil samples were screened to minus 80 mesh and analysed for gold by fire assay with an atomic absorption finish (method FA-01). The 670 soil samples reported here had gold results ranging from

Rock samples were prepared using a 1000g pulp and assayed by a 50g fire assay with an atomic absorption finish (method FA-01-50g). Standards and blanks were included with select surface sample batches.
