Oremex Drilling Increases Tejamen Silver Resource to 50 Million Ounces

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Oremex Resources is pleased to announce that additional drilling in 2005  has resulted in an increase of twenty-five percent (25%) in the silver  resource in its Tejamen deposit located in the State of Durango, Mexico.

    Wardrop Engineering Inc. has just completed a Technical Report in the  format set out in National Instrument (NI) 43-101, and the inferred mineral  resources (at a cut-off grade of 20 grams of silver per tonne) are  summarized in the following table:

                                                                                      ------

      (1) The Silver Equivalent (AgEq) is AgEq (equal sign) Ag g/t (x) 64.56.
            Metallurgical recoveries were not considered.@@end@@

    As a result of the foregoing, and the recent excellent results from  metallurgical testing as reported in a News Release dated March 21, 2006,  an independent mining consulting firm will be retained to commence a  preliminary economic assessment of the Tejamen project as an open-pit heap- leach operation.

    In the near future, Oremex also plans to recommence drilling with a  view to adding to the resource (which is open in several directions),  providing  in-fill holes where appropriate, and subsequently preparing a  feasibility study. To date, Oremex has drilled 217 rotary percussion  reverse circulation drill holes for a total of 36,139 meters. The drilling  was laid out on 50 metre lines with drill stations at every 30 metres.

    It should be noted that the Tejamen property is just one of eight owned  by Oremex in Mexico. Drilling on the San Lucas property by Oremex last year  (19 reverse circulation drill holes totaling about 3,000 meters) indicated  a large disseminated zinc, lead, silver, and gold system. One of the other  properties (La Parilla) was recently sold for cash and shares (which, at  today's prices, would be valued at over CDN$800,000). The other properties  are being evaluated, and additional property acquisitions are expected.
