MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 26, 2012) - Cap-Ex Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CEV)(FRANKFURT:X0V)(OTCQX:CPXVF) ("Cap-Ex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources (Mineral Lands Division) has granted approval for the Company's 2012 Application for Exploration Approval and Notice of Planned Mineral Exploration Work for the Block 103 Property in Newfoundland and Labrador, approximately 30 km northwest of Schefferville, Quebec.
Based on the exploration work completed to date-including over 6,000 metres of drilling in 2011-the Company has revealed two primary zones of magnetite mineralization on its wholly owned Block 103 Property: the Northwest Zone and the Greenbush Zone (refer to "Block 103 Map" in Figure 1). Both zones exhibited excellent drilling and assay results and have high potential to identify additional mineralization as several holes terminated in mineralization and, in most holes, mineralization started near surface and was open in all directions. Now with the required permits in place, the Company can continue explorations efforts at these important zones.
The 2012 exploration program has been designed to include a minimum of 15,000 metres of diamond drilling and additional surface sampling primarily focused on the continued investigation and definition of mineralization in the Greenbush Zone. Drilling is expected to commence by the end of April and will be completed using four diamond drills over an estimated four month period.
The results of the 2012 program will be used to support a NI 43-101-compliant resource estimate currently planned to be released by the end of December 2012, and a preliminary economic assessment, planned to be released by March 2013.
Mr. François Laurin, President and CEO of Cap-Ex, stated: "Receipt of these permits is both an important and last milestone required for us to start our aggressive 2012 exploration program. The crews and equipment are ready to begin the drill program, as the company previously announced this year. We are confident that the Company will execute on our 2012 Plan in time for our 43-101 compliant maiden mineral resource reports."
The samples from drilling were processed and assayed by SGS Canada Lab based in Lakefield, ON. The samples were assayed using XRF, Satmagan and Davis tube techniques.
Alex Walus, P.Geo., an employee of the Company and a qualified person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific information in this news release.
