Apex Resources Expands Gold-Silver Mineralization on its Mount Anderson Property, Yukon
September 18, 2018
September 18, 2018, Vancouver, BC - Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) is pleased to announce that that it has received positive assay results for rock chip samples from its Mount Anderson Property, Yukon. The 2018 sample results have gold and silver values of 0.1 to 9.0 g/t gold and 1.4 to 1,034.0 g/t silver within the 2.0 square km Induced Polarization (IP) grid. Together with sample results obtained in 2017 the results show that elevated gold and silver values are associated with historic mineralized showings and alteration zones that occur along anomalous geophysical zones characterized by resistivity lows.
The mapping and rock chip sampling program was completed in August by Aurora Geosciences Ltd. of Whitehorse, YT to prepare the property for trenching and diamond drill testing. The mapping program focused on the previously reported IP geophysical grid where several large open ended chargeability and resistivity anomalies occur across the two kilometre length of the survey area (Aug 14, 2018 news release). During the mapping program rock chip samples were taken from areas of sub outcrop, float and colluvium in the geophysical target areas.
While following the geophysical trends the 2018 program discovered mineralized boulders up to 500 metres northwest of the Whirlwind zone and extended the Adanac zone 200 metres east to the eastern end of the geophysical grid. The following table gives the highlights of the rock sampling program from all samples taken over the IP geophysical survey area in 2017-18:

Results of the present program continue to confirm the historical showings and show a strong association with geophysical areas of low resistivity. Phase 2, excavator trenching followed by diamond drilling will test the geophysical targets and mineralized zones identified by the IP survey and rock sampling programs. Aurora Geoscience Ltd. has recommended an initial program to test the geophysical and geochemical targets with 1,400 metres of diamond drilling in 9 holes. The property is fully permitted for diamond drill testing.
