Aurex Energy Corp. has reported high grade assays including 18.3 meters of 79.53 grams per tonne silver, 4.16% copper, and 5.32% zinc from an underground sampling program carried out at the Whiskey Flat Project in Nevada

The Whiskey Flat Project, located 26 kilometers southeast of Hawthorne, Nevada in the Excelsior Mountains, consists of 12 patented lode claims, and 47 unpatented lode claims, covering approximately 1,200 acres.

The property hosts numerous adits, pits, trenches and shafts from activity dating back to 1882.

The most recent underground activity was carried out at the Quailey Mine which consisted of rehabilitating at least 400 metres of drifting with rail, air and water and completing 180 metres of new drifting and raising.

Extensive underground sampling, carried out by Axiom Exploration, included these selected weighted average assay results, confirming the high-grade nature of the mineralization over excellent widths and supporting the grades and widths reported from mining activity in the early 1970s.


The company is operating under an option agreement, under which it can earn a 50% interest in the project through option payments and carrying out work programs, and in the nearby Red Rock Mill and mill site by bringing the custom mill to commercial production capability.

This table shows selected highlights of the 1970s work, which was reported in a news release in February 2018.

Gary Billingsley, President and CEO, stated: "We are extremely encouraged by the grades and widths of the mineralization observed by our technical team underground at Whiskey Flat. While we don't fully understand the relationships between the various types of mineralization, it's clear that it extends, along with some very high grades, outwards from the skarn contact for a significant distance. This can be observed both on surface and underground. Aurex is looking forward to the next phase of work at Whiskey Flat later this year."

The company, which previously traded as Canadian Platinum Corp, is focused on the acquisition and development of a diversified portfolio of resource properties critical to current and future energy production.

This includes natural gas for LNG, base metals including copper and zinc, platinum group elements, strategic metals including cobalt, and precious metals.

On February 20th, 2019, the company announced that it has completed the acquisition of a privately-held US company with substantial natural gas reserves in the Barnett Shale, Texas.

The shares are trading at $0.24.
