Vancouver, B.C. – Orex Minerals Inc. – (REX: TSX-V, ORXIF.PK) (“Orex”) is pleased to announce that Protek Norr AB of Skellefteå Sweden has been retained to carry out a 5000-meter diamond drill program at our Barsele Gold Project (the “Project”). In this first phase of drilling, 12 to 15 holes are planned, with a completion date estimated to be mid March, 2012.  The initial goal of this drilling program is infill and expansion of the known gold resource in the Central and Avan areas of the Project.  It is also planned to drill test new gold and base metal targets outlined by the recent geophysical surveys within the Project.

Gary Cope, President of Orex, says, “This drilling program is the logical follow-up to the airborne and ground geophysical surveys that Orex has recently completed within the Project area. We are looking forward to a positive working relationship with Protek Norr.”
