Amex Reports Several High Grade Intercepts from HGZ Including 75.81 g/t Au over 4.85 m

Montreal, Quebec--(January 23, 2023) - Amex Exploration Inc. (TSXV: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF) ("Amex or the Company") is pleased to announce updated results on continued expansion and definition drilling of the High Grade Zone ("HGZ") on the Perron project in the Abitibi region of Quebec. Today's results include intercepts from both the eastern and western portions of the system and are focused on defining less understood areas as well as testing the strike and depth extensions of the zone. See Figure 1 for a map of the Eastern Gold Zone area of Perron, Figure 2 for a longitudinal section of the HGZ including the location of today's holes, Table 1 for a list of all results, and Table 2 for location information of the drill holes.
Today's highlight results (in core length) include:
PE-22-535: 75.81 g/t Au over 4.85 m at a vertical depth of ~750 m
          Including: 193.79 g/t Au over 1.00 m
          And including: 235.87 g/t Au over 0.50 m
          And including: 77.12 g/t Au over 0.50 m
PE-22-524W5: 7.40 g/t Au over 14.80 m at a vertical depth of ~1200 m
          Including: 152.22 g/t Au over 0.50 m
PE-22-524W6: 24.34 g/t Au over 3.85 m at a vertical depth of ~1210 m
          Including: 76.38 g/t Au over 1.20 m

Fury Drills Multiple Zones of High-Grade Gold at the Hinge Target including 22.77 g/t Gold over 1.5 Metres

VANCOUVER, BC / January 23, 2023 / Fury Gold Mines Limited (TSX:FURY)(NYSE American:FURY) ("Fury" or the "Company") is pleased to provide results for the final three 2022 core drill holes at the Eau Claire project located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The 2022 drill program successfully expanded the high-grade gold mineralized footprint at the Hinge Target, Gap Zone, and eastern expansion target areas. To date, the eleven holes drilled into the Hinge Target have had a hit rate of nearly 55% above the Eau Claire underground measured and indicated resource grade of 6.3 g/t gold and over 80% above the underground cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t gold. Collectively, these results have provided a clear focus for deposit expansion moving forward into 2023.
Drill hole 22EC-059 was drilled oblique to all other drilling at the Hinge Target (at an angle of 150 degrees) and provides confirmation of the current geological interpretation. The hole intercepted eight zones of gold mineralization across 350 metres (m) drilled width including 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold, 1.50m of 15.30 g/t gold and 1.50m of 6.46 g/t gold (Table 1). The reported intercepts extend the gold mineralization and represent a 100m offset to the west and 150m vertical offset of the defined shallow 850 Zone within the Hinge Target. Notably, the reported intercept of 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold at a downhole depth of 181.5m, approximately 155m below surface, is one of the shallowest high-grade intercepts to date within the Hinge Target zone.

Westhaven Drills 6.20 Metres of 73.51 g/t Gold and 92.37 g/t Silver Within 12.00 Metres of 39.42 g/t Gold and 51.81 g/t Silver at the Franz Zone; Shovelnose Gold Property

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2023 -- Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce drill results from its drill campaign at its 100% owned 17,623-hectare Shovelnose gold property. Shovelnose is located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt, British Columbia.
Westhaven is reporting assays for 22 holes from its drill campaign at Shovelnose. An additional 10 holes are in the lab pending assays.
Gareth Thomas, President & CEO, comments: “We have now drilled greater than 450 gram-metre gold intercepts on three separate zones at Shovelnose gold property. This latest intercept at Franz (473 gram-metres gold), is 1km northwest from the hole at the FMN zone where we drilled the highest gold-silver intercept ever on the property at 857 gram-metres gold, and 2.3km from the 1.1-million-ounce gold equivalent resource at South Zone. The recent Franz drilling is significant because the mineralization starts at surface, is easily accessible, and bonanza grade. Hole SN22-333 (12.00m of 39.42 g/t Au) was collared 50m from SN20-101 (7.78m of 14.84 g/t Au) which was the best hole drilled at Franz until now. Drilling at the Franz will resume shortly with the view of stepping out to the northwest to test for the extension of this high-grade intercept."

Labrador Gold Intersects 20.88 g/t Au Over 5 Metres at Big Vein, Kingsway Project

TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2023 -- Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the latest results from recent drilling targeting the highly prospective Appleton Fault Zone over a 12km strike length. The drilling is part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre diamond drilling program at its 100% owned Kingsway Project.
Highlights of the drilling include an intersection of 20.88 g/t Au over 5 metres that included 124.21g/t Au over 0.81 metres and 7.41 g/t Au over 1.0 metres in Hole K-22-206, and 6.04 g/t Au over 1.20 metres in Hole K-22-208. Both holes were drilled at the north end of Big Vein.
“We continue to follow up on the success of last year’s drilling at Big Vein with another high-grade intersection at the north end of the zone. Big Vein has now been drilled over a strike length of approximately 520 metres along the west side of the Appleton Fault Zone and remains open to the northeast and to the southwest,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “Drilling is ongoing at both ends of the zone to extend the strike length of the mineralization.”
