Tirex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: TXX) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting submissions for its "Golden Slogan" contest. The entrant who submits the best "Golden Slogan" for Tirex will be awarded 5 ounces of gold. The Company is looking for creative minds to submit a short, concise slogan that reflects the company's success in establishing Mirdita as a potential gold-rich VMS district.
While Tirex was initially attracted to the property due to its high grade, base metal VMS mineralization (copper and zinc), successful assays from every area of the district tested to date have reported excellent gold and silver values! The high gold and silver values at Mirdita have exceeded expectations and have firmly established the Mirdita District as a potential new source of world gold supply.
"We are taking the discovery of these gold and silver values very seriously," quotes CEO Bryan Slusarchuk. "The property has a great history of mining high grade copper, but the precious metals extracted were never disclosed. Results to date have exceeded our expectations and I believe it is important that it is reflected in our positioning in the marketplace."
Deadline for submission is December 15th, 2008 and the winning slogan will be announced on the company's website January 15th, 2009. Five (5) ounces of gold will be delivered to the entrant who submits the selected slogan.
