VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - Corex Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGE) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 20,000 m Diamond drill program on the Santana Property located in Sonora State, Mexico. The company has awarded the drill contract to GDA Servicios Mineros SA de CV. a Mexican subsidiary of Guiñez Ingenieria Ltda. headquartered in Antofagasta, Chile.

The Santana property covers 8,000 hectares and is located approximately 200 kilometers east-southeast of Hermosillo within the mineral rich, Sierra Madre Occidental gold-silver, copper porphyry belt, which is in the general area as the Mulatos mine of Alamos Gold Inc., (approx. 50 km northeast of Santana), the Dolores mine of Minefinders Corp Ltd., (approx. 105 km northeast of Santana) and the Ocampo mine of Gammon Gold Inc. (approx. 76 km east-south-east of Santana). Santana offers gold-silver and copper targets in a district scale setting, offering the potential to host substantial precious and base metal resources.

The drill program is targeting excellent results received from the 2009-2010 Reverse Circulation and Diamond drill programs. The 20,000 m of drilling in 2011 will build out on already identified zones along strike and down-dip, test newly identified gold zones and to test deep lying targets. Some of 2009-2010 drill highlights which will be tested along strike and down-dip include:

  • S10-079D which returned 89.23 m of 1.16 g/t Au including 8.5m of 3.48 g/t Au and 53.9 m of 1.78 g/t Au.
  • S10-083D which returned 87 m of 1.04 g/t Au including 28.6 m of 2.16 g/t Au.
