MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2013) - OREX EXPLORATION INC. (TSX VENTURE:OX) (the "Company") announces that we have appointed MineTech International Limited ("MineTech"), the well-regarded firm of engineering and geological consultants to carry out a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on the Company's wholly owned Goldboro project in Guysborough Country, Nova Scotia.

Commenting on this development, Willie McLucas, President and CEO said: "This appointment follows on from the publication of the NI 43-101 compliant resource in February 2013, which reported, using a cut-off grade of 2 g/pt, an updated mineral resource of 465,000 ounces Au (2,589,000 tonnes grading 5.59 g/t gold) in the Measured and Indicated categories and a further 421,100 ounces Au (2,543,000 tonnes grading 5.15 g/t gold) in the Inferred category. The appointment of MineTech is the next logical step in order to continue to progress the development of our flagship Goldboro project in Nova Scotia. We hope to receive the report from Minetech before the end of the calendar year and the results of PEA will be announced to the market as soon as practicable."
