Cap-Ex Intersects 29% Iron Over 216 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2012) - Cap-Ex Ventures Ltd (TSX VENTURE:CEV)(OTCQX:CPXVF)(FRANKFURT:X0V) ("Cap-Ex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the first set of assay results from its on-going drill program within the Greenbush Zone, located on its wholly-owned Block 103 property in western Labrador. Twelve holes intersected intervals ranging from 64.0 to 216.4 metres of 26.7% to 30.2% total iron all on a single, 2,050 metre long drill line (A - A'). Three of these holes were terminated within mineralized zones, including drill hole DDH103-81 which was drilled to a depth of 354 meters. The program, which began at the end of April, has focused on the Greenbush Zone with the goal of outlining an initial National Instrument (NI) 43-101 mineral resource estimate by the end of 2012.

"We are extremely pleased with this first set of assay results from the first line of our 2012 drill program as they confirm the grades and thicknesses we identified in our preliminary drilling last year," stated Francois Laurin, President and CEO of Cap-Ex. "We are also continuing to intersect consistent thicknesses of iron mineralization on our third line, located just over one kilometre southeast of line one, which supports our confidence in the incredible potential of Block 103."

True widths of the reported intercepts above vary depending on the angle of the individual drill holes and are estimated to be between 70% and 100% of the core interval as reported. All samples were prepared from split BTW-sized half-core sections on-site in Labrador. Split drill core samples have been sent to independent contractor Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver, BC for analyses. Total iron analysis is performed using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and the magnetic component is determined by Satmagan magnetic analysis. FeO titration analysis permits an estimation of hematite. Standards, blanks, and duplicate assays are included at regular intervals in each sample batch submitted from the field as part of an ongoing Quality Assurance/Quality Control program.

To date, Cap-Ex has four diamond drill rigs operating on the Block 103 property, which have now completed approximately 14,000 metres of a minimum 15,000 metres of drilling planned for this year.

The results of the current drill program will be used for an initial National Instrument (NI) 43-101 mineral resource estimate on a portion of the Greenbush Zone located within the Block 103 property, planned to be released by the end of 2012. The Company intends to follow the completion of the NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate with a Preliminary Economic Assessment, planned for release in the first quarter of 2013.

About the Block 103 Project

The Block 103 Iron Ore Project is located in western Labrador and covers roughly 20,000 hectares within the Labrador Trough, approximately 30 km northwest of Schefferville Quebec. Two distinct zones of magnetite mineralization, the Greenbush Zone and the Northwest Zone, were identified on the property as a result of a 6,000 metre drilling campaign conducted in 2011. Mineralization was consistently encountered at shallow depths with thicknesses of up to 260 metres. Laboratory analysis of the samples collected during this 2011 program revealed very consistent grades of mineralization ranging from 28.5% to 34.6 % Total Fe. Sample processing and assaying in 2011 was executed by SGS Canada Labs in Lakefield, ON, using XRF, Satmagan and Davis tube techniques.
