At that time the stock will cease trading on the venture exchange.

"The company seeks to utilize innovative royalty stream funding models for precious-metal-asset-backed cryptotokens, trading and clearing on the Ethereum blockchain, for the purposes of funding gold and silver exploration and mine development," said David Vincent, the firm's chief executive.

"To effectively develop and then to deploy these new technologies and transformative market financing models, the company should be listed on an exchange that welcomes and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation.

"The CSE meets these criteria, which is clearly demonstrated by its recent initiative, to develop Canada's first platform for clearing and settling securities using blockchain technology."

Vincent also noted that the CSE had a very competitive and attractive "cost structure" compared to the venture exchange.

"Shareholders of the company should see considerable benefits resulting from this decision, both in the near term and in the longer term, he added.

Canamex is said to be is moving towards become the first company to issue a crypto-token backed by gold, and from its own project in Nevada no less. 

The team is also looking at working with other companies in or near production to help them finance with crypto-token gold and silver royalty streams, instead of traditional debt and/or equity financing.

Shares were unchanged at C$0.12.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Gold: Gold-backed tokens start this company’s cryptocurrency revolution ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/192702/canamex-gold-gold-backed-tokens-start-this-companys-cryptocurrency-revolution-192702.html Cryptocurrencies remain a hot topic in financial markets in the opening quarter of 2018, and Canamex Gold Corp. (CSQ) is moving to become the first company to issue a crypto-token backed by gold, and from its own project in Nevada no less.  The team is also looking at working with other companies in or near production to help them finance with crypto-token gold and silver royalty streams, instead of traditional debt and/or equity financing.

It is a new concept and takes some explaining, but the potential to eliminate further dilution for equity holders and create new models for valuation is both vast and fascinating.  Canamex Gold Corp. Chief Executive Officer David Vincent recently gave Proactive Investors a look inside this new funding paradigm.

Canamex Gold Corp. is literally taking currency back onto a gold standard with the introduction of its gold-backed token with an offering currently underway.  We’ll get to your pioneering business structure in just a moment, but first, the Bruner gold project underlies the token.  Tell us about Bruner and the plans there.

We’ve got Bruner to the stage where we need to complete the engineering studies, the environmental permitting and then we should essentially be at the Preliminary Feasibility Study stage, for a mine financing decision.  We hope to be at that point around the fourth quarter of this year.  At that time, we will make a funding decision to construct the operation.

The intention is to use the crypto-token model as the funding mechanism for the mine construction, which means it would be a non-dilutive financing for shareholders.  So instead of doing a traditional equity and/or debt financing, we’ll be doing a crypto-token financing, backed by a gold royalty stream off the project

It’s a win-win situation for shareholders and for token holders.  Token holders will be buying the tokens at a significant discount to the spot gold price, and the tokens will be tradeable on the Ethereum blockchain, potentially at a significant premium to their issue price, including a speculative premium that we can’t define until it’s actually trading.

This is a pioneering concept and has not been done by anyone else to my knowledge.  Where did the idea come from?

It came from looking at gold streaming royalty models, which traditionally is an agreement between two parties: one is the project owner and the other is the royalty buyer.  Royalty buyers include such companies as Franco Nevada, Silver Wheaton Precious Metals and Royal Gold.

Our concept is to take a gold royalty on the Bruner property, which has a small portion of the PEA defined resource, and tokenize it.  Instead of the royalty being purchased by one party, it is purchased by many parties who hold the tokens and these will then have liquidity on the Ethereum blockchain.

You announced an offering earlier this month for US$5 million.  Are you at liberty to give us some insight on how that is going?

It is going very well.  There is a lot of interest, particularly out of the United States and Europe.  We are receiving application forms and cheques.  We’ll keep the private placement offering open until the full amount is raised and then launch a pre-ITO (Initial Token Offering) on the back of it.

The advantage of coming in on the token offering now is that the buyers get a priority allocation into the pre-ITO  at a discount.

For those new to the cryptocurrency world and the concept of this offering, can you walk us through the steps?  An investor commits to the current private placement offering and you are talking about an ITO.  How do the two fit together?

They are similar in many respects.  The current private placement offering is more of a traditional financing mechanism under the current regulations and instead of being issued gold royalty crypto-tokens they will be issued a gold royalty token certificate.  The names and details will be held in a register.  Then the difference with the ITO is that the certificates can be converted to crypto-tokens at a price discount into the pre-ITO, and then they become tradeable on the Ethereum blockchain.  And at that point the tokens have liquidity.

So, chronologically, you close the offering and then there is an ITO.  What happens next, and what will you use the proceeds for?

The intention is to close the offering and go into pre-ITO, which would be priced accordingly and dependent on the spot price of gold at the time.  But again, the pre-ITO offer price will be at a significant discount to the spot price.  Looking at the monthly price chart of gold it appears very bullish.  We expect that the price of gold could be over $1,400 an ounce in two or three months, then it means the pre-ITO price would be higher than the current private placement offering.  Perhaps 10% higher.  So, coming in now has distinct early mover advantages.

The funds from the private placement and pre-ITO will be used to fund the company for the balance of this year to get to the mine financing stage in Q4.  We may not do the main ITO until the third quarter.  The advantage is that by that time we will know what the speculative premium is for these tokens on the blockchain, and then we can price the tokens according to the market price, and not the spot gold price.  If there is a significant speculative premium the price of the tokens in the ITO won’t be anywhere near the levels we are offering in this private placement.  Investors coming into the current placement are coming in at what could prove to be a very low price.

The work you have done on the token to date affords you rights to do this for other asset owners, does it not?

Correct.  We are looking at a number of possible business models.  We might set up a subsidiary newco, for example, that becomes like a royalty company and it raises capital via crypto-token issues.  It might have a number of royalty streams in North America and other safe jurisdictions and the capital raised to purchase those royalties would be via crypto-token issues, backed by the gold and silver royalty streams.

We’ve already deployed six exclusive token names on Ethereum.  They have been deployed but not issued yet.  So, we could use those tokens to fund additional royalties in the future through a royalty aggregation model.

You are also a highly respected technical analyst of financial markets.  What do you see for gold, and why?

I look at long-wave analysis and currently we are in what is called a fifth K-wave, which is a Kondratieff wave.  K-waves last 60 years, so we are on the fifth one of the last 300 years.  This wave should peak in 2027, which is where I expect this current gold bull cycle to start topping out.  We should see a mid-cycle correction in 2023.  I suspect the price will move up toward the previous high of around $1,900 over the next five years, correct and then in the last part of the cycle into 2027 move much higher than $1,900.  Basically, a full-on bull market. The fifth wave of the fifth K wave, which should generate a big move higher.

And if you look at the fundamental background it is not good.  Interest rates have been too low for too long and there is lots of debt out there, much of which will not be paid back, so defaults are on the horizon.  Interest rates thus rise because of a global debt default scenario, where lenders demand a higher interest rate risk premium.  What’s this going to do to the gold price?

And silver is even more undervalued than gold.  Silver has greater leverage to the upside.  You could see Canamex launch a silver crypto-token before long, again using a royalty streaming model.

Aside from Bruner, are there any projects in the Canamex portfolio investors should be aware of?

We have the Silverton gold exploration project.  It has similar geology to Newmont’s Long Canyon in Nevada.  Long Canyon is a dolomite breccia.  Our geologist Greg Hahn, who has built three mines in his career, thinks Silverton has tremendous upside and part of the money raised in this placement will be used for an initial drill program on the Silverton project.

Any other insights from the intersection of cryptocurrencies and hard assets before we bring our discussion to a close?

Just that I think we have tremendous value inherent in Canamex Gold Corp.  We have three pillars to the business model: the Bruner gold development project, the Silverton gold exploration project and the cryptocurrency model for funding.  Based on our updated Preliminary Economic Assessment, which came out in January 2018, the net present value (NPV) at the current gold price of Bruner is about $1.60 per share, using the current shares on issue.  The stock trades at around $0.20, or an 88% discount to NPV.  Where are you going to find better value than this in the market?

<![CDATA[News - Canamex, Arizona Silver and other junior miners form Ethereum blockchain strategic alliance ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/192008/canamex-arizona-silver-and-other-junior-miners-form-ethereum-blockchain-strategic-alliance-192008.html Canamex Gold Corp (CVE:CSQ) has formed an Ethereum Blockchain Strategic Alliance for gold and silver asset-backed crypto-tokens with four other junior mining companies.

The other founding members of the alliance are Guyana Goldstrike Inc (CVE:GYA), Cabral Gold Ltd (CVE:CBR), Arizona Silver Exploration Inc (CVE:AZS) and Altamira Gold Corp (CVE:ALTA).

READ: Canamex now has six Ethereum token domain names secured

The five companies will work together on future offerings of crypto-tokens and potential future initial token offerings (ITOs).

These offerings may be backed by gold and/or silver forward delivery to help the five miners fund future exploration, feasibility studies and, further down the line, mine development and expansion.

Additional parties are also looking to join the alliance, Canamex said, with discussions currently underway.

At the end of 2017, the company told investors it had secured the exclusive rights to six Ethereum crypto-token domain names, ticker codes and associated smart contracts.

“The alliance seeks to utilise innovative gold and/or silver royalty stream funding models, for gold and/or silver asset backed crypto-tokens, trading and clearing on the Ethereum blockchain, for the purposes of funding gold and silver exploration and mine development, for the Alliance members,” said Canamex chief executive David Vincent.

“Interest in the blockchain technology, for secondary market trading and clearing is growing.

“For example, the Canadian Securities Exchange has recently unveiled plans to develop Canada’s first platform for clearing and settling securities using blockchain technology.”

Canamex shares were down 2.6% to C$0.18 shortly after midday on Wednesday.

<![CDATA[Media files - Canamex Gold goes crypto with gold royalty tokens ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/stocktube/8704/canamex-gold-goes-crypto-with-gold-royalty-tokens-8704.html Mon, 05 Feb 2018 15:06:00 -0500 http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/stocktube/8704/canamex-gold-goes-crypto-with-gold-royalty-tokens-8704.html <![CDATA[News - Canamex Gold announces offering of gold royalty tokens ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/191098/canamex-gold-announces-offering-of-gold-royalty-tokens-191098.html Canamex Gold Corp (CVE:CSQ) has announced a non-brokered private placement of gold royalty tokens.

One million tokens are being offered at 0. 005 ounces per unit for 5,000 ounces gold.

Each token is being offered at US$5 (C$6.25).

The minimum subscription is 200 tokens for US$1,000 or C$1,250.

The total offering will raise up to C$6.25mln for Canamex.

The gold royalty tokens are redeemable in lots of 200 for one fine ounce gold bar, fineness 99.99%, which is LBMA good delivery certified from a nominated LBMA accredited bullion house.

The gold royalty tokens have a term of 13 years, are non-transferable and will not be listed for trading on any traditional stock exchange, Canamex said.

The offering is effectively a royalty arrangement, so it is an obligation that is attached to Canamex's Bruner gold project. The royalty obligation will be registered against the Bruner property, Canamex said.

Importantly, Canamex stressed the gold royalty tokens will only pay out if there is production from Bruner. If the company (or its successors) fail to place Bruner into production within the next 13 years the tokens may have little or no value.

The tokens are illiquid as they cannot be resold, traded on a traditional stock exchange, or otherwise distributed or transferred by participants in this offering.

Canamex did a bit of arithmetic on behalf of those considering participating in the offering, noting that one token has a market value of US$6.75 or C$8.43, whereas the tokens are being offered at US$5/C$6.25.

The net proceeds of the offering will be used by the company to carry out the following:

1. Initial Crypto-Token Offering (ITO) Development Work: ITO development work, including developing the regulatory documentation, the ITO landing platform, the logistics and the processes to initiate and complete a planned ITO of gold and/or silver backed Crypto-Tokens, with smart contracts, deployed on the Ethereum blockchain during 2018. (Proceeds budgeted 10%).

2. Bruner Gold Development Project: Development work in 2018 to the mine financing stage, including finalising engineering design, optimising mining plan, complete environmental permitting, and various associated permitting work, based on the 2018 updated PEA recommendations. (Proceeds budgeted 70%).

3. Silverton Gold Exploration Project: Complete geochemistry and geophysics work, leading to defining and executing a drilling campaign in 2018. (Proceeds budgeted 20%).

Canamex said gold royalty token holders may be offered a priority allocation into any ITO, where any is conducted by the company in 2018, by offering the token holders conversion of their tokens to crypto-tokens deployed on the Ethereum blockchain, with a priority allocation in the ITO.

Canamex noted it is “not undertaking any current ITO right now”.

Any crypto-tokens may be tradeable on the Ethereum blockchain. 

Shares in Canamex on Monday are at C$0.18 each.

His appointment brings significant depth of experience and legal skills, of international currency systems and of Global Mint operations, having been the legal counsel for the Royal Canadian Mint for a long period, said David Vincent, chief executive at Canamex.

"His background complements the new direction of the company, relating to its planned Ethereum Crypto-Token Offering (CTO) development work, including developing the regulatory and legal documentation requirements, to undertake a CTO.

"Furthermore, Guy's experience on the board of directors of the Royal Canadian Mint should assist with developing the physical delivery logistics with any CTO of Gold and Silver crypto-tokens, with smart contracts, on the Ethereum blockchain during 2018."

He has extensive experience in arbitration, negotiation and mediation, nationally and internationally, in many areas of business and the public sector and has acted as counsel in commercial arbitration, both nationally and internationally, the firm added.

He sits on the board of many public and private companies.

WATCH: Canamex Gold makes move into cryptocurrency with Harmonychain deal

Last month, Canamex shares jumped 45% after the mine developer branched into crypto-currency, which could transform the way the business and its projects are financed.

It inked 'terms of agreement' with Harmonychain, a Norwegian fintech company.

The pair will “consider the issues around” an initial coin offering potentially backed by gold or silver, using Ethereum blockchain technology.

The report is based on an open pit scenario, which allows for a ten year operation with an after tax value of US$69.6mln with a 5% discount rate.

The average annual production would be 42,500 ounces of gold and 44,250 ounces of silver, with a low pay-back period of 1.65 years at $US 1,280an ounce of gold.

There would be low initial capital expenditures of US$37.81mln, the report showed,  including contingency of US$ 4.8 million, not including US$ 6.8mln of working capital.

The internal rate of return (IRR)  is 31% at US$1,280 per ounce gold price and 51.5% at US$ 1,500 per ounce of gold.

"Completion of this updated PEA significantly advances the Bruner Gold Project," said Greg Hahn.

"This updated PEA extends the life of the conceptual mine life from six to eight years and adds 93,000 ounces of indicated resources of gold and 826,000 ounces of indicated resources of silver to the resources referenced in the previous 2016 PEA," he added.

"It also tightens the capital and operating cost estimates by reference to recently experienced actual costs on another gold development project in Nevada.

"I believe we will be able to move the Bruner Gold project forward into permitting and development on the strength of this positive PEA.

"The project includes the fundamental elements we consider important to investors when building a mine, including low capital and operating costs, and an attractive rate of return in the current price environment. We can now move ahead with permitting and engineering the project for development."

READ - Canamex Gold shares surge 45% after it agrees pioneering crypto-currency deal

The 2016 PEA also put the capital payback period at 15 months.

The latest report assumes contract mining, using average rates for similar sized projects in Nevada.

Notably, Canamex said there was considerable room for improving unit costs by properly engineering and quantifying haul road distances and grades and considering owner operated mining in further studies.

As a caveat, the firm noted there was no certainty that this PEA will be realized and that mineral resources  that are not reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Canamex Gold shares added 2.33% to stand at C$0.22 each.

A further seven lode mining claims covering 140 acres have been staked to protect extensions to mineralization evident from an  initial look at the acquired project database.

The geochemical database also showed many other gold values from 1.0 g/t to 16.13 g/t (grams per ton) gold that have never been drill tested.

These have become priority exploration targets, where the company will undertake detailed mapping and sampling this coming spring, with the objective of defining a drilling program to test the best of these targets during 2018, said Canamex.

At the Bruner gold development project in Nevada, the updated PEA (preliminary economic assessment) is nearing completion, the firm added.

The results are likely to be reported in early January, 2018 with the 43-101 technical report following within 45 days afterwards.

Also at Bruner, drilling has started on a water well on the access road where the firm has obtained a water right for up to 350 gallons per minute of water for drilling fluid and future mineral processing.

The Nevada Division of Water Resources has extended the water-right application through December, 2018, to allow for completion of this well.

Canamex Gold is fast-tracking toward development of the Bruner gold project in the prolific gold jurisdiction of Nye county, where there are several producing and past-producing mines along the Walker Lane trend.

Earlier this month, shares surged as the group branched out into crypto-currency  –  a move that could transform the way the business and its projects are financed.

Shares in Toronto today added 2.44% to C$0.21 each.

An addendum has been signed between the two in regard to six token domain names, and ticker codes.

It means Canamex now has the rights to use any of these six exclusive token domain names for any future token offering, if any of them are completed successfully by December 31, 2018.

Gold sector:

GOLDUSA (ticker GUSA) GOLD United States

GOLD10Y (ticker G10Y) GOLD 10 Years

GOLD30Y (ticker G30Y) GOLD 30 Years

Silver sector

SILVERUSA (ticker SUSA) SILVER United States

SILVER10Y (ticker S10Y) SILVER 10 Years

SILVER30Y (ticker S30Y) SILVER 30 Years

These six domains are covered by Harmonychain AS patents pending Bether (better asset-backed ether system) a commodity asset backed future with call, based on blockchain technology.

Notably, as Canamex is still in the development phase with its Bruner gold project and in exploration phase with its Silverton gold property, also in Nevada, and has yet to produce any gold or silver or other resources, a token offering linked to the production of such mineral resources will be speculative and there is no definitive time horizon in which commercial production of such resources will commence.

Canamex completed a positive PEA (preliminary economic assessment) n the Bruner gold project in April, 2016.

Based on additional drilling conducted on the property, the company has requested a new PEA and resource estimate, expected to be completed before the end of 2017.

Canamex shares eased 4% to C$0.24 in Toronto.

It has signed 'terms of agreement' with Harmonychain, a Norwegian fintech company. The pair will “consider the issues around” an initial coin offering potentially backed by GOLD or silver using Ethereum blockchain technology.

"The new paradigm of secure digital currencies and tokens opens up a new opportunity for Canamex, as a potential alternative means of doing financings,” said chief executive David Vincent.

“We believe that this concept could be a first for the industry.

“One of the great benefits with raising capital via this concept, is that there could be minimal dilution for the  shareholders, in addition to the benefits of transparency, the potential asset backing of the tokens and it  being attractive compared to traditional debt or equity financings."

GOLD and GUS

Canamex, which owns the Nevada-based Bruner GOLD project and Silverton GOLD property, has exclusive rights to use the GOLD, GUS (GOLD United States) and SUS (silver United States) symbols.

It is in exalted company by taking the first baby steps in the world of crypto-currency.

BP (LON:BP.), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and JP Morgan (NYSE:JPM) are part of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, where members are also considering the range of possibilities that the new digital world of currencies provides companies.

The news emerged as the cost of a single Bitcoin, the most well-known and widely traded crypto-currency, smashed through the US$16,000 mark.  This time last year the price was below US$800.

There have been significant developments in token and blockchain-based technology. It can provide a fast and secure transaction structure with a verifiable, publicly available audit trail.

Asset-backed tokens

Tokens such as the one being mooted by Canamex, that are backed by metal resources, would increase the security and trust, the firm said in a statement.

It added:  “The company and Harmonychain intend to explore the issue of asset-backed tokens which are backed by metal resources; currently GOLD and silver, and products derived thereof.

“The Tokens would be based on the Ethereum blockchain technology platform and the Tokens could be exchangeable into the physical product,  using Ethereum smart contracts.

“The tokens may accordingly be used as an alternative tool for investors who are looking for gold and silver exposure or hedging or investors who simply want exposure in digital tokens which have the security of the underlying value of hard assets (as opposed to Bitcoin and other un-backed crypto currencies).”

In morning trade, Canamex shares were changing hands for 17.5 cents, up 5.5 cents.

Canamex has purchased Patriot Gold's 30% working interest in the Bruner gold/silver mine for US$1 million in cash.

Patriot retains a 2% net smelter return (NSR) royalty on the Bruner properties, including any claims acquired within a two-mile area of interest around the existing claims.

Additionally, Canamex has the option to buy down half of the Patriot NSR for US$5mln in the next five years.

Canamex's chief executive Mark Billings told investors:  "This acquisition consolidates our 100-per-cent ownership stake in the greater Bruner property, and offers our shareholders greater leverage to the exploration upside on the property and an increase in the price of gold."

Meanwhile Patriot Gold's chairman Bob Coale, said: "Consolidation of Patriot's interest in the Bruner project exemplifies our corporate mission of finding partners to develop our projects while maintaining an interest in the properties through net smelter returns.

"We are looking forward to the continued success of the Bruner gold project."

<![CDATA[News - Canamex climbs on new subsurface water right for Bruner property ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/105073/canamex-climbs-on-new-subsurface-water-right-for-bruner-property-59285.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) shares shot up after the company said that the Nevada Division of Water Resources has granted it a subsurface water right for its Bruner gold project in the state.

The water right application, which was submitted last April, was approved by Nevada's State Engineer, with the company now having a water right for mining purposes for 0.78 cubic feet per second on the west side of Bruner.

This combines with the 0.10 cubic feet per second which came with the patented ground and the well location on the east side of the property, said Canamex, thus providing a total of 400 gallons per minute of beneficial use for mining purposes.

The company said this should be enough water for the development of up to an 8,000 tonne per day initial heap leach operation.

"The issuance of sufficient water rights for an initial heap leach operation at Bruner follows the company's plan of anticipating development needs for the project and paralleling resource development and project development to facilitate moving the project forward expeditiously at the appropriate time," said president and COO Greg Hahn.

In order to perfect the water right, the company has to complete a well at the permitted location by December 30, 2016, and then place the well into beneficial use by the end of 2017.

Canamex said it will soon begin permitting for a well site to go with the new water right. Meanwhile, the junior explorer is also progressing with its maiden resource report for the property, which is expected by the end of the first quarter.

The report is anticipated to cover resources at the historic area, as well as those at the new Penelas East discovery and the Paymaster zone.

Shares jumped over 13 percent to 17 Canadian cents on Thursday.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex plans further drilling at Bruner, maiden resource expected in Q1 ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/104958/canamex-plans-further-drilling-at-bruner-maiden-resource-expected-in-q1-59152.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled the final core drilling results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada, showcasing the exploration potential of both the historic resource and Penelas East areas at the site, the company said.

At the Penelas East discovery area, core drilling at the northern extension intersected gold across a 51.8 metre interval in the last drill hole of 2014. The hole, B-1454C, intercepted 51.8 metres grading 0.444 grams per tonne (g/t) gold.

The hole is about 37 metres along strike of the previous intercept reported last October, which returned 22.9 metres of 3.29 g/t gold.

The company said further drilling is necessary, and that the area remains open to the north, with follow-up drilling planned for this year to determine whether deeper intercepts can be extended 100 metres northward.

Meanwhile, at the historic resource area of the project, drilling at the  northeast extension returned 32.1 metres of gold grading 0.339 g/t. Canamex said there is "considerable potential" to expand the resource further north, on patented claims.

This will be focus of a proposed drilling program for this year, it added.

"The last drill holes of the 2014 drilling program demonstrate the exploration potential of both the Penelas East and the historic resource area as they remain open to the north," said president Greg Hahn.

"We will propose drilling programs in both resource areas in 2015 to continue to pursue these possible extensions."

In the meantime, the company has delivered its 2014 data to an independent engineer who is in the process of preparing a resource estimate for the property, with results of the maiden report expected in the first quarter of this year.

Canamex shares closed at 14.5 cents on Wednesday. The stock has more than doubled over the last year.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources to produce resource estimate for Bruner following 2014 results ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/104926/canamex-resources-to-produce-resource-estimate-for-bruner-following-2014-results-59115.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) said it will soon release the final results of its 2014 drilling campaign at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, saying it is "very encouraged" by the progress seen to date.

The company, in a statement released today, said it believes there is now sufficient data to produce an NI 43-101 compliant technical report, including a mineral resource estimate. Work has already begun on a technical report, and is expected to be completed in the first quarter.

Following this, Canamex will make a decision on the appropriate next steps at the site.

Since Canamex has been involved in Bruner in 2010, it has drilled 149 core and reverse circulation holes, totaling some 26 km of drilling.

The 2014 campaign was designed to follow up on the success of drill hole B-1340 at the historic resource area of the project, which intersected 57.9 metres grading 5.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, and to continue drilling the northern extension of the Penelas East discovery.

The majority of the drilling conducted last year was focused on the historic resource area, where 27 reverse circulation holes and 10 core holes were drilled.

Canamex also owns 100 percent of the Aranka North gold project in Guyana, where it announced the completion of an NI 43-101 compliant technical report last October, which recommended a $500,000 diamond drilling program to test the heart of the gold anomaly.

"While Canamex is encouraged about the potential of the Aranka North Property, the near-term focus of the company will be the Bruner Gold Project," it said.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex appoints financial advisory specialist Michael Pesner to its board ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/104735/canamex-appoints-financial-advisory-specialist-michael-pesner-to-its-board-58864.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has appointed Michael Pesner to its board of directors, effective immediately. 

Pesner is currently the president of Hermitage Canada Finance Inc., a firm specializing in financial advisory services, including M&A, divestitures and restructuring. He spent 26 years as a partner at KPMG and predecessor firms, Canamex said, and currently sits on the board of several resource companies, including Richmont Mines, Quest Rare Minerals and Alexandria Minerals.

"As an accomplished professional in the areas of finance and accounting, Michael brings a wealth of experience to the board of Canamex, as we move forward with our Bruner Gold Project in Nye County, Nevada," said chief executive officer Mark Billings.

Last month, Canamex said it uncovered a new gold zone at the Paymaster target area on its Bruner gold project, as part of an ongoing reverse circulation drilling program. Of the highlights, hole B-1457 intersected 16.7 metres of 9.94 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, while hole B-1460 hit 7.6 metres grading 9.98 g/t gold. 

The gold explorer will continue to drill this target area next year. Earlier in November, Canamex appointed chairman Billings as its new chief executive officer, replacing interim CEO Hahn, who took over the role when previous chief executive Bob Kramer passed away in May. 

Billings was until recently a senior executive and director at Argex Titanium, a Montreal-based near-term producer of titanium oxide. He co-founded Argex in 2007.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex reveals new, under-explored gold zone at Paymaster target area ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/104234/canamex-reveals-new-under-explored-gold-zone-at-paymaster-target-area--58192.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has uncovered a new gold zone at the Paymaster target area on its Bruner gold project in Nevada, as part of an ongoing reverse circulation drilling program.

In the new area, drilling returned good grade gold mineralization in several drill holes, the company said.

Of the highlights, hole B-1457 intersected 16.7 metres of 9.94 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, while hole B-1460 hit 7.6 metres grading 9.98 g/t gold. 

Hole B-1458 intersected 13.1 metres of 5.13 g/t gold.

The gold-bearing area at the Paymaster target appears to be relatively flat-lying, Canamex said, and is a geologic environment that has been rarely tested before on the property.

"The discovery of numerous high grade intercepts at the Paymaster target area is very encouraging for the future expansion of the resources at the Bruner Project," said president and chief operating officer, Greg Hahn.

"The Paymaster target area was identified from underground channel sampling by previous companies exploring the Bruner property in the 1980s, but never adequately drill tested.  

"Canamex attempted to open the previously reclaimed underground workings but found the workings to be caved and inaccessible.  Drilling was the only option for testing the zone of high grade historical underground sampling, and the results verify the presence of attractive gold grades in an area on patented (private) land that lies immediately adjacent to the site the company is entertaining for development of a leach pad for the project."

The gold explorer will continue to drill this target area next year, the company said.

On Thursday, Canamex appointed chairman Mark Billings as its new chief executive officer, replacing interim CEO Hahn, who took over the role when previous chief executive Bob Kramer passed away in May. 

Billings was until recently a senior executive and director at Argex Titanium, a Montreal-based near-term producer of titanium oxide. He co-founded Argex in 2007.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources welcomes Mark Billings as new CEO ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/104189/canamex-resources-welcomes-mark-billings-as-new-ceo-58136.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has appointed chairman Mark Billings as its new chief executive officer, effective immediately. 

Billings will remain chairman of the company, and Greg Hahn, who has served as interim president and CEO, will remain president of Canamex.

Hahn took over the role in May, when previous chief executive Bob Kramer passed away suddenly.

Canamex said Billings has been a director of the company since 2009, and is familiar with both its Bruner gold project in Nevada and the Aranka North gold property in Guyana.

Billings was until recently a senior executive and director at Argex Titanium, a Montreal-based near-term producer of titanium oxide. He co-founded Argex in 2007.

He has also been a director for a number of other junior resource companies, and from 2004 to 2006, was VP of corporate finance for Desjardins Securities.

"I firmly believe that we are sitting on a great opportunity in Nevada with our Bruner Gold Project in Nye County," said Billings.

"As the 2014 drilling campaign is winding down, our team is eager to move towards completing an NI 43-101-compliant mineral resource estimate, which we hope to share with our shareholders and the investing public in early 2015. 

"This report will set the stage for moving the Bruner Gold Project closer to production."

Earlier this month, Canamex intersected more near-surface gold at the northeast end of the historic resource area at Bruner. Of the highlights from the reverse circulation drilling was a shallow high grade intercept, which intersected 1.5 metres grading 14.4 grams per tone (g/t) gold from 6.1 to 7.6 metres in hole B-1444.  This hole, when re-tested from a larger pulp, returned 29 g/t gold.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex returns more high grade gold at northeast end of Bruner's historic resource area ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/103962/canamex-returns-more-high-grade-gold-at-northeast-end-of-bruners-historic-resource-area-57830.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) said it has intersected more near-surface gold at the northeast end of the historic resource area at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, after returning more drilling results from its ongoing program.

Of the highlights from the reverse circulation drilling is a shallow high grade intercept, Canamex said, which intersected 1.5 metres grading 14.4 grams per tone (g/t) gold from 6.1 to 7.6 metres in hole B-1444. This hole, when re-tested from a larger pulp, returned 29 g/t gold, according to the Vancouver, BC-based company's statement.

The junior gold explorer said this suggests there is particulate gold in this intercept. 

Further down the hole, the company intersected a lower grade interval from 36.8 to 77.7 metres grading 0.477 g/t gold. 

According to Canamex, the hole is the most northern of its drill pattern, with the gold found still open to the north. The company has moved its drill to the adjacent site about 30 metres to the north of the intercept in hole B-1444 to see if it can intersect the entire high grade interval in a fence of holes, it said.

Once drilling has been completed at Bruner, the company will compile all the results for the preparation of a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate. The resource estimate is expected by the first quarter of next year, Canamex said.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex technical report on Aranka North project advises $500,000 drilling program ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/103934/canamex-technical-report-on-aranka-north-project-advises-500000-drilling-program-57789.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has filed an NI 43-101 compliant technical report for its Aranka North gold project in Guyana, and says it recommends a $500,000 diamond drilling program to test the heart of the gold anomaly identified. 

The junior mineral explorer, in a statement released late Wednesday, said it is in discussions with several entities with regards to possibly funding the proposed campaign.

Located approximately 140 kilometres northwest of Guyana's capital, Georgetown, the Aranka North property consists of 98,057 acres in a region on trend with major gold discoveries by Guyana Goldfields at Aurora and Sulphur Rose/Aranka and Sandspring Resources at Toroparu.  

Canamex purchased airborne geophysical data on the asset when the property was acquired from GMV Minerals, with initial work identifying some 15 large anomalies, all of which measured 2 to 4 km long and 1 to 3 km wide. The company has since conducted an initial stream sediment sampling program from a total of 85 sample sites, which set the stage for a more intense program focused on the new 25-sq km priority target. 

Results from this latter program included anomalous gold with values ranging up to 12,234 ppb gold, Canamex said. The company then designed a grid soil sampling program focused on two key targets, the Camp Anomaly and the Ridge Anomaly, the last of which Canamex completed initial auger drilling on a total of 80 holes.

Earlier this month, Canamex again revealed high grade core drilling results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada, specifically in the Penelas East zone. The junior explorer drilled 22.9 metres grading 3.29 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 221.6 to 244.5 metres depth in core hole B-1446C.

Once drilling has been completed at Bruner, the company will compile all the results for the preparation of a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate. The resource estimate is expected by the first quarter of next year, Canamex said.

The junior explorer drilled 22.9 metres grading 3.29 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 221.6 to 244.5 metres depth in core hole B-1446C, according to the Vancouver, BC-based company's statement released earlier today.

The hole was drilled at the open northern extension of the Penelas East zone, Canamex said.

The intercept includes a 1.52 metre wide high grade interval grading 37.5 g/t gold, it added.

Several other zones were also intersected higher in the hole, with these intercepts at the far northern end of drilling at the Penelas East discovery area. Canamex said the nearest neighbour hole to the north is over 100 metres away, meaning the area remains wide open to expansion in the north.

A second core hole was also drilled into the high grade target area, with results expected shortly, the company said.

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing a financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million. 

Once drilling has been completed, the junior gold explorer will compile all the results for the preparation of a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate. A site visit by a qualified person under NI 43-101 standards has already been completed in anticipation of receving all the data.

The resource estimate is expected by the first quarter of next year, Canamex said.

The company is also approaching the completion of its total expenditure commitment of $6 million to earn a 70 percent interest in the Bruner project, triggering a 70-30 joint venture with Patriot Gold Corp.

(CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled more results from its reverse circulation drilling program at its Bruner gold project in Nevada as it gets closer to achieving its goal of preparing a maiden resource estimate for the asset.

Of the highlights, the company returned 25.9 metres grading 2.37 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at the top of hole B-1437, which was drilled at the northern extension of the Penelas East zone.

Canamex said the discovery area remains wide open to the north for expansion, with the closest drill hole to the north over 100 metres away.

"We are impressed that the Penelas East mineral system remains robust at the northern end of our drilling to date, and may be increasing in strength northward," said president and interim chief executive officer Greg Hahn. 

"With continued drilling through the balance of the 2014 field season we will come very close to completing our total expenditure commitment of $6 million to earn a 70% interest in the Bruner Project, and thereby trigger a 70:30 joint venture with the underlying optionor, Patriot Gold Corp."

Earlier last month, Canamex said that follow-up sampling on high grade drill intervals at its Bruner project returned 40 percent higher gold grades than previously. The junior gold explorer is thus reviewing all the plus 3 g/t gold intercepts from its 2012-2014 drilling program, and requesting metallic screen assays where the previous fire assay data suggest there is a potential particulate gold issue.

The company issued a total of 7.26 million units at a price of 21 cents apiece, with each unit made up of one common share and one half of a share purchase warrant. Every warrant entitles the holder to buy one additional share at a price of 30 cents, for a period of two years. 

Canamex said the proceeds will be used for the exploration and development of its Bruner gold project in Nevada, as well as for general working capital.

Three company insiders, together with Hecla, directly or indirectly subscribed for a total of 3.93 million units in the financing.

"We are delighted that Hecla continues to support the company, as they add a wealth of experience in the gold exploration and mining sector, and we believe they share our vision for our flagship Bruner Gold Project," said president Greg Hahn.

Earlier last month, Canamex said that follow-up sampling on high grade drill intervals at its Bruner project returned 40 percent higher gold grades than previously.

The company found more visible gold this year in its drilling at the project than it has in the past, which prompted a review of its sample preparation and analytical procedures. In reverse circulation drill hole B-1430, the company decided to order metallic screen analyses on the high grade interval, after seeing visible gold from the reverse circulation drill cutting reject stream.

The metallic screen returned an average grade for the 3-metre interval tested of 20.25 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, compared to the original reported 14.33 g/t gold. The results confirmed, Canamex said, that the gold is not necessarily coarse, but is "particulate" and requires attention to sample preparation and assaying procedures.

The company said Thursday it has found more visible gold this year in its drilling at the project than it has in the past, which prompted a review of its sample preparation and analytical procedures.

In reverse circulation drill hole B-1430, the company decided to order metallic screen analyses on the high grade interval, after seeing visible gold from the reverse circulation drill cutting reject stream.

The metallic screen returned an average grade for the 3-metre interval tested of 20.25 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, compared to the original reported 14.33 g/t gold, according to the Vancouver, BC-based company's statement released earlier Thursday.

Shares increased 5 percent to 21 Canadian cents this morning, stretching year-to-date gains to more than triple, and just four cents shy of its 52-week high.

The results confirm, Canamex said, that the gold is not necessarily coarse, but is "particulate" and requires attention to sample preparation and assaying procedures to properly quantify the gold content of each drill interval containing visible gold.

The junior gold explorer is planning ro review all the plus 3 g/t gold intercepts from its 2012-2014 drilling program, and request metallic screen assays where the previous fire assay data suggest there is a potential particulate gold issue.

"We are excited by the appearance of visible gold in our drilling this year, and the implications this has for higher grade portions of the gold mineralized system at Bruner," said president and interim chief executive officer, Greg Hahn.

"We have a ways to go to define the high-grade zones and their dimensions and limits, but I am confident additional drilling in the remainder of 2014 will provide more encouragement for continued testing of these deeper higher-grade zones of the Bruner gold property."

Canamex said it will restart core drilling at Bruner to follow up on the high grade intercept found in reverse circulation drill hole B-1436, with further such drilling to depend on these results and its availability of funds.

Last month, the gold explorer reported high grade mineralization at the open northern extension of the Penelas East zone at Bruner. The company, which is advancing the Nevada property via a $1.75 million drilling campaign, reported reverse circulation drill hole B-1436 returned 9.1 metres grading 11.9 g/t gold at the bottom of the hole, from approximately 228 to 237 metres depth.

It said that the hole unfortunately bottomed out there, with the full extent of this mineralized zone remaining untested.

Earlier this week, the company also announced it is raising up to $1.5 million through a private placement financing, with the proceeds to be used for the exploration and development of Bruner.

The company plans to issue up to 7.14 million units at a price of 21 cents apiece, with each unit made up of one common share and one half of a share purchase warrant. Every warrant will entitle the holder to buy one additional share at a price of 30 cents, for a period of two years. 

Canamex said the proceeds will be used for the exploration and development of its Bruner gold project in Nevada, as well as for general working capital.

Three company insiders will be directly or indirectly participating in the private placement for a total of up to 952,382 units, according to Canamex's statement.

Last month, the gold explorer reported the latest drilling results from its Bruner gold project, which unveiled high grade mineralization at the open northern extension of the Penelas East zone.

The company, which is advancing the Nevada property via a $1.75 million drilling campaign this year, reported reverse circulation drill hole B-1436 returned 9.1 metres grading 11.9 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at the bottom of the hole, from approximately 228 to 237 metres depth.

Canamex said that the hole unfortunately bottomed out there, with the full extent of this mineralized zone remaining untested. The area will be the target of follow-up drilling, as it remains open to the west and north.

The newest results suggest the potential for a deeper, gold-bearing breccia body, Canamex said.

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex's latest drilling suggests presence of deeper, gold-bearing body at Bruner ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/102764/canamexs-latest-drilling-suggests-presence-of-deeper-gold-bearing-body-at-bruner-56091.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) (FSE:CX6) jumped more than 10 percent ahead of reporting the latest drilling results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada, which unveiled high grade mineralization at the open northern extension of the Penelas East zone.

The company, which is advancing the Nevada property via a $1.75 million drilling campaign this year, reported reverse circulation drill hole B-1436 returned 9.1 metres grading 11.9 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at the bottom of the hole, from approximately 228 to 237 metres depth.

Canamex said that the hole unfortunately bottomed out there, with the full extent of this mineralized zone remaining untested. The area will be the target of follow-up drilling, as it remains open to the west and north.

According to the Vancouver, BC-based company's statement, the rock type encompassing the high grade mineralization is similar to the host rock identified in previous drilling within the nearby Penelas East zone.

The newest results suggest the potential for a deeper, gold-bearing breccia body, Canamex said.

"We remain impressed by the diverse geologic environments where we are discovering gold on the Bruner Project," said president and chief executive, Greg Hahn.

"While this challenges our geologic team to understand the geology fully, it encourages us to continue drilling to fully flesh out the extent of these gold intercepts and the potential resources."

Other highlights from the latest drilling results included reverse circulation hole B-1433, which intersected 29 metres of 1.46 g/t gold at the old Penelas Mine target area, which is located about halfway between the historic resource area and the Penelas East zone.

The company said there are also results pending from six holes drilled in the historic resource area east zone. 

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. 

The junior explorer's shares rose more than 10 percent to 21.5 Canadian cents, before trading was halted at around 12:20pm ET in advance of the drilling results. Shares have since resumed trading.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources drills first hole to intersect the plane of Penelas Vein at historic depths ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/102388/canamex-resources-drills-first-hole-to-intersect-the-plane-of-penelas-vein-at-historic-depths-55572.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled more results from its Bruner gold project drilling program in Nevada, with the latest results hailing from the Penelas mine zone. 

The company told investors that reverse circulation drill hole B-1430, which was drilled roughly halfway between the historic resource area and the new discovery area at Penelas East, intersected 4.6 metres grading 11.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold within a wider zone of 19.8 metres grading 3.24 g/t gold.

This is the first drill hole to intersect the plane of the Penelas Vein structure at the depths where it was mined historically, Canamex said. The vein was the source of historic mining between 1929 and 1941, when it produced roughly 100,000 tons of material.

The newest drilling revealed visible gold in the cuttings of the Penelas Vein, according to Canamex's statement released earlier today.

Two additional holes were also drilled in the same structure at similar depths, with one of the holes, B-1433, also intersecting the vein from 720 to 735 feet. Samples from this intercept are currently in the lab, with results awaited, Canamex said.

The company will also plan further drilling on the vein once all of the data are evaluated.

Earlier this month, the junior gold explorer released drilling results which it said confirmed the presence of a higher grade zone that has yet to be properly quantified, in the East zone of the historic resource area. The East Zone area remains open along strike to the north and south and is largely untested by drilling, Canamex said, with work underway to assess the best access to drill stations to continue drilling the open extensions. 

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. 

The company said in May that both reverse circulation and core drilling results are pending from the Penelas East discovery area at the site.

Other drill holes reported Monday were also drilled in the plane of the section of hole B-1430, but they were much higher up the dip of the Penelas Vein structure, said the Canadian explorer.

<![CDATA[News - UPDATE: Canamex hits over 44 metres grading nearly 7 g/t gold at Bruner project; shares hit new 1-year high ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/102147/update-canamex-hits-over-44-metres-grading-nearly-7-gt-gold-at-bruner-project-shares-hit-new-1-year-high-55224.html ***Updated with the latest share price data at 9:58am ET***

Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has announced reverse circulation drilling results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada which the company says confirm the presence of a higher grade zone that has yet to be properly quantified. 

In a statement released early Monday, the junior explorer told investors that reverse circulation drill hole B-1425, which was drilled into the East Zone of the historic resource area, returned 44.2 metres grading 6.97 grams per tonne (g/t) gold. Within this zone was a high grade interval, from 18.3 to 25.9 metres, which graded 27.91 g/t gold and 327.3 g/t silver, the company said.

This hole, along with others reported Monday that were also drilled into the East Zone of the historic area, confirm there is a higher grade zone that needs to be properly drilled to include in a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, according to Canamex's statement. 

The East Zone area remains open along strike to the north and south and is largely untested by drilling, Canamex said, with work underway to assess the best access to drill stations to continue drilling the open extensions. 

Other holes reported in the East Zone today included hole B-1424, which returned 47.3 metres grading 3.44 g/t gold. 

On the section containing the holes reported, the East Zone is approximately 30.5 metres wide, 61 metres thick and lies within 20 feet of surface, Canamex said.

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. 

The company said in May that both reverse circulation and core drilling results are pending from the Penelas East discovery area at the site.

Canamex is also currently looking for ways to realize value for its Aranka North property in Guyana after issuing the final stage of share payments to GMV Minerals in late June, as per an option agreement signed in 2011. The company now has a 100% stake in the asset, which is currently on care and maintenance status, with Canamex curtailing field activities until further notice. 

Shares of the Canadian junior, which were halted Friday in advance of the news and resumed trading shortly after the announcement this morning, rallied over 23% in early deals to 17 cents, a new 52-week high.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex completes option on Aranka North for 100% stake as it assesses ways to realize value ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/102064/canamex-completes-option-on-aranka-north-for-100-stake-as-it-assesses-ways-to-realize-value-55104.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) said it has issued the final stage of share payments to GMV Minerals as per an option agreement on the Aranka North property in Guyana signed in 2011, giving the junior explorer a 100% stake in the asset.

The company said that on June 25, a total of 1.0 million common shares were issued to GMV, representing the last of three staged share payments that were required under the option and joint venture agreement. 

By securing 100% of the asset, the company said it will look for ways to realize value for the property that its management believes is not currently reflected in Canamex's share price. The project is currently on care and maintenance status, with Canamex curtailing field activities at the site until further notice.

The Aranka North property is spread across 98,000 acres in a propsective gold region in Guyana, and lies northeast of major gold discoveries by Guyana Goldfields at Aurora and Aranka/Sulphur Rose, according to Canamex's statement.

The company has found two prominent gold-in-soil anomalies at Aranka North, and completed a 120-hole power auger drilling program to define the geometry of the anomalies. 

Canamex was given the option to acquire up to 100% of Aranka North by making cash payments to GMV totaling US$520,628, spending US$1.0 million in exploration work before December 31, 2013 and issuing a total of 3.75 million shares to GMV, all  of which have now been issued.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex gets closer to quantifying historic resource at Bruner with latest results ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101986/canamex-gets-closer-to-quantifying-historic-resource-at-bruner-with-latest-results-55003.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled more drill results from the historic resource area at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, with the company saying the assays prove its theory that there is a higher grade interior zone within the region that has not yet been fully defined.

Of the highlights, the company said reverse circulation drill hole B-1419 intersected 53.4 metres grading 1.84 grams per tonne (g/t) gold within 89.9 metres grading 1.21 g/t gold. 

This hole connects mineralized intervals in two holes reported previously, Canamex said, with the cross section displaying the drill hole results showing the gold mineralized zone trends to surface above the reported intercepts. 

Hole B-1418, which intersected the mineralized zone about 75 feet below the reported intercept in hole B-1419, hit multiple zones of mineralization, the junior explorer said, totaling 76.2 metres at 0.82 g/t gold.

The main mineralized zone on the section that hosts these two holes is approximately 64 metres wide and 97.6 metres thick, Canamex said, and lies within 20 feet from surface. The area remains open along strike to the north, and is largely untested by drilling, it added. 

The company is now working to find the best access to drill stations to continue testing the northern extension of this mineralized zone. According to Canamex, the entire main mineralized zone lies at shallow depths below the surface, making it ideal for open pit mining. 

Once the drilling of this shallow zone is complete, the company said it should have enough detailed information to quantify the historic resource under NI 43-101 compliant standards. 

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. 

The company said late last month that both reverse circulation and core drilling results are pending from the Penelas East discovery area at the site.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources releases more drill results from historic area at Bruner, with goal of outlining initial resource ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101756/canamex-resources-releases-more-drill-results-from-historic-area-at-bruner-with-goal-of-outlining-initial-resource--54685.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled more results from reverse circulation drilling at the historic resource area of its Bruner gold project in Nevada, which confirm the company's view that there is a high grade interior zone within the region surrounded by a lower grade halo.

Of the highlights from the results reported Wednesday, the company drilled 47.3 metres of 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold within an interval of 114.3 metres grading 0.87 g/t gold.

The junior gold explorer said the intercept demonstrates that the gold zone at this location of the main mineralized area comes to surface. 

Other results reported include hole B-1415, which intersected multiple mineralized zones totaling 27.4 metres grading 0.49 g/t gold, and B-1417, which returned 70.12 metres grading 0.55 g/t. 

The company said that with ongoing drilling of the historic resource area, it is continuing to advance its understanding of the host geology and distribution of gold at Bruner, with the hopes of quantifying the historic resource under NI 43-101 standards after enough drilling has been completed.

According to Canamex's statement, the entire main mineralized zone lies at a very shallow depth below the surface, making it suitable for open pit mining.

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources intersects more high grades at historic area of Bruner project ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101595/canamex-resources-intersects-more-high-grades-at-historic-area-of-bruner-project-54480.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled more results from its drilling programs at the Bruner gold project in Nevada, saying these latest holes show that there are more high grade zones within the historic resource area at the site that have not been identified or sufficiently tested. 

Of the highlights, the company said reverse circulation drill hole B-1412 returned 6.1 metres of 11.24 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 203.975 g/t silver within 41.2 metres grading 2.078 g/t gold and 39.5 g/t silver. 

This hole is located about 75 feet from hole B-1404C which was reported last month, and shows the continuity of a high grade portion within the main mineralized zone of the historic resource area, Canamex said. 

It added that the latest intercept is "markedly more silver-rich" than previously completed drill holes in this area, and is indicative of potential gold-silver zoning within the deposit that remains to be quantified. 

Other drill results reported today include core hole B-1408C in the east mineralized zone, which intersected 21.3 metres grading 1.698 g/t gold. The junior gold explorer said additional drilling of this shallow mineralized area is in the planning stages. 

Canamex said Monday that these newest results show that continued drilling is needed to define these zones, which are "considerably higher in grade than the reported average grade of the historic resource area". 

The company is improving its understanding of the host geology in the historic area as well as the distribution of gold with ongoing drilling, which should allow Canamex to upgrade the historic resource to NI 43-101 compliant standards. 

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources climbs on core drill results from historic area at Bruner project ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101428/canamex-resources-climbs-on-core-drill-results-from-historic-area-at-bruner-project-54248.html Shares of Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) surged Wednesday after the gold explorer announced results from its core drilling program at the Bruner gold project in Nevada, including an intercept of 70.1 metres grading 3.17 grams per tonne (g/t) gold.

The intercept is from core hole B-1404C, which was drilled in the historic resource area of the project at nearly right angles to the interpreted strike of mineralization, the company said.

The intersection included an intercept of 1.5 metres grading a whopping 102 g/t gold.

The stock jumped to as high as 12 cents in Toronto today, just two cents shy of its 52-week high of 14 cents. 

The hole is the second best in the historic resource area following hole B-1340 in 2013, which returned 57.9 metres of 5.23 g/t gold.

Canamex said Wednesday that the two holes are about 100 feet from each other and indicate continuity of a high grade portion within this mineralized zone of the historic resource area.

The company is awaiting more results from between these two holes, which it hopes will further define the zone.

The junior gold explorer said the results support its interpretation that there are high grade zones within the historic resource area that have not been identified or sufficiently tested by historic drilling. It is planning to continue drilling to define these zones, which have "considerably higher" grades than the reported average for the area. 

"With ongoing drilling of this exciting mineralized zone, we continue to develop our understanding of the host geology, geometry and distribution of gold mineralization at Bruner, which should allow us to quantify the gold mineralized zones under NI 43-101 standards for reporting purposes after sufficient drilling has been completed," Canamex said in its release. 

Last week, the company announced the unexpected death of its chief executive Robert Kramer, a day later appointing president and COO Greg Hahn to fill the role in the interim.

Canamex began its 2014 drilling program at its Bruner project in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources appoints Hahn as interim CEO ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101297/canamex-resources-appoints-hahn-as-interim-ceo-54070.html Canamex Resources Corp (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has appointed Greg Hahn, president and COO, as the company's interim CEO following the unexpected death of prior chief executive Robert Kramer. 

The company said that Hahn will take Kramer's place in the role on an interim basis while Canamex begins a search for a new CEO. 

The board has already set up a search committee, chaired by Mike Stark. Canamex said Tuesday it has also appointed Mark Billings as non-executive chairman to its board.

"The Board and management are committed to continuing to pursue Bob Kramer's vision of the company and advance the Bruner gold project as one of the next near-term gold development projects in Nevada," the statement read. 

Canamex announced the sudden passing away of Kramer on Monday. "It is with unfathomable sorrow that we must advise of the sudden and unforeseen passing of our dear friend, colleague and leader, Robert Kramer, Chairman and CEO of the Company," the company said yesterday in a release.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex updates on drilling activity at Bruner ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/101175/canamex-updates-on-drilling-activity-at-bruner-53910.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) provided Tuesday an update on its Bruner gold project in Nevada, saying that core drilling is continuing at the historic resource area on site, with a reverse circulation rig to be moved to the zone once this is completed. 

Assay results for five core holes in the area are still pending, and will be reported as a unit so the results can be placed in an appropriate geological context, Canamex said.

Once the core drilling at the historic resource area is finished, the core drill will move to the Penelas East discovery area, and a core hole will be drilled to offset a significant intercept of gold found last year, which intersected 79.9 metres of 1.509 grams per tonne (g/t) gold.

Currently at Penelas East, there is a reverse circulation (RC) drill that began drill testing geophysical anomalies last month. So far, three reverse circulation holes have been completed, with the aim of testing two of the five untested anomalies. Assay results are pending on all of these drill holes, Canamex said.

The RC rig will move to the historic resource area once core drilling is completed there, and will continue to define the geometry and grade of the main mineralized zone. Further RC drilling at Penelas East will be determined once the first RC results are received.

The company said the RC rig gives it the ability to drill multiple inclinations from a single set up without having to physically move the drill rig, reducing the surface disturbance associated with exploration drilling and complying with permits. The rig is also an advantage given the tight drill sites it has available in steep terrain in the historic resource area of the Bruner property.

The junior gold explorer begun its 2014 drilling program at Bruner in early March, after closing the financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSEMKT:GORO) to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. The program is to be made up of roughly 1,000 metres of core drilling and 9,000 metres of reverse circulation drilling.

The announcement follows news earlier this year that Gold Resource Corp acquired 22.22 million shares of Canamex for nine cents apiece, giving Gold Resource a stake of 18.4% in the Nevada-focused company and making it the largest shareholder. 

The placement also gave Gold Resource Corp, which produces precious metals from its operations in Oaxaca, Mexico, the right to appoint one representative to Canamex's board of directors provided it holds more than 10% of the company. 

Canamex raised a total of $2.16 million from the private placement, which closed in February. Both Gold Resource Corp and insiders of the company participated in the offering, proceeds of which are going toward Canamex's Bruner gold project in Nevada.

"Jason has contributed to all aspects of Gold Resource's evolution from explorer to dividend paying precious metal producer, and is a welcome addition to the team as we continue to progress our Bruner Gold Project in Nye County, Nevada," said chairman and CEO Robert Kramer.

Reid was appointed Gold Resource Corp's CEO last October, and also serves as the company's president and director. He was appointed president in July 2010, and served as VP of corporate development from January 2008 to July 2010, and was named to the board in 2010. He was part of the team that took the company public in September 2006, transitioning it from an exploration stage business to the gold and silver dividend-paying producer it is today.

Earlier this month, Canamex said that diamond drilling of the five planned core holes in the historic resource area of its Bruner gold project is proceeding as planned, after which the rig will move towards the Penelas East discovery. Results from the first two holes are expected by the end of April or early May, Canamex said

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources says drilling on plan, first results expected shortly ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/100693/canamex-resources-says-drilling-on-plan-first-results-expected-shortly-53249.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) said Monday that diamond drilling of the five planned core holes in the historic resource area of its Bruner gold project is proceeding as planned, after which the rig will move towards the Penelas East discovery. 

The five core holes, in the historic resource area of the Nevada project, are planned to test the high grade feeder zone found in a drill hole last year. 

Of the three core holes drilled thus far, the company said one showed the Bruner project's similarity to the Rawhide Mine, which is 30 miles to the west of Bruner and was mined by Kennecott between the late 1980s and early 2000s, producing some 1.6 million ounces of gold. 

Results from the first two holes are expected by the end of April or early May, Canamex said.

"We are still trying to understand the geometry and gold distribution of the high-grade feeder zone of the historic resource area that we encountered in our first hole into the target (B-1340) drilled late in 2013," said president and COO, Greg Hahn, in a release Monday.

"Clearly we have further work to define the high-grade feeder zone and its dimensions and limits, but I am confident the drilling program designed for the first half of 2014 will succeed in characterizing the geometry, orientation, and grade of this portion of the historic resource area."

The company also expects a reverse circulation rig will arrive on site in mid-April to begin exploration drilling, it said. 

Last month, Canamex acquired more private land at its Bruner project, with an additional 20-acre patented Elk Lode mining claim.  The claim was found during some due diligence by the company, and lies nearly adjacent to the existing patented land package at Bruner. The company's private land position now totals some 500 acres, and includes the historic resource area at Bruner where drilling is currently underway in an effort to prepare a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource. 

Canamex begun its 2014 drilling program at Bruner in early March, after closing a financing to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. The program is to be made up of roughly 1,000 metres of core drilling and 9,000 metres of reverse circulation drilling.

(CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has acquired more private land at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, where a 53-hole drilling program is underway. 

The company told investors that the additional 20-acre patented Elk Lode mining claim was purchased to complement the patented and unpatented land covered in the option agreement under which Canamex is buying into the Bruner property.

"We are pleased to have concluded the purchase of the Elk Patent, which we have been pursuing for over six months, as it offers the company more flexibility as it contemplates how best to develop the property down the road," said president and COO Greg Hahn, in a release announcing the purchase on Monday. 

The claim was found during some due diligence by the company, and lies nearly adjacent to the existing patented land package at Bruner, Canamex said. 

The company's private land position now totals some 500 acres, and includes the historic resource area at Bruner where drilling is currently underway to provide updated drill hole data in an effort to prepare a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource. 

Canamex has already begun engineering studies on portions of the patented claim group, and said that once enough drilling is done to complete an initial resource estimate, it will be able to address permitting of the project for development. 

"We have initiated engineering studies on the Bruner property in parallel with drilling of the gold mineralization, in order to be in a position to advance the project rapidly in the event our drilling continues to be successful and financial markets and gold prices are favorable," said Hahn.

The junior gold explorer said that the first core hole at the historic resource area has already been finished, and delivered to a lab in Reno, with results to be reported after they have been analyzed. 

Canamex begun its 2014 drilling program at Bruner earlier this month, after recently closing a financing to raise upwards of $2 million, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete. The program is to be made up of roughly 1,000 metres of core drilling and 9,000 metres of reverse circulation drilling.

Aside from the historic resource area, drilling will also take place at the Penelas East target, which has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years. The company in December reported results from three core holes drilled at Penelas East, including 79.9 metres of 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold. The target still remains open to the north. 

The Bruner project is located about 45 miles northwest of the Round Mountain mine, which has produced over 10 million ounces of gold over a 30-year period.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources starts 10,000 metre drilling program at Bruner, fully funded ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/100223/canamex-resources-starts-10000-metre-drilling-program-at-bruner-fully-funded-52586.html After just closing a financing to raise upwards of $2 million, Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has begun its 2014 diamond drilling program at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, with expectations that the $1.75 million campaign will take about six months to complete, moving it further along its quest to develop a maiden resource for the property. 

The program will be made up of roughly 1,000 metres of core drilling and 9,000 metres of reverse circulation drilling. Core drilling will start with an offset of the last reverse circulation hole drilled last year, which penetrated the "feeder zone" of the historic resource, according to Canamex's statement, and intersected 57.9 metres of 5.23 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold. 

A total of five core holes and 24 reverse circulation holes are planned to test this high grade feeder zone in the historic resource area of the site, which has the potential to significantly boost the grade of any future NI 43-101  mineral resource estimate on the asset.

Meanwhile, drilling will also take place at the Penelas East area, which will focus on testing the gold-in-soil anomalies found that appear to be extensions of the current density anomaly that is coincident with the 38 gold-bearing drill hole intercepts completed in previous years. A total of 24 drill holes are planned for this region, which could further expand the size of the discovery, the company said.

The start-up of the 2014 program follows the closing of Canamex's $2.16 million private placement financing announced last month, which involved a strategic investment from Gold Resource Corp. The junior explorer said Friday that it believes it is sufficiently financed to carry out the drilling program.

“In the last week, we have announced closing of a $2 million+ private placement with NYSE MKT-listed strategic investor Gold Resource Corporation and commencement of a 10,000 metre drill program at our flagship Bruner Gold Project in Nye County, Nevada," said chairman and chief executive Robert Kramer in emailed comments on Friday.

"We have made significant progress in a difficult market, and believe we are poised for success in 2014," he added, with the company aiming to delineate its first NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate on the Bruner project.

Canamex earlier this year unveiled metallurgical test results that showed high gold extraction rates at both the historic and Penelas East deposit areas at the site, while column leach tests showed rapid gold extractions even from the lower grade portion of the historic resource region. The company in December also reported results from three core holes drilled at its Penelas East discovery, saying all the holes intersected long intervals of disseminated gold. Of the highlights, 79.9 metres of 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold was intersected. The Penelas East area has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years, with the target still remaining open to the north. 

"We are excited to be able to recommence drilling at the Bruner gold project and to follow-up on the exciting drill hole intercepts we encountered at both the historic resource area and the Penelas East discovery area in 2013," said president and COO Greg Hahn in a statement. 

The Bruner project is located about 45 miles northwest of the Round Mountain mine, which has produced over 10 million ounces of gold over a 30-year period.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources closes $2.16 mln financing, Gold Resource Corp becomes strategic investor ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/100108/canamex-resources-closes-216-mln-financing-gold-resource-corp-becomes-strategic-investor-52410.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) said Friday it has closed an equity financing with Gold Resource Corp (NYSE MKT:GORO) and various insiders of the company, priced at a "then-premium" to market. 

Gold Resource Corp acquired 22.22 million shares of Canamex, and insiders acquired an additional 1.77 million common shares, at a price of nine cents per share, which was then a 12.5% premium to the closing price on the day the agreement was reached. Shares of Canamex closed Thursday at 13 cents on the TSX Venture Exchange. 

Canamex said the total purchase price for 24 million shares was $2.16 million, with no warrants issued and no fees paid in connection with the financing. 

Proceeds will be used for the exploration and development of its Bruner gold project in Nevada, as well as for general working capital.

Gold Resource Corp, which produces precious metals from its operations in Oaxaca, Mexico,  now holds 18.4% of Canamex, and has the right to appoint one representative to Canamex's board of directors, provided it holds more than 10% of the company.

"We are delighted to welcome GRC as a strategic investor," said Canamex CEO Robert Kramer. 

"GRC management has a wealth of experience in the gold mining sector, and we believe they fully understand and support our vision for our flagship Bruner Gold Project."

Canamex late last month unveiled metallurgical test results it called "encouraging", as they showed high gold extraction rates at both the historic and Penelas East deposit areas at the site, while column leach tests showed rapid gold extractions even from the lower grade portion of the historic resource region. 

The company in December also reported results from three core holes drilled at its Penelas East discovery, saying all the holes intersected long intervals of disseminated gold.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex raising over $2mln for Bruner gold project ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/99778/canamex-raising-over-2mln-for-bruner-gold-project-51900.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ) says it is raising up to $2.16 million through a private placement financing, with the funds to be used to further explore its Bruner gold project in Nevada. 

The company, in a statement released earlier this morning, said it will issue up to 22.2 million common shares to an undisclosed "new strategic investor", and up to 1.77 million common shares to Canamex insiders, at a price of 9 cents apiece. This compares with Canamex's closing price of 8 cents per share on Thursday. 

The financing is expected to close on February 14, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. 

Canamex late last month unveiled metallurgical test results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada that caused shares to rise. The company called the results, from drill and bulk samples, "encouraging", as they showed high gold extraction rates at both the historic and Penelas East deposit areas, while column leach tests showed rapid gold extractions even from the lower grade portion of the historic resource area. 

The company in December also reported results from three core holes drilled at its Penelas East discovery, saying all the holes intersected long intervals of disseminated gold.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources' metallurgical results encouraging, company says ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/99606/canamex-resources-metallurgical-results-encouraging-company-says-51601.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled metallurgical test results from its Bruner gold project in Nevada that caused shares to rise on Tuesday. 

The company called the results, from drill and bulk samples, "encouraging", as they showed high gold extraction rates at both the historic and Penelas East deposit areas, while column leach tests showed rapid gold extractions even from the lower grade portion of the historic resource area. 

The bottle roll cyanidation tests were performed on composites from two drill holes from the 2013 campaign that sit about one mile apart. Hole B-1340, which is located in the historic resource area, showed gold extractions ranging from 93% to 99%, with lower head grades having lower gold extractions and higher head grades having higher rates. 

Overall, the drill hole had an average gold extraction of 97% on an average calculated head grade of 0.1011 ounces per ton of gold. 

In the second hole, B-1341C, which is located in the Penelas East deposit, showed an overall gold extraction rate of 93% on an average calculated head grade of 0.0296 ounces per ton. 

Canamex said there was no decrease in gold or silver extraction with depth in either hole. 

Meanwhile, ongoing column leach tests on a bulk sample taken in early December last year from the historic resource area have shown encouraging results thus far, according to the company. Two columns currently under leach will remain this way for at least 45 days to quantify gold extraction from a lower grade zone in the area to help in determining the best cut-off grade for heap leaching.

"The results from the metallurgical tests are very encouraging," said president and COO Greg Hahn, in a release announcing the results Tuesday afternoon. 

"We are also pleased with the low reagent consumption demonstrated by these test results."           

Last November, Canamex unveiled the final round of reverse circulation drilling results from its Bruner project in 2013, saying one hole in the heart of the historic resource area justified the need for an "intense" drilling program in 2014. 

And early last month, the company reported results from three core holes drilled at its Penelas East discovery, with the company saying all the holes intersected long intervals of disseminated gold. Of the highlights, 79.9 metres of 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold was intersected from one of the core holes.

The Penelas East area has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years, where a total of 40 holes, including five diamond drill holes, were completed. The target still remains open to the north. 

Shares of Canamex climbed nearly 6% on Tuesday, to 9 Canadian cents in Toronto.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex returns core drill results from Penelas East showing long intervals of gold ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/98863/canamex-returns-core-drill-results-from-penelas-east-showing-long-intervals-of-gold-50459.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled results from three core holes drilled at its Penelas East discovery at its Bruner project in Nevada, with the company saying all the holes intersected long intervals of disseminated gold. 

Of the highlights, 79.9 metres of 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold was intersected from one of the core holes. The company said all three holes returned disseminated gold above a 0.3 g/t lower cut-off, across gold-bearing zones that were previously found from reverse circulation (RC) drilling done this year and last. 

Gold is mainly associated with two rock types at Penelas East, according to Canamex.

The junior gold explorer said that as shown elsewhere on the property, these holes demonstrate that gold grades drop off quickly across certain structures across what appears to be a "hydrothermal front" between clay-rich and iron oxide-rich gold bearing zones.

"These core hole drill results confirm that the gold mineral system at Penelas East is broad and comprised of oxidized intervals within variously silicified volcanic rocks of mixed lithologies along a structural corridor," said president and COO, Greg Hahn, in the release.

"This corridor was defined by a recently completed VLF-EM survey, and much of the structure remains untested by either RC or core drilling."

Hahn said that based on the recent core drilling, the previous RC drilling seems to have properly identified and quantified the gold content that hosts the mineral system. The core drilling confirmed the spatial relationships of the gold mineralization and provided detail on the host lithologies of the mineralized structures that supports the prior drill cuttings. 

Last month, Canamex shares jumped after the company unveiled the final round of reverse circulation drilling results this year from its Bruner project, saying one hole in the heart of the historic resource area justified the need for an "intense" drilling program in 2014. 

The hole, B-1340, intersected 57.9 metres of 5.23 g/t gold between 260 and 450 feet in depth. The intercept included a clay-rich and silicified interval at about 275 feet containing 121 g/t gold. 

This hole is located about one mile west of the Penelas East discovery area, the company noted. The Penelas East area has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years, where a total of 40 holes, including five diamond drill holes, were completed. The target still remains open to the north. 

Shares climbed 7.7% on Wednesday morning, to trade at 7 cents in Toronto.

(CVE:CSQ) (OTCQX:CNMXF) has unveiled the final round of reverse circulation drilling results this year from its Bruner gold project in Nevada, saying one hole in the heart of the historic resource area justifies the need for an "intense" drilling program in 2014. Shares jumped over 21% on the news, rising to 8.5 cents in early deals. 

The hole, B-1340, intersected 57.9 metres of 5.23 grams per tonne (g/t) gold between 260 and 450 feet in depth. The intercept included a clay-rich and silicified interval at about 275 feet containing 121 g/t gold, according to Canamex's statement Tuesday. 

This hole is located about one mile west of the Penelas East discovery area, the company noted. 

The final phase of this drilling was designed to test management's theories of the alteration spires found during field mapping this past summer, and the mineralization in the middle of the historic resource area. Earlier this year, the company bought historic data on the Bruner property, and during the course of the field season this year, it completed a geologic surface mapping campaign and underground mapping as prelude to the final phase of drilling.

The hole announced today was to test the possible continuation at depth of "very attractive gold grades" in several historic drill holes that appeared to define the central portion of the historic resource, beneath a couple of alteration spires, the company said.

Canamex president and COO, Greg Hahn, said: "These drill results confirm gold mineralization is associated with the silica alteration spires in the historic resource area. A total of over 50 silica alteration spires of varying surface dimensions have been mapped, most of which have not been evaluated with drill holes."             

"The above results, especially the results reported from B-1340 above, justify an intense drilling program in 2014 to quantify the gold associated with these alteration spires, especially where they are associated with breccia textures that suggest proximity to volcanic or hydrothermal vent areas."

The company will work through the winter to gather all of the data ahead of an aggressive drilling program for the historic area planned for next year. 

Meanwhile, Canamex also drilled another large silica alteration spire located about 200 metres west of the heart of the historic resource area, with hole B-1335 returning 47.2 metres at 1.10 g/t gold. 

The latest drilling news follows the company's announcement late last month that it has identified several more "hot spots" over the Penelas East discovery and surrounding area at its Bruner gold project after a preliminary geophysical survey.  A total of seven VLF-EM lines were run over an area roughly 600 metres long by 400 metres wide, covering less than 1.7% of the approximately 14.2 square kilometre Bruner property.                

The Penelas East area has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years, where a total of 40 holes, including five diamond drill holes, were completed. Of the 37 holes reported thus far, all but five reverse circulation holes and one core hole contain appreciable gold mineralization, according to the junior gold explorer. The target still remains open to the north.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources finds more potential gold "hot spots" at Penelas East ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/98107/canamex-resources-finds-more-potential-gold-hot-spots-at-penelas-east-49251.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) says that it has identified several more "hot spots" over the Penelas East discovery and surrounding area at its Bruner gold project in Nevada after a preliminary geophysical survey. 

The survey confirmed the hot spots, as identified in red/pink tones on a density map. The company said the striking coincidence of the outline of gold mineralzation in Penelas East, as confirmed by drilling over the past year, and the current density anomaly seen in the red/pink tones, leads management to believe that there may be opportunities for more gold mineralization in "numerous other undrilled hot spots". 

It says the potential exists particularly on the colour anomalies that are on possible structural trend of the Penelas East mineralization.

The preliminary survey was run earlier this month by International Geophyscial Services of Lakewood, Colorado, in an effort to identify the structural fabric that is either controlling or constraining the distribution of gold grade in the drilling found so far. 

A total of seven VLF-EM lines were run over an area roughly 600 metres long by 400 metres wide, covering less than 1.7 per cent of the approximately 14.2 square kilometre Bruner property. 

The Penelas East area has been the focus of exploration for Canamex over the past two years, where a total of 40 holes, including five diamond drill holes, were completed. Of the 37 holes reported thus far, all but five reverse circulation holes and one core hole contain appreciable gold mineralization, according to the junior gold explorer. 

The target still remains open to the north. 

A follow up geophysical survey has been designed and will be completed next month on an area of one kilometre squared, surrounding the central current density anomaly that identifies the gold mineralization drilled to date. After this, a drilling program will be designed for next year to test the extensions to the known mineralized area. 

Last year, Canamex drilled a total of 20 holes at its Penelas East high grade target, which averaged 48 metres of thickness and 1.41 grams of gold. 

The company is garnering attention from more senior miners like Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL), which has invested $2.52 million towards a 15 per cent stake in the junior explorer. It recently announced the appointment of Hecla’s senior VP of exploration, Dr. Dean McDonald, to its board of directors.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources sees more drilling ahead at Bruner ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/97895/canamex-resources-sees-more-drilling-ahead-at-bruner-48921.html Canamex Resources Corp. (CVE:CSQ)(OTCQX:CNMXF) unveiled Tuesday drilling progress at its Bruner gold project in Nevada, saying that next year, it plans to design and permit new access to be able to drill deeper into the vein system at the Bruner vein target area. 

Drilling over the last two months focused at three areas of the project -- the Penelas East discovery area, the new Bruner vein target area located about one mile north of Penelas East, as well as within and around the historic resource area. 

At Penelas East, five reverse circulation holes were drilled south of the previous drilling, with all holes intersecting low grade gold below 500-foot depths, but not intersecting the target zone where projected. The company said the low grade gold encountered represents the eastern edge of the projected and offset mineral system.

Core drilling is also underway in this area, with two holes offset to previous drill holes reported. The company is planning to drill a third core hole in the area before finishing this year's drill campaign. Last year, Canamex drilled a total of 20 holes at its Penelas East high grade target, which averaged 48 metres of thickness and 1.41 grams of gold. 

Meanwhile, at the Bruner vein target area, the company drilled seven reverse circulation holes to test the potential for a high-grade epithermal vein at depth, with the best intercept returning 5 feet of 2.44 grams per tonne of gold. 

"These results suggest we are high in the vein system, above the boiling zone and possibly within a larger epithermal vein system," Canamex said in its release, adding that it views this as a "very encouraging sign" as gold in epithermal vein systems precipitates mainly at and below the boiling point.

Finally, at the historic resource area of the project, assay results from a reverse circulation drilling program are pending. If successful, they open up a large untested area for further drilling next year, Canamex said. 

In August, Canamex staked a total of 90 new unpatented lode mining claims at its Bruner gold project. Sixty claims were staked to cover the mineral rights on the west side of the property, which is closer to the NV Energy power transformer and a take-off point for a distribution line located in Gabbs, Nevada. Additionally, the Vancouver-based company staked 30 unpatented lode mining claims covering open fractions that "secure the company's mineral tenure over the gold deposits."               

The company is garnering attention from more senior miners like Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL), which has invested $2.52 million towards a 15 per cent stake in the junior explorer. It recently announced the appointment of Hecla’s senior VP of exploration, Dr. Dean McDonald, to its board of directors.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex: intercepts show continuation of gold mineralization at Bruner ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/96963/canamex-intercepts-show-continuation-of-gold-mineralization-at-bruner-47302.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) announced Wednesday the results from additional drill intercepts from its 2013 reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at the Bruner gold project, Nye County, Nevada.

Results were returned from four holes, B-1317 through B-1320, which were drilled to test the northern extension of the high-grade structure at the Penelas East target.

Drill hole B-1319 intersected a high-grade structure at 635-640 feet grading 30.7 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) within a wider zone averaging 7.2 (g/t) gold over 9.1 meters  between 630-660 feet.

A re-run on the interval 635-640 feet using gravimetric methods returned 32.9 (g/t) gold, mineralization that has not yet been fully tested as the hole was terminated at 660 feet. 

These intercepts confirm the continuation of significant gold mineralization to the north of previously drilled intercepts at the Penelas East target.

According to the Vancouver-based explorer, project geologists have not determined the attitude of all of the mineralized intercepts, and therefore cannot determine the true width of any of the reported intercepts at this time. 

"We continue to intersect stockwork gold mineralization in all holes drilled into the Penelas East target. There appears to be a lower grade stockwork zone surrounding the high-grade structure(s), which should allow for considering open pit mining of this gold zone,” said president and COO Greg Hahn in a company statement released with the results.

Meanwhile the RC drilling program has been focused on drilling the southern extension of the Penelas East target area, following up on the high grade intercept in hole B-1301 completed and reported earlier in the year

Future drilling will test northern and southern extensions to the gold mineralization, as well as further characterize the gold bearing zones.

September is forecast to bring with it the commencement of a core drilling program for the Bruner project with three core holes planned to drill into the high-grade zones at Penelas East to help refine the geology and attempt to resolve the several possible geological interpretations.

<![CDATA[News - Canamex Resources stakes 90 new claims at Bruner gold project ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/96895/canamex-resources-stakes-90-new-claims-at-bruner-gold-project-47152.html Canamex Resources (CVE:CSQ) said it has staked a total of 90 new unpatented lode mining claims at its Bruner gold project in Nye County, Nevada. 

Sixty claims were staked to cover the mineral rights on the west side of the property, which is closer to the NV Energy power transformer and a take-off point for a distribution line located in Gabbs, Nevada.

Canamex said the location is ideal for all-weather heap leaching and construction of the shortest possible power distribution line to the property.

Additionally, the Vancouver-based company staked 30 unpatented lode mining claims covering open fractions that "secure the company's mineral tenure over the gold deposits."

Its land position at Bruner now spans about 15 square kilometers.

Canamex has paid all maintenance fees to The Bureau of Land Management for the newly-staked claims and has completed new topographic mapping and aerial mapping of the property, paving the way to "establishing a maiden NI 43-101 mineral resource" as it prepares for a preliminary economic assessment next year.

Last year, Canamex drilled a total of 20 holes at its Penelas East high grade target, which averaged 48 metres of thickness and 1.41 grams of gold. Drill hole B-1301 hit 91.4 metres of 3.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, including 1.5 metres of 117 g/t gold and 396 g/t silver, in what is believed to be the "second best intercept ever drilled" on the asset.
