Oremex Commences Drilling at San Lucas Property

Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Oremex Resources Inc. (TSX-V:
ORM) (the "Company") announces that it has commenced drilling on its San Lucas Property 80 km north of Durango in the State of Durango, Mexico.

"The San Lucas Property has significant exploration potential. The 5,000-metre program of drilling will begin to test extensions of mineralization along strike and below previously drilled mineralization at the property," said Dale Scholz, president of the Company.

At the San Lucas Property, a 19-hole drill program completed in 2005 outlined a high grade gold-silver-lead-zinc mineralized system in volcanic rocks over a two-kilometre strike length. Preliminary surface mapping and sampling have traced the zone for an additional two kilometres along strike from the original drilling. Highlights of the 2005 drill program included intercepts of 9.26 grams per tonne ("gpt") of gold and 233 gpt silver over 4 metres in Hole 3 and 203 gpt silver over 6 metres in Hole 4. Mapping and sampling have also identified a separate mineralized structure.
