Press Releases


Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, November 24, 2011 - Fieldex Exploration Inc. (TSXV: FLX) (Frankfurt: F7E) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement with prospector Larry Desgagné to acquire a 100% interest in 90 mining claims comprising the Nicobi Property covering more than 5,040 hectares (50.40 sq. km) located in the Abitibi greenstone belt about 25 kilometres south of Desmaraisville, Quebec.   

The Nicobi property
The Nicobi property lithogies include sedimentary rocks, graphitic schists, felsic and mafic volcanic rocks as well as intrusions of the Archean Abitibi Greenstone Belt.  Prior to the Nicobi acquisition, Fieldex, with the permission of the vendor, executed geophysics tests to evaluate the continuity of the main showing. HLEM (Maxmin II) plus Induced Polarization works conducted on the east part of the Nicobi property outlined sub-parallel high-chargeability strong conductors. These two strong anomalies repeats on all 5 test lines over a total east-west extension of 1400 meters. The due diligence results convinced Fieldex management to sign the option agreement.

A 1,500 m drilling campaign has been planned over an area labelled Zone 2. The zone 2 includes four trenches dug along conductors where host rocks and quartz veins alteration contains sericite, chlorite, muscovite, graphite and azurite. Disseminated to semi-massive sulphides such as pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and bornite can be observed within host rocks and quartz veins. Historic grab samples and channel samplings from these trenches returned values grading up to 2,24% Cu and 13,6 g/t Ag. Fieldex recent due diligence grab samples from these trenches returned values up to 2,78% Cu and 10,9 g/t Ag.

Fieldex 1,500 m drilling program will be initiated in the coming days to test the Zone 2 conductors.
