VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2013) - Geodex Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GXM)(G2W.F), (the "Company" or "Geodex") announces that it has received the drilling results for its Peaked Mountain target on the Dungarvon Tungsten-Molybdenum-Tin Project in New Brunswick. Six holes were completed on the Peaked Mountain tungsten-molybdenum target for a total of 837 metres for which all results have been received. Results are pending for a further three holes which were completed on the South Dungarvon tin target for a total of 276 metres.
The focus of the Peaked Mountain drill program was to locate the source of numerous large and high grade tungsten plus molybdenum bearing boulders and tungsten-molybdenum-tin soil anomalies. The drilling did not intersect mineralization of the same grade and character as the boulders. The Peaked Mountain drilling was focused on and near the contact zone between the Dungarvon granite intrusion and the country rocks as well as geophysical anomalies within the Dungarvon Granite. Samples from three holes were submitted for analysis, while the other three holes did not intercept material mineralization.
The best result was from DU-13-03 which intersected 9.31 metres of 0.177% tungsten trioxide (WO3) and 0.036% tin, with mineralization in this interval mainly in quartz veins cutting country rocks in close proximity to the Dungarvon Granite. Molybdenite mineralization in DU-13-06 was focused in an 11.22 metre interval, occurring in quartz veins in the granite near its upper contact.
The results included:
Note: The above intervals do not represent true widths of mineralization, which would be less based on the measured core angles.
Mark Fields, President& CEO, commented "Our drill program was designed to locate the origin of the numerous tungsten-molybdenum high grade boulders which may have been sourced from a potential greisen-quartz vein system at Dungarvon. The drilling has limited the potential size of a deposit with the character of the boulders which were our exploration focus."
The South Dungarvon drilling were focused on a tin target. Results are anticipated in late July.
