TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire -04/03/12)- Oremex Gold Inc. ("Oremex Gold" or the "Company") (TSX-V: OAU.V - News)(Frankfurt: OM8.F - News) is pleased to announce additional rock sampling results from its 100% owned Cerro del Oro gold project, located in the Melchor Ocampo mining district in northern Zacatecas State, Mexico. Furthermore, rehabilitation of two underground workings to facilitate the commencement of an underground drilling program is currently underway.

"The additional sample results show significant levels of widespread gold-dominant mineralization over considerable widths at the Cerro del Oro project. Our ongoing detailed sampling program provides much better definition of the mineralized zones and structures and consequently has expanded the area of interest. The Company is planning and looking forward to commencing both underground and surface drill programs in the near future" stated David Terry, President and CEO.

Analytical results for 440 surface and 20 underground rock chip samples have been received (147 reported in Feb.23.12 news release). For the entire database, gold averages 0.47 g/t (0.01 to 8.3 g/t); 266 samples were greater than 0.2 g/t and 114 samples were greater than 0.5 g/t. Silver ranges from less than 2 g/t to 75.9 g/t, lead ranges from 4 g/t to 1.5% and zinc ranges from 6 g/t to 11.4%. Additional analytical results from the ongoing work are expected shortly.

The mineralized intrusive/skarn domain within the central portion of the property was expanded from 450m by 300m (Feb.23.12 news release) to a 500m by 500m area as a result of the sampling reported herein. A second area of intrusive-related mineralization (150m by 60m area) is located in the northwest corner of the property. Numerous samples were collected in a series of contiguous rock chip samples from hand trenches or road cuts.

The Cerro del Oro property is 100% owned by the Company's wholly-owned Mexican subsidiary, Minera Tres Diamantes, S.A. de C.V. (Feb. 23.12 news release).

Cerro del Oro is located 22km north of Goldcorp Inc.'s world-class, Penasquito, gold-silver-lead-zinc mine (P&P Reserves greater than 18 million oz gold and 1 billion oz silver)(1) at the northern end of the Zacatecas "Zona Dorada" (Golden Zone). The Cerro del Oro property hosts numerous historical pits, trenches, underground workings and is underlain by a mixed intrusive/skarn domain significantly mineralized with gold-silver, +/-base metals. Mineralization commonly displays structural controls and occurs in both intrusive and skarn lithologies.

Analyses reported herein were performed by SGS Mexico SA de CV, in Durango, Mexico, an internationally recognized analytical services provider. The Company followed industry standard procedures for the work carried out on the Cerro del Oro project. A total of 17 standards were inserted into the sample sequence reported herein.
