About the Siribaya Gold Project
The Siribaya Gold Project is a joint Merrex-IAMGOLD exploration project in West Mali comprised of approximately 910.5 square kilometres of gold-prolific exploration permits and permits applications pending where exploration expenditures to date exceed $28 million. IAMGOLD has advised that the required $10.5 million of exploration expenditures under the terms of the Earn In Option Agreement has been completed and that subject to a final accounting review which is nearing completion IAMGOLD will formally vest with a 50% interest in the land package. Exploration of the Siribaya Gold Project is ongoing under a joint management committee. A total of 75,000 metres of drilling (Reverse Circulation, Diamond and Auger) is planned for 2012 at a budgeted expenditure of $11.86 million before contractual overhead fees. However, given the drilling interruption it is anticipated that the total planned program meterage will not be reached during calendar year 2012.
Merrex is primarily a Mali focused gold exploration company with experienced management, a solid exploration team, a prominent gold-producer as a partner and an expanding gold resource... a winning combination offering investors an extraordinary opportunity.
