Merrex Gold Inc. Releases Final RC Drill Results from Siribaya Gold Project
HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA - (Marketwire, November 27, 2012) - Gregory Isenor, P.Geo., President and CEO of Merrex Gold Inc. ("Merrex") (TSX Venture: MXI) is pleased to release the following RC drill results from the Siribaya Gold Project in West Mali.
During 2012, 153 RC drill holes totaling 18,946 metres were completed. All assays have been received. The RC program focused on evaluating the Bambadinka gold-mineralized geochemical trend where 141 of the RC holes (16,946 metres) were drilled. (see Table of Significant Assays below.)
The Bambadinka gold mineralization is thought to be hosted in a stockwork quartz vein system with a stronger zone evidenced in the central portion of the Bambadinka trend.
See attached map for RC drill hole locations.

About the Siribaya Gold Project
Merrex's Siribaya Gold Project is a 50/50 joint Merrex-IAMGOLD advanced-stage gold exploration project in West Mali comprised of approximately 850 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. The accounting review of those expenditures is substantially complete after which IAMGOLD's 50% interest in the land package will formally vest.
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) was planned for 2012 at a budgeted expenditure of $11.86 million before contractual overhead fees; however, due to the March 2012 coup and the resulting drilling interruption the total meterage planned will not be completed during calendar year 2012.
