Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 14, 2021) - BMEX Gold Inc. (TSXV: BMEX) (OTCQB: MRIRF) (FSE: 8M0) ("BMEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that diamond drill hole TUT-21-018 has intersected visible gold assaying 81.89 g/t Au over 0.45 metres at its King Tut Gold Project ("King Tut" or the "Project"), located in the Abitibi region of Quebec, Canada (Figures 1 and 2). A re-assay of the sample returned 143.79 g/t Au. All assay results for the Company's recently completed its 2020-21 drill program at King Tut have now been received. Results for drill holes TUT-21-011 to TUT-21-019 can be found in Table 1; collar coordinates and hole orientations are listed in Table 2. Previous results were reported in press releases dated March 11, 2021 and March 23, 2021.
Warner Uhl, President and CEO of BMEX Gold, commented, "I am very pleased with the assay results from hole 18, which was one of the last holes targeting the main structure at King Tut. In addition, we are pleased that nearly all our drill holes have returned gold mineralization over variable widths which is very encouraging for a first pass drill program. The system carries high-grade gold and our geological consulting team will be evaluating the whole drill program in conjunction with other geophysical tools and modelling to create a robust follow-up exploration program. We are well financed for this work and we are collaborating with one of the best geological teams in Canada."

Assay results for the 19-hole, 5119-metres drill program are currently being compiled with the historic drill results as the Company continues to build a comprehensive exploration model for the Project. Recent results, especially this new high-grade interval, confirm the presence of high-grade gold system at King Tut. Upcoming work includes a drone magnetic survey this summer to support detailed geological modelling. The new exploration model will provide the basis for a targeting study ahead of a follow-up diamond drill program in the fall.

Diamond drill core was logged and sampled at the Services Geologiques T-Rex Inc. facility located in Evain, Quebec. Samples consist of NQ-size core sawed in half over variable sample intervals, with one half bagged and tagged for delivery to Techni-Lab - S.G.B. Abitibi Inc., a division of Actlabs. Quality assurance and quality control protocols include the insertion of blank samples (1 every 50), certified reference material (standard) samples (1 every 50), preparation duplicates (1 every 50) and quarter core duplicates (1 every 50), in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate, and standard samples accredited by the lab. Holes TUT-20-005 to TUT-21-019 were assayed for gold using standard fire assay on a 30 g fraction with atomic absorption finish, and gravimetric finish for grades above 3 g/t.
