NGEx Announces Updated Metallurgical Test Results and Filing of Technical Report for the Los Helados Project, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/01/13 -- NGEx Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX:NGQ) is pleased to announce new results from the Phase Two metallurgical test work program completed on its Los Helados copper-gold porphyry deposit located in Region III of Chile. These results continue to indicate that the Los Helados mineralization is amenable to standard sulphide flotation concentration with the copper and gold recoveries and concentrate grades comparable with those at many operational mines. Deleterious elements in the test concentrates produced were well below levels which would be penalized by smelters.

The results of optimised locked cycle tests are shown in the table below:

Flotation testwork was carried out at SGS Research Laboratories in Santiago, Chile on three composite samples from three different depths within the deposit. Each composite sample was constructed from 20 samples of drill core as follows: Upper Zone - 642 metres of mineralization from twelve different drill holes; Intermediate Zone - 715 metres of mineralization from 17 different drill holes and Deep Zone - 1,105 metres of mineralization from 12 different drill holes. SGS completed a comprehensive scoping study level testwork program consisting of sample preparation, grind time estimation, physical characterization testwork, rougher flotation kinetic testing, cleaner flotation testing and both open circuit and locked cycle flotation tests. A detailed description of the SGS testwork summarized here, is included in the BD Technical Report referred to below.
