Solex Resources Corp. receives Macusani East project data from Eldorado Gold Corporation

Solex Resources Corp. announced that they have received technical data from Eldorado Gold Corporation on its Macusani East Joint Ventured project. This information was received on September 5, 2008 and includes data that has not previously been released to Solex. All new data received from Eldorado will be verified by Solex’s Qualified Person prior to public disclosure.

Solex has contracted ACA Howe International Limited, an international geological and mining consulting firm, to provide analysis of the data and a thorough re-evaluation of all work conducted by Frontier Pacific during the years of 2006, 2007 and 2008. Howe will test the sufficiency of this work to support a NI43-101 Inferred Resource Estimate for the Macusani East project. Howe will also be responsible for providing recommendations for future development programs of this region.

About the Macusani East Project

The Macusani East project is joint-ventured with Eldorado Gold Corporation. The Project contains 53 known uranium anomalies discovered in the 1970s by the Peruvian Institute of Nuclear Energy (IPEN) and consists of 72 concessions covering 47,820 hectares. On April 21, 2005, Solex entered into a joint venture agreement with Frontier in which Frontier had the right to earn a 50% interest in the project by spending US$4-million over five years as the operator. Frontier fulfilled its obligations in just over two years and subsequent to the acquisition of Frontier by Eldorado in 2008, Eldorado is now a 50/50 partner on the project.

Solex Resources Corp. is the dominant landholder in southern Peru’s Macusani Uranium District with concessions covering over 904 km(2). In 2008, a $5.5-million exploration program is being carried out on the Company’s Macusani East joint ventured uranium project. The Company is also aggressively exploring its three 100% owned Macusani uranium projects. A NI 43-101 report has recently been filed on the Princesa silver, lead and zinc property and further field work has been completed on the Pilunani lead and zinc project with a report due shortly.
