Zedex Ups Drilling On Further Positive Results

Auckland – March 8 2001 – Zedex Limited has resumed drilling at the planned production rate of 800 metres per month. Further positive results from its ongoing drilling program at the Phuoc Son property in central Vietnam have been received from Genalysis Laboratory of Perth, Western Australia.
The new assay results are from drill holes DSDH-61 (partial results previously reported) and from DSDH-62, which are both located in the Bai Go sector of the Dak Sa shear zone at Phuoc Son. Selected intercepts are shown in the Table below.

The results from the above drill holes at Bai Go demonstrate a south-westerly continuation of the high-grade shoot identified by earlier drilling at Bai Go. Two further holes (DSDH-63 and DSDH-64) have since been drilled to probe the Bai Go mineralisation further to the south west. Drilling of additional step-out holes along strike and down-dip from the known mineralisation at Bai Go is continuing with the use of two drilling rigs, whilst a third has commenced drilling down-dip from high-grade mineralisation exposed in artisan workings at Bai Gio, which is located 700 metres NNE of Bai Go. Zedex is encouraged to report that these results are consistent with the stated objective of delineating a substantial high-grade gold, silver and base metal resource at the Phuoc Son property.
