IRW-Press: Dorex Minerals Inc. Completes Phase 1 Of Exploration On Tres Hermanos Gold Mine

Dorex Minerals Inc., TSX-V. “DOX” (The ‘Company’ or “Dorex”) announces that it has successfully completed the Phase I field exploration and geochemical rock-sampling program on its Tres Hermanos Mine Property, located in northwestern Mexico.

The Tres Hermanos Mine property lies within the Batopilas mineral district, in the prolific Sierra Madre Precious Metals Belt in the southwest corner of Chihuahua State, Mexico, approximately 180 kilometers southwest of Chihuahua, the capital city of the State of Chihuahua. This mineral belt is internationally known for significant gold, silver and copper production. The Tres Hermanos Mine Property is comprised of eight contiguous exploration concessions comprising an area of 328 hectares.

Historically documented gold assays from the mine workings are limited; however, the reported yield from the upper workings was 47.9 grams per tonne gold (“g/t”) and the lower workings 16.5 g/t gold. Documented assays from Levels 2 to 6 of the eight Levels in 1980 returned from 0.9 g/t gold to 190 g/t gold {6.1 ounces gold} including an assay of 29.2 g/t from Level 6. Gold-copper assays from surface samples of the vein system on the Property collected by Dorex personnel returned elevated gold values from trace up to 5.75 g/t and from trqace to 0.74% copper.

From the initial discovery of gold on the property in 1903, an undocumented report of 22,500 ounces of gold was extracted from 1914 to 1916 which was followed by processing of the ores in the mill of 30 tons per day capacity and the recovery of documented 275 kilograms of gold.

A more detailed description of the Property is available on the Company’s website (www.dorexinc.com) and within the SEDAR filed Tres Hermanos Project Technical Report.

During the Phase I exploration program, a total of 438 samples were collected (including QA/QC sample insertions) and analyzed for 30 elements via ICP as well as gold by Fire Assay. All samples were sent for chemical assay to ISO certified Inspectorate Laboratory’s Durango, Mexico preparation facility and subsequently to Inspectorate’s Vancouver analytical laboratory. The purpose of the Phase I exploration program was to generally orient the Company with the Project, to identify the primary mineralization model and to generate future exploration targets, including drill testing. Results of the Phase I program will be announced as soon as the Company receives the final exploration report.

In March 2012, the Tres Hermanos Mine property was featured as the top exploration mining prospect at the Government of Mexico booth collateral materials at PDAC in Toronto in The Portfolio of Mining Projects of the General Direction of Mining Promotion of Mexico (www.economia.gob.mx)

This news release was reviewed and approved by Paul D. Gray, P. Geo., a qualified person for the Tres Hermanos Mine project.

News Editor Worries About Jihadist Revolt In Russia

John Bonar, Editor-in-Chief BSR Russia

In his weekly blog posted Monday on www.bsr-russia.com, John Bonar, the Editor-in-Chief of Business Special Report says the Russian government is failing its North Caucasus population by not openly acknowledging the underground network of jihadists responsible for over 400 deaths of judges, prosecutors, police and security officers in the region last year.

Bonar says the jihadists, led by Akhmed Yavlaev known as ‘Magas’, are an extremist minority at odds with the majority of the region’s Muslim population.

He calls on the government to acknowledge the situation and seek help in dealing with the problem from Arab and Western governments and security forces.

Canada To Be Latest Country To Memorialize Millions Of Victims Of Communism Soviet-Born Author Compares Stalin’s Purges To The Holocaust

 

Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister, is said to be enthusiastic about constructing a monument in Ottawa to the worldwide victims of communism.

“I would strongly support the idea of such a monument to recognize the 100 million people who died violent deaths under communist regimes, as well as those who escaped these totalitarian regimes to build new lives in Canada.”

Soviet-born Canadian author Alexander Dolinin, an expert in the period, praises the prime minister’s initiative but ads: “In contemporary Russia, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, the image of Stalin is being glamorized as the victor over Nazi fascism and the nation’s great leader” said Dolinin. “But Stalin’s terror took at least 20 millions lives, and to my mind that is why it deserves equal attention with the Holocaust. If we forget such tragic events, we risk their repetition., but paints a grim and moving picture of life in the camps and describes a daring escape in his new novel Against Destiny from Kunati Books. 

A similar monument is under construction in the Czeck Republic—a US memorial in Washington was dedicated in 2007—with financial support from Communist party members Miloslav Ransdorf and Vojtech Filip. Both men agree that the hard-line communists of the past allowed ideology to subvert democracy. “Never in the future must law be used as an instrument of power,” said Mr. Ransdorf.

Nowhere was law used as such an instrument of power with greater efficiency and cruelty than in the Soviet Union under Josef Stalin. Estimates vary but most agree that at least 20 million citizens were “liquidated” in Stalin’s purges. Hundreds of thousands of these were Red Army officers and soldiers, sent to their deaths in the camps on trumped up charges of treason and spying. Every person condemned to death or imprisonment was sentenced according to Soviet law, with no possibility of appeal. 

About Against Destiny

This fictional account of imprisonment and escape from the Gulag brings the horrors of Stalin’s reign of terror to vivid life. A highly decorated infantry captain is unjustly charged with treason, tortured, and sentenced to 25 years of labor that he knows he will never survive. He befriends three other desperate prisoners, and together they plot to elude months of agony and certain death in the camp. They are aided in their escape by the camp’s chief medical orderly, a native Siberian whose knowledge of native customs, the local topography, and healing and survival techniques enable the men to make slow progress by reindeer-drawn sled and on foot across the forbidding Arctic terrain. After 18 months of grueling travel, their passage to freedom in Alaska is jeopardized when the Soviets unleash an artillery bombardment in a last ditch effort to halt their race across the frozen Bering Strait.

Alexander Dolinin was born and raised in Leningrad in the former Soviet Union. He holds an MA in Iranian philology from the State University of Leningrad, and a BA in Honours History from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, where he specialized in Russian history. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
