Almadex Minerals Ltd. ("Almadex" or the "Company") (TSX-V: “DEX”) is pleased to announce that it has received results from the first two of five holes drilled to date at the Davis/Paradise project in Nevada. This drill program has now been paused for assays, and a second phase program is planned for September when the Company drill is expected to return from third party contract work. Almadex holds the rights to earn 100% of the Davis/Paradise property, which covers multiple targets, and is located approximately eight miles southeast of Gabbs, Nevada and five miles northeast of the Paradise Peak gold mine, which was active from 1984 to 1994 (Figure 1).

J. Duane Poliquin, Chairman of Almadex commented, “We are very happy to get the first results back from this phase one program. These results confirm the prospectivity of the northern Davis portion of the project. We look forward to follow-up drilling there as well as first pass drilling on the southern Paradise area later this year.”

Drilling results announced today are from the Davis vein zone and help to demonstrate the important widths and grades of the mineralised structure identified previously in historic work and drilling for which the Company has limited information. The two holes were drilled on the same section (Figure 3) and indicate that mineralisation continues to depth and should be further explored down dip. Significant core intervals from the first two holes include:

Hole DP-22-001 From 62.70 to 63.50 (0.80 metres) @ 17.1 g/t gold and 10.3 g/t silver
  And From 65.50 to 67.20 (1.70 metres) @ 11.8 g/t gold and 68.2 g/t silver
  And From 119.00 to 132.70 (13.70* metres) @ 2.3 g/t gold and 24.1 g/t silver
    Including From 119.50 to 122.90 (3.40 metres) @ 3.0 g/t gold and 41.2 g/t silver
  And From 130.0 to 130.80 (0.80 metres) @ 18.1 g/t gold and 39.4 g/t silver
Note: Estimated true widths are approximately 73% of the core intersections above.
Hole DP-22-002 From 19.40 to 21.50 (2.10 metres) @ 5.7 g/t gold and 22.3 g/t silver
  And From 135.20 to 153.00 (17.80* metres) @ 1.2 g/t gold and 12.3 g/t silver
    Including from 135.20 to 139.55 (4.35 metres) @ 1.9 g/t gold and 25.9 g/t silver
  And From 146.35 to 153.00 (6.65 metres @ 1.9 g/t gold and 11.9 g/t silver
  And From 152.00 to 153.00 (1.00 metre) @ 5.8 g/t gold and 3.5 g/t silver
Note: Estimated true widths are approximately 67% of the core intersections above.

The other three holes of this phase one program were located on different targets on the northern half of the property. Two holes were drilled in an area of alteration interpreted to represent a sinter and breccia system, extending over 1.5 km in length running parallel to the Davis zone (Figure 2), and the fifth hole targeted another separate vein with historic mine workings in the Northern area called Butler. Outstanding assays from these three remaining holes will be reported once received and analysed.

The Southern Paradise portion of the property, where Almadex anticipates a phase two drilling program to be focussed in September, covers high level acid sulphate quartz alunite alteration as well as a zone of phyllic alteration identified by past alteration mapping and a recent Worldview remote sensing study. Recent mapping performed by the Almadex team confirms the presence of multiple generations of porphyric intermediate intrusive with important alteration zones, especially in the historical mining excavations. This new data suggests that the Paradise area represents a large lithocap with potential for both gold-silver high sulphidation mineralisation and porphyry mineralisation at depth, similar to that seen at the adjacent Paradise Peak gold deposit where both styles of mineralisation were observed.

Qualified Persons and QA/QCJocelyn Pelletier, P.Geo. a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101"), has reviewed, and approved the scientific and technical contents of this news release. The analyses reported were carried out at ALS Chemex Laboratories of Reno, Nevada using industry standard analytical techniques. For gold, samples are first analysed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy (“AAS”). Samples that return values greater than 10 g/t gold using this technique are then re-analysed by fire assay but with a gravimetric finish. Silver is first analysed by Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (“ICP-AES”). Samples that return values greater than 100 g/t silver by ICP-AES are then re analysed by HF-HNO3-HCLO4 digestion with HCL leach and ICP-AES finish. Of these samples those that return silver values greater than 1,500 g/t are further analysed by fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Intervals that returned assays below detection were assigned zero values. Blanks, field duplicates and certified standards were inserted into the sample stream as part of Almadex’s quality assurance and control program which complies with National Instrument 43-101 requirements. Several veins were intersected in the initial Davis drilling, suggesting 3 sub-parallel mineralised zones. The mineralised structure appears to strike 350 and dip 68° to the East. While all true widths cannot be accurately calculated at this stage of the program, it assumed that true widths in hole DP-22-001 are 73.1% of the core intersections reported while those in DP-22-002 are 66.9% of the core intersections reported.

About the Davis/Paradise PropertyAlmadex consolidated the Davis/Paradise Valley area during 2019 by optioning from the underlying owners the Davis property, which adjoins the Paradise Valley property which had been staked by Almadex’s predecessor company. The property now comprises 358 claims totalling approximately 2,800 hectares with multiple targets, located approximately eight miles southeast of Gabbs, Nevada and five miles northeast of the Paradise Peak gold mine.

About AlmadexAlmadex Minerals Ltd. is an exploration company that holds a large mineral portfolio consisting of exploration projects and NSR royalties in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. This portfolio is the direct result of many years of prospecting and deal-making by Almadex's management team. The Company remains focussed on grassroots exploration, acquisition and drilling mineral projects, on its own and in partnership with others, with the goal of creating new mineral resources and royalty holdings. The Company owns several portable diamond drill rigs, enabling it to conduct cost effective first pass exploration drilling in house.
