Orex Minerals Reports 359 g/t Silver over 61 Metres from Surface
at Canasils Sandra-Escobar Silver Project in Durango State, Mexico

Vancouver, January 25, 2016 - Canasil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CLZ, DB Frankfurt: 3CC, Canasil or the Company) is pleased to announce that Orex Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: REX, Orex) has reported assay results for the first hole of the ongoing core drilling program on the Sandra-Escobar Project. The project is being advanced by Orex under an option agreement with Canasil Resources Inc. - (TSX.V: CLZ) (Canasil), announced on September 15, 2015.

Hole SA-15-001 has yielded a 61-metre core length (43.1 metres true thickness) intercept grading 359 g/t silver, starting from surface. Within this is a sub-interval of 18 metres (12.73 metres true thickness) grading 748 g/t silver, which includes 9 metres (6.36 metres true thickness) grading 1,204 g/t silver and 3 metres (2.12 metres true thickness) grading 2,271 g/t silver, as listed in the table below. Of the 61 core samples in 1-metre intervals from surface included in the above intercept, 60 of the samples exceeded 100 g/t silver confirming continuous mineralization through the intercept (detailed table included on page 3). The drill program has resumed after the year-end holidays with four drill holes completed and is currently in progress on the fifth drill hole.

Bahman Yamini, President and CEO of Canasil commented, These are exceptional results with very high silver values over an appreciable mineralized intercept from surface. Silver mineralization in this area has been observed in outcrops over a strike length of 700 metres on surface and we look forward to the results from the other holes being completed in the current drill program.



Silver mineralization is hosted along the flank of a rhyolite volcanic dome in an area of the project which has no previous drilling. Mineralization is hosted in an altered and highly permeable volcanoclastic unit, with disseminations of silver bearing minerals and broadly spaced stockwork veinlets. The current working model has a porphyritic rhyolite unit as an impermeable cap, which may have focused mineralizing fluids into the host permeable volcanoclastic unit. Geochemical analyses indicate no significant gold, lead, zinc, arsenic and antimony associated with the silver mineralization.

The drill program is being managed by Orex and the above results were prepared by and provided by Orex. Orex maintains a QA/QC sampling protocol for the diamond drilling program, including the insertion of commercial analytical standards and blank samples. As part of an early stage exploration program, the above results do not contain any top end cut-off. The diamond drilling was contracted to Kluane Drilling Ltd. and analytical testing was performed by SGS Mineral Services in Durango. Silver was determined by fire assay, atomic absorption finish, and geochemical analyses by ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry) following a four acid digestion.

The technical information in this news release is based on data supplied by Orex. The technical information herein has been reviewed and approved by J. Blackwell (P. Geo.), a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Blackwell is a technical advisor to Canasil.

Sandra-Escobar Silver-Gold Project, Durango, Mexico:

The Sandra-Escobar project is located 200 km northwest of the City of Durango, Mexico, in the heart of the Mexican Silver Trend, with excellent access and infrastructure. This prolific trend hosts some of the worlds largest silver camps and deposits with many past and present producing mines and significant silver-gold deposits. The project area covers over 6,976 hectares of mineral concessions with multiple mineralized epithermal veins and breccia structures. These veins form a high level silver-gold-base metals system, hosted in andesitic and rhyolitic rocks, centered on a large rhyolite dome complex in the north and silver systems in smaller rhyolite dome complexes to the southeast. Intense alteration zones and fluid flooding in permeable formations may also indicate the presence of bulk tonnage targets. Under the terms of the agreement dated September 15, 2015, Orex has an option to earn up to 65% interest in the project through total cash and share payments of $1,000,000 and exploration expenditures of US$4,000,000 over five years.
