Lots of people taking profit so far today, last at .54 with a big 500 shares on the bid. I chose not to chase it up, so far, haven't done enough DD to be sure.

Didn't sell any, either -g- .... this Phelps report sounds interesting, does anybody know where to get a copy? Even better, an URL to it?
Just what percentage will Rorex end up with of the Ocampo claims?
Is there any other way to contact Mr MacPherson than the phone number 604-730-8620?

Nice charts, Jimsy - people should know that you act as a consultant, and that your email is in your profile ......... cheers ....... marcos

Rorex Exploration Inc -

Ocampo assay results; PR firm hired

Rorex Exploration Inc RRXShares issued 29000011998-04-29 close $0.56Thursday Apr 30 1998See Vetta Ventures Corp (VET) News Release Mr. Stuart Mcpherson reports Vetta Ventures and Rorex Exploration have received results of sampling completed by Baltazar Solano of Behre Dolbear & Co., and Peter Lewis of Lewis Geoscience Services during a recent visit to the Ocampo project in western Chihuahua, Mexico. Mr. Solano accompanied George Norman of Churchill Resource Group, project manager of the Ocampo project, to review the geology of the property and to discuss the proposed upcoming exploration program. Mr. Lewis was commissioned to complete a structural study of the project and to develop geological controls on mineralization within the epithermal vein system which will assist in the planning of the drilling phase of the exploration program. A sample taken at the current working face of the Brenda mine (Jesus Maria vein) by Behre dolbear returned 12.38 g/t Au (0.36 oz/t Au) and 907 g/t Ag (26.5 oz/t Ag) over a width of 2.8m. The sample was analyzed by Chemex Labs, Vancouver using 30 gram fire assay gravimetric techniques. Check assays were performed by Bondar Clegg who confirmed the data returning 12.62 g/t Au and 948.4 g/t Ag. Even at today's low gold prices the total dollar value per tonne of ore at approximately $275 (U.S.) makes this type of high grade underground mining venture an attractive situation. Preliminary reporting from Peter Lewis suggests that controls on gold-silver mineralization have both a lithologic and structural component with displacement transfer zones between through-going faults and competent porphyritic andesite being important factors for controlling the placement of precious metal ore shoots. The first batch of samples submitted for analysis to Chemex Labs by Peter Lewis has been received and the highlights are given in the attached table and in the following section. The Veta Tierra vein is within the Brenda mine area and is contained within a parallel structure to the above mentioned Jesus Maria vein. The two structures are approximately 23m apart. Sampling between the structures on level 1 has given an average grade of 1.47 g/t Au over 18.2m, with the Veta Tierra vein averaging 10.52 g/tAu and 243 g/t Ag over 2.8m. A grab sample of matrix breccia with clay altered clasts returned high grade results of 89.76 g/t Au and 1,795 g/t Ag. The above mentioned Jesus Maria vein sample from the working face is approximately 15m below level a and approximately 30m southeasterly from the Veta Tierra vein samples. The Las Animas structure was sampled at surface approximately 300m south of the current production face at the Brenda mine. The zone was sampled obliquely to the true width of the structure over 45m and averaged 2.81 g/t au and 87 g/t Ag over a true width of 22.5m. The zone remains open on the hanging wall side of the structure. These types of precious metal grades over substantial widths suggest that the bulk tonnage lower grade target is also worth pursuing at Ocampo. The Maria vein was sampled at surface over a 150m strike length with results up to 16.08 g/t Au and 255 g/t Ag over a true width of 1.2m. Underground sampling of the vein by Baltazar Solano reported 22.4 g/t Au over 1.8m reported within the Behre Dolbear qualifying report dated Nov., 1997. The Maria vein target area is ready for drilling with only minor road work to be accomplished to allow for drill access. An area that has generated much interest and which is an excellent drill target is the intersection zone between the Jesus Maria structure (currently being mined by Brenda Mines) and the Maria vein. Vetta Ventures has also optioned a 70 percent interest in additional property in the Ocampo area and more particularly, two claim groups to the west of the Ocampo town-site known as the La Cruz and Ampliacion (also known as the Cinco de Mayo area). The purchase price for the claims is $250,000 and 200,000 Vetta common shares of which $50,000 has been advanced as a refundable deposit pending a property inspection. The Cinco de Mayo vein was sampled on a brief visit by George Norman, Baltazar Solano and Peter Lewis to the Cinco de Mayo claim which is approximately 3.5km to the west and north of the Brenda Mine area. A pillar within old workings was sampled and contains abundant free gold up to 2mm in length within grey silica quartz silicification and minor quartz veins. The vein was mined down to a depth of approximately 50m in the mid-1950s and has seen no work since that time. A table of results of the sampling program described above follows:

OCAMPO ASSAY RESULTS

Vetta Ventures Corp. and Rorex Exploration Inc. are pleased to announce results of sampling completed by Mr. Baltazar Solano, of Behre Dolbear & Company Inc., and Peter Lewis, of Lewis Geoscience Services Inc. during a recent visit to the Ocampo Project located in western Chihauhau, Mexico.

Kudos to you Jimsy - you were all over this one and let us all know - I have had it on the ticker for a few days - I did not buy any - As I am not very good at reading these even though the numbers look good - has any of this already been built into the price.

we have seen time and time again that th results never seem to meet the expectations of the very fussy market. Obviously I will be watching closely. If it does fly - I hope noone minds if I climd on to the bandwagon and help ye all celebrate.

I figure that before too long we might see a certain person from Georgian bay crashing the party. Especially if it moves as I know he is watching and lurking
