Callinex Continues to Intersect Graphite Mineralization at its Neuron Project
June 30, 2014 (Source: CNW) — Callinex Mines Inc. (the “Company” or “Callinex”) (TSX.V: CNX; OTCQX: CLLXF) is pleased to announce the assay results from the last two diamond drill holes of its 12-drill hole campaign on its Neuron Graphite Project located in Northern Manitoba.
Both drill holes (NQ sized core) NEU010 and NEU012 intersected graphite mineralization and the results are presented below in Table 1. The intervals represent core length as true widths are unknown at this time. The graphite mineralization extends the strike length of the eastern panel where a bulk of the drilling from the exploration program took place (see press release dated May 26th, 2014). The eastern panel was targeted for drilling after a strong EM anomaly was identified by a VTEM airborne survey.

SGS Laboratories is currently conducting a liberation analysis to determine the characteristics and size of the flake graphite encountered at the Neuron Project. Initial analysis of the mineralization has shown that it occurs in coarse polycrystalline aggregates and layers, forming fine to coarse flakes ranging from 100 µm (micrometers) to 2000 µm (1000 µm = 1mm).
About Callinex Mines Inc.
Callinex Mines Inc. is a mineral exploration company currently focused on the exploration and development of its wholly owned Neuron graphite property in Northern Manitoba near Thompson. The company owns a portfolio of Canadian exploration assets in various stages of development. The portfolio consists of gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, lead, zinc, and nickel projects.

Note Regarding Scientific and Technical Information
The Company maintained a QA/QC program at all stages of exploration. Drill core recovery was calculated, measured and recorded at the Neuron project before being cut and sampled. Samples were sawed in half, one half of each sample being kept for storage and the other half placed in a pre-labeled plastic bag, tagged with the sample number and recorded in the log. Callinex QA/QC samples were inserted into the group of samples and shipped to SGS labs in Lakefield, ON, where they were crushed, split, pulverized to 250 g samples at 200 mesh and then assayed. The lab employs internal quality control by assaying pulp duplicates and inserting quality control standards of predetermined values and a blank sample.
