VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2009) - NGEx Resources Inc. (TSX:NGQ) ("NGEx" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the start of its 2009 drill program on the Josemaria copper/gold project located in San Juan Province, Argentina. The planned program will consist of five to seven diamond drill holes totaling approximately 2000 metres. The objective of the drill program is to test the potential for a significant expansion of the existing resource to the north, northeast, and southwest. The drilling will target extensions of the chargeability anomaly that is coincident with the known mineralization as well as strongly anomalous copper and gold in soils and favorable geology and alteration.
