Brisbane, Oct 3, 2008 AEST (ABN Newswire) - ActivEX Limited (ASX:AIV) has completed a first pass drilling program (7 holes for 555m) at the Native Dog Prospect (Lake Monduran EPM 14378) which has encountered visible primary molybdenum mineralisation in 5 of 7 holes drilled.

The program is partly funded by a Cooperative Drilling Initiative grant from the Queensland Department of Mines and Energy.

The Company has now received all assay results from the holes (ND 05, 07, 10 already released) as follows:-

Seven RC percussion holes were drilled to test a 2km structurally controlled greisen zone at the contact of Watalgan Granite and Gympie Group sediments. The greisen zone is a highly altered contact zone of the granite where hot mineralising fluids have pooled against the sediments. It also hosts sheeted quartz veins in dilational structures. Molybdenite has been found in quartz veins and within the greisenised granite. The presence of disseminated mineralisation within the greisenised granite confirms the potential for a large tonnage target in the area.

Previous work by ActivEX has defined a molybdenum soil anomalous zone, 2km by up to 490m wide, associated with the greisen. The drilling targeted the zone of elevated molybdenum geochemistry. Molybdenum grades achieved in drilling are not economic in the current market.

The Company plans to review the project to seek zones of higher grade molybdenum mineralisation in the area.
