2005 News

Vancouver, British Columbia, November 28th, 2005. Candente Resource Corp. DNT:TSX ("Candente") and Orex Ventures Inc. REX:TSX-V ("Orex") are pleased to announce that they have entered into an option agreement whereby Orex can earn a 51% interest in the Pamel gold property in Central Peru.

Exploration will commence at Pamel in December to delineate drill targets. Drilling is anticipated to commence during the first quarter of 2006. The Pamel Property was named after the second daughter of Candente's co-founder Ing. Fredy Huanqui. In 1995, while working for Arequipa Resources Ltd. (Arequipa), Huanqui named a gold project after his eldest daughter, Pierina. The Pierina property was sold by Arequipa to Barrick Gold Corp. for US$700M in 1996.

The Pamel Property is a high sulphidation gold target with many geological similarities to major gold deposits such as Yanacocha, Pierina and Alto Chicama, which together contain in excess of 50 M oz gold and are all in Peru. The Pamel property covers a very extensive (2 by 4 kilometres (km)) mineralized zone. This zone is characterized by unique clay alteration and geochemical anomalies (mercury, arsenic, antimony, barium, lead and gold) in a zoned pattern.

The density of rock chip sampling on the property to date is less than one sample per 100 square metres which leaves much of the property under explored.

Orex has the right to earn a 51% interest in the property by incurring exploration expenditures of US$2.5 million over 3.5 years on the property. Candente has the right to operate all exploration over the 3.5 years. In addition to the exploration expenditure commitments, Candente will receive 60,000 shares in Orex upon approval of the Agreement by the TSX Venture Exchange and will receive staged share issuances totalling 250,000 shares in Orex by January 31st, 2008.
