Geologix Acquires 100% Of Tepal Property By Accelerating Final Payment

 
Vancouver, B.C., April 4, 2011 - Geologix Explorations Inc. (TSX: GIX) (the "Company" or "Geologix") is pleased to announce that, subject to the previously announced property purchase agreement with Arian Silver Corporation ("Arian"), the Company has accelerated delivery of the final US$2.3 million property option payment due to the underlying vendor (Minera Tepal, SA de CV) and earned a 100% interest (subject to a 2.5% net smelter return) in the 138 square kilometre land package in Michoacán state, Mexico.

President and CEO, Dunham Craig stated, "We are pleased to complete this transaction ahead of schedule and gain 100% ownership of this important land package. We now have full control and mineral title to all of the ground where the recently announced resource estimate and pending Preliminary Economic Assessment work have been concentrated. In addition, this land package includes a substantial amount of surrounding ground that will be the focus of our ongoing exploration and resource expansion programs." Full details of the purchase agreement can be found in the Company's news releases dated November 5, 2009, and January 19, 2010.

Subsequent to the acquisition of the above mentioned option from Arian, Geologix optioned an additional 34 square kilometres at Tepal which is subject to a separate underlying option agreement (see news release dated December 29, 2010 for full option term details). No work has been done to date on this additional ground.

Geologix Explorations Inc. is a mineral exploration company focused on acquiring, exploring and developing mineral resource opportunities with the potential to host world class mineral deposits. The Company's primary focus is the Tepal Gold-Copper Porphyry Project in Michoacán State, Mexico, where the Company has substantially increased the project's resource estimate in advance of a pending Preliminary Economic Assessment study ("PEA"), and is continuing to aggressively explore for additional gold and copper mineralization in an effort to expand the size of the resource and scale of the possible future mining operation.
