Tirex Resources Adds 3rd Drill to Mirdita Project
- Drill #1 has completed 9 holes at Koshaj with high assays over wide widths in first 4 holes, 5 additional holes are in laboratory with assays pending

- Drill #2 resumes testing previously undrilled geophysical targets

- Drill #3 is mobilized and expected to start drilling in July
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Tirex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TXX) ("Tirex") is pleased to announce that a third drill has been mobilized to the Mirdita Project in Albania to further ramp up the District-scale exploration program on the property. The decision to add the third drill is based on both the exceptional drill results to date and the desire to move even more aggressively on exploration of the many other known deposits and undrilled geophysical and geological targets on the property. With this news, Tirex is pleased to provide the following update on drilling activities on the Mirdita Project:

DRILL #1

The first drill has completed nine holes at the Koshaj Deposit and two holes in the Gurthi South area. Assays from four of the nine Koshaj holes have been received and released. Samples from the other five holes are in the laboratory. The assays received to date are from the Koshaj Deposit and have revealed a wide high grade zone. Highlights include the following:

- Drill hole M08-01: 0.6% Copper, 9.0% Zinc, 0.3% Lead, 48.4g/t Silver and 2.7g/t Gold over 65.0m (True Width 35m) including 0.8% Copper, 12.5% Zinc, 0.1% Lead, 13.0g/t Silver and 2.2g/t Gold over 27.5m (see Tirex news release dated March 3, 2008 for details).

- Drill hole M08-02: 1.1% Copper, 6.7% Zinc, 0.1% Lead, 17.7g/t Silver and 1.6g/t Gold over 60.4m (True Width 25m) including 2.4% Copper, 33.2% Zinc, 1.1% Lead, 172g/t Silver and 8.6 g/t Gold over 3.7m (see Tirex news release dated May 1, 2008 for details).

- Drill hole M08-03: 0.5% Copper, 4.4% Zinc, 0.6% Lead, 44.5g/t Silver and 1.7g/t Gold over 12.9m True Width including 2.9% Copper, 14.5% Zinc, 0.8% Lead, 107g/t Silver and 4.2 g/t Gold over 1.7m (see Tirex news release dated May 1, 2008 for details).

- Drill hole M08-05: 1.0% Copper, 5.2% Zinc, 11 g/t Silver and 1.7g/t Gold over 16.0m (True Width 13m) including 1.8% Copper, 18.1% Zinc, 41g/t Silver and 4.1g/t Gold over 1.1m (see Tirex news release dated June 11, 2008 for details).

Samples from drill hole M08-04 were delayed in transit and are now in the laboratory being assayed as are samples from drill holes M08-06 through M08-09. When assays are received from remaining holes from Phase 1 drilling, Tirex geologists will model the deposit to guide Phase 2 drilling at Koshaj.

In the meantime, the first drill has been moved 2.5km south to begin testing the Gurthi South Zones. Gurthi South is an area with known Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) mineralization that was partially drilled by previous operators. Historic drill results indicate a widespread area of mineralization. Tirex drilling is planned to define and extend the mineralization.

DRILL #2

The second drill is assigned to testing the numerous blue sky exploration targets defined by geophysics and mapping but never previously drilled. Tirex has identified 102 geophysical anomalies on the property, 22 of which have been designated as high priority exploration targets. Tirex geophysicists are now further analyzing the balance of the 102 anomalies to generate additional exploration targets. The second drill is now testing the Shebe North area in the southern part of the property where a well defined geophysical target lies on a critical geological horizon. The second drill is almost finished its first deep hole at Shebe North. In April and May it encountered significant mechanical problems which required a series of repairs and airlifts of parts from Canada. Drilling has now resumed. From Shebe North the second drill will move on to test other blue sky exploration targets defined by the Tirex airborne and ground geophysical surveys.

DRILL #3

Tirex is adding a third drill to further ramp up exploration on the Mirdita property. The decision to add the third drill was based on both the exceptional drill results to date and the desire to move even more aggressively on exploration of the many other known deposits and undrilled geophysical and geological targets compiled and developed by Tirex. The third drill is another highly portable, environmentally sensitive Energold drill made in Canada. It is now in transit and is expected to be on the property in early July. It will be assigned to drill both known deposits as well as test new undrilled geophysical exploration targets on the property.

Bryan Slusarchuk, CEO, states, "The addition of a third drill is another tangible demonstration of our deep belief that the Mirdita Project has potential to develop into a world class VMS district. This ramp up illustrates how aggressively we intend to move to prove up that potential. As exceptional as the initial drill holes at Koshaj are, it is important to remember that Koshaj is just one of 17 known deposits on the property to which we have added numerous high priority geophysical targets. With so much potential and so many targets to test, we decided from the beginning that we needed a very aggressive exploration approach. Management fully supports and will encourage our exploration crews to bring the dream of a world class VMS district to early fruition. In the short eight months since Tirex began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange, the progress and achievements of our technical team have been outstanding. I congratulate them as we prepare for an even more intense and exciting next phase in the growth of the Mirdita Project and the Company."

Tirex is a company purpose-built to explore and develop the large 344 square kilometer Mirdita Property in Albania. The nature of the VMS mineralization in this District provides Tirex investors with exposure to a high grade basket of metals: Copper, Zinc, Gold and Silver. The property is readily accessible by paved and gravel roads and is located 70 km north of the capital city of Tirana. The property covers the core of the historically productive Mirdita VMS base metal district. It represents an opportunity to explore Copper, Zinc, Gold and Silver zones that were previously partially mined, explored or evaluated at lower metal prices, and provides an opportunity to apply modern exploration techniques toward the discovery of new VMS deposits and extensions of known zones. In addition to the historical deposits identified by previous state-run exploration, Tirex has identified numerous high priority exploration targets resulting from the 2007 airborne geophysical survey, ongoing ground geophysics and field work. The Mirdita exploration project is managed by an experienced team of Canadian geologists and other professionals, and several senior Albanian geologists, geophysicists and surveyors.

Tirex Intersects 16.0m of 1% Cu, 5.2% Zn, 11g/t Ag and 1.7g/t Au
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Tirex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TXX) -

- assays pending on additional holes

- drilling continues on multiple priority exploration targets

Tirex Resources Ltd. ("Tirex") is pleased to announce assay results from the fifth drill hole on the Mirdita Project in Albania. This hole was drilled in the Koshaj area of the property on the same section as the first three holes which intersected wide zones of high grade mineralization (see Tirex news releases dated March 3, 2008 and May 1, 2008). Samples from the fourth hole were delayed in transit and are now in the laboratory being assayed.

The fifth drill hole intersected a 16 metre (52.5 ft) section grading 1.0% Copper, 5.2% Zinc, 11g/t Silver and 1.7g/t Gold including 1.1 metres grading 1.8% Copper, 18.1% Zinc, 41g/t Silver and 4.1g/t Gold.

Summary of assay results from drill hole MR08-05:

Drill hole MR08-05 was drilled on the same section as the first three holes. It was collared 25m east of drill hole MR08-03 but was drilled at an angle of -65 degrees to intersect the mineralization closer to its true width entering the zone between drill holes MR08-02 and MR08-03.

The first drill has now completed nine holes on three sections over a strike length of 75m on the Koshaj Deposit which remains open on strike. Samples from the remaining five holes have now arrived at the laboratory and assays are pending. In assays from all holes received so far, wide widths of high grade mineralization were encountered (see also Tirex news releases dated March 3, 2008 and May 1, 2008). When assays are received from all nine holes to date, Tirex geologists will model the deposit to guide Phase 2 drilling at Koshaj. In the meantime, the drill has been moved 2.5km south to test the Gurthi South zones of historically known mineralization.

This drilling is the start of a District-wide drill program at Mirdita, the first target area being Koshaj. Tirex owns a District of projects with the Koshaj Deposit being one of 17 known deposits on the property. Koshaj was only partially drilled and defined by the Albanian State Mining Company in the past. It was reported to be a zinc-rich deposit which was not mined because of a lack of zinc processing facilities. Tirex drill targets at Koshaj and elsewhere on the property, were identified by a combination of historical data compilation, results from the Tirex 2007 airborne geophysical survey and the follow up ground geophysical work.

George Gorzynski, P.Eng. and Director, states, "Today's assay results add one more piece to the definition of the Koshaj Deposit. When assays for the remaining five Koshaj holes are received, our geologists will model the results to guide further drilling. In the meantime Koshaj is the first of 17 known deposits on the property to which we have added numerous new geophysical exploration targets. Drilling has started at Gurthi South which is an area with known widespread VMS mineralization and road building to access the first drill sites at Gurthi Central has now been completed. Gurthi Central is one of the most significant historical targets on the Mirdita property to be revisited by Tirex with modern exploration techniques and drilling. We will be systematically and aggressively testing all these targets as we move to prove up the great potential of the Mirdita District."

John Nicholson, P.Geo., a Qualified Person under the meaning of Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and Mirdita Project Manager, is responsible for the technical content of this news release. Drill core was HQ size (6.35cm diameter) and BTW size (4.20cm diameter). Half core samples were collected with a rock saw, tagged for identification and securely stored at the Tirex base camp until shipment. A total of 5% assay standards and 5% blanks were inserted into the sample shipment as a quality control measure in addition to the internal quality control measures applied by the laboratory. All samples were shipped directly to Global Discovery Labs in Vancouver, Canada where they were dried, weighed, crushed and pulverized. Splits of each pulp were then analysed for 30 elements by ICP Spectrometry and assayed for copper, lead, zinc, silver and gold by standard assay methods.
