WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- IMX Resources Limited (TSX: IXR)(TSX: IXR.WT)(ASX: IXR) ('IMX' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce that it has appointed Azure Capital Limited ('Azure') as its corporate advisor.
One of Azure's first tasks will be to assist IMX in an evaluation of the Mt Woods Magnetite Project (the 'Mt Woods Project'), prior to advising the Company on the strategic commercial options for the project.
IMX has defined a JORC Inferred Mineral Resource of 569 million tonnes at 27% Fe at the Snaefell Magnetite Deposit and a global exploration target of between 200-380 million tonnes at 25-35% Fe elsewhere across the Mt Woods' Project area. The Company has also previously completed a scoping study on the project with the Snaefell resource as the basis.
Managing Director Neil Meadows commented: "The appointment of Azure to assist in developing commercial options for the Mt Woods Project is a positive step towards realising the value of our investment in the project. It also represents a significant vote of confidence in IMX, our projects and our people by Azure and we look forward to working closely with them in the future."
In addition to advising the Company on the strategic commercial options for the Mt Woods Project, Azure has been mandated to advise the Company across a broad range of corporate issues, including the ongoing exploration and development work programs within the Nachingwea property in Tanzania, and extracting maximum value from the Ntaka Hill Nickel Sulphide Project.

About IMX Resources Limited
IMX Resources Limited is an Australian based mining and base and precious metals exploration company, listed on the Australian Securities Exchange ('ASX') and Toronto Stock Exchange ('TSX'), with exploration projects located in Australia, Africa and North America.
In Africa, IMX owns and operates the highly prospective Nachingwea Exploration Project in south-east Tanzania, which includes the potentially world-class Ntaka Hill Nickel Sulphide project. Nachingwea is highly prospective for nickel and copper sulphide, gold and graphite mineralisation. The Ntaka Hill Nickel Sulphide Project is one of the world's best un-developed nickel sulphide projects and has the potential to produce a very clean, high quality premium nickel concentrate.
In Australia, IMX operates and owns 51% of the Cairn Hill Mining Operation, located 55 kilometres south-east of Coober Pedy in South Australia, where it produces a premium coarse-grained magnetite-copper-gold DSO product at a rate of 1.8Mtpa.
IMX is actively developing the Mt Woods Magnetite Project on the highly prospective Mt Woods Inlier in South Australia. IMX currently has a JORC Inferred Resource of 569Mt @ 27% Fe at the Snaefell Magnetite Deposit and a Global Exploration Target of between 200-380Mt @ 25-35% Fe elsewhere in the project. Studies indicate that coarse grained concentrates that could be produced at Snaefell have the potential to produce a direct sinter feed product which has the potential to attract a significant price premium.
