Rox Resources Ltd. Announces Completion of the Acquisition of the Fox Mine Property, a Former Past Producing Copper-Zinc Mine, Located in Manitoba, Canada

LYNN LAKE, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2007) - Rox Resources Ltd. (PINK SHEETS:RXRS.PK) ("Rox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Acquisition of the Fox Mine, a past producing Copper-Zinc mine, located 44 kilometers southwest of the town of Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Canada.

Rox Resources Ltd. has acquired a 100% undivided interest in the Fox Mine property which consists of 9 claims and is approximately 2,110 hectares in size.

The Fox Mine property is contained within the south limb of the Aphebian age Lynn Lake greenstone belt and is regionally metamorphosed to amphibolite facies. The Fox ore body is a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit, and is comprised of two discrete lenses-each within its own stockwork zone. The ore lenses show conventional metal zonation with zinc sulphides lying stratigraphically above copper sylphides. Proximity to ore is indicated by pronounced geochemical enrichment and depletion trends. Little drilling has ever been done at depth and represents potential.

Sherritt Gordon Mines Limited first discovered The Fox ore-body in 1961. Tonnage milled to closure in 1986 approximated 11,936,479 tonnes of 1.82% Cu and 1.78% Zn plus "specialty metals" which included gold and silver.

Sherritt Gordon Mines exploration work, occurred between 1961 and 1985. During this period Sherritt conducted Diamond drilling from surface in over 100 different locations, and over 2200 underground locations. Although the mineralized zones from surface were closed off at depth, only one (1) Diamond drill hole reached a depth of about 1465 meters below surface. Rox believes that further exploration work will indicate a " secondary" deposit.

Rox Resources Ltd. is further pleased to announce that the Company is now in possession of the; data, maps and core that Sherritt Gordon Mines compiled between 1961 through to 1986.

In a future release, Rox Resources will outline the Company's plan for data compilation, leading towards the Company's NI 43-101 and Diamond drilling program at the camp. To get more detail on the size and proximity to other land holders in the area visit

Rox Resources Ltd. is focused primarily on acquiring, exploring and developing base metal properties in the mining friendly Province of Manitoba. Rox Resources is committed to acquiring a significant project portfolio.

Rox Resources Ltd. (PINK SHEETS:RXRS.PK) has been rated a "Speculative Buy" with a price target of $0.20 by Beacon Equity Research Analyst, Lisa Springer, CFA. The full report is available at
