MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire – Aug. 1, 2007) - Robex Resources Inc (TSX-V: RBX) announces important changes in the top-level management of the Company. The board has appointed Mr. Jean Demers, as President and CEO of Robex, starting September 1st, 2007. Mr. Demers, a senior geologist, has over 25 years experience in the mining industry. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Geology from Université de Montréal (1980), has continued higher studies in mining engineering at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal (1990) and has qualifications and experience in investment Securities and in international commerce. He has worked in investment Securities and for mining companies as a mining and gold mining analyst.

His professional activities include: project management, training in mining geology, revision of feasibility studies, financial analysis and project evaluation.

After having spent the last twenty years in Mali for Barrick Gold, GSI and Robex, Mr. Biron has decided that it is time to retire.

Robex thanks him warmly for his contribution and wishes him a happy retirement.

Richard Savard, who has been President of Robex since January 2005, will take over Serge Biron's position in September as Manager in Mali.
