Corporate VP's mission in Mali, appointment of a new V-P Operations, restructuring, ongoing preliminary feasibility study, increased interest in the N'Golopene property - Robex moving forward!

QUEBEC, QUEBEC--(Marketwire – Dec. 18, 2008) - Robex Ressources Inc. (TSX-V: RBX) announces that the restructuring plan initiated by the nomination of the new Board of Directors is progressing and is producing positive results for the company. Our Vice-President's November mission in Mali was a success as it simultaneously reinforced the company's position in regard to its Malian assets and enabled the implementation of an expense rationalization program. M. Benoît M. Violette, geologist, has been appointed V-P Operations and has already initiated a review of Robex's properties in Mali. Also, a preliminary feasibility study is ongoing on the Nampala gold deposit located on the Mininko permit. And finally, a last payment of 60 000$ US was made in regard to the N'Golopene property, thus increasing Robex's ownership level to 93%.

Our Vice-President's mission in Mali

Robex's Vice-President, Mr André Gagné, has recently returned from a mission in Mali where he met with the director of DNGM (National Commission for Geology and Mines) as well as the Minister of Energy, Mines and Water, Mr Mamadou Igor Diarra. These constructive meetings resulted in a revaluation of Robex's Malian personnel and a reassessment of priorities concerning the allocation of human and financial resources as well as the nature and level of activities to be carried out on each of Robex's ten properties in Mali.

Newly appointed geologist

Robex is pleased to announce the nomination of Mr Benoît M. Violette geo. as Vice-President of Operations. Mr Violette is a professional geologist, member of the Quebec Order of Geologists, with a solid technical expertise as well as experience in funding and managing of gold mining projects. Since his graduation in 1979, he has conducted research and appraisal of mining prospects in the United-States, Canada and Africa for many mining companies, including research into novel exploration and extraction methods. His knowledge and enthusiasm towards Robex's projects constitute a major asset for our company. Already active in Mali, Mr Violette will work with Robex's new board of directors to carry-on the exploration and development of the company's properties in that country.

Preliminary feasibility study

COREM metallurgical laboratories was recently mandated to conduct a preliminary feasibility study on the Nampala gold deposit where an inferred gold resource of 760,000oz has been outlined by previous programs. The Nampala deposit is located on the Mininko permit. Preliminary metallurgical tests proposed by COREM will determine the parameters for the recovery of gold by way of gravimetric procedures. Work performed by this Quebec laboratory will be conducted under the supervision of the Bumigeme Consulting Group of Montreal.

Increased interest in N'Golopene

Robex has recently paid the last instalment of 60 000$ US on the N'Golopene property permitting the company to increase its interest to 93% (see press release Feb. 2, 2008). This transaction thus ensures Robex a majority ownership of all 10 properties in Mali. The N'Golopene permit is contiguous to the north and the east of Resolute's Syama mine.
