ROUYN-NORANDA, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 24, 2016) - GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1M)(STUTTGART:G1M)(BERLIN:G1M)(MUNICH:G1M)(XETRA:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to inform shareholders that we have started a three to four hole drill program on our 100% owned Devil's Pike gold project located in Springfield, Kings and Queens Counties, New Brunswick.
The drill program will test a gold-antimony residual soil anomaly with related induced polarization and VLF-EM anomalies. A previous drill hole (DP-36) by Rockport Mining Corp. in 2008 intersected 0.56 gpt Au over 21.52 m. Two angular boulders were located along the target trend which assayed 4.44 gpt Au and 2.14 gpt Au. The mineralization in hole DP-36 was not similar to the mineralization in the angular boulders and was drilled sub-parallel to the current target. (See Globex Press Release dated September 6, 2016). The area being drilled is separate from the area where Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. reported on inferred gold resource as summarised below:

In addition, 63 channel samples will be cut across the Galena vein on which historical sampling was reported over a 405 foot (123 m) strike length, 2.06 foot (0.63 m) width and 2 foot (0.61 m) depth running 0.93 oz/T Au (28.93 gpt Au) (See Globex press release dated September 9, 2015 for details). Twenty channel samples are also being cut along two areas stripped between the vein's systems.
