Globex: Gold Recovery Technology Proven Successful Again

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Jan. 12, 2011) - GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to update shareholders on work undertaken for a Second Client who contracted with Eco Refractory Solutions Inc. (Eco), Globex's 75% owned subsidiary which is commercializing a hydrometallurgical process for the recovery of gold from refractory ores.

Shareholders will recall that test work for a First Client was able to recover in the range of 95% of the gold from an arsenical refractory gold ore while transforming both the arsenic and sulphides into stable forms suitable for disposal in tailings. (See Press Release dated September 22, 2010)

Our Second Client has a refractory ore in which the gold is very finely distributed within the crystal lattice of pyrite. Eco's initial test indicated extraction of 98.1% of the contained gold within a 24 hour period with low cyanide consumption.

Two additional follow-up CIL (Carbon in Leach) tests were undertaken to confirm the high extraction rate. The confirmation tests indicated 97.3% and 97.4% gold extraction respectively.

For shareholders not familiar with the problems associated with refractory gold ores, the results achieved to-date are extraordinary.

Eco is extremely pleased that the exclusive hydrometallurgical process is demonstrating the ability to recover more gold than other processes and in an environmentally friendly manner. The process does not require a fine grind, high consumption of cyanide nor expensive infrastructure such as autoclaves, all important advantages over other processes.

Eco Refractory Solutions Inc. hopes that with time, our technology will become the leading method for recovering gold from refractory ores and tailings.

This press release was written by Jack Stoch, P. Geo., President and CEO of Globex in his capacity as a Qualified Person (Q.P.) under NI 43-101.
