ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT, STUTTGART, BERLIN, MUNICH, XETRA:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to inform shareholders that the Fabie Bay copper-silver mine located near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, has achieved commercial production.

According to First Metals (TSX:FMA), with whom Globex has a royalty agreement, First Metals Inc. "achieved commercial production as of March 1, 2008, at the Fabie Bay Mine. During the month of March, 44,500 tonnes of copper ore, grading 2.56% Cu were mined and trucked from the Fabie Bay Mine near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

In March, 42,000 tonnes were milled at the Xstrata Horne mill and smelter facilities. Mill recoveries averaged 90% at a 21% concentrate grade. Gross metal production was 2.1 Million pounds of copper. Subject to final assays, payable metals will be approximately 1.9 million pounds. Actual revenues generated will be based upon the average price of copper on the London Metal Exchange for the month of June. If today's copper price (U.S. $3.95/lb) was used, this would represent U.S. $7.5 million in gross revenue." (First Metals press release of April 28, 2008).

Globex has 2 royalties on all mineral production from the property, the first being a 2% Net Metal Royalty and the second being a 10% Net Profit Royalty which comes into effect after First Metals recoups $10 million of capital costs.
