ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) -GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to inform shareholders that we entered into an agreement with Richmont Mines Inc. (TSX:RIC)(NYSE Amex:RIC) whereby Richmont may earn 100% interest in five claims owned by Globex adjoining their Wasamac property in Beauchastel Township, west of the town of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

On February 17, 2011, Richmont announced a significant increase in their estimated resource base on the Wasamac property to 1,282,000 ounces of gold in the measured and indicated categories and 285,200 ounces of gold in the inferred category. At the east edge of their property, Richmont announced six widely spaced drill holes which intersected what is now called the 3 Zone and averaged 2.75 g/t Au over a horizontal thickness of 11.9 metres along a strike length of 400 metres, from an elevation of -250 to -500 metres. The number 3 Zone abuts against the Richmont-Globex property boundary and may strike and plunge onto Globex's claims.

In order to earn a 100% interest in the five Globex claims which form a small part of Globex's 161 claim (5,092 hectare) Beauchastel-Rouyn property, Richmont has agreed to the following option terms and conditions:

  1. Upon signing, $500,000 in cash and $1 million in exploration over a 18 month period.

  3. At 36 months, an additional $2 million in cash and the issuance of 500,000 Richmont shares to Globex. An additional $1 million in exploration will be done within the following 18 months.

  4. Reserve for Globex a 3% Gross Metal Royalty on all mineral production from the claims.

  5. At the 48th month, commence the payment of an annual advance royalty to Globex of $50,000 until production is achieved.

Globex is pleased to have signed this agreement with Richmont which had previously indicated their intention to drill at least 24 holes in the area of the 3 Zone next to Globex's property boundary.
