Grab Samples Grade Up To 13.06 g/t Au at Francoeur/Arntfield; All Directors Re-Appointed and Resolutions Approved

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - June 1, 2017) - GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1MN)(STUTTGART:G1MN)(BERLIN:G1MN)(MUNICH:G1MN)(TRADEGATE:G1MN)(LANG & SCHWARZ:G1MN)(OTCQX:GLBXF).

On May 30, 2017, Globex provided shareholders with our principal observations and conclusions from our initial review of Francoeur and Arntfield Gold Mine property data.

As indicated in the press release, field visits were undertaken to a number of outcrops areas directly east and approximately 220 m to 330 m along strike of the drill hole FS-16-35 shallow gold intersection of 1.19 g/t Au over 40.19 m reported in a press release of January 25, 2017.

Two samples from an old trench found approximately 240 m east of our drill hole returned assays of 13.06 g/t Au and 1.68 g/t Au. Further to the east grab samples from various outcrops were for the most part anomalous in gold with individual assays of up to 4.08 gpt Au.

At the same time, Globex geologists located, 750 m southeast of our drill hole, an old trench partially exposed over a 20 m length which in grab samples returned the following assays as well as a number of highly anomalous values, 10.18 g/t Au, 10.15 g/t Au, 9.53 g/t Au, 6.79 g/t Au and 1.54 g/t Au. (Note: Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to be representative of average grades.

These samples represent part of the surface expression and envelope of the Francoeur Number 1 gold zone which was selectively mined underground at a small scale in the late 30's early 40's. It is instructive that surface material with such high gold values was deemed not worth following up upon and mining and demonstrates the potential of exploring for a large tonnage low grade near surface gold deposit.

Globex has requested a permit to do three 100 m long trenches in the area of Globex's wide gold drill hole intersection. In addition, Globex will map, strip and channel sample large outcrop area to the east of the drill hole where grade samples returned numerous signification gold assays. Globex has also initiated preliminary surface visits to areas along the Francoeur-Wasa shear zone where historical trenching and surface sampling has indicated gold values as demonstrated in this press release.
