The seven holes were drilled on the Fandou Zone, where an IP resistivity
geophysical survey identified 4 well-developed resistivity axis. These 4 axis
superimpose upon the 2.8 km long by 600 m wide Au and As anomaly discovered in
June 2006. One of the axis coincides with a trench that returned 2.29 g/t Au
over 13 meters and where 5 pits had returned grades between 3 and 12 g/t Au
over 9 meters.

The intervals were sent to the SGS Lab in Kayes, Mali. They were analyzed
by fire assay in three-metre composite sections. The three-metre intervals
presenting grades higher or equal to 1g/t Au will be re-analyzed in one-metre
sections.
Robex' strategy for this drilling program is to drill approximately
twenty holes on 100-metre spaced lines on the Fandou Zone, then, to drill the
Mamoudouya Zone while waiting for the analyses from Fandou. If deemed
necessary, additional drilling will then be undertaken on the Fandou Zone. The
first step has been completed, drilling is now in progress on the Mamoudouya
Zone.
