Robex: Met-Chem Will Develop the Mine Plan for the Nampala Project in Mali

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Robex Resources inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) announces today that it hired the engineering firm Met-Chem Canada inc. (Met-Chem) to develop the mine plan for the Feasibility of the Nampala project in Mali.

Met-Chem's mandate consists of defining the mineable reserve, developing an optimal open pit concept together with selection and cost estimates for equipment and moving of materials which are to be incorporated in the feasibility study. Met-Chem has conducted many projects of similar nature for base and precious metals.

The Nampala deposit contains a resource of 290,000 oz indicated, 419,000 oz inferred and 86,000 oz inferred on lens 200 and 300, for a total of 795,000 oz at levels ranging around 1,0 g/t (in accordance with the Canadian standard 43-101). The metallurgical tests, recently conducted on the ore, showed high recoveries and low reagent consumption (see press release of February 16, 2011). Robex is currently completing the drilling to 25 meters on center in the northern extension to increase the resource of the deposit. Of the 191 holes included in this campaign, only nine remain to be completed.

The main feasibility for the project is under the direction of Bumigeme, a renowned Canadian engineering firm, , with the objective of exploiting an open pit mine and milling-cyanide operation at a rate of 5000 tonnes per day.
