Robex Receives the Production Permit for its Nampala Project

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 3, 2012) - It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Robex Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) announces it has received its Production Permit for Gold and Mineral substances at Nampala (Decree No 2012-190/PM-RM) (see the production permit). With the delivery of this Production permit, Robex has now completed all legal requirements to officially begin production.

This Production Permit is valid for 30 years and complements the earlier permit delivered in February (see press release of February 16th) which allowed Robex to begin certain construction activities so as to prepare the mine site for production. At that time the Mali Authorities had clearly indicated that the decree would be delivered once signed by all Authorities and this has been done. Robex express its sincere appreciation to Mali Authorities for delivering it.

The delivery of this Production Permit is the final legal requirement for Robex to meet its objectives: the construction of an open pit mining operation with a cyanide treatment plant of a minimum capacity of 5,000 Tonnes per day. The final Feasibility on this project estimated a Net Present Value (5% discount) of $113.6 Millions before taxes at a gold price of $1,250 per once. The Internal Rate of Return was estimated at 46.5% (see press release of November 8th, 2011).

"It is with great pride that we receive this Production Permit, after 4 years of intense work to reach our objective of producing at Nampala. In waiting for this permit, we have already started some work of importance which will allow us to gain time on an eventual start of production" declared Andre Gagne as President & CEO of Robex. "I also wish to recognize warmly Mr. Abdel Kader Maiga, our General Manager at Bamako, for his excellent work and commitment in this undertaking. He has contributed greatly to Robex toward obtaining this Production Permit" added Andre Gagne.
