Robex Resources Inc.: Announcement

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 7, 2011) - Resources Robex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) announces that notwithstanding the precarious markets, the society wishes to seize this opportunity to reassure its shareholders that the company continues to make great strides towards moving to production stage for 2012, 2013.

The latest encouraging accomplishments (see press releases dated February 16, April 11 and June 29, 2011) is bringing Robex closer to the stated goals, particular the objective of developing the Nampala deposit into production. The society is confident that it will soon be able to deliver a revised resource calculation with a substantial increase.

To date, the required environmental and social impact studies, topographic survey and the hydrogeology studies necessary for the feasibility process all occurred without any complications. Metallurgical test work completed at SGS Lakefield confirmed the initial high recovery and low reagent consumption achieved in 2010 on the original samples. Ongoing additional testing is expected to improve recoveries further with an expectation of 92 % or better recovery (refer to press release dated February 16, 2011).

Furthermore, the drilling campaigns of reverse circulation of 13,000 meters and the 5,000 meters of diamond drilling yielded results above expectations (see press releases dated April 11, 2011 and June 29, 2011). The latest press release demonstrates mineralisation potential at depth with results of 97 meters at 1.20 g/t (Mn2011dd003) and 54 meters at 0.91 g/t (Mn2011dd007). The results from the latest drilling campaigns will be included in a revised resource calculation which is currently in progress.

Robex awaits impatiently the completion of the Nampala feasibility study by Bumigeme and Met-Chem. The study, which is progressing as scheduled, is defining the application modalities of an open-pit mining operation using a 5,000 tons a day cyanide processing plant.

Robex is the owner of:

  • The N'Golopène license, located in the extension of the gold anomaly of the Syama mine (a producing mine of Resolute Mining Ltd. with a resource of more than 6 M oz gold and a production of 77,926 oz in 2010);
  • The Nampala license, where a feasibility study is in progress with the objective of defining a potential exploitation for an open pit and milling facilities with cyanidation for 5,000 tpd;
  • The Wili-Wili and Wili-Wili West license which is characterized by a strong geochem gold anomaly over 2.8 km by 0.6 km, and adjacent to Iamgold's and Merex' Siribaya project;
  • The Sanoula license which is surrounded by Golde Rim with whom preliminary discussions have been held for a potential JV, and
  • The Kolomba license which delivered interesting results in a previous campaign and which is presently occupied by small miners.
