QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 23, 2012) - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) has received the results of trenches dug on the Moussala permit. Of the three trenches dug, the first with a length of 150 meters and a depth of 3 to 7 meters, gave very good results. A grading of 0.68 g/t over 58 meters, including 1.16 g/t over 4 meters and 0.85 g/t over 18 meters, has been collected among others (see complete results at www.robexgold.com). The second trench did not provide significant results, and the third could not be completed due to too much water in the ground. The three trenches were made ΓÇïΓÇïon a geochemical anomaly of 4 km². The Moussala permit is located in Western Mali, South-East of the Loulo deposit, operated by Randgold.
"These grades, on the surface, are very interesting and encourage Robex to continue exploration work on the permit", said André Gagné, President and CEO.
Resolute paid in July the 3rd installment, in the amount of $ 200,000, as per the agreement signed with Robex in July 2011 in respect of the N'Golopene permit. To hold 51% of the permit rights, Resolute had to pay a total of $ 400,000 in three installments to Robex, which has been completed, and must carry out $ 1 million in work on the permit by July 2013. Then, to get an additional 19%, Resolute must carry out 1.5 million in additional work on the permit, or carry out a feasibility study.
Seeing that Resolute is continuing the exploration on the N'Golopene permit is a good indication that they are still foreseeing, at this stage, the development of the permit. Given the proximity of the Syama mine with N'Golopene, the production could be done at reasonable cost and also benefit Robex, which still holds 30% of the rights.
