Robex Resources Inc./Nampala: Drilling Begins to Investigate Extension to the South

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2011) - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) announces that it has resumed drilling to the south of Lens 100 on its Mininko permit in Mali. The drilling campaign will investigate a 2.4-kilometre geochemical anomaly, which is an extension to the south of the existing Nampala resource.

In September 2011, a diamond drilling campaign over 300 metres to the south of the mineralized zone (see press release dated September 12, 2011) indicated a possible opening to the south. The campaign, totalling 100.5 metres, revealed an overall grade of 0.57 g/t, including 11 metres at 1.45 g/t and 4 metres at 2.18 g/t. The extension to the south of the mineralized zone could allow an increase in the resource within the oxidized zone, for which a feasibility study demonstrating the economic viability of an open pit mine was recently completed (see press release dated November 8, 2011). This study revealed a pre-tax net present value (NPV) of $113.6 million at $1,250 gold price per ounce and an internal rate of return (IRR) of 46.45%.

The drilling campaign, which comprises a total of 35 boreholes of approximately 100 metres in length, began Friday, December 2, with ten boreholes for a total of 900 metres now completed. The planned drilling will have a 90-degree azimuth at a 50-degree plunge. The survey points are staggered over a 200-metre mesh and include a fifth borehole located at the centre of the mesh.
