Robex Resources Inc./Nampala: Substantial Increase of the Resource

713,065 ounces of measured & indicated and 815,870 of inferred ounces

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2011) - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) is pleased to announce the results from its latest revised resource calculation of the Nampala gold deposit, on its 100% owned Mininko permit. The revised calculation is a complement to the 43-101 compliant Nampala gold deposit resource estimation completed by Coffey Mining in 2007. To date, the defined deposit includes a total of 713,065 ounces of Measured & Indicated and 815,870 ounces of Inferred inclusive of all categories.

"The confirmation of this substantial increase of the resource is excellent news, rendering us enthusiastic and optimistic towards the impending development of Nampala. Moreover, the possible extension along strike to the south (announced in press release dated September 12, 2011) allows us to consider an additional resource increase, as well as sustained growth for Robex" declares André Gagné, Robex's President and Chief Executive Officer.

This revised calculation, prepared by Jacques Marchand, a NI 43-101 Independent Qualified Person, Geological Engineer, includes 345,049 ounces of gold from the measured category, 368,016 ounces in the indicated category and 815,870 ounces in the inferred category using a cut-off grade of 0.30 grams per tonne (g/t).

Ore Categories Tonnage Grade (g/t) Ounces
Oxide Measured (M) Resource 11,614,266 0.86 322,047
Indicated (I) 8,281,023 0.76 201,476
M & I (combined) 19,895,289 0.82 523,523
Inferred 2,452,011 0.63 49,460
Sulphide Measured (M) Resource 775,026 0.92 23,002
Indicated (I) 6,541,128 0.79 166,540
M & I (combined) 7,316,154 0.81 189,542
Inferred 24,813,331 0.96 766,410

Within the next two weeks, a full report will be filed on SEDAR along with a published analysis of the calculation.

Historically, the 43-101 Nampala Gold Deposit Resource Estimation completed by Coffey Mining in 2007 defined an inferred resource of 760,000 ounces of gold at a cut-off grade of 0.50 g/t (see technical report 43-101). The revised calculation just completed includes the drilling results following the application of Coffey Mining's recommendation to carryout infill drilling at 25 meters spacing. An initial revised calculation was completed in 2010 following a reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign of 8,033 meters from 119 drill holes. The addition of the results from the 8,033 meters which were drilled rendered an indicated resource of 244,000 ounces of gold within the top portion of lens 100. This process also equated to the raising of the confidence level vis-à-vis the oxide portion of the deposit from inferred to indicated between the surface and an approximate depth of 80 meters (press release dated June 28, 2010). The inclusion of drilling results from a second RC campaign of 73 drill holes totalling 4,865 meters (press release dated April 11, 2011), as well as a diamond drilling campaign of 5,000 meters from 19 drill holes (press release dated July 28, 2011), result in this latest resource calculation with a total of 713,065 ounces of Measured & Indicated and 815,870 ounces of Inferred.

Also worth mentioning, the feasibility study being conducted by Bumigeme is currently nearing completion with the drafting of the report whose purpose is to define the application modalities of an open-pit mining operation using a 5,000 tons a day cyanide processing plant.
