ROUYN-NORANDA, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 18, 2017) - GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1MN)(STUTTGART:G1MN)(BERLIN:G1MN)(MUNICH:G1MN)(XETRA:G1MN)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to inform shareholders that Globex has purchased, from Monarques Gold Corp., (TSX VENTURE:MQR), a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) which Monarques acquired as part of their purchase of Richmont Mines, Quebec assets. The royalty was applicable on Globex's 100 % owned Francoeur/ Arntfield gold property.

The 1.5 % NSR, was payable by Globex up to a total of $1,300,000 after which it reduced to a 0.5% NSR on all additional gold production.

In order to acquire and eliminate the royalty, Globex made a one-time, twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) cash payment to Monarques and terminated a 0.5 % NSR payable by Monarques to Globex on eleven (11) claims previously sold by Globex to Richmont, located east of and adjoining Monarques Wasamac gold property in Beauchastel Township, Quebec. In addition, Globex has extended Monarques right to store Wasamac core at Globex's Francoeur Mine site for one additional year to June 30, 2019.

The purchase removes an overhanging royalty on the Francoeur/Arntfield gold property where Globex recently announced a new discovery at surface grading 9.52 g/t Au over 7.1 m including 15.4 g/t Au over 4.1 m. Additional trenching, channel sampling and geophysics have been completed with positive results. A permit for 10 drill holes has been requested to drill the new gold zone, over a strike length of 340 m (1,115 ft). Drilling is expected to commence next week.
