QUÉBEC CITY, Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Robex Resources Inc. (« Robex » and/or « the Company ») (TSXV : RBX / FWB : RB4) is pleased to provide drilling results from the ongoing drill definition and exploration program at its 100% owned Nampala gold project located in the Sikasso administrative region of the Republic of Mali. The 20,000 meters drill program commenced in September 2018. The program is currently focused on infill drilling within the Nampala open pit and resource area and on exploration drilling on the adjacent Mininko exploration permit.

The Company is reporting assay results from 57 drill holes (totaling 5,392 metres): 13 diamond drill holes (totaling 1,272 meters) and 44 RC holes (totaling 4,120 meters). The program is still ongoing and other results will be reported once the results are received, validated and compiled.

In this release, significant assay results from 43 intercepts in 23 drill holes are reported herein are provided in Table 1 below and include the following highlights:

(A drill hole plan map is attached to this news release)


East Zone:

Significant results were obtained along the East Zone confirming the potential of that area located about 250m east of the current mining operation.

• “RC hole NAM2018RC-103: 40.0 meters grading 1.83 g/t Au, including 10.0 meters grading 4.28 g/t Au
• “RC hole NAM2018RC-112: 75.0 meters grading 0.66 g/t Au
• “RC hole NAM2018RC-110: 30.0 meters grading 1.17 g/t Au, including 4.0 meters grading 5.27 g/t Au
• “RC hole NAM2018RC-101: 32.0 meters grading 0.97 g/t Au, including 10.0 meters grading 1.77 g/t Au

South Zone:

Confirmation of gold mineralization 500m to 1,000m south of the current mining operation in the South Zone.
• “RC hole NAM2018RC-115: 69.0 meters grading 0.34 g/t Au

West Zone:

Confirmation of gold mineralization within 100m to 250m west of the current mining operation in the West Zone.
• “RC hole NAM2018RC-087: 46.0 meters grading 0.40 g/t Au

New drilling results were either confirming or extending gold mineralization in all Nampala’s mineralized zones. All significant gold results are coming from saprolites (oxides) and/or transition zone (sap-rock), with the exception of only one interval (NAM2018RC-085-DD) hosted in fresh hard rock.

Mr. Augustin Rousselet, COO of Robex, declares: "These first drillings demonstrate the significant potential of the eastern zone, which parallels the Nampala deposition with very good grades. The southern extension, and in particular the West Zone, confirms the potential of additions to our existing resources when the campaign is over. Our goal is to expand our resource base in the hope of future expansion of our operations."

NOTE: Gold grades (g/t Au) are expressed uncut and over core length. In most cases, core length is reflecting the vertical extension of the mineralized zones and do not directly reflecting true width of the zones. Values were rounded at 1 decimal point for the length and at 2 decimals point for the assay results.
