Robex - Latest results on Nampala: wider than expected



    MONTREAL, Jan. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Robex Resources inc (TSX-V: RBX) has
received the results of additional analysis for the drilling conducted in
November on the Nampala gold deposit, located in southern Mali. Initial
results presented by Robex on December 12, 2007, had confirmed the continuity
of the mineralization as well as a grade increase at depth. Recent reports
significantly improve earlier data. A new table of results replaces the one
presented before.

    Following the initial drilling results on Nampala, analyses of
complementary samples were obtained, which further define and increase
significantly some mineralized intersections in drill holes NRC680 and NRC681.
These additional results outline the doubling-up of the deep drilling
intersection reported in drill hole NRC680, and expand the main intersection
reported in hole NRC681 to approximately 10 meters as well as locate an
additional mineralization zone totaling 14 m.
    The deepest hole (NRC680) had revealed at depth a mineralized intersection
of 15 metres grading 2.01 g/t Au; complementary samples have increased this to
26 metres at 2.05 g/t Au. For the whole mineralized zone the total increased
from 20 m to 40 m grading 1.61 g/t Au. In the drill hole NRC681, the new
results have also helped to extend the mineralization. No additional sample
was expected for NRC682.
    The Nampala gold deposit whose mineralization continuity has now been
demonstrated to depth, remains a flagship asset for Robex. With its inferred
resource of 760 000 ounces of gold, and its geological potential, the Nampala
gold deposit currently holds the attention of mining companies that undertook
its assessment.
