Robex announces preliminary laboratory results from its drilling program on
Nampala

QUEBEC, Jan. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RBX / FWB: RB4) is pleased to announce the preliminary analytical results from its recent drilling program on the Nampala deposit located on the Mininko permit in Southern Mali. These partial results are encouraging and comparable with previous drilling on Nampala. The best analytical results provided by the laboratory to date reveal grades of 1,61 g/t over 31 meters in hole number NRC09047 including 2,09 g/t over 20 meters.

Between November 23 and December 18, 2009, a total of 8,324 meters of air core and reverse circulation drilling (AC and RC) were completed in 119 drill holes over Lens 100 of the deposit, where previous drilling has outlined inferred resources of 675,000 ounces of gold (22.5 million tonnes at an average grade of 0.93 g/t Au). These resources are developed between the surface and a vertical depth of 150 meters (see technical report 43-101 at www.robexgold.com).

The objective of the drilling campaign was to achieve a 25 meters x 25 meters drilling pattern to confirm and upgrade the resource base of a portion of Lens 100 between surface and vertical depth of about 80 meters where an inferred resource of 256,000 ounces of gold contained in 8,4 million tonnes of ore at an average grade of 0.95 g/t Au has been outlined by previous drilling in the oxidized and transitional portion of the deposit. Drilling was oriented towards the east at angles of -50 degrees and -70 degrees. Sampling was done by intervals of one meter. Quality control samples including sample duplicates, blanks and standards were inserted at regular intervals during the sampling procedure and all samples were sent for gold analysis to ALS Chemex Laboratory in Bamako, Mali.

The following table presents the best analytical results provided by the laboratory to date. They have been extracted from about 2 000 samples distributed in 21 holes. While these positive results show similarities with previous drilling on Lens 100, note that they are only partial and may not be representative of the average gold grade of that portion of Lens 100 covered by the drilling program. Mineralized intersections presented in the table below are drilling lengths and may not necessarily represent the true width of mineralization.
