Jacques Trottier, Ph.D. in Geology, joins Robex Board of Directors

QUEBEC CITY, June 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RBX / FWB: RB4) is proud to announce the nomination of Dr. Jacques Trottier, Ph.D. Geology, to its Board of Directors. Doctor Trottier nomination as well as the recent nomination of Mr. Richard Faucher (see May 31st press release), both fit into the company's plan to strengthen the team's technical expertise.

Dr.Trottier, an expert geologist, is renowned for the quality and diversity of his research projects spanning the entire globe over the last 2 decades. His contribution to the reputation of the Quebec and Canadian mining industries, both locally and internationally, is worth mentioning.

Dr. Trottier received his Ph.D in Geological Engineering from l'École Polytechnique de Montréal (1987), a Bachelor's Degree in Geology (1978) and a Master's Degree in Geochemistry from UQAM (1982). Dr. Jacques Trottier worked as a teaching assistant lecturer from 1981 to 1986 at UQAM's Department of Earth Sciences and then as a substitute teacher in charge of the Neutron Activation Laboratory. Over the course of his academic career, Dr. Trottier has published numerous articles in several international publications such as Economic Geology and Mineralium Deposita. Recognized by his colleagues for his expertise in geology and his entrepreneurship, he was awarded the Annual Geoscience Award from the Association of Professional Geologists and Geophysicists of Quebec (APGGQ) in 1993.

In 1996, he founded and was President of Sulliden Exploration Inc. and developed some promising partnerships in Peru. Among his realisations are the discovery of two cupro-auriferous porphyry systems (Cementerio and San Antonio) as well as a massive sulphide zone with a high concentration of Zn-Ag-Pb (PunaPuna) located in the north and central part of the country, respectively. This later discovery led him to be awarded the title of Peru's Prospector of the Year in 2000 by the Honor al Mérito Minero Expert Committee. Mr. Trottier is currently CEO of Exploration Amex Inc. established in Quebec and Mexico.

The Board of Directors has agreed to grant 250 000 stock options to Dr. Trottier for the purchase of as many regular Robex shares at $0.17 each. These options have a 5-year limit and are subject to a 4-months retention period from the date they are granted.

Robex would like to thank Mr. André Vézina who is relinquishing his position with the Board of Directors, for his much appreciated support during the company's recovery period.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
