Robex announces the appointment of André Vézina and Michel Doyon as new Board

QUEBEC, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RBX / FWB: RB4) is pleased to announce the nomination of Mr. André Vézina and Mr. Michel Doyon to its Board of Directors. They will replace Mr. André Gagné and Mr. Peter Hawley, who have stepped aside to make room for them. This decision will allow Mr. Gagné to dedicate all his time and effort to his role as CEO of the company and to leading Robex towards the achievement of its ultimate goal of becoming a gold producing company. As for Mr Hawley, he will continue to act as a consultant for Robex.

    Mr. André Vézina

Mr. Vézina has a long history with Robex. Not so long ago, for a five-year period, he was Robex's vice-president and, while at that position, his contributions were very significant. His demonstrated skills and abilities in the sphere of capital raising and his deep understanding of the company's needs and capabilities will now be again a considerable asset for Robex. M. Vézina comes with a strong business administration background, especially with respect to financial and human resources management. Furthermore, Robex will greatly benefit from his vast business experience and his strong network of influence in the country of Mali. In 2004, Mr Vézina was appointed Commercial Attaché for the Republic of Mali. He is also president and founder of Mali Oil Development, a company based in Mali's capital city of Bamako, and co-founder of Mali Energy, now operating under the name of Centric Energy Corp (TSX-V: CTE), a company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) with offices in Vancouver and London. As well, Mr. Vézina is currently involved in investor relations for listed company Scorpio Mining Corp (TSX: SPM), while having played that role before for Niogold Mining Corp (TSX-V: NOX). Aside from his business-orientated roles, Mr. Vézina was recently nominated Honorary Colonel of the 55 Field Ambulance.
