Robex plans drilling on Wili-Wili and prepares Nampala samples for
metallurgical testing

QUEBEC, March 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Robex Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RBX / FWB: RB4) is pleased to announce that it is currently planning a drilling program on the Wili-Wili and Wili-Wili West permits to test a newly identified gold target referred to as the "Hamdalaye zone" and to upgrade the highly prospective Fandou gold zone discovered in 2007.

    Back to Wili-Wili

A recent field visit to the Wili-Wili and Wili-Wili West permits allowed Robex's exploration team to gain a better understanding of the Hamdalaye gold zone which is presently the focal point of a major gold rush by artisanal miners. The intense artisanal activities now taking place on this zone seems to be centered on a gold rich quartz vein system oriented N-S with a width of at least 275 m. The Hamdalaye zone, located in the northern half of the permits, was originally highlighted by a regional geochemical soil survey completed by the French BRGM in 1987. While Robex has not performed any exploration work on that zone before, management is looking forward with anticipation and excitement to the start of a drill program to test this promising zone. Field work is also being planned in respect to the Fandou gold zone located in the southern part of the permits. Robex will issue a further press release setting out details of the exploration work to be carried out on the Wili-Wili permits as soon as the exploration program is clearly established.

    Nampala update

Robex is pursuing its field activities on the Nampala project and has just completed the logging of the drill cuttings collected during the drilling campaign completed in December 2009. In addition, the field crew has just finished preparing 500 kg of mineralized samples that will be sent to the COREM metallurgical laboratory in Quebec City who will conduct various gold recovery tests on the ore.
