About Roxmark Mines
Roxmark Mines Limited is the leader in gold and molybdenum exploration and development in the historically significant Geraldton-Beardmore area of Northwest Ontario. In addition to the Hardrock Project in the Geraldton Camp, Roxmark is pursuing a number of initiatives in the Beardmore Camp, including re-opening the Northern Empire Mine and its onsite mill and expanding the resource base at the Leitch-Sand River Mine, once Canada's richest producing gold mine. In recent years, Roxmark has generated cash flow from bulk-sampled gold and molybdenum processed at its fully-permitted mill and has the advantage of infrastructure from nine formerly highly productive gold mines located on its properties. These mines previously produced nearly four million ounces of gold from high-grade ore but were closed primarily due to boundary issues and dramatically lower gold prices at the time.
On October 13, 2009 Roxmark and Ontex Resources announced their intention to merge, subject to shareholder approval and other conditions, creating a combined company with significantly greater gold resources and land holdings in the Geraldton-Beardmore area-as well as important operational synergies. The merger values each Roxmark share at 0.8 of an Ontex share.
