Robex Resources: Kiniero Gold District, SGA Complex – Excellent Strike Extension Reserve Delineation Pit Shell Drilling Results

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Robex Resources Inc. (“Robex“, “the Group” or “the Company“) (TSXV: RBX) . is pleased to announce that their strike extension drilling results at the SGA Complex on their property in Guinea have been positive. The SGA Complex, located at the Kiniero Gold Mine, had previously been focused on shallower oxide and transitional ore horizons that targeted the central components of the Gobelé A, B and C mineralized structures, which supported the historical mine start-up in c. 2002. However, historical step out drilling was limited in testing for extensions of the Gobelé mineralized structures that make up the SGA Complex.

In 2020, Robex completed a detailed unbiased remote sensing structural interpretation to gauge the overall prospectivity of the property, which helped identify new exploration targets. This was further supported in 2021 by the acquisition of the gridded data of previous geophysical surveys over the property, which helped identify the strike extensions of the SGA Complex as being prospective.

Based on this new structural interpretation, Robex commenced a strike extension drilling campaign in 2021 at the previously mined SGA Complex. The drilling campaign was designed to both infill and validate the historical drilling data, as well as to step out and test for new strike extensions. Drilling was executed as both RC and DD drilling to test for extensions of this mineralization, both at near-surface through the oxide horizons as well as at depth through the fresh horizons. Drilling continued from 2021 through to 2022, and remains ongoing.

Results of this drilling have been continuously positive and have clearly confirmed and demonstrated the unmined strike extensions of the Gobelé gold bearing system at the SGA Complex, resulting in additional reserve delineations. This reserve delineation drilling supported the recently completed independent Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS, dated 26 August 2022) on the Kiniero Gold Project and had a direct impact on the overall PFS pitshell.

Drilling has increased the strike length of the Gobelé A, B and C mineralized structures of the SGA Complex within the PFS pit shell from ~450m to ~1,000m, and remains open along strike in both directions. The northeastern extension has a pronounced BLEG Au-in-soil footprint extending for an additional ~1.5km, while the southwestern extension is represented by a ~1,000m BLEG Au-in-soil anomaly that end sharply at the Kéléro River, a feature which represents a pronounced geological fault on the property. Highlighted intersections from the north-eastern extension of the SGA Complex strike extension reserve delineation drilling include GDG21-007, GRC21-016, GRC21-018, GRC22-009, GRC22-013, and GRC22-014, all of which have yielded positive results. Drilling remains ongoing at the SGA Complex and continues to validate and infill the historical drilling data.
