QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/18 -- Robex Resources Inc. ("Robex" and / or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE: RBX)(FRANKFURT: RB4) is pleased to announce that the Nampala mine in Mali, has reached an average processing speed of 5,200 tonnes of ore. The constant improvements that have been made in 2017 to the technical, industrial and organizational processes have paid off.
The results of the last 90 days confirm that this production has stabilized and that this is expected to continue over time.
Increase in gold sales
The Company sold a total of 34,801 ounces (1,082 kg) during 2017, an average of 2,900 ounces (90 kg) per month. The recent increase in Nampala's production therefore has a direct influence on gold sales as the Company has significantly increased their gold sales during the months of January and February 2018. The company plans to finish the first quarter of 2018 with a strong increase in sales compared to the average for the year 2017. The sales of the last three full months (December 2017, January and February 2018) were of 13,162 oz (409 kg), an average of 4,387 ounces (136 kg) per month.
In addition, ROBEX welcomes the performance achieved in terms of controlling fixed and variable costs, which positions the company at a very satisfactory level of financial performance and will further seek improvements.
2017 annual financial results
The Company will publish, on April 26, their consolidated financial statements and their management report for the year ended December 31, 2017.
