Canadian Mining Firm

Robex currently owns two assets in the highly prospective Birimian Greenstone belt: the Nampala producing gold mine in Mali, and the Kiniero Gold Project in Guinea (Conakry).

Robex is also active in exploration with drilling campaigns underway across its West African properties.

The Company intends to become a multi-mine, multi-jurisdiction gold producer in West Africa once the Kiniero Gold Project would be in production. Robex’s ambition is to continue to grow its asset base while committed to operating assets in an efficient, safe, responsible, and sustainable way.

Robex aims at being closer to communities, closer to its workers, more human in the mines the Company is operating.
