Globex Private Placement

Globex has entered into an engagement letter with Marquest Asset Management Inc., as co-lead agent with Casimir Capital Ltd., for a private placement of up to 2,778,846 "flow-through" shares at a price of $1.30 per share, for maximum gross proceeds to Globex of $3,612,500, and up to 607,142 common shares at a price of $1.05 per share, for maximum gross proceeds to Globex of $637,500.

Globex will use the proceeds from the issuance of the "flow-through" shares for exploration on its properties in Quebec and Ontario, and will use the net proceeds from the issuance of the common shares for potential land acquisitions and working capital.

Purchasers of the "flow-through" shares will be entitled to claim a 100% deduction of the amount of their subscription for Canadian federal and Quebec provincial tax purposes, for the 2012 taxation year, and individual purchasers will be entitled to claim an additional 15% federal investment tax credit in respect of such expenditures. Individual purchasers of "flow-through" shares resident in Quebec will be entitled to two additional deductions of 25% each, while individual purchasers of "flow-through" shares resident in Ontario will be entitled to an additional deduction of 5%.

The Globex private placement is expected to close during the week of November 5, 2012.
