MGX Minerals (C:XMG) Issues Clarification on Previously Issued Technical Disclosure

MGX Minerals Inc. wishes to retract the potentially misleading statements disseminated in the Feb. 2, 2017, press release.

At the request of Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada, MGX Minerals Inc. wishes to retract the potentially misleading statements disseminated in the Feb. 2, 2017, press release.

The Company retracts the statement that its patent pending lithium extraction process may “potentially reduce recovery times of lithium and other valuable minerals from 18 months to one day” as the statement is not supported by an independent technical report. The Company also retracts any previous representation or inference of production or extreme reduction in recovery times previously made.

The Company retracts the statement of “8.3 million tonnes grading 43.41% magnesium oxide” as it did not disclose applicable mineral resource categories as outlined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure, Section 2.2. The Company wishes to clarify and properly disclose mineral resources as 2.828 million tonnes grading 43.24% magnesium oxide in the Measured category and 5.2 million tonnes grading 43.29% magnesium oxide in the Indicated category.

The Company retracts the statement “representing over one million barrels of brine production per day” as it is not supported by a preliminary economic assessment or mining study outlining the economic viability of the project.
