VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / November 19, 2015 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) ($XMG:CNX) (FKT: 1MG) is pleased to report that mobilization is underway for the mining of a 100 tonne bulk sample at its flagship Driftwood Creek magnesium project (“Driftwood Creek”). The previously announced bulk sample program (see press release dated November 4, 2015) is expected to commence shortly. Equipment and field crews are scheduled to arrive on site at Driftwood Creek over the next few days, with commencement of the bulk sample program scheduled to begin next week, weather dependent.
