VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / November 20, 2014 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG) is pleased to report that MGX management, consultants and engineers, met with senior regional representatives of the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines (the “Ministry”) on Wednesday, November 19.
Discussions focused on the permitting for the eastern zone of Company’s Driftwood Creek magnesite project in southeastern British Columbia. As a result of this meeting preparation and filing of a mineral lease application with the Mineral Titles branch of the Ministry will commence immediately.
Magnesite in its purest form is 47.6% Magnesium Oxide (“MgO”). Magnesite generally serves as an excellent feedstock for the production of MgO. MgO in turn is a valuable and widely used industrial mineral. Uses of MgO include abrasives, animal feed supplements, chemicals, coatings, construction, electrical, fertilizers, foundries, glass manufacture, insulation, lubricating oils, pharmaceuticals, plastics manufacture, refractory and ceramics, rubber compounding, steel industry, sugar refining, sulfite wood pulping, and wastewater treatment. At this time MGX is focused on the refractory and steel industries.
