MGX Minerals Issues Clarification of Previously Issued Technical Disclosure

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / May 17, 2016 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG), as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, is issuing this news release to clarify its disclosure regarding the Company's Alberta Lithium Properties process design and scoping study (the "Study"), as described in its news releases dated April 14, 2016 and May 9, 2016.

Concerning its news release on April 14, 2016, the Company wishes to retract the statement that the Study provided "a positive basis to move forward" with development of the Alberta Mineral Properties. In its news release dated May 9, 2016, the Company wishes to retract the statement that the Study's CAPEX plan provides a positive basis for the Company to proceed with engineering of an initial 20,000 bpd lithium carbonate production plant. For both of the above news releases, the Company wishes to retract the statements concerning the Study's recommendations and OPEX calculations to process lithium-bearing brine of 20,000 barrels per day in a commercial plant.

The Company's retracted statements could be interpreted as being an economic analysis based on inferred mineral estimate for the Alberta Lithium Properties. The Company confirms it has not completed a mineral estimate of the Alberta Lithium Properties and that the Study's purpose was solely to develop a process design, not to provide a preliminary economic assessment.

Readers are also cautioned that the Company has not completed a pre-feasibility or feasibility study which establishes mineral reserves with demonstrated economic and technical viability. Further, the Company cautions readers that any potential production may not be economically feasible and historically projects taken to production without establishing reserves through a feasibility study have a much higher risk of economic or technical failure.
