TORONTO, CANADA and MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwired - July 11, 2016) - TANTALEX Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX)(FRANKFURT:1T0) ("TANTALEX" or the "Corporation"), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, United Materials Congo SARL ("UNITED MATERIALS" or "UMC"), located in the Katanga province of Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC"), has signed a definitive agreement with a third local mining cooperative (refer to June 8 and June 30, 2016 press releases), namely La COMIPAK, whereby COMIPAK will become a sub-contractor to UMC, and as such, will supply UMC exclusively to the entirety of the Tantalum concentrate it produces.

Dave GAGNON, Chief Executive Officer of TANTALEX, explains: "The team is very excited to have signed a third agreement for Tantalum. This is a direct reflection of our Company's business strategy coming to fruition. We are very quickly consolidating significant and reliable sources of Tantalum Pentoxide (Ta205) within the region of Katanga, a region that is rich in this valuable resource and that has a friendly mining jurisdiction, as well as a safe and equitable work environment. With each new agreement that we sign, Tantalex is gaining an important foothold in terms of market share in the sector of high-tech minerals, where only a few players currently exist. Furthermore, with the recent closing of a considerable private placement, we are getting the support and confidence from the market to continue on with our strategy."
