VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTCQB:MGXMF) is pleased to report it has been approved to uplist its common stock to the OTCQB® Marketplace effective September 27, 2017. The Company's “MGXMF” trading symbol in the United States will remain unchanged. There is no action required by current shareholders as a result of this change.

MGX operates advanced materials projects across North America. The Company controls two million acres of lithium brine mineral claims and has developed a proprietary, low-energy process that extracts and concentrates minerals such as lithium and magnesium petrolithium (oilfield brine) and naturally occurring salt brine sources while also treating the associated wastewater to produce clean water. This technology has global applications for lithium extraction and clean water. MGX and engineering partner Purlucid Treatment Solutions are currently operating a one cubic meter per hour test plant for bulk sample testing and optimization that was commissioned in July 2017. A five-cubic meter per hour commercial plant (750 barrels of water per day) is near completion and fabrication of fifty cubic meter per hour (7500 bwpd) system has commenced. The process eliminates the time consuming solar evaporation step of traditional lithium extraction from brine using low energy, low cost nano-filtration. The Company has recently taken bulk samples from eight sites, six oil and two mining, which are targeted for high priority evaluation and deployment.  MGX is also currently advancing multiple mineral projects, including the Driftwood Creek magnesium deposit in southeastern British Columbia.

The OTCQB® Venture Market, operated by the OTC Markets Group Inc., offers transparent trading in entrepreneurial and development stage companies that have met a minimum bid price test, are current in their financial reporting and have undergone an annual verification and management certification process. These standards provide a strong baseline of transparency, as well as the technology and regulation to improve the information and trading experience for investors.
