CSE:XMG, MGX Minerals, lithium,

MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / OTCQB: MGXMF / FKT: 1MG) is pleased to report completion of the previously announced Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) survey at the Salinitas lithium brine project (the “Project”) located in the Salinas Grande Salar of northwest Argentina. The TDEM geophysical survey was conducted across 52 stations at 500 meter totaling approximately 26 kilometers. Data compilation is underway and interpretation is expected to begin shortly. Based on interpretation of the TDEM data, the Company is now preparing to carry out trenching as well as an auger drilling program to test for shallow, near surface brines that contain anomalous concentrations of lithium and other elements correlated with geophysics in preparation for definition of drill targets.[...] read more

MGX Minerals Drills Up to 105 Meters of 98.7% Silica at Koot Silicon Project

CSE:XMG, MGX Minerals, lithium,

MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) is pleased to report results of diamond drilling from its Koot silicon project (“Koot”) north of Cranbrook, British Columbia. Nine drill holes were completed across 50 meter spacings to further expand known mineralization within the North and South zones. Five drill holes were located in the North Zone and were collared in quartzite and ended in quartzite. Four holes collared in the South Zone started in quartzite and two out of four holes ended in quartzite. The Company began evaluation of commercial applications for silica with silicon processing experts DORFNER ANZAPLAN this Spring; including testing of material for upgrading of metallurgical grade and solar-grade silicon with results expected shortly.[...] read more

MGX Announces Drilling at Kibby Basin, Nevada Lithium Brine Project

CSE:XMG, MGX Minerals, lithium,

MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) is pleased to announce that drilling has  commenced at the Kibby Basin, Nevada lithium brine property (“Kibby Basin” or the “Property”). The drill program is being conducted by Harris Exploration Drilling & Associates Inc. (“Harris”). Harris has extensive experience drilling Clayton Valley lithium brines.  Clayton Valley is the home of Abermarle’s Silver Peak Mine, the only US lithium producer and is located 50km to the South of the Kibby Basin. Eight drill targets were generated based on results from a Quantec MT geophysical survey completed in January. The proposed drill holes are designed to test a large MT conductor which may represent aquifers containing lithium brines. The drill holes have been designed to intercept the MT anomaly starting at depths of 325 m (1065 ft.) and continue to as deep as 760 m (2500 ft.). The objective is to determine the nature of the conductor, collect sediment samples for lithium analyses, identify aquifers and sample water and any brines encountered.[...] read more

MGX Minerals Commences Laboratory Bench-Scale Testing of Thermochemical Process to Extract Lithium from Spodumene; Case Lake Lithium Project Bulk Sample Testing Underway

CSE:XMG, MGX Minerals, lithium,

MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTC: MGXMF) is pleased to announce that Orion Laboratories, LLC (“Orion”) and Light Metals International Inc. (“LMI”) have commenced laboratory bench-scale testing of a 10 kilogram bulk sample of spodumene-rich rock originating from the Case Lake lithium project in Ontario. The mineralized material is currently undergoing chemical and mineralogical homogeneity testing, with the objective of extracting lithium compounds and achieving a 95% pure spodumene concentrate. Results of testing performed to date by Orion and LMI indicate that this level of spodumene purity is achievable. Once bench-scale testing has been completed to a satisfactory level, additional mineral separation testing will be conducted to further develop the hydrothermal leaching processes in order to purify high-grade spodumene concentrate.[...] read more
