MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) reported today that its collaborative research partnership with the University of British Columbia (“UBC”) has completed a comprehensive baseline assessment of metallurgical silicon originating from each of the Company’s three silicon projects in southeastern British Columbia. MGX and UBC are working together to develop next-generation Li-ion batteries capable of quadrupling energy density from current 100 Wh/kg up to 400 Wh/kg for use in long-range electric vehicles and grid storage.
MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) is pleased to provide an update for its Gibraltar (“Gibraltar “) and Wonah (“Wonah”) silicon properties located in British Columbia. MGX is investigating the potential to source high-grade silica as a feedstock to be used in industrial silicon metal and solar silicon metal applications.
MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTCQB:MGXMF) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has commenced at its Koot silicon project (“Koot”) north of Cranbrook, BC. and proximate to the Company’s Driftwood Creek magnesium project. Preparations are also underway to commence a drill program on the Wonah silicon project (“Wonah”). Additionally, metallurgical test work has now commenced on mineralized material from the recently acquired Gibraltar silicon project (“Gibraltar”) for assessment of upgrading to standard and solar grade silicon metal. The Summer 2018 drill programs are designed to define initial N.I. 43-101 resource estimates at all three local silicon projects.
