VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 22, 2020 / MGX Minerals Inc. ("MGX" or the "Company") (CSE:XMG)(FKT:1MG)(OTC PINK:MGXMF) is pleased to announce that a field crew including MGX Vice President of Exploration and Vice President of Operations have mobilized to the Heino-Money Deposit and Tillicum Claims. The field crew has cleared 11km of mine access road at the end of 14km of active logging road, connected to the main British Columbia highway system. With the exception of seasonal snow and occasional forestry debris, the mine access and logging roads are in excellent condition and appear suitable for haulage. The field crew has now reached the previously constructed 75 man camp and begun assessing the existing structures. The field crew expects to reach the core storage shortly, where approximately 40,000 meters of diamond drill core is reported to be stored. In excess of 400 diamond drill holes are reported to have been completed by previous owners, approximately half of which were drilled from 5 levels of underground development. In the coming weeks, the field crew plans to attempt to reach the multiple existing mine portals. Current site activities are in support of a Technical Report expected to be prepared in accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") and filed in June, as well as preparation for structural engineering review for the purpose of underground bulk sampling. Previous production at the property included a 5,503 ton bulk sample grading 0.599 ounces per ton in 1993 from the Heino-Money Zone processed using gravity separation and flotation. See British Columbia MINFILE 082FNW234 for detailed information regarding the deposit and claims.

Further, the group of concerned shareholders that requisitioned an annual general meeting of shareholders in a press release dated March 8, 2020 (the "Dissident Group") appears to be polluting the public domain with allegations against the Company.
These actions threaten the important initiatives underway to maximize the Company's potential, and to undermine shareholders' rights, and continue to divert resources away from the Company's operations. While MGX's Management remains focused on adding value to the Company, MGX is working to ensure that the interest of the public and all shareholders are protected and will not hesitate to take legal action as required to defend the interests of its shareholders.
All shares associated with the Heino-Money Gold and Tillicum Claims transaction, as well as share issuance for data acquisition will be deemed non-voting at the upcoming Annual General Meeting. The vendors of the Heino-Money and Tillicum claims are Gustafson Holdings Ltd. and 1240089 B.C. Ltd., the vendor of the geological data is Dykes Geologic Systems Inc.
