Update: On July 22, following a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, MGX issued a clarification that among other things retracted all previous references to historic mineral resources.
The first tranche of a private placement brought MGX Minerals CSE:XMG $289,999, the company announced July 21. Participants included Marquest FT Inc and the Marquest Asset Management Explorer Series Fund. The flow-through portion of $149,999 goes to the company’s flagship Driftwood Creek magnesium project in southern British Columbia.
While Driftwood works its way through the final stage of a mining lease application process, property acquisitions and project announcements have given the company a steady news flow over the last few months. In early July MGX completed surface sampling at White Moon and Captain, two recently acquired California magnesium properties about five kilometres apart.
Besides holding most of B.C.’s significant magnesite occurrences, MGX acquired the Longworth silica property in central B.C. earlier this month.
