Following the exercise of the option by Tantalex to acquire an additional 27% of MINOCOM SAS, Tantalex will hold 52% of the shares of MINOCOM SAS and a Right of First Refusal for the 18% still owned by MINOR SARL.

TANTALEX AMENDS LOI FOR NIOTAZ PROPERTY
Tantalex would also like to announce that further to the binding LOI signed on February 18th with a prospector regarding an earn-in option on the NioTaz property in the province of Quebec, the Phase 1 work program that was scheduled to be performed prior to September 30th did not proceed as planned.
It has therefore been mutually agreed with the prospector to amend it’s binding LOI and that Tantalex will now hold 51% ownership of the property in exchange for future consideration to be negotiated with the prospector. The properties have now been renewed and are valid for the next two years. Tantalex will inform in due time of exploration activities to be performed on the property.
These claims are contiguous to the well-known Crevier property, held by Niobay Metals Inc, which has measured and indicated resources of 25.4M tons of Nb2O5 grading 0,2% and Ta2O5 grading 234 ppm. (NI 43-101 Resources update on Crevier Property, Claude Duplessis, SGS Geostat, July 2010).
The Niotaz showing was only discovered on the claims of Bernard Sénéchal, a prospector, in 2009, when several samples returned anomalous values, including 2,050 ppm Nb and 469 ppm Ta in a grab sample. This showing was resampled in 2012 and returned 1,890 ppm Nb and 508 ppm Ta in a grab sample.
The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Gary Pearse MSc, P. Eng, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).
