Toronto, Ontario – November 21, 2016 – PJX Resources Inc.

The Offering was closed in two tranches with the aggregate issuance of 15,045,666 million units for total proceeds of $2,402,190.
“The positive market response and demand for our financing has provided additional funds to explore the deposit potential of our gold and base metal (zinc, lead, copper) properties” states the President and CEO of PJX, John Keating. “In addition, metal prices have strengthened recently with zinc hitting a high of US$ 1.17/lb. This is about a 70% increase from a low of US$ 0.68/lb one year ago. Our next phase of exploration will include drilling on our Vine Property to test multiple targets for zinc-lead-silver mineralization similar to the Sullivan deposit located 35 km north of the property. The Vine property is accessible by road all year.”
