The completion of the Offering constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”) as certain insiders of the Company participated in the Offering.

The Offering is subject to TSXV Exchange approval.
PJX Resources Inc. has consolidated 100% of the mineral rights to the largest land holdings in the Sullivan Mining District. We have also identified over 20 target areas with potential to host gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead and/or cobalt deposits. Exploration to date has increased the potential to discover multiple deposits in the Mining District. The following Pyramid to Discovery diagram helps explain the strategy.
In the last six months the Company has announced new orogenic gold and intrusive related gold, copper and/or cobalt targets called GAR, Lewis Ridge, Tackle Creek and Wuho Creek. These are in addition to Sullivan type massive sulphide zinc-lead-silver targets on PJX’s Vine Property and DD Property. PJX’s high-grade David Gold Zone was drilled in October to test along strike and down the possible plunge of gold mineralization. Gold results from this drilling are expected in the New Year.
PJX plans to continue to develop strategic partnerships to advance some targets to discovery. DLP Resources plans to drill next year to test Sullivan type zinc, lead, silver targets toward earning an interest in PJX’s DD Property. Osisko Royalties acquired a 0.5% royalty interest this year on four of PJX’s gold properties.
“By consolidating the land position in one Mining District we increase the potential to make a discovery.” states John Keating, President and CEO of PJX Resources. “Discoveries also have a greater chance of going into production given the existing roads, rail, power and other infrastructure. In addition, the benefits of mining to local First Nations and other communities can be intergenerational in opportunity through employment, education, health and other benefits.”
PJX’s strategy to focus on one Mining District has allowed the company to understand the geology and controls on mineralization better than having properties in various locations around Canada or the world. The knowledge gained from exploring one target area is often applicable to other areas because the targets are all part of the same geological environment and large mineralizing system that underlies the Mining District. (see map of Sullivan Mining District and Vulcan Gold Belt below).
The geological disclosure and content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by John Keating P.Geo. (qualified persons for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.
