Brazil Minerals, Inc. Provides Updates on New Access Road and Agreement With Investor Group to Purchase Outstanding Convertible Debt

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - Brazil Minerals, Inc. (OTC: BMIX) (the "Company" or "BMIX") provided today a brief overview of certain of its ongoing activities.

As described in a recent press release, BMIX has worked on building a dirt road to connect its large diamond and gold recovery plant to a highly promising dry mineral rights area a few miles away, where it intends to conduct operations for the next several years. The basic road has been completed. Work is now ongoing on the placement of cement tubes on the sides and under certain parts of such road, in a few specific areas, to allow for proper drainage during rainfall. This part of Brazil is dry for most of the year, except for the normal rainy period between December and March. Besides the road drainage system, workers are also depositing layers of pebbles and rocks to the road surface to make it sturdier for the expected heavy truckload traffic. Two photographs of such progress accompany this release.

In other news, the Company was approached by an investor group with U.S. and Asia ties ("U.S./Asia Investor") and agreed to allow such group to purchase any remaining convertible debt of BMIX held by St. George Investments, LLC ("SGI"). Recently, SGI and BMIX entered into an agreement by which SGI gave to BMIX, or any investor agreed to by BMIX, the option to buy back up to the entirety of any convertible debt remaining that is held by SGI at a price equal to 100% the of outstanding principal and accrued interest. The agreement that BMIX has with the U.S./Asia Investor provides that, if any such SGI convertible debt is purchased by the U.S./Asia Investor, any shares issued upon conversions of the purchased debt may not be sold for a period of time. This agreement is a continuation of the Company's strategy to eliminate debt held by "short-term" oriented holders.
