I-Minerals Files Mine Permit Application With Idaho Department of Lands

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - I-Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IMA) (OTCQX: IMAHF) ("the Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed an Application for Reclamation Plan Approval with the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL). The application contains a description of mine operation and reclamation plans including tailings storage facilities and water quality management measures, approval of which is required before any mining operations can commence. The Company expects a response from IDL to the application within 60 days.

"This is an important step down our path towards production," stated Thomas Conway, President and CEO of I-Minerals. "Filing of the permit application and the Application for Reclamation Plan Approval gets us a step closer to a 'Bankable Feasability Study,' a point at which we would not only have robust economic results, but also the authorization to mine the Bovill Kaolin Deposit, a unique source of four high value mineral products: potassium feldspar, high purity quartz, kaolin, and halloysite."

See the Company's news release of March 8, 2016 wherein it announced the results of its Feasibility Study by GBM engineers, which included an after tax NPV(6%) of US$249.8 million with an after tax IRR of 25.8% with a 3.7 year payback.

Manuel Rauhut, PE (Idaho) of HDR Engineering, a qualified person ("QP") as defined by NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the contents of this release.
