VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - June 19, 2014) - I-Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IMA)(OTCQX: IMAHF) (the "Company") announces that it has entered into a contract with Pre-Mix, Inc of Pullman Washington ("Pre-Mix) for the sale of up to 30,000 tons per annum of screened k-spar / quartz sand from the Company's WBL Tailings area. The contract has a term of 5 years and may be extended for a further two years through the mutual consent of both I-Minerals and Pre-Mix. Screening of the tailings material and transportation to the Pre-Mix, plant is expected to begin shortly. Pre-Mix purchased approximately 3,000 tons in 2013 and is the second purchaser of the WBL Tailings quartz-feldspar product along with a local municipality.
