Lithium Exploration Group's Largest Lender Agrees to a Moratorium on Conversions While Discussions to Restructure $1.4MM Debt Are Ongoing

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2013) - Lithium Exploration Group Inc. (OTCQB: LEXG) announced today that it is in discussions with its largest debt holder, JDF Capital, to restructure their existing debt. It is expected that a deal will be finalized before January 6, 2014. JDF Capital has agreed not to convert any of the existing notes between now and that date while a deal is in process. The company hopes that this restructuring will free up its balance sheet and provide some anti-dilutive features to protect the capital structure and shareholders. 

JDF Capital invested more than one million dollars in LEXG in 2013. Their capital supported the Morinville facility acquisition in October and this weekend that asset produced its first revenue since the Alta Disposal team restarted it. 

"We set out to make the Morinville facility a profitable venture. We have set the capacity at 2500 cubic meters per month for the first few months while we ramp up operations. We already have indications that we will meet those levels in our first month of operations. That production translates to approximately $20,000 in revenue and will make the facility profitable right out of the gate," commented CEO Alex Walsh. "JDF believes in what we are doing and is fully supportive of our efforts on the ultrasonic technology and in the disposal business. JDF's investment in our company has always been for the long haul and, together, we are working to show our shareholders that we are committed to protecting their interests."
