VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 20, 2016) - Magellan Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MNM) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the regulatory approvals necessary to proceed with its previously announced debt settlement transaction involving the exchange of $500,000 of liabilities due to certain members of management for, among other things, the Company's interest in its Brazilian subsidiary, Magellan Minerais Prospecção Geológica Ltda.
