MagIndustries Financing Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 2, 2015) - MagIndustries Corp. (TSX:MAA) (the "Company" or "MagIndustries") announced on November 13, 2013 that it had received a Letter of Commitment (the "LOC") from the China Development Bank ("CDB") related to the majority of the funding required to complete the construction of its proposed 1.2 million tonnes per annum Mengo Potash Project in the Republic of Congo (the "Mengo Project"). The Company's loan application to CDB remains active. The Company understands that delays in approval of the application relate to a more conservative lending environment and tighter fiscal controls in China. MagIndustries continues to work toward approval of the CDB loan but can provide no guidance at this time as to the timeline or outcome of the approval process.

As a part of project financing and for general operations, the Company continues to seek investment in the Company and/or the Mengo Project from potential strategic partners and discussions to this end are ongoing with various interested parties in China. The Company currently has no developments to report in this regard buts looks forward to making timely disclosure on future financings as circumstances warrant.

Current operations of the Company are funded under the Evergreen loan agreements as approved by a majority of MagIndustries' shareholders at a Special Meeting of Shareholders held on May 7, 2014. (See the Company's press releases of May 8, 2014 and May 16, 2014).
