Medallion Announces Change to Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 22, 2016) - Medallion Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: MDL)(OTC PINK: MLLOF) ("Medallion" or the "Company"), today announced that Dr. Bill Bird is leaving the Board of Directors of the Company after many years of service. 

"Dr. Bird has been a key driver of Medallion's initiatives for many years and is the originator of Medallion's rare-earth processing business model," said David Haber, Chair of Medallion's Board. "Although we anticipate Bill will still provide his extensive expertise to the Company as a technical advisor, he has decided to resign from his duties as a board member. We'd like to thank Bill for almost twenty years of service on the Board." 

The Company is planning to appoint a new director in due course; ideally one providing experience and expertise in line with its corporate direction of becoming a significant value-added mineral processor. Medallion also plans to add new advisors to help maximize value from the Company's monazite-based rare-earth extraction process.

About Medallion Resources

Medallion is focused on low-cost, near-term, rare-earth production by exploiting the mineral monazite. Monazite is a rare-earth phosphate that is available as a by-product of existing mining and mineral-sands sources, principally in the Indian Ocean basin. Rare earths are used in critical components for virtually all computing and mobile electronic products, as well as wind turbines, electric and hybrid vehicles, and strategic defense systems. Medallion is committed to following best practices and accepted international standards in all aspects of mineral processing and the safe management of waste materials.
