Portex Minerals Inc. Update on Northern Ireland Exploration Licenses

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2014) - Portex Minerals Inc. ("Portex" or the "Company") (CSE:PAX) announces that, after many discussions with the Minerals & Petroleum Branch of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (the "Department") of Northern Ireland, the Department has caused all existing mineral exploration licenses held by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Metallum Resources Ltd. ("Metallum") to terminate effective October 31, 2014. In addition, it has rejected Metallum's applications for renewal of certain licenses. Metallum no longer has any mineral exploration licenses in Northern Ireland.

Peter Chodos, President and Chief Executive Officer of Portex, commented: "We are extremely disappointed that our subsidiary, Metallum Exploration Ltd., no longer has exploration licenses in Northern Ireland. Metallum has been unable to complete required exploration work and reporting to the Department as a result of extreme liquidity constraints due to poor market conditions for junior exploration companies."
