TORONTO, ONTARIO and MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Nov. 10, 2016) - TANTALEX Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX)(CSE:TTX.CN)(FRANKFURT:1T0) ("TANTALEX" or the "Corporation"), is pleased to announce that Mr. Gary Pearse, MSc, P. Eng., will act as the Company's Qualified Person and senior technical advisor to the President and CEO on the Tantalex lithium/tantalum project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Mr. Pearse has more than 40 years of technical experience in rare earths and lithium projects and has advised on exploration and development programs of multiple world class lithium pegmatite and lithium salts projects, including all the major hard rock projects in Canada.

Gary Pearse is one of the world's notable experts in lithium rare earths and other high tech minerals. He will work closely with the Corporation's V-P Operations Mr. Éric Allard. Mr. Pearse is an engineer, economic geologist, metallurgist and mineral economist with over 40 years' experience including geological survey work in Canada and Nigeria and exploration and development in North America and Africa. For much of his career he has worked as a rare metals and industrial minerals consultant, in project management, feasibility, and development. He is especially recognized for his thorough knowledge of rare metal pegmatites and alkaline hosts and for his knowledge of the chemistry and metallurgy of rare-earth and high-tech metals. This work led to novel mineral concentration and hydrometallurgical processes for producing high purity lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate. Mr. Pearse has published more than 100 technical papers on a broad range of mineral industry topics and has delivered numerous oral presentations at international conferences and symposia. Some of his work has been selected for inclusion in reference texts on Canadian mineral economics, some reprinted in books and newspaper articles.

Dave Gagnon, Chief Executive Officer of TANTALEX comments, "We are very pleased that Gary will be providing critical technical direction as we begin our exploration program on our lithium/tantalum project. His extensive knowledge and work experience with industrial minerals, especially Lithium, is unmatched in the industry and will prove to be an invaluable asset to our team."

Mr. Pearse adds, "Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to review a number of projects and the TANTALEX project is of great interest to me. I believe that Dave has assembled an excellent land package and is building a team to properly explore and reveal the true potential of this project. I look forward to contributing to this exciting undertaking."
