Vancouver, British Columbia: May 9, 2018 – Margaux Red Capital Inc. (TSXV-SGMA) (“Margaux”) and Sigma Lithium Resources Inc. (“Sigma”) are pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) has issued its final exchange bulletin for the previously announced Qualifying Transaction for Margaux (the “Transaction”). The common shares of Margaux resumed trading on the TSXV on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 under the new ticker symbol “SGMA” (formerly NEX-MXC.H).
“We are excited to start trading on the TSX Venture Exchange, representing a milestone for Sigma following the four years of exploring and mapping which has resulted in the recent filing of our technical report which estimates significant high grade, hard rock lithium deposits and the potential for significant expansion at our project in Brazil,” says Chief Executive Officer, Calvyn Gardner. “We now have the proceeds to conduct feasibility tests as a result of our $20 million financing completed as part of the Qualifying Transaction and to move forward with our pilot plant ahead of production currently targeted for 2019,” Mr. Gardner adds.
It is expected that shareholder approval will be sought at the upcoming annual meeting of Margaux’s shareholders to be held on or about June 18, 2018 to, among other things, change Margaux’s name to “Sigma Lithium Resources Inc.” and to undertake a consolidation of the outstanding common shares of Margaux.
