VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 1, 2020 / MGX Minerals Inc. ("MGX" or the "Company") (CSE:XMG ) (FKT:1MG) (OTC PINK:MGXMF) is pleased to announce that a field crew, has reached the Heino-Money Deposit mine portal and drill core storage area. Previously, the field crew had cleared 11km of mine access road at the end of 14km of active logging road, connected to the main British Columbia highway system and reached the previously constructed 75 man camp. Access by road in snow, up to eight feet, prevented further progress on the ground. Utilizing helicopter support, based out of Nakusp, British Columbia allowed the field crew to reconnaissance the area and land at the core storage area. The field crew has identified over 30 drill core storage racks, containing up to 10 x 10 drill core storage boxes each (Image 1). A vast amount of core appears to be labelled, organized by year and in good condition with visible mineralization (Image 2). In excess of 400 diamond drill holes, representing over 40,000 meters, are reported to have been completed by previous owners, approximately half of which were drilled from 5 levels of underground development.

Heino-MoneyGold Deposit Mine Portal
The Henio-Money Gold Mine Portal has been located. The portal is located approximately 800 meters from the core storage area along a steep ridge. Covered in deep snow, structures, rail, and piping associated with the mine were discovered providing the exact location of the portal. The location provides access to the upper level of the mine where previous drilling and bulk sampling has occurred.
