For immediate release.





Vancouver, B.C., Canada – October 22, 2018 
Mag One Products Inc. (the “Company” or “Mag One”) announces that, as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission (the “Commission”), the Cease Trade Order (“Order”) issued by the Commission on May 14, 2018 regarding the Company’s non-compliant financial reporting has now been lifted.

The Company has also taken measures to ensure that these non-compliances will not reoccur. Though alluded to in the Company’s press release of August 22, 2018, along with the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for Q3 2018 (issued August 29, 2018), for purposes of clarity, please find below a list of corrective and preventative measures that have been undertaken by the company:

• The Board has appointed William Thomas, CPA, to be the company’s Chief Financial Officer, as well as Corporate Secretary and Director. Mr. Thomas has over forty years of experience in international finance and has been the CFO for several publicly traded companies. For more information on Mr. Thomas’ impressive credentials and track record, please consult his biography below.

• Given that Mag One’s project activities are primarily based in Quebec, all the Company’s bookkeeping is now being managed by the Montreal office.

• In September, Mag One’s board of directors authorized McMillan LLP, Barristers and Solicitors, as the agent of the Company to maintain and administer the Records Office of the Company.

• Gillian Holcroft, President and Director of Mag One has also assumed the role of Chairman and CEO. As Ms. Holcroft is based in Montreal, Quebec, she is well placed to assume the CEO role and to ensure a rigorous management of Mag One’s accounting and operations.

• Nelson M. Skalbania, co-Founder and former Chairman & CEO of Mag One, has stepped down from a day-to-day role in the Company, but remains on the Board of Directors.

• James G. Blencoe, Co-Founder, Chief Technology Officer and Director of Mag One has stepped down from the Board and has resigned from the Company.

Reinstatement of trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) remains subject to the approval of the CSE (“CSE”) and Mag One will provide further updates on the anticipated timing of trading.

“With our project activities focused in Quebec, combined with a restructured Board that brings with it new rigorous management practices, we now have the foundation to move the development of our game-changing suite of technologies to the next phase of their evolution. Over the past several months the Quebec team has continued to advance the projects and will be reporting upon these exciting developments in the coming weeks”, said Gillian Holcroft, now President & CEO of Mag One.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nelson for his drive and vision and for his confidence in asking me to take over as Chairman and CEO. I will do my utmost to serve our shareholders by bringing value to the Company. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Blencoe for his contributions. And finally, I would like to welcome Bill Thomas to the Company. His experience and strategic approach will be critical in these coming months as we gear up to advance our High Purity Magnesium Oxide demonstration project and advance our Magnesium metal process.”
