MONTREAL, Québec – December 13, 2017 – Argex Titanium Inc. (TSX: RGX) (“Argex”) is pleased to announce that it has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange for a private placement of a maximum of 20,000,000 “hard-dollar” units (“HD Units”) and a maximum of 10,000,000 “flow-through” units (“FT Units”) at a price of $0.05 per unit, for maximum gross proceeds to Argex of $1.5 million. Argex expects that a first closing of the private placement will take place on or about December 15, 2017.
Each of the HD Units will be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant while each of the FT Units will be comprised of one “flow-through” common share and one-half common share purchase warrant.

Argex will use the proceeds from the sale of the FT Units for exploration on its Lac Brûlé iron-titanium (Fe-Ti) property in Québec and the net proceeds from the sale of the HD Units for working capital.
The units are being offered to “accredited investors” in some or all of the provinces of Canada and in other jurisdictions, if any, determined by Argex.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities described herein, and these securities will not be offered or sold in any jurisdiction in which their offer or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), or any state securities laws of the United States.
