VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Kazax Minerals Inc. ("Kazax" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KZX) Further to the Company's news release of July 7, 2014, the Company is pleased to announce it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of convertible unsecured non-interest bearing debentures (the "Debentures") for aggregate proceeds of C$3,200,000 (the "Aggregate Proceeds"). The Private Placement is subject to final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Debentures will mature on and become payable on July 14, 2017 (the "Maturity Date") and are direct, unsecured obligations of the Company, ranking equally with all other unsecured indebtedness of the Company. Upon receipt of (i) all necessary approvals from the Kazakh Ministry of Industry and New Technologies; and (ii) approval by the requisite majority of shareholders of the Company on or before the Maturity Date for the Debentures, the principal amount of the Debentures will automatically be converted into units of the Company (the "Units"); provided, however, (iii) that the Debentures will only be converted into Units where such conversion would not result in a reduction in the existing percentage of common shares of the Company held by persons other than insiders or their associates and affiliates and not subject to resale restrictions.

The conversion of the Debentures into Units shall be at a conversion price of: (i) $0.05 per Unit if conversion occurs within the first year of issuance; and (ii) $0.10 per Unit if conversion occurs within the following two years.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a "Share") of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant (a "Warrant") exercisable to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") until July 14, 2017 at an exercise price of $0.10. In the event that the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Exchange is equal to or exceeds $1.00 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days (the "Acceleration Event"), the Warrants will expire on the date which is 90 calendar days after the Company provides notice that the Acceleration Event has occurred.

The Debentures, and any Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares issued upon conversion of the Debentures or exercise of the Warrants, will be subject to a hold period expiring November 15, 2014.

The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general working capital purposes.
