Sudbury, Ontario CANADA, May 07, 2014 /FSC/ - Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSX.V: HLM),is a mining exploration company which is actively exploring for rare metals lithium, tantalum, rubidium and cesium by currently advancing its 100% owned and optioned PAK Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada. HLM is pleased to report that it has received a positive response from two creditors concerning a "Shares for Debt Financing". HLM proposes to issue up to 3,991,900 common shares at a price of $0.08. The financing is subject to regulatory approval and would have a hold period of four months.
$200,000 of debt is owed to a company owned by one "non-arm's length" individual. The non-arm's length portion of the proposed financing is therefore 2,500,000 common shares at a price of $0.08 per share.
$34,352 of debt is owed to another company owned by one "non-arm's length" individual. The non-arm's length portion of the proposed financing is therefore 429,400 common shares at a price of $0.08 per share.
A $85,000 debt is owed to one "non-arm's length" individual. This non arm's length portion of the financing is therefore 1,062,500 common shares at a price of $0.08 per share.
Management believes that the proposed Shares for Debt financing will strengthen the balance sheet and increase the attractiveness of the Company for future financings.
About the PAK Rare Metals Project
The PAK Rare Metals Project lies close to the boundary between two geological sub-provinces in northwestern Ontario and hosts a rare metals pegmatite deposit. The deposit is a LCT (lithium, cesium, tantalum) classified pegmatite. These rare types of deposits have been the principal source of hard rock lithium, tantalum, rubidium and cesium ores mined in the world.
HLM is actively developing its 100% owned and optioned project which contains the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite. The deposit has a current NI-43.101 compliant Inferred Resource of 6.89million tonnes of 1.86% Li2O Eq. Within the deposit, the pegmatite uniquely hosts 1.17million tonnes grading 3.44% Li2O in a technical/ceramic grade spodumene lithium zone (UIZ) with low inherent iron content. The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite has a 265m strike length with an estimated width varying from 45 to 125m with a sub-vertical orientation of the pegmatite. The resource remains open to depth and along strike to the northwest and southeast. An 8-hole, 1,500m Phase II diamond drill program was completed in late March 2014 whereby assay results have yet to be disseminated.
