Toronto, Canada, March 21, 2018

BacTech Environmental Corporation (“BacTech” or the “Company”, CSE-BAC, OTC-BCCEF) today announced that it is proceeding with a private placement of units for up to $100,000 at $0.035 per share and has received price protection from the Canadian Stock Exchange in accordance with an exemption from the applicable Policy.

The private placement units consist of one common share of the Company, a full warrant exercisable at $0.05 per share for 2 years and a proportionate share of a Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) on production from the Telamayu tailings project in Bolivia. The full NSR on the $100,000 raise equates to 0.5% of the anticipated production.

Closing of the financing is expected within the next 2 weeks. The proceeds will be used for the final payment of the metallurgical test work that has been ongoing at the University of Oruro in Bolivia as well as general corporate overheads. A press release will be issued shortly outlining the latest results from the metallurgical test work at both Telamayu and Laurentian University.

Project Overview

The Telamayu project involves the environmental remediation of the “Antiguo” tailings with an option on the larger “Nuevo” tailings, both situated at the Telamayu mill site near the town of Atocha in the Department of Potosi in Bolivia. As part of the remediation process BacTech will recover silver, tin, and copper whilst eliminating the acid generating sulphides associated with the tailings.

The existing Telamayu mill concentrator has generated the Antiguo and Nuevo tailings by processing mineralized material from the surrounding mines for over 80 years. There is considerable infrastructure at the mill site including high voltage power, rail, mill housing, and a local workforce. The current infrastructure will contribute to a reduction in capital costs of the project. Currently metallurgical test work is underway to determine the percentage of metal to be recoverable.
