Toronto, Canada, July 21, 2014 – BacTech Environmental Corporation (“BacTech”, CSE: BAC, OTC: BCCEF, WKN: A1H4TY) today announced that at the shareholders meeting held on July 3, 2014, shareholders approved the consolidation of the Company’s shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for each five pre-consolidation common shares. The consolidation is subject to acceptance for filing by the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”). The name of the Company will not be changed as a result of the consolidation.
The 56,755,027 Common Shares issued and outstanding prior to the Consolidation, which will be effective as of July 24, 2014, will be consolidated to approximately 11,351,005 Common Shares.

BacTech Environmental Corporation holds the perpetual, exclusive, royalty-free rights to use the patented BACOX bioleaching technology for the reclamation of tailings and mining waste materials. In November 2011, BacTech signed a contract with the Mines Branch of the Manitoba Department of Innovation, Energy and Mines, to remediate an arsenopyrite gold stockpile situated at the Snow Lake Mine in Snow Lake, Manitoba. A second project is under evaluation at Atocha, Bolivia. The Company continues to field enquiries globally with respect to additional opportunities for remediation.
