Moscow, Russia / TheNewswire / March 4, 2016 - Mangazeya Mining Ltd.. (the "Company" or "Mangazeya") (NEX: "MGZ.H") announces that it has completed a shares for debt transaction (the "Transaction") with Mangazeya Center LLC, a company wholly owned by Mr. Sergey Yanchukov, the Chief Executive Officer and controlling shareholder of the Company (the "Controlling Shareholder"). The Transaction received the NEX's approval. Pursuant to the Transaction, the Company has settled CAD$201,230,563.54 of debt by issuing 804,922,254 Common Shares to the Controlling Shareholder at a deemed price of $0.25 per Common Share (the "Share Price").
