DENVILLE, N.J., April 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lantis Laser Inc. (OTCQB:LLSR), announced today it has signed the final definitive Agreement to merge with TAG Minerals Inc. ("TAG"). In the view of the management of both companies, Lantis' merger with TAG puts the company in the potential position to execute its business model on all fronts. TAG's management believes that with the price of gold breaking through the $1500 an ounce barrier, the timing is good for TAG to gear up and transition to full-scale mining operations in Zimbabwe. TAG has become Lantis' second wholly-owned subsidiary, with Lantis' first wholly-owned subsidiary, Lantis Laser, Inc., a New Jersey corporation, continuing to house its innovative dental technology programs.

Stan Baron, President of Lantis, said, "The merger with TAG Minerals is a bold move that opens up many exciting possibilities and opportunities, which we believe will begin to serve Lantis and its shareholders in a positive way, going forward." 

TAG intends to commence mineral production within the next 3 months, the first mineral being gold. Tapiwa Gurupira, local partner in Zimbabwe, and a director and principal of TAG added, "TAG has been exploring and bulk sampling miles of riverbed soils rich with gold bearing sands for over one year now. We are ready to begin the process of pegging and staking out the most promising areas that were explored and identified as having economically viable deposits, utilizing state of the art HPC-10 gold recovery and mineral separation machinery."

The final closing of the Agreement is expected to take place within 30 days.
