VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 22, 2014) -BioteQ Environmental Technologies Inc. (TSX:BQE), a leader in the treatment of mine impacted waters, is pleased to announce that the final payment of $300,000 has been received from NWM Mining under its legal settlement from April 2012.

As a result of the payment, BioteQ will record a one-time recovery of $300,000 in its financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2014.
