Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MLN) (“Marlin“) is pleased to announce that it has executed a new mining contract that will nearly double the Company’s mining rate at its La Trinidad mine in Sinaloa, Mexico. The new contract has a minimum tonnage guarantee of 1.5 million tonnes per month, which is nearly twice the current mining rate. Fleet mobilization has commenced, and we expect to be mining with this new fleet in early March. This will allow Marlin to begin accessing the high grade HS Zone of its La Trinidad mine in the second quarter of 2016. The Company has 4.2 million tonnes of waste to remove at La Trinidad, at which time the high grade HS Zone will make Marlin one of the lowest cost operations globally.
