Mexus begins work on its open heap leach pad with all permits in hand


CARSON CITY, Nev., April 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced today that the environmental and mining permits are complete and work has begun on the area that will become Mexus’ open pit heap leach mine.  An area 300 meters by 100 meters is being cleared and leveled for the pad. (See Attached Photos) Mexus intends to open pit the shear zone where the Julio high grade quartz vein faulted to the west as identified by Director of Operations Cesar Lemas.   The shear zone and the Julio quartz vein will be mined simultaneously with strict grade control.  The shear zone ore has graded 1 to 5 grams per ton with the Julio assays running much higher and includes visible gold. Mexus believes that mining the Julio quartz vein from the surface along with the shear zone makes the most sense. The shear zone material will be crushed to ¾” minus then placed on the leach pad. The Julio high grade will go straight to Mexus’ crusher ball mill gravity recovery plant. The tailings from the gravity recovery plant will also be placed on the heap.
