(TSX VENTURE:MLN) (“Marlin” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an operating update from its wholly owned La Trinidad mine in Sinaloa, Mexico (“La Trinidad”). Since hitting a vertical projection of the high grade HS Zone in May 2016, Marlin has mined through seven complete six-meter benches and has been consistently mining high grade since September 15, 2016.
Since September 15th, we have placed over 5,890 ounces of gold onto the leach pad with approximately 4,400 ounces coming in October alone. Grades sampled at the crusher are up over 270% from earlier this year at approximately 2.61 grams per tonne compared to approximately 0.70 grams per tonne. Going forward we will crush on average one tonne of mineralized material for each three tonnes of waste mined.
