CARSON CITY, Nev., Dec. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) CEO/ President Paul Thompson visited the Santa Elena mine in Sonora State Mexico from December 13th through the 17th. Mr. Thompson reports that the Merrill Crowe is being installed and will be operational in January 2017.
In addition, the company announced that fresh ore is being crushed and stacked on the pads. The mine site is currently using Mexus’ 1236 jaw crusher and impacting system. It was recently determined that this system will not meet the production goals for the mine. Mexus JV partner, MarMar Holdings, made the decision to increase production by installing a 42” jaw crushing system. This crusher should be in place shortly and will be added to Mexus’ 54” closed cone screen plant to increase the overall output.
