Mexus Gold US – Santa Elena Project Update

CABORCA, SONORA STATE, MEXICO, May 15th, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG)(“Mexus” or the “Company”) gave an update on its Santa Elena project located near Caborca, Mexico. The project continues as expected with the usual growing pains for an expanding miner. Our joint venture and operating partner for the project, MarMar Holdings, has made consistent and steady progress at the mine site. To date, MarMar has constructed two holding ponds, a heap leach pad, performed an initial blast of a quartz vein, started a cyanide drip system on the heap leach pad, and started the Merrill Crowe recovery system. In addition, they also performed a test smelt and produced a small amount of dore using precipitate from the Merrill Crowe plant. These accomplishments are significant and show a determination to bring this project into full production.
MarMar has big plans for this project moving forward. There is currently 250 pounds of precipitate in secured storage ready to smelt. This material is the output from the initial leaching of pad 1. Smelting will begin when on site engineers are assured they have the proper flux mix to ensure no gold is being lost within the process. It is expected that smelting will begin in earnest the week of May 15th.
