Almaden Minerals Ltd. is pleased to announce the results of preliminary scoping-level metallurgy performed by Blue Coast Research Ltd, and reviewed and summarised below by Dr. Andrew Bamber, P.Eng., as well as the maiden National Instrument 43-101 compliant Mineral Resource Estimate on the Ixtaca Zone of its 100% owned Tuligtic Gold-Silver Project Mexico performed by Giroux Consultants Ltd.
