CABORCA, Mexico, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG)(“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that drilling continues at its Santa Elena mine project with no delays and is now on the 7th hole. Five holes were drilled along the Julio Vein-Shear zone for a strike distance of 250 meters with 35 to 40 meter spacing. The purpose is to test the continuity at 25 to 30 meter depths of both the quartz vein and the shear zone that are in the main prospect area. Drill holes proved the continuity at depth of the main quartz vein varying in width from 0.75 m up to 2.0 meters at 25 to 35 meters deep with a dip angle of 45 degrees to the East.
The shallow dipping shear-fault zone also was intercepted and is dipping at a very shallow angle of less than 20 degrees to the SE. This zone becomes the main attractive structure as it varies from 7 to 12 meters in width and consists of fault gouge-mylonite with abundant carbonates as siderite and hematite often carrying quartz fragments.
Hole No. 6, the first deeper hole of 150 meters was very interesting all the way down with several quartz breccia zones and very thick shear zones. Holes No 7 and 8 will be about 150 meters deep but closer to the Julio Shaft area and should intercept the Julio vein at about 100 meters and all the shear zones near the surface. Mexus expects to complete phase 1 of its drilling program by December 1st, 2018.
