CARSON CITY, Nev., Jan. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (MXSG)(“Mexus” or the “Company”) released an update on its Santa Elena mine. MarMar Holdings Inc., the mine operator at the Santa Elena, is currently loading ore on the heap leach pad. As previously stated, the equipment currently on site is insufficient to meet the scale of the project. The time and associated costs of using this equipment is prohibitive in the long run. MarMar is moving a larger crusher to the site that once installed will speed the loading process. Installation of this larger crusher will allow the company to optimize and maximize its daily output of ore and lead to much faster completion of the first lift. The cyanide leaching system will be placed on this first lift when done.
Setup and install of the recently delivered Merrill Crowe recovery plant is now finished. The on-site crew is currently assembling the inflow and outflow pipes for this system which should be completed in short order. The retention ponds are lined and ready for cyanide solution which will be one of the last steps prior to the production of gold commencing.
“The Santa Elena property will be our first producing mine. Our operating partner has multiple crews that will enable simultaneous work at both the Santa Elena and our newly acquired property (San Felix). Production at the Santa Elena is nearing and I ask for the shareholders to remain patient with the process. These steps will provide the base for what will become a large operating mine for years to come,” added Mexus CEO Paul Thompson.
