CABORCA, Mexico, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company) announced that all the necessary preparation to begin cyanide leaching at the Santa Elena mine is now complete. Mexus head metallurgist, Roberto Baltierrez, completed lab testing of the recently prepared heap leach pad and has formulated a gold/silver recovery plan. The initial material being leached is existing shear zone lower grade material averaging 1.8 g/t gold and 8 g/t silver. This material was mined while the Julio vein was being drilled and prepped for blasting. (Julio vein ore material is averaging 4 g/t gold and 12 g/t silver).
Once started, leaching will be continuous with new ore being added weekly at the higher grades noted. This continued production will give Mexus the necessary cash flow to increase and improve production without incurring additional debt. The projection is for Mexus to be mining 3500 tons per week of the higher-grade Julio Vein ore by September 2019. “With 1 g/t gold recovery we hope to produce 5,800 oz. gold and 35,000 oz. silver. The Julio vein ore is expected to produce a much higher yield of gold and silver which would substantially increase these figures.” added Mexus CEO Paul Thompson.
