VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MX Gold Corp. (TSX-V:MXL) (Frankfurt:ODV) (OTCQX:MXLGF) (the “Company” or “MX Gold”) is pleased to announce an update on permitting at the Willa Deposit near Silverton, B.C.

Short Term Water Discharge Approved, Ministry of Environment August 31, 2016

Notice of Work applications have now been submitted to the Ministry of Energy and Mines for the start of the test work.

Bert McPherson, President and Chief Operating Officer of MX Gold Corp. comments, “As we take steps towards our work permits, we are assembling additional site management senior staff to accelerate our activities. The team will be in place in two weeks. This is a very busy but exciting time for MX Gold as we are now advancing at a rapid pace.”
