Gold returning to the pregnant solution pond better than expected at Santa Elena mine

CARSON CITY, Nev., March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that the initial assay results of the cyanide solution returning to the holding pond is better than expected.  On-site engineers have been collecting samples at the outflow pipe twice a day for lab testing.  The numbers equate to an average grade for all assays of 1 gram per ton entering the pond.

“This is exciting news for Mexus and our JV Partner.  The Initial amount of gold returning to the recovery pond is normally lower during the first weeks of cyanide being introduced to a pad.  These returns increase as the cyanide is able to work through the mineralized material.  I would expect our numbers to increase as pad 1 gets fully saturated which should take another week.  Overall, I’m thrilled with the progress being made at the Santa Elena mine.  We have gold in our recovery pond and will be processing gold shortly,” added Mexus CEO Paul Thompson.

In addition, the company announced that a 750KW generator was recently purchased at auction for the San Felix project.  This generator will run the entire processing plant at the mine and is an integral part of getting the San Felix mine into production.  The generator will be shipped to the mine site during the week of March 19th.
