Mexus Gold US Exercises Option to Purchase Mining Company in Mexico
Mexus Gold US, (OTCBB: MXSG), a Nevada corporation, is pleased to announce that Mexus Gold US has exercised its option to purchase Mexus Gold Mining SA de CV, Mexico. Mexus Gold US President and CEO, Paul Thompson, stated, “This purchase gives Mexus Gold US the needed mining, milling, and processing equipment to expand its Mexico operations and control of approximately 11,000 acres of mining concessions in the state of Sonora, Mexico located approximately 120 kilometers north of Hermosillo, Mexico, in the Ures mining district. There are four principal concessions. These concessions were all hand mined years past by the father of the family from which the concessions were purchased.”
Mexus Gold US current projects are:
The main feature is a sulfide zone composed primarily of galena with some pyrite and arsenopyrite. Above this zone there is an oxide zone composed of iron and lead oxides. Recent grab samples taken indicate that values over 5,000 grams per ton of silver were encountered. These samples may not reflect the average grade. However, grab sample results indicate silver values over 3,000 grams per ton appear to be not unusual. Gold in the samples ranged from 1 gram per ton to over 5 grams per ton.
This zone is composed of a sedimentary sequence (limestone, quartzite, shale) intruded by dacite and diorite as well as rhyolite. The docite exhibits argillic alterations as well as silicification (quartz veins). The entire area is well oxidized on the surface. This is an area of classic disseminated low grade gold and silver mineralization. Surface grab sample assays show 0.14 grams per ton to as high as 29.490 grams per ton gold. This area is an important area for potentially defining an open pit heap leach project.
El Scorpion Project Area
This area has several shear zones and veins which show copper and gold mineralizations. Recent assays of a 84’ drill hole shows 2,887 grams per ton to 1,139 grams per ton of copper and 3.971 grams per ton to 0.072 grams per ton of gold. Another assay of rock sample from the area shows greater than 10,000 grams per ton copper. This land form distribution appears to be snonymous to the ideal porphyry deposit at Baja La Alumbrera, Argentina.
Los Laureles is a vein type deposit mainly gold with some silver and copper. Recent assays from grab samples show gold values of 67.730 grams per ton gold, 38.4 grams per ton silver, 2,800 grams per ton copper.
Mexus Gold US controls Nevada Pacific Rim’s silver and gold property. The Pacific Rim property is located in Esmeralda County, Nevada. Consisting of approximately 150 acres of patented mining claims with water rights and 22 unpatented lode claims and two mill site claims. Management believes this is a strong exploration target. To date, 51 holes have been drilled on the patented lands. However, Mexus has not verified the authenticity of any of these representations at this time.
Mexus Gold US Cable Salvage. Operations are expected to be concentrated from San Diego, CA to Alaska. It’s reported, but not yet verified by Mexus to date, to contain in excess of 400,000,000 pounds of salvageable copper.
