CABORCA, Mexico, May 3rd, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company) announced that on April 29th, the company performed a successful blast in the Quartz 2 vein area at its Santa Elena mine located near Caborca, MX. 150 meter strike length was charged in a 2.5 x 2.5 meter grid along four lines. Approximately 10,000 to 15,000 tons of mineralized material was produced. This material will have lime added to it and be hauled to the crushing area to continue with the heap leaching process. The company believes this material will show between 2 to 4 g/t Au average. Numerous samples are being processed as fire assays to confirm the gold and silver content of the new mineral being processed.
While waiting for the necessary blasting permits, the company was busy improving the gold recovery circuit. The heap leach pad was prepared with trenches and mounts to increase oxygen addition and the percolation of leaching solution. Also, an added compressed air system is proving to increase recovery from the heap leach pad.
In addition, Mexus continues to attract potential partners and major investors to fulfill the great mineral potential of the area. One of these companies is planning to visit the Santa Elena project next week and is very interested in Mexus’ mining of low angle quartz and shear zone structures. This company is bringing their mining engineering crew to exchange ideas on how to improve the mining circuit moving forward.
“The much awaited blast which just occurred is a monumental step for Mexus. The company had been producing gold at lower volume and at lower grades which would have made expansion difficult due to low profit margins. Mining this higher grade material is going to allow Mexus the ability to expand the scale and scope of the company at much faster rate.” added CEO Paul Thompson.
