The agreement includes a full release of the Company and its affiliates from all potential claims and liabilities related to the Project, its former joint venture partners and allows the Company to retain possession of all owned machinery located at the San Felix Project.
Divesture of the San Felix mine will benefit the shareholders by providing the Company a significant opportunity to move forward with its mining plan at the Santa Elena/Julio property. CEO Paul Thompson stated, "Our shareholders will benefit greatly because dollar for dollar our investment at Santa Elena/Julio has the significant potential to realize a far superior long term return on investment. The sale of the San Felix presented itself and as a company, I felt it was best to sell our interest and focus our energies at the Santa Elena/Julio property which has been a goal of ours for some time now. In the end, we will make money on this deal and the experience we gained regarding mining operations in Mexico was invaluable."
Mexus Gold US also announced that it is in the process of entering into a contract with an engineering, mine development, and mining firm to construct facilities and provide expertise to place the Santa Elena/Julio property into full production. The Company is also in the final stages of relocating its equipment from the San Felix Project to the Santa Elena/Julio property and should be finalized very soon. Paul Thompson added, "We expect to announce the details of this agreement within a week or two. I'm excited about this firm who will consult and partner with us throughout the process to achieve full production with uninterrupted operations. Now is the time for the Company to establish a more professional mining team by adding the appropriate expertise to the Board of Directors, as well as, additional key personnel to meet the expanding needs of Mexus Gold at the Julio/Santa Elena project. Going forward, our shareholders can expect to see frequent press releases and updates on our march to full production at the 100% owned Santa Elena/Julio property."
