CARSON CITY, Nev., April 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) ("Mexus" or the "Company") announced an update on its placer operation and ongoing negotiations for underground mining at the Julio. On April 8th, a $10,000 payment was received from its Mexican corporation (Mexus Gold Mining SA de CV). The placer is not yet running at full capacity but is starting to pay the bills. Vice President Julio Baltazar added, "We are working hard to get the mine to full production and each day we are moving closer to accomplishing that goal."
Mexus has been negotiating with the Mexican government concerning the recovery of the IVA Tax which is currently owed the company. A resolution of this matter appears to be forthcoming.
Mexus continues to negotiate with a private company to begin underground mining at the high grade Julio mine. Upfront monies and funds to begin the mining will enable the company to mine 25 tons per day. The agreement would include plans to upgrade to 300 tons per day within 24 months. The company believes, using its current drilling studies along with historical data of the Julio, that 1 ounce of gold per ton is obtainable. Past history shows that the Julio produced 2 ounces per ton gold average. "Mexus has seen assays as high as 6 ounces per ton. In addition, there is visible gold and we would expect the assays in those areas to be even higher," said CEO Paul Thompson.
