Mexus Gold US: Santa Elena Mine Update

CARSON CITY, Nev., May 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that work on the Santa Elena mine is progressing as planned. On My 24th, representatives from MarMar holdings and Mexus (JV members) held a meeting and adopted a mining plan with numerous items being discussed and agreed upon. Out of this meeting came the decision to obtain a blasting permit in the name of the JV as opposed to using a blasting contractor. The parties can control costs and manage the process more efficiently than using an outside vendor. It will take 4 to 6 weeks to obtain this blasting permit allowing time for our partner to bring in additional equipment. In the end, this property will be brought into full production faster and much larger than first anticipated.

Geologists from both companies are working at identifying and mapping additional areas of interest on the property. They’ve begun taking samples for testing shown in the attached report. Added CEO Paul Thompson, “The work being done will, I believe, help confirm Mexus’ belief that this property will produce 1,000,000 plus ounces gold equivalent. I’m extremely pleased with our JV partner (MarMar) as they have and continue to follow through with their plans for the Santa Elena. I believe that their knowledge and expertise will help make this property a major mining operation and produce outstanding returns for our shareholders.”
