ABOT Mining Announces the Production of the First Gold Dore Bar from Concentrates at its Silver Tailings Project and Provides Project Update

Woodland Hills, CA, March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ABOT Mining (Pink Sheets: ABOT.pk) is pleased to announce that the production of approximately 5.65 kg of concentrates and its first doré bar from its Silver Tailings Project.

Approximately 225 tons of tailings were loaded for processing in this first trial run. Some of the equipment were custom built and took extra time for completion and commissioning, which caused the unexpected delay in our first production trial run. The doré bar(s) have been sent for refining in order to validate pyrometallurgical protocols and to achieve required refinery specifications for future production.

This modest production represents a key milestone for the Company as the first production line has started with the low-grade tailings material. Furthermore, the Company is in final negotiations to acquire interest in a gold property in the region of El Rosario, Mexico. The Company expects to improve its production recovery by replacing its low grade tailings with higher grade ore from the El Rosario property. The Company expects to provide details of this acquisition and results from future production runs in the near future.
