CARSON CITY, Nev., Nov. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) is a company engaged in the evaluation, acquisition, exploration, development and production of mining properties and conducts salvage operations for the recovery of precious metals.
Mexus Enterprises S.A. de C.V., a Mexican Corporation wholly owned by Mexus Gold US (MXSG), gives Mexus Gold US a 60% ownership in the Mexus Trinidad Joint Venture.
Trench sampling of the Joint Venture number 3 and 6 leach pads show a high of 10 grams per ton gold and 190 grams per ton silver. The Joint Venture, after reviewing the recommendations of its staff engineers, geologists, and metallurgists, intends to start the smallest heap leach number 3 pad leaching as soon as December 16, 2012 and to be followed by the number 6 pad. These pads contain the majority of the estimated 2.6 million tons of ore. With the 2.6 million tons of ore already in place on the pads, the Joint Venture will not have to start spending money on the mining/crushing part of the operation for approximately 75 days.
The Joint Venture owns the rights to a 100 year old tails dump, approximately 1 million tons, located off site and our Joint Venture partner has been running a pilot plant to test the values and processing procedure to recover values. With that being completed, the results are at a projected production of 120 tons per day. It is estimated to produce $2,100,000.00 per month in gross revenue at an estimated production cost $525,000.00, leaving a net of $1,575,000 per month. The necessary new equipment has already been purchased by the Joint Venture and is being installed with an estimated completion date of 11/24/2012. President Paul Thompson states that, "With the reorganization of the Trinidad Pacific management by the new Joint Venture, Mexus will receive skilled personnel to manage and operate the Joint Venture along with Mexus' existing and future expanding operations."
Julio Placer Operation is continuing to produce gold. Mexus continues its drilling program on the property and is excited with the results of drilling towards its future open pit/heap leach project on the Julio.
