CABORCA, Mexico, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company) is excited to announce that phase 1 construction of its new heap leach pad is nearing completion. The new area will be ready for the liner by November 1st and have mineralized material placed by November 15th. Mexus expects the new leach pad to be producing gold by December 1st.

The company continues to separate the high grade chloride material from the existing leach pad with approximately 3500 tons having been removed. The ball mill is having difficulty running some of the material as it turns to mud during the process. The solution is to use a screen wash plant which Mexus already has on site. The recovery of the gold from this material is expected to take 45 days.

“I want to remind Mexus shareholders that we are entering into a period where three different gold recovery systems will be operational. In the near term we have the screen wash high-grade chloride material being processed. The company will also have its new heap leach pad in place and will be running high grade quartz material through our ball mill system.” added Mexus CEO Paul Thompson.
