CARSON CITY, Nev., Jan. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) today announced that it has completed the land acquisition and purchase of the San Felix Mine. The final piece was the purchase agreement finalized with the Ejido land owners which the San Felix concessions lay upon. CEO Paul Thompson has worked tirelessly over the last year consolidating this property and tying up all loose ends. Mr. Thompson explained, "Within a short time of forming the Mexus/Trinidad JV we learned there were property right issues on and around the San Felix mine. Those issues are now settled leaving Mexus Enterprise SA de CV in full control of the property and the rights that go along with that control."
Mexus Gold is reducing its monthly overhead at the San Felix mine and concentrating on increasing the gold equivalent reserve value. The company just received the most recent drill results from ING. Guillermo E. Teran-Martinez. Mr. Teran-Martinez drilled 850.95 meters with outstanding results.
Highlights of this report include a 60 foot interval averaging .187 ounces of gold and 3.65 ounces of silver per ton (Hole E 25). In addition, Hole E 78, contained a 20 foot interval averaging 0.176 ounces of gold and 2.383 ounces of silver per ton.
These results add credence to the company's belief that the property has the potential to show a 1 million ounce gold equivalent reserve.
Negotiations between Mexus and potential buyers of the San Felix property are still ongoing. There is currently one offer on the table that would include a cash payment in addition to a per ounce concession paid based on a 43-101 certified drilling program. The company is confident any drilling program would confirm a large reserve on this property.
