CARSON CITY, Nev., Oct. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG), Mexus Mining Updates
Mexus Enterprise heap leaching continues to produce gold. Our RC drilling program on the newly acquired San Felix is going as planned with 5 holes completed with near surface intercepts from 78' to 126' thick mineralized zones found, the drilling will continue. The San Felix mine is known to have been mined underground by the Spaniards some 350 years ago to a depth of 300'. Some of the old workings are open today. Up until recent times, mining anything under two ounces per ton was not considered economically feasible. Mexus will use contract miners that already have the necessary equipment needed to mine 6000 tons a day. Recent assay show 0.300 to 11.430 grams per ton gold and 18.16 grams per ton silver with an average of 2 grams per ton gold. Although our drilling shows great potential, Mexus is considering all options at this time.
