United States Antimony Corporation (“USAC”, OTCBB “uamy.ob”) reported that the flotation mill in Guanajuato, Mexico has been completed and is ready for production. To start milling operations, dump rock was hauled from older workings at the Los Juarez antimony/silver/gold property in Queretaro, Mexico. Six samples were taken on a regular basis from approximately 19 truckloads or 420 metric tons from dump rock from an open pit called “Minas Grande.” The significance of this dump is that it was mined to a depth of 40 meters indicating that the deposit is not just a layered, “Manto”, deposit of 5 meters thickness.

With the start of the new flotation mill in Mexico, USAC will become a more vertically integrated producer of antimony and precious metals."
