CARSON CITY, Nev., Nov. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG)("Mexus" or the "Company") along with its JV partner MarMar recently decided that the best option for gold recovery at the Santa Elena mine will be a Merrill Crowe system. The decision to use this system instead of Electrowinning was made in part because a Merrill Crowe system will allow Mexus the opportunity to scale the recovery plant as production increases. Mexus now plans to ship a 400-600gpm Merrill Crowe plant from its Walnut Grove shop to the Santa Elena mine site. This plant was purchased by Mexus in 2014 and had been readied for use when needed. The recovery plant has been disassembled, loaded, and is ready to be shipped around November 27 th. CEO Paul Thompson toured the mine site Friday, November 18 th. Mr. Thompson and engineers from MarMar were able to determine the optimal size and placement of the pad for the recovery system. Mexus and MarMar continue to explore every opportunity in regards to costs and production. Added CEO Thompson, "I'm thrilled with the decision to use a Merrill Crowe recovery system. This system is best suited for our long term production goals and gives us flexibility in the size of plant we will ultimately need. The installation of this system is really quite simple. It was disassembled with all parts being marked for ease of installation. This system will payoff many times over in the years to come."
