We are looking forward to the projected cash flow from Magistral, as it will serve as an integral part of our approach to building further value for MX Gold shareholders with a non-dilutive strategy."

The project includes a fully permitted 500 TPD Dynamic Cyanide counter current system plant. Construction of the plant was completed in 2013, for approximately $4.5 million.
