VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MX Gold Corp. (TSX-V:MXL) (FSE:ODV) (OTCQX:MXLGF) (the " Company" or " MX Gold"), in its joint venture partnership with GracePoint Mining Corp (OTC PINK:FRMA), is pleased to report on the commitment and exceptional work that is being done by Componentes Mineros SA DE CV.

Francis R Biscan, GracePoint Mining Corp Chairman & CEO states: "We believed that one of the most critical aspects of the Magistral project was the selection of the right contractor for the re-building and expansion of the processing plant. We have been doing business in Mexico for over 11 years, and I can confidently say that Componentes Mineros SA DE CV is one of the best companies that we have worked with, not only for the competent work they are doing, but also for their personal and professional commitment to the project."

Mr. Dan Omeniuk, CEO and Chairman of MX Gold adds, "When we entered the Joint Venture with GracePoint I made the comment, It is rare to find both people and projects that are such a perfect fit for our vision at MX Gold. Gracepoint Mining's focus on building a portfolio of projects that are near term producers with upside potential is very attractive to us."

In early 2016 our Project Team took the decision to choose a "Turnkey" Design/Build partner and a thorough process of selection chose Componentes Mineros SA DE.  Componentes Team has worked with our JV Operating Team in the same spirit of cooperative success.  Professionalism is complete.

Luis Felipe Garcia, General Manager of Componentes Mineros SA DE CV states: "Of all that we do in serving the mining industry, we are truly grateful when we are able to work on projects that are state of the art. Magistral is one of those projects, and brings a unique quality to the region. The configuration of the facility will not only be ideal for the tailings that the project controls, but it will also be well suited to serve the surrounding area from a tolling perspective.
