Mexus adds additional property to its portfolio
CARSON CITY, Nev., Jan. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that after careful deliberation the Company has determined to acquire the concessions comprising the San Felix Project.  Mexus has entered into land surface use agreements and concession purchase agreements for various land parcels which expired under the prior owner’s failure to pay. The agreements require a cash payment with term payments to the respective owners.  The Company also announces the execution of an agreement with MarMar Holdings Inc. whereby each company owns a 50% share of the San Felix Project and designates MarMar Holdings Inc. as the operator of the daily production activities. Other provisions of the agreement are similar to our agreement with MarMar Holdings Inc. covering the Santa Elena Project.  Included in this agreement is the addition of 6 concessions by MarMar Holdings Inc. which brings the total area of the San Felix Project to approximately 26,570 acres. Situated on the property is an approximate 3 million ton leach pad in place and a 1600 GPM Merrill Crow gold recovery system.  Having the leach pad and recovery system in place will greatly reduce the time and cost to bring this mine into production.  Mr. Marco Martinez, CEO of MarMar Holdings Inc., owns heavy mining equipment which is stored 45km north of the San Felix project.  This machinery can be mobilized in a short period of time which reduces the significant expense associated with equipment hauling. Initially, MarMar Holdings Inc. has a goal to produce 10,000 tons a day with output increasing over time. The Company possesses geological reports, mapping, drill results and sampling data which indicate a potential 1,000,000oz gold equivalent.

Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate Ltd (CRP: NZX): Mineral Resource Development Company Holds a Mining Permit off the Coast of New Zealand with Significant Seabed Deposits of Rock Phosphate and other Potentially Valuable Minerals
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Chatham Rock Phosphate, Ltd (CRP: NZX) is a mineral resource development company that holds a mining permit over an area off the coast of New Zealand with significant seabed deposits of rock phosphate and other potentially valuable minerals. Very significantly, the Namibian government has just opened up phosphate mining off-shore in Namibia, where Chatham has five more prospecting license applications. We learned from Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate, that the offshore phosphate deposits are sitting on the surface of the sea floor and you can dredge the surface material off and then bring it to the shore. The material itself will be used for fertilizer. In New Zealand, where the economy is based on agriculture, the existence of a local source of phosphate is particularly important. The near-term plans, for the New Zealand deposit, include being fully permitted by the end of 2017 and going into production in 2020, mining 1.5 billion tons a year of rock phosphate and selling it for roughly $250 million dollars a year, making roughly $100 million dollars’ profit in round numbers. The Namibian project is at an earlier stage and will provide a broader base for the company in the 2020s.

With the Arrow Deposit's maiden Inferred mineral resource estimate of 201.9 M lbs. U3O8 contained in 3.48 M tonnes grading 2.63% U3O8, it is showing a likely production profile which could make it the largest producing mine on a per-pound basis globally.

Interview with James Buskard, President of Nevada Exploration (TSX-V: NGE): Making New Gold Discoveries in Nevada Using Groundwater Chemistry
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Nevada Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: NGE; OTCQX: NVDEF) is a Vancouver-based gold explorer, focused on making new gold discoveries in Nevada, through the application of the new and unique exploration technology called Groundwater Chemistry. James Buskard, President of Nevada Exploration, stated that approximately three hundred million ounces of gold have been produced from Nevada to date, yet the mining was only done near the areas with exposed bedrock which is only about half of the state. The geologists active in the state agree that there should be another three hundred million ounces waiting to be discovered underneath the valleys. The Nevada Exploration team developed a hydrogeochemistry approach to, cost effectively, explore the covered areas. According to Mr. Buskard, everywhere they have taken a groundwater chemistry target forward through early-stage drilling, they've found the sorts of targets, the sizes that you would associate with a large gold deposit. So they are very encouraged by their results to date. It seems very, very exciting!
