Xali Gold $XGC.ca: Permits Applied for Mexico Mines Tailings Project $FMG.ca $MEX.ca $AGI.ca $DSV.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:31 AM on Tuesday, April 13th, 2021

Xali Gold Corp.(TSXV:XGC) (“Xali Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that permit applications have been submitted for the Mexico Mines Tailings Project in El Oro, Mexico. The permits are to allow both the transportation and re-processing of the Mexico Mine tailings at a new plant site located just 5 kilometers from the current location. Sun River Gold “SRG” and their Mexican subsidiary, Remediacion Rio Sol “RRS”, will be conducting all of the work on the tailings as part of an option agreement to acquire the Tailings Project and Xali Gold’s subsidiary, Minera CCM El Oro Jales.

A land package comprising 25 hectares has been purchased for the new plant site and the re-processing plant is expected to be operational within 12 months from receiving permits. Extensive laboratory testing has been performed, which was critical in completing design work for the plant and preparing detailed planning documents.

“We are very excited with the work that SRG has completed to advance the Tailings Project,” says Joanne Freeze, President and CEO of Xali Gold. “There have been some delays due to government closures during the COVID pandemic, but the project is now moving forward and we are very excited to the re-processing getting into operation.”

In addition to laboratory test work, SRG has also completed the following work in preparation for the operation:

  • Design of the plant site
  • Mine plan of tailings indicating extraction levels over the years
  • Developed a contour map demonstrating resulting topography of municipal land once tailings are removed
  • Engaged power contractor to upgrade and extend power lines to site
  • Secured access across private land for roads and power lines
  • Secured access to water from local sources

Xali Gold’s subsidiary, CCM El Oro Jales, has an agreement with the municipality of El Oro which provides the Company the right to recover all available gold and silver from the Mexico Mines tailings deposit and pay to the Municipality of El Oro an 8% Net Profits Interest (“NPI”). Xali Gold will also retain the first US$1.5M from the 8% NPI payable to the Municipality.

SRG has the option to acquire 100% of the Tailings Project by making staged payments totalling US$500,000 (paid), bringing the tailings into commercial production within 36 months of the effective date of the option agreement, and granting to the Company a 5% NPI, Life of Mine royalty as well as the Municipalities 8% NPI on production from the properties. The 36 month term has been extended for 6 months providing that SRG demonstrates sufficient progress during each 3 month period.

Xali Gold $XGC.ca Delineates Drilling Targets at El Dorado $FMG.ca $MEX.ca $AGI.ca $DSV.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:35 AM on Thursday, February 25th, 2021

Xali Gold Corp. (TSXV:XGC) (“Xali Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that new drill targets have been delineated on the El Dorado Gold-Silver Project, located in Nayarit State, Mexico through the development of a new 3D geological model. The new model indicates high grade mineralization occurring in multiple parallel veins such that future mining could focus on several veins at once to potentially allow reduced mining costs. Drilling is planned to test potential lateral extensions to the high grade zone.

Permitting applications are in progress for the drilling which are expected to take 3 to 4 months to receive. Permit applications are also being prepared for the reopening of the historical Hundida Mine and should take 6 to 10 months to receive. Mineralization is planned to be shipped from this area to the nearby SDA plant under acquisition from Magellan Acquisitions.

The El Dorado vein system has a history of small-scale mining from two veins in the Hundido and El Dorado mines (see News Release April 28, 2020) but four veins with parallel high-grade zones have been delineated in the new model. Additionally, several vein targets have been identified along trend for follow-up exploration.

Prospero Silver Corp. (“Prospero”) explored the El Dorado property between 2010 and 2011. Their drilling intersected multiple steeply-dipping silicified mineralized zones extending from near-surface to the 180 metre (“m”) drilled depth and over a strike length of 440m.   Prospero intersected grades ranging from 3 to 40 grams per tonne (“gpt”) gold and 57 to 500 gpt silver over true widths ranging from 0.52 to 11.2 m. (http://www.candentegold.com/i/maps/sedardoc4391012.pdf)

Significant results reported by Prospero on Dec 10, 2010 included:

  • 16.17m grading 4.03 g/t gold, 204 g/t silver, 4.0% lead, and 1.75% zinc; and 2.32m grading 6.04 g/t gold and 140 g/t silver in hole DOR-10-11. (http://www.candentegold.com/i/maps/Prospero-NR–December-10,-2010.pdf)
