VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2016) - Corex Gold Corp. ("Corex" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGE), is pleased to announce it has received its final permit required for the construction of its heap-leach gold operations at its 100% owned Santana Project located in Sonora, Mexico.
The land use permit allows Corex to begin ground disturbance activities at Santana, which had previously received all necessary mining permits to allow the Company to develop an open-pit, heap leach gold operation and pilot plant.
Corex is pleased to announce that upon receipt of the land use permit it has mobilized heavy equipment and begun the ground preparation and construction of its initial heap-leach pad that will allow for the pilot testing of the Santana deposit.
The Santana Mine is located in a very favorable area of Mexico with excellent infrastructure and a good year-round climate.
"With this permit in place, and a seasoned operator in H Morgan & Co. (Chester Millar), we now have the ability to rapidly advance the Santana project into production," said Craig Schneider, Corex's President and CEO.
Additional construction updates will be provided in the coming weeks.
