("Plateau Uranium" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PLU)(FRANKFURT:QG1) is pleased to announce the acceptance and approval by affected Andean communities and the Peruvian Environmental Authority for its Environmental Baseline Study lodged in September. The Environmental Baseline study represents the initial step towards production permitting and a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study. Ted O'Connor, CEO of Plateau Uranium commented: "Acceptance of the environmental baseline study by the affected Andean communities near the Macusani uranium and lithium project is a significant milestone for Plateau Uranium and we continue to receive strong social acceptance for developing the project. Acceptance and approvals for the design, scope and methodology of the baseline study received from environmental authorities is a further indication of Peruvian government support for the project and is the first step towards permitting future uranium and lithium production. "The Department of Puno, and the Macusani region, wants and needs industrial and social development, and the Macusani project will play a very important role in the region's future development as we move towards establishing Peru's first uranium and lithium operation. We thank the local communities for their continued support of our project and the excellent relationships that exist with the Company and our strong local technical and operational team."

These communities own farming land and pastures in the area of influence of the Company's Macusani uranium and lithium project, located on the Macusani Plateau, Department of Puno, in southeastern Peru. The acceptance of the baseline study plan by all the Andean communities located in the vicinity of the Macusani uranium and lithium project is of great importance for the future development of the project. The environmental baseline as proposed and implemented by ACOMISA (Asesores y Consultores Mineros SA), the environmental and engineering consulting group engaged by the Company to commence the enhanced environmental baseline study work and EIA studies has been lodged with SENACE (Servicio Nacional de Certificacion Ambiental), the National Service for Environmental Certification. SENACE is part of the Ministry of the Environment, and is the highest government environmental authority in Peru responsible for EIA study approvals for mining and industrial projects. SENACE has accepted and approved the design, scope and methodology of the environmental baseline study and has acknowledged the communities' acceptance for this work. Following the acceptance approvals, the Company has mobilized ACOMISA to initiate the baseline study monitoring and sample collection in the area of interest and to proceed with the other technical, biological, hydrological, social, cultural and archeological studies in the project area that will allow the Company to proceed with the future EIA study necessary for future production permitting.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2016) - Argonaut Gold Inc. (TSX:AR) (the "Company", "Argonaut Gold" or "Argonaut") announces that, in response to the recent favourable federal court of appeal ruling (see press release dated July 28, 2016), the Mexican Environmental Authority ("SEMARNAT") has denied the Environmental Impact Assessment (Manifiesto de Impacto Ambiental or "MIA") for its San Antonio project in Baja California Sur, Mexico. SEMARNAT cited the reasons for not approving the MIA as requiring additional information regarding potential identification, description and impacts to the environment; additional information on the construction, operation and closure plans for the project; and additional information regarding the impact on the local aquifer. The Company believes that this information is readily available and it has the ability to respond swiftly. The Company is evaluating alternatives including legal options, the possible re-submittal of a revised MIA and continuing dialogue. Pete Dougherty, President & CEO stated: "We are disappointed with SEMARNAT's decision. We will review the factors that led to this decision and determine a path to move this project forward. San Antonio is a project that can have significant benefits to the local and regional economy and also provide important positive impacts to the environment. Our plan calls for a modern approach to mining including cleaning up historical overburden stockpiles and tailings and working to improve the local aquifer. We continue to believe that San Antonio remains one of the best undeveloped projects in the sector and we will continue to seek ways to unlock the benefits and value of this project for the local communities and for our shareholders." Argonaut Gold is a Canadian gold company engaged in exploration, mine development and production activities. Its primary assets are the production stage El Castillo mine and the construction stage San Agustin project in Durango, Mexico and the production stage La Colorada mine in Sonora, Mexico. Advanced exploration stage projects include the San Antonio project in Baja California Sur, Mexico, and the Magino project in Ontario, Canada. The Company also has several exploration stage projects, all of which are located in North America. This press release contains certain "forward-looking statements" and "forward-looking information" under applicable Canadian securities laws concerning the business, operations and financial performance and condition of Argonaut Gold Inc. ("Argonaut" or "Argonaut Gold"). Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to estimation of mineral resources at mineral projects of Argonaut; the realization of mineral reserve and resource estimates; the receipt of necessary permits; the timing and amount of estimated future production; economics of production; estimated production and mine life of the various mineral projects of Argonaut; the future price of gold and silver; synergies and financial impact of completed acquisitions; the benefits of the development potential of the properties of Argonaut; success of exploration activities and currency exchange rate fluctuations. Except for statements of historical fact relating to Argonaut, certain information contained herein constitutes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as "plan," "expect," "project," "intend," "believe," "anticipate", "estimate" and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, and are based on a number of assumptions and subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Many of these assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Argonaut and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct. Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statements include variations in metal grades, permitting delays, changes in market conditions, variations in recovery rates, risks relating to international operations, fluctuating metal prices and currency exchange rates, changes in project parameters, the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated. These factors are discussed in greater detail in Argonaut's most recent Annual Information Form and in the most recent Management Discussion and Analysis filed on SEDAR, which also provide additional general assumptions in connection with these statements. Argonaut cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not exhaustive. Investors and others who base themselves on forward-looking statements should carefully consider the above factors as well as the uncertainties they represent and the risk they entail. Argonaut believes that the expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this press release should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of this press release. Argonaut undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management's estimates or opinions should change except as required by applicable securities laws. Although Argonaut has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended. Statements concerning mineral reserve and resource estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking statements to the extent they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered if the property is developed.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MX Gold Corp. (TSX-V:MXL) (FSE:ODV) (OTCQX:MXLGF) (the “Company” or “MX Gold”) announces that, further to its news release dated October 25, 2016 regarding the entry into a binding agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire a 50% interest in the Magistral, Del Oro tailings project (the “Project”), the Company paid the second installment of US$750,000 to the owner of the Project as required by the Agreement.  Pursuant to an amendment agreement dated November 22, 2016, the parties have also expressed their intention to negotiate in good faith and enter into a definitive agreement in the near future. The Company’s remaining payments consist of a US$750,000 payment on or prior to December 20, 2016 and a final payment of US$750,000 on or prior to January 19, 2017, following which the Company will earn a 50% participating ownership interest and 45% net profit participating interest in the Project. The project includes a fully permitted, 500 tonne-per-day dynamic cyanide countercurrent system plant constructed in 2013 at a cost of approximately $4.5 million, which appears to be in excellent condition. The plant is unencumbered and it is estimated that the plant can be fully operational within four to six months. Additionally, the Magistral project includes the exclusive rights to process the mineralized mill tailings. A historical estimate was completed by Corporation Ambiental de Mexico SA de CV on Jan. 20, 2012, titled "Perforacion y Muestreo en Presa de Jaleas Estimation Volumetrica, Tonelaje y Ley Promedio." The CM report estimated a probable reserve of 1.25 million tonnes averaging 2.06 grams per tonne gold. The assumptions for this estimate were based on 58 auger samples, 2.45 metres to three metres in length from 24 drill holes. There has been no additional work on the tailings project since Jan. 20, 2012, to upgrade or verify the historical estimate. The CM report does not comply with National Instrument 43-101 and MX Gold believes that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve and is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve. The company has initiated a data verification program with additional geochemical studies by trenching of the tailings project. Initial results appear to be confirming historical grade estimates. The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Lorne Warner, P.Geo, and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. MX Gold Corp. is a junior mining company focused on the exploration, development and mining of advanced projects located in British Columbia and Mexico. The Company’s primary focus in British Columbia is its high-grade Willa gold and copper project located 12 kilometers south of Silverton, B.C. In 2015, MX Gold Corp. completed the accretive acquisition of the Willa project and the Max Molybdenum Mine and Mill Complex. This acquisition removed major costs and shortened timelines typically associated with mine project development. The Willa mine is located 135 kilometers south of the Max Mill. MX Gold Corp. can also elect to reopen the Max Molybdenum mining operation once world Moly prices improve. Located in Mexico, MX Gold’s new Magistral Del Oro Project is located 392 kilometres south-west of Chihuahua City, in route to Parral 220 km, from there due South on Durango Hi-way for 120 km to Santa Maria Del Oro interception, turn West to Santa Maria Del Oro for 48km, continue East for 3.5 km, then turn South for .5 km to the Magistral Del Oro Project.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MX Gold Corp. (TSX-V:MXL) (FSE:ODV) (OTCQX:MXLGF) (the “Company” or “MX Gold”) is pleased to announce a binding agreement with Gracepoint Mining Corp., a subsidiary of Firma Holdings Corp. (OTC:FRMA) to acquire a 50% interest in the Magistral, Del Oro tailings project, which is located within the “Golden Triangle” in Santa Maria Del Oro, Durango, Mexico. The project includes a fully permitted, 500 tonne/day Dynamic Cyanide counter current system plant constructed in 2013 at a cost of approximately $4.5 million, which appears to be in excellent condition.  The plant is unencumbered and it is estimated that the plant can be fully operational within 4 to 6 months. Additionally, the Magistral project includes the exclusive rights to process the mineralized mill tailings. A historical estimate was completed by Corporation Ambiental de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (“CM”) on January 20, 2012 titled “Perforacion y Muestreo en Presa de Jaleas Estimation Volumetrica, Tonelaje y Ley Promedio”.  The CM report estimated a probable reserve of 1.25 million tonnes averaging 2.06 grams/tonne gold.  The assumptions for this estimate were based on 58 auger samples, 2.45 to 3.0 metres in length from 24 drill holes.  There has been no additional work on the tailings project since January 20, 2012 to upgrade or verify the historical estimate. The CM report does not comply with National Instrument 43-101 and MX Gold Corp. believes that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve and is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve.  The company is planning a data verification program and additional geochemical studies by trenching and or drilling of the tailings project. The agreement calls for an initial cash payment of US$250,000 to Gracepoint and an investment of $2,225,000 over 90 days to meet current obligations and make various modifications and additional enhancements to the plant, and for start-up capital. A comprehensive report, including a metallurgical assessment of the mineralized tailings, was completed by Kappes Cassiday and Associates, an independent mining engineering firm, which confirmed recovery rates of approximately 82%.  During Firma’s pre-purchase due diligence, a volume and grade value report was commissioned and provided, which validated expected grade and tonnage. Additionally, to confirm previous metallurgical results, a report was commissioned and completed by two different Mexican based Metallurgical Engineering companies, with both company’s reports confirming previous grade, process, and recovery results. Mr. Francis Biscan Jr., President of Firma Holdings Corp., stated, “We feel very fortunate to have obtained MX Gold as our partner. In addition to the funding being provided, they bring a team of professionals with significant experience, who intend to be on site and work in concert with our team to ensure an efficient operation. In addition, we will work together to grow the project beyond its initial vision and capacity. Cash flow will enable us to organically advance our other projects. In addition, it can position us to capitalize on some of the great opportunities that have been presented to us over the last several months." Mr. Dan Omeniuk, CEO and Chairman of MX Gold, stated, “It is rare to find both people and projects that are such a perfect fit for our vision at MX Gold.
