CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

FinancialNewsMedia.com issues news updates for today's market movers with
current positive trends in the mining sector. Active Mining Watch issued for:
Santa Fe Gold Corporation (OTCBQ: SFEG), USEC Inc. (NYSE: USU), Uranium

Santa Fe Gold Corporation (OTCBQ: SFEG) Headline: Santa FeGold Reports 14%
Increase inSummitGold-Silver Reserves. Santa Fe Gold Corporation today
announced it has delineated approximately 100,000 tons of additional ore
grading 0.14 ounces per ton gold and 6.2 ounces per ton silver at its Summit
gold-silver mine in southwestern New Mexico. The new ore represents an
increase of approximately 14% to ore reserves. The additional ore has been
developed on three levels in the upper part of the mine along the
northwesterly strike extension of the deposit. Current reserves support a mine
life of five years, and additional resources offer potential for an expanded
life of seven years or more. TheSummitmine began commercial production in
2012 and generated revenues of $13.3 million for the nine months ended March
31, 2013. Pierce Carson, President and CEO, commented, "Importantly, this
newly discovered ore source is readily available for mining and will provide
flexibility to the mine plan as we begin to extract ore from the higher grade
main ore zone during the second half of calendar 2013."  To read the entire
press release, please go to http://finance.yahoo.com/q/h?s=SFEG+Headlines

In addition to the Summit mine, Santa Fe also controls two other
development-stage projects, the Mogollon gold-silver project and the Ortiz
gold project, both in New Mexico. The Mogollon project contains partially
drilled gold-silver deposits that hold promise for new mines, and fits the
Company's strategic objective of developing additional ore sources to
supplement ore from Summit currently processed through its flotation mill in
Lordsburg

FNM Sector Commentary: Gold prices can vary on a daily basis and tend to be
influenced by industrial, consumer and jewelry demand, demand for gold as an
investment, sales and purchase of gold, speculative trading; and plenty of
other significant factors. Over the past few years, the price of gold has
shown a high inverse correlation with the U.S. dollar. In the wake of dollar
weakness, investors at times will look to gold as a safe haven. Many analyst
believe demand for gold should continue to rise, thanks to the rising middle
class in India, China, Latin America and other emerging markets. The Euro-zone
debt crisis will also be an important driver for gold demand. In the first
quarter of 2013, gold prices ranged from $1,574 per ounce to $1693.75 per
ounce, with average gold price at $1,631.8 per ounce, down 3% year over year.
However, according to the World Gold Council, the bull market for gold
appears to be intact even if there's a lot of uncertainty at the moment for
investors. Gold is expected to return to pre-April levels as the long-term
drivers of demand are firmly in place.
