Argonaut Gold Announces Updates on the Magino and San Agustin Projects

Argonaut Gold Inc. provided updates its Magino and San Agustin projects. The company has received results of the metallurgical test work on three rounds of column testing at various crushing methods and sizes on its 100% owned Magino project located in Ontario, Canada completed by Kappes Cassiday and Associates (KCA) of Reno, Nevada. Argonaut has also received the results of a preliminary economic assessment for its 100% owned San Agustin gold project, located in Durango, Mexico completed by KCA; Resource Modeling Inc. (RMI) of Stites, Idaho and Argonaut Gold's management team. KCA conducted three separate series of column leach tests to examine the feasibility of heap leaching Magino lower grade gold mineralization. Bulk samples were tested from stockpiled material remaining from historic underground operations. In addition, a number of composites were prepared from split drill core collected from various locations throughout the resource volume. Column test work conducted at the KCA laboratories provided the following results: December 2014 column leach test work comparing conventionally crushed material versus high pressure grinding roll (HPGR) crushed material at minus 9.5mm size resulted in recoveries ranging from 62% to 66% for the conventionally crushed material and 68% to 71% on the HPGR material. Argonaut plans to commence an 8,000 meter drill campaign in January 2015 to both test the extension of the Webb Lake mineralization easterly on the adjacent property to be acquired from Richmont. Drilling will also include testing select portions of the main resource body to fill-in areas where historical drilling was excluded from the most recent resource that was published in December of 2013. This work together with the updated metallurgical results will form the basis for an updated resource estimate which is planned to be released during the second half of 2015.
