Mining PRs and the Ottotrans™, Part 89

We haven’t had one of these for quite a while, but tonight’s batch of Friday post-close NRs offers up an unmissable opportunity: Thanks to Marlin Gold (MLN.v) we get to Ottotrans a 1,126 word news release down to just TWO WORDS:

This is what they wrote:


June 12,
2015
Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. Provides Corporate Update
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – June 12,
2015) –

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE OR
DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE
UNITED STATES

Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MLN) (“Marlin” or the
“Company”) has been integrating its Arizona properties acquired
after the closing of the Commonwealth Silver and Gold Inc. (“Commonwealth”)
acquisition on May 21, 2015. After further review of the geological database,
Management believes that Commonwealth represents a second district-scale land
package in addition to our 118,000 hectare land package in Sinaloa,
Mexico surrounding our operating La Trinidad gold mine. The addition of
Commonwealth allows Marlin to continue building a diversified precious metal
mining company.

On June 3, 2015 Marlin closed a $13 million private placement, with
approximately $11.6 million of this being used for debt repayment, including
$5 million to the Sprott Resource Lending Partnership. This has significantly
improved the Company’s balance sheet and provided the financial flexibility
to bring the San Carlos satellite pit into our mine plan as early as
September 2015 depending on the results of our accelerated development plan. We
expect the total capital expenditures to develop the San Carlos satellite pit
to be around $5 million (US$4 million).

Exploration drilling has begun at La Trinidad, which is the first time an
exploration drill rig has been on site since 2011. This drilling program will
concentrate on infill drilling at our primary Taunus pit, and resource
delineation at our San Carlos
satellite pit.

La Trinidad Optimization is Progressing Well

Sonoran Resources LLC, led by Jesse Munoz, has been advancing the Company’s
Taunus pit optimization and San
Carlos
accelerated development plan since the
beginning of May. Since this time, key components of our operations,
including our adsorption, desorption and recovery (“ADR”) plant,
waste removal within the Taunus pit and recoveries at our leach pad have been
performing better than they have been since declaring commercial production
in November of 2014. Our average recovery rates at the leach pad have been
materially better, with cumulative recovery rates nearly 4% better than they
were at the beginning of May. Changing in leaching procedures, including
better irrigation of slide slopes and rotating the areas under leach in an
optimized fashion have allowed us to recover significant gold from our
inventories. Waste material that was built up during the first four months of
the year has been removed, allowing our pit to gain access to lower levels,
and accelerating the time it will take to get to the high grade HS zone
earlier in Q2 2016. Our ADR plant has been operating at 95% efficiency since
it has been optimized (vs. 90% before) and is flowing nearly 6% more solution
through the plant (8,500 vs. 8,000 cubic meters
per day). The net effect is that gold production has increased over 12% per
day assuming constant solution grades. Since the end of the last quarter we
have shipped and sold approximately 5,100 ounces of
gold.

Management Changes Will Further Advance Marlin’s Assets

As Marlin transitions to a multi-asset and multi-jurisdiction mining company,
it is crucial that the Company develop a flexible and scalable operating team
that is capable of advancing as many assets as we can bring into the
portfolio. Sonoran Resources LLC has demonstrated that they are the ideal
team to be advancing and optimizing Marlin’s mines and projects. They have
proven themselves at La Trinidad, and being headquartered in Arizona will
significantly help the advancement of Commonwealth. To this end, Marlin is
pleased to welcome Jesse Munoz as interim COO of the company replacing John
Brownlie, the former CEO and COO of Marlin. Akiba Leisman will assume the
role of interim CEO in addition to Executive Chairman.
