Hengxing Gold Holding Company Limited Announces 2015 Q2 Operational Updates for Gold Mountain Mine

XIAMEN, July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hengxing Gold Holding Company Limited ("Hengxing Gold" or the "Company") (HKEx: 2303) would like to announce its 2015 second quarter operational updates for its wholly owned Gold Mountain Mine. Gold Mountain Mine is the largest gold mine in China's Xinjiang region in terms of JORC gold resources, annual ore processing capacity and gold production volume at full production level.

2015 Q2 Production Updates

Based on the preliminary results for the six months ended 30 June 2015, Hengxing Gold expects to record a profit turnaround for the first half of 2015 due to substantial growth in gold production and sales as compared to the corresponding period in 2014. The mining operation crushed and processed 1,778,675 tonnes of ore and produced 15,514 ounces (equivalent to 482.52 kg) of gold dore in the first half of 2015, representing a significant increase by approximately 70% and 121% respectively as compared to 1,046,260 tonnes ore processed and 7,012 ounces (equivalent to 218.1 kg) gold dore produced for the same period last year.

In addition to current mining operations at the Yelmand prospect and Mayituobi prospect within Gold Mountain Mine, the Company plans to develop a third mining operation at Kuangou prospect, which is designed as an open pit to accommodate 1.5 million tonnes per annum ore processing capacity. The development of the Kuangou prospect is high on the agenda considering that its ore has a relatively higher average gold grade and easier to process compared with ore mined from other prospects within the Gold Mountain Mine.

2015 Exploration Updates

The Company has made progress in the joint exploration in Bohegou area with Western Region Gold Ili Company Limited. The Joint exploration discovered several continuous gold-in-soil anomalies in the area. The preliminary exploration design of geological mapping, trenches and drillholes has been completed in June 2015.  The Drilling will start in August this year after tendering of geological works.
