FIGURE 1: YTD OPERATIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

Magna Gold plans to release its full second quarter 2021 financial and operational results on or around August 30, 2021. Gold grades mined, gold grades processed, and gold recoveries will be reported with the quarterly results.

Arturo Bonillas, President & CEO of Magna Gold, stated:

“The end of Q2 marked a major milestone for the Magna Gold team. We achieved commercial production on schedule and had our highest production total in the month of June. We are seeing production ramp up every day and look to end the year producing ~7,500 oz Au per month. Figure 1 demonstrates just how far we have come as our strip ratio has been brought down to near life of mine averages and our production continues to steeply trend upwards.”

“Magna Gold is in a phase of rapid expansion and advancement of our assets. Having said that our commitment to health and safety remains a priority, this evidenced by our unblemished ~3.5M man hours without a lost time incident. We look to continue our dedication to best practices as we are well on our way to become a mid tier producer.”
