:: Golden Phoenix Minerals Reports Excellent Gold Gravity Recovery Tests From Its Mineral Ridge Gold Mine

Golden Phoenix Minerals, Inc., a mineral-property development company, announced that it has received excellent gravity gold test results from the Knelson Group, Inc. of Langley, British Columbia. The Knelson Group specializes in gravity recovery of fine to coarse gold ores as an alternative to cyanide leaching or as a supplement to a cyanide mill circuit.

Test results confirmed that 50 to 65 percent of the gold at its Mineral Ridge mine in Esmeralda County, Nevada, could be recovered with just gravity concentration with proper grinding of the ore. The test also showed that, as a supplement to the cyanide mill circuit proposed for Phase 2 of Golden Phoenix' plan, the Company can recover 30 to 45 percent of the gold immediately from the mill feed before cyanide is added to complete the gold recovery process. It is anticipated that final gold recovery rates will be between 90 and 95 percent.
