Purchase of SDA Mill Expected to Close in October



RENO, Nev., Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Magellan Gold Corporation (OTCQB:  MAGE) ("Magellan" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that its purchase of the SDA Mill, Nayarit State, Mexico, from Rose Petroleum plc (AIM:  ROSE) is on tract to close by the end of October 2017. The SDA Mill is a fully permitted and operational mineral processing plant and includes all associated assets, licenses and agreements. Major milestones towards closing were achieved on September 11, 2017, when Magellan and Rose announced the execution of a definitive purchase agreement, and on September 18, 2017, when Rose obtained its shareholder approval required for the sale. The final major item, restructuring of Mexican ownership of the SDA Mill, is in process and is expected to be concluded in October 2017.

"Acquisition of the SDA Mill will transform Magellan into a production company and will be an exciting development for our shareholders," stated CEO Pierce Carson. "Our strategy following the acquisition will be to resume processing operations, build production and increase cash flow."

Total consideration for the SDA Mill purchase is US$1.5 million, consisting of $1.0 million in cash and $500,000 in Magellan stock, of which $100,000 in cash already has been paid. As announced August 16, 2017, Magellan has arranged $900,000 in irrevocable bridge loans in support of its option to purchase the mill. The bridge loans are sufficient to complete the cash component of the purchase price.

Although the parties anticipate closing to occur in October 2017, there can be no assurance that the purchase of the mill will be concluded.

The SDA Mill is a fully operational flotation plant that also includes a precious metals leach circuit and associated assets, licenses and agreements. The mill has the capacity to process ore at a rate of up to 200 tons per day. The mill has a ten-year operating history. Historically its operation has been based on sales of flotation concentrates to smelters, and payment for precious metals content.  Milling activity currently is on hold pending the completion of the purchase transaction.
