:: Golden Phoenix Minerals Announces First Gold Pour and Overall Progress of Gold Recovery Operations at Mineral Ridge Gold Mine

Golden Phoenix Minerals, Inc., a mineral-property development company, announced today that its Phase 1 operations at its Mineral Ridge gold mine in Esmeralda County, Nevada, are progressing on schedule, including production of its first gold bar.

"We are very excited about the initiation of Phase 1 gold production at the Mineral Ridge Mine. We look forward to the anticipated continuation of production at the mine," said Michael Fitzsimonds, President of Golden Phoenix.

During the past few weeks at the Mineral Ridge Mine, solution chemistry has continued to be stabilized, new drip pipe was added to the pad, new carbon was added to the carbon columns, and final repairs have been made to the gold refinery. Golden Phoenix reports that new cyanide is being added to the process solutions and the solution gold grade is increasing as these solutions drain from the leach pad. These process solutions are distributed on the leach pad through drip pipes. Solutions are also introduced into the auger holes that were drilled for passive injection of solutions into the lower portions of the pad.
