The Northern Miner, a Prestigious and Leading Mining Industry Trade Journal, in its August 8 2019 issue, lists Santa Fe Gold ninth among the top 10 US based mid-tier and junior precious metals companies Brian Adair adds $600k investment in SFEG to $1 Million for 2019ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Santa Fe GoldA(US-OTC: SFEG) began mining operations at its Jim Crow gold-silver mine in the historic Steeple Rock mining district of southwestern New Mexico in May and is currently producing and readying ore for shipment.The company expects production from the Jim Crow mine will generate funds to finance development of its other mines in the district including the nearby Three Brothers mine,A the adjacent Imperial mine, as well as the Bilalli mine, 6.4 km north of Jim Crow. Santa Fe Gold plans to have all four mines in production as rapidly as progress will allow and can be achieved.In addition to its four past-producing mines in Steeple Rock, Santa Fe Gold has acquired five other historic silver mines: the Alhambra, Black Hawk, Silver King, Good Hope and Bullarda??s Peak mines. These are covered by 13 patented claims and 83 unpatented claims in the Black Hawk district in Grant County, 24 km southwest of Silver City, in New Mexico. Santa Fe is reviewing development options for the assets.Chairman Brian Adair CommentsProgress at ourAJim Crow mine continues to impress. Having deftly acquired the Jim Crow and 10 other mines in the Steeple Rock district at the start of 2019, the company has wasted no time in bringing the first of these mines, the Jim Crow mine into condition for sustained production in just five months followingAacquisition.Over the past three years, the company's strategy has been to take advantage of the lower prices of gold and silver andAacquire as many high grade quality mines and deposits as economically viable.The company has thus far managed to secureAa portfolioAof 148 mining claims covering some 42 potential mines and mine sites and is now intent onAdeveloping eachAmineAat an attainableApaceAas it brings multiple mines into production one after another.AFortuitously, recent strong upsurgesAin preciousAmetals prices and robustAmarkets continueAtoAincreasingly benefitAour business and valueAmodel.Also, during this past three year era of accumulation and more recently production: At strategic intervals of achievement, I have periodically increased my ownApersonal investmentAin Santa Fe Gold with increasing confidence at each milestone and improvement in the company's prospects.Earlier this year, I addedA$400,000 more to the companyAat 8 cents per share for fiveAMillion shares and last weekAas the company began to raise significant amounts of ore to the surface, I elected to further increase my investmentAby and additional $600,000Aat 8 cents,Aboth times by private placement.AThis brings my total investment in Santa Fe GoldAfor the first eight months of 2019Ato $1 Million and my overall investment in the companyAto more than $2.1 Million.I am doing this with high confidence in Santa Fe Golda??s increasingly bright future and its ability to bring multiple additional mines into production over a relatively short period of time.As Santa Fe Gold continues to grow and production increases further and new mines are broughtAon line and as other important objectives andAmilestones are reached,AI may furtherAincrease my totalAinvestmentAin the company,Aboth by private placementAand possibly also by buying in the openAmarket.AOnce again, I would like to especially thank our mining and exploration team for their outstanding efforts in bringingASanta Fe Gold intoAproduction in minimal timeAand for their expertise and ongoing development work inAadvancing the preparation of the additional ten minesASteeple Rock and Billali Gold and Silver Mines that are scheduled for new production.AI would also like to re-emphasize the potential ongoing developmental work and analysisAof the Five Silver Mine Black Hawk Alhambra Complex. Santa FeAexpects to be announcing results ofAoperations soon with analysisAfrom multiple mines within the district.AIt should need no elaboration that bringing a mid size gold and silver mine into productionAis a massive undertaking, requiring a tremendous amount of mine development and preparation, underground tunneling and additional infrastructure necessary for voluminous pre-production that is required to achieve and maintain steady, stable and sustainable output. New ore has to beAcontinuouslyAmined at anAincreasing rateAto ensureAfuture growth in output can be maintained atAa scalable paceAuntil maximum production is achieved andAcan be sustainable for the future.AGivenAour considerable achievementsAto date, our over-riding goal continues to beAto maximize output at a steadily increasingAandAsustainable pace and thereafter add additional capacity from new mines that will be under continuousAdevelopment.Technical Advisor Dan Gorski AddsSanta Fe has capitalized on the prolonged period of depressed precious metal prices to establish a very strong position in the historic Steeple Rock gold district. We believe this contrarian approach is going to yield impressive returns as the precious metal markets recover.About Santa Fe GoldWe are a mining company engaged in the business of acquisitions and intended development of and production from mining and mineral properties.This release may contain certain a??forward-lookinga?? statements, which represent the Companya??s expectations or beliefs, including but not limited to, statements concerning the companya??s planned operations, financial condition, ability to obtain capital, and growth and acquisition strategies.Additionally, in order to implement and expand the business strategy of the Company as reflected in this press release, the Company may be required to obtain additional capital to continue operations.A There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in obtaining required capital to execute and further our business plan and strategy outside of our available funding sources.
