Golden Queen Mining Company Ltd. provides update on the Soledad Mountain Project

VANCOUVER, Nov. 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX:GQM; OTCQX:GQMNF) provides an update on its Soledad Mountain Project (the "Project").  All amounts are in U.S. dollars and are shown on a 100% basis.

The Company is pleased to report that Project construction is proceeding on schedule. 

The Company's 50%-owned subsidiary, Golden Queen Mining Company, LLC ("GQ California") has recently negotiated a number of contracts with experienced contractors for four remaining turn-key projects.  These include the crushing-screening plant, the stacking and conveying system, the Merrill-Crowe plant and the Phase 1/Stage 1 heap leach pad.  The combined contracts represent approximately $43 million of new construction commitments by GQ California.  Work on these projects is scheduled to commence in early January.  GQ California expects to proceed with the commissioning of its process facilities in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Detailed engineering has been completed and cost estimates are being obtained for the remaining water supply infrastructure for the Project. GQ California's electrical engineers are doing the detailed design for the site-wide power distribution for the Project and the interconnection with Southern California Edison, the regional utility.  Indications are that power will be available towards the end of the second quarter of 2015.

GQ California has selected Komatsu equipment for the mining fleet required for the development of the Project.  The Komatsu equipment will be purchased through Road Machinery, LLC, the local authorized Komatsu distributor, which will also provide support services for the equipment. Komatsu Financial will provide GQ California with a $17 million line of credit to finance the equipment. The first piece of earth-moving equipment, a water truck with a capacity of 8,000 gallons, was recently delivered to site.  Road Machinery, LLC is developing a facility in Mojave to be able to provide maintenance support for the Project. This is a significant investment for Road Machinery, LLC and a most welcome step forward for Mojave.

GQ California has spent approximately $21 million on Project development and construction to date. 

To assist with mine planning, the Company had engaged Mine Development Associates of Reno, Nevada ("MDA") to review the Project's geological resource model and related technical information.  The review by MDA indicates that vein widths are narrower than previously modeled but that vein continuity is well supported and has excellent predictability, both along strike and down-dip.  The results of the review suggest that a reduction in the total estimated resources and reserves should be expected.  Further work and analysis is ongoing to assess the effect of these expected reductions in resources and reserves on Project economics.  The Company has engaged MDA to prepare an updated resource report pursuant to NI 43-101.  In addition, the Company has engaged Kappes, Cassiday & Associates of Reno, Nevada ("KCA") to update the reserve estimates for the Project based upon current technical information, cost estimates and prices for gold and silver. The updated resource and reserve estimates are expected to be available in early January.

About Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd:

The Company is developing a gold-silver, open pit, heap leach operation on its fully-permitted 50% owned Soledad Mountain property, located just outside the town of Mojave in Kern County in southern California.  The Project will use conventional open pit mining methods and the cyanide heap leach and Merrill-Crowe processes to recover gold and silver from crushed, agglomerated ore.
