Making Nitric Acid with Magnesium Nitrate?

I want to make Nitric Acid with Magnesium Nitrate instead if Potassium or Sodium Nitrate. When you mix copper, a nitrate salt e.g. Potassium or Sodium Nitrate and Hydrochloric Acid together it creates Nitrogen Dioxide gas. My Question is, will this still happen with Magnesium Nitrate?
