Lincoln Mining announces Pine Grove drill results

VANCOUVER, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - The Pine Grove is Lincoln's flagship property where production is planned to take place in late 2011 as an open pit heap/leach operation. Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the first set of assays from the 50 to 55 confirmation drill hole program required for a new resource calculation which is designed to potentially upgrade the category of the resources on the property. This is all part of the scoping and feasibility studies now underway. The drilling is being carried out on the two patented claim areas, the Wilson and the Wheeler which form part of the property. The holes reported here are only from drilling on the Wilson area of the property. No 'new area' exploration drilling was included in this program, which is designed solely to reaffirm and potentially upgrade the gold resources outlined by a 160 hole program conducted by Teck Resources Ltd. in the early 1990's. The resources derived from this earlier drilling are designated as "inferred" because the work was carried out before NI 43-101 guidelines were in place. The new intersections will be included with the previous drilling by Teck to produce an updated resource calculation. A total of 15,000 feet of drilling is planned on the Wilson and Wheeler areas during this program.

Additional exploration drilling programs, designed to increase the size of the resource base, are being planned for later in the year to test numerous prospective areas on the Pine Grove property. Permitting for these programs is in progress under the jurisdiction of the US Forestry Service.

Intersections of Significance

Because of the number of intersections in the drilling we have listed only those over 5 feet in length and having a grade of greater than 0.7 grams per tonne. The full range of drill results will be posted on our website www.lincolnmining.com. These holes are from the Wilson property; drilling is now starting on the Wheeler where in the past higher grades were reported.
