VANCOUVER, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its U.S.
subsidiary, Lincoln Gold US Corp., has staked an additional 63 lode
claims at the Oro Cruz gold property in Imperial County, California.
The new claims cover structural projections of the American Girl and
Madre-Padre gold deposits which were mined in the late 1980's to the
mid 1990's. Lincoln's new claims cover prospective pediment areas as
well as various gold prospects in local bedrock. The Oro Cruz property
now consists of 20 lode claims held under a mining lease, 68 lode
claims previously staked by Lincoln, and the 63 new lode claims for a
total of 151 claims comprising over 3,000 acres. Lincoln controls 100%
of the property.
As previously disclosed on September 21, 2010, an independent Technical
Report by Tetra Tech Corp. (Golden, CO) reports a National Instrument
43-101 inferred resource of 341,800 ozs gold contained in 4,835,000
tons of mineralized material grading 0.070 oz per ton gold using a 0.02
oz per ton gold cutoff grade. Approximately 90% of the resource is in
the main Oro Cruz deposit which is a shallow-dipping tabular body with
good to excellent continuity of mineralization. The deposit remains
open down dip. During 1995-1996, over a 12-month period, the Oro Cruz
mine produced 61,000 ozs gold prior to being shut down due to low gold
prices. Production was from open pit and underground. Lincoln retains
all technical data from 491 drill holes, 13,628 blast holes, and 2,960
underground samples. Ore-grade material is exposed in the pit and in
the underground workings. The underground workings are accessible and
in excellent condition. Please see the full report which is available
on www.sedar.com under Lincoln's profile.
