VANCOUVER, June 15 /CNW/ - LINCOLN GOLD CORPORATION (OTCBB:LGCPF) is
pleased to announce that International Enexco Ltd. (TSXV - IEC) has commenced
core drilling on Lincoln's Hannah property in the southwestern Trinity Range
of Churchill County, Nevada. Gold targets consist of an epithermal breccia
zone and a possible quartz-tourmaline-gold system, both hosted in Triassic
metavolcanic rocks. Enexco has obtained BLM permitting for 17 drill sites and
is presently on their fourth core hole, EH-04. Five holes are initially
planned to test for anomalous gold with follow-up drilling as warranted.
Previous drilling of 11 reverse circulation holes by Lincoln Gold encountered
near surface oxidized breccia intercepts of 10 ft @ 0.094 opt gold plus 5.1
opt silver and 35 ft @ 0.016 opt gold. Miranda Gold Corp. recently staked 52
new lode claims (Neon property) adjacent to the Hannah claim block, citing a
possible quartz-tourmaline-gold system.
The agreement between Lincoln Gold Corp. and International Enexco Ltd.
calls for Enexco to complete a drilling program of 8,000 ft in 12 holes to
earn a 60% interest in the Hannah property.
In other news, Lincoln Gold continues to advance the Pine Grove gold
property located in the Pine Grove Hills, approximately 20 miles south of
Yerington in Lyon County, Nevada. JBR Environmental Consultants of Reno,
Nevada has commenced a biological survey on the property as partial
requirement for drilling and development permitting. Additional surveys will
be conducted to advance the permitting process. The Pine Grove NI 43-101
technical report was updated in December 2008 and can be found on Lincoln's
website. Infill drilling to upgrade the existing resource is planned as per
the recommendations in the technical report.
