VANCOUVER, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced metallurgical testing of mineralized material from its Pine Grove gold property in Lyon County, Nevada. Test work will complement and update past work carried out by Teck Resources. The goal of the metallurgical work is to determine ore parameters regarding heap leach operations in an effort to fast-track the property to production.
McClelland Laboratories, Inc. in Reno, Nevada has been contracted to conduct the metallurgical test work over the next few months. Sample material consists of 800 ft of large diameter drill core as well as samples from historic gold-bearing dump material and tailings. Test work will include bottle roll leach tests, column leach tests, bulk density determinations, crushing indexes, and other pertinent tests including waste rock characterization. Test results will be incorporated into the scoping and feasibility studies which are being planned now.
Gold resources, as outlined in a NI 43-101 compliant technical report filed on SEDAR on January 22, 2009, in the Wheeler and Wilson deposits are estimated by MineFill Services Inc. at 6.06 million tons Inferred resources grading 0.053 opt gold at a cutoff grade of 0.010 opt gold (assays capped at 0.500 opt gold) containing approximately 320,000 ozs gold. As numerous geochemical targets remain untested, the project holds potential for the extension of mineralized areas.
Mr. Jeffrey Wilson, the Company's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, supervised the preparation of this news release.
Lincoln Mining Corp. is a Canadian resource company with several projects in various stages of exploration and development, which include the Pine Grove and Hannah properties in Nevada and the La Bufa property in Mexico.
