VANCOUVER, July 22 /CNW/ - Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amending lease agreement ("Amending Agreement") with Lyon Grove LLC on its Wilson property which comprises part of the Company's Pine Grove project in Nevada.
The Amending Agreement, amongst other things, changes the sliding scale net smelter returns royalty ("NSR") of 3-7% currently applicable in respect of any future production from Wilson property, to a fixed NSR at a reduced rate of 2.5%. As consideration for the royalty reduction, Lyon Grove will receive US $150,000 cash and 500,000 common shares in the capital of the Company following receipt of requisite approval of the transaction from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and an additional US $150,000 within one year thereafter.
The Company believes that the significantly reduced NSR will facilitate financing opportunities as it plans for the next stages of development for its Pine Grove property.
The Amending Agreement remains subject to approval of the Exchange.
Lincoln Mining Corp. is a Canadian precious metals exploration and development company with several projects in various stages of exploration and development which include the Pine Grove gold property, the Oro Cruz gold property in California and the La Bufa gold-silver property in Mexico.
