Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTCQB: FLPC), an innovative and diversified mine exploration and development company focused on "Mined in America" strategic industrial minerals, today announced that they are drawing near to production and sales of stibnite ore (antimony) from their Fencemaker mine.
Fencemaker Operations Director, James Vogan of Stockpile Reserves, LLC, confirmed that the external mine-site drainage is nearing completion and the internal mine Water Management Plan (WMP) is being implemented. "Once we put the finishing touches on the remaining details of the Water Management Plan, we will schedule a final site inspection with the appropriate regulatory departments," Vogan said. "We anticipate that the inspection will occur next week, at which point SRL, First Liberty Power and Small Mine Development will take the final steps required to begin mining stibnite ore (antimony)."
In conjunction with the final WMP approval, Bob Reynolds, VP of Operations for First liberty Power, disclosed that the Company has secured a first buyer for the lower concentration stibnite ore. "While our management teams have been focused on bringing Fencemaker to production, we have also been diligently working on securing purchasers for the ore once it is mined, and an initial threshold grading achieved," Reynolds said. "When those near term objectives are achieved, we will commence the filing of permits and engineering designs for our milling site operation so that the ore can be further upgraded."
Antimony is a lustrous gray strategic industrial mineral found in nature primarily as the sulfide mineral stibnite. Antimony compounds have been known since ancient times and were once used for cosmetics. Today, the largest applications for metallic antimony are as alloying material for lead and tin and for lead antimony plates in lead-acid batteries. Alloying lead and tin with antimony improves the properties of the alloys which are used in solders, bulletsand plain bearings. Antimony compounds are prominent additives for chlorine- and bromine-containing fire retardantsfound in many commercial and domestic products. An emerging application is the use of antimony in microelectronics.
FLPC will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to inform and update all interested parties of advancements in their mining and financial operations.
