Las Vegas, NV,, Nov. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTCQB: FLPC), an innovative and diversified exploration, development and mining company focused on "Mined in America" strategic industrial minerals, today announced ongoing progress in its Fencemaker mining and milling operations.
First Liberty CEO, Don Nicholson, noted that ongoing blasting and mining work at Fencemaker has advanced to four blasts per week, with more than 350 tons of stibnite (antimony) ore prepared for shipment. "We anticipate that the first container loads will be ready for sale by mid-December," Nicolson said. "At that time we will provide details on ore grading and deliverable quantities."
Mr. Nicholson further noted that First Liberty CFO Mario Beckles recently spent a week at the Fencemaker site to advance accounting / production oversight policies and mining operation procedures. A follow-up visit by Mr. Beckles is scheduled for early December to review and finalize the systems, as well as to implement additional testing protocols for ore grading and transportation logistics.
Vice President of Operations Bob Reynolds announced that the company is continuing to progress on design and finance for the mill operation in Lovelock, Nevada, which is close to the Fencemaker mine site. "By having our own milling facility, we will have the ability to process the ore at a faster rate as well as achieve greater recovery and grading," Mr. Reynolds said. "These processes will result in an ore concentrate of 50% and above, which has a greater value to the company. Upon completion of mill design specifications, we anticipate submitting the permit applications in December."
Nicholson completed the Pathways of Progress update by announcing preparations are underway for the inaugural First Liberty Power Annual General Shareholders Meeting (AGM) at a date early in 2014.
FLPC will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to update advancements in their mining and overall operations.

ABOUT ANTIMONY: 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, bullets and plain bearings. Antimony compounds are prominent additives for chlorine- and bromine-containing fire retardants found in many commercial and domestic products. An emerging application is the use of antimony in microelectronics.
