Inception Mining Announces Publication by the National Forest Service of a Decision Notice and Approval of Their Plan of Operations on Its U.P. and Burlington Property

SALT LAKE CITY, April 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inception Mining Inc. (OTCQB:IMII) ("Inception" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the National Forest Service, Salmon-Challis Ranger District (NFS), has approved Inception's Plan of Operations and has published a Decision Notice associated with their U.P. and Burlington Project located in Lemhi County, Idaho. The approved Plan of Operations will allow Inception to construct approximately 3,000 feet of road across U.S. Forest Service (USFS) lands to Inception's U.P. and Burlington patented mining claims. The approval of this Plan of Operations is a result of the USFS's finding of "no significant impact" after its evaluation of an Environmental Assessment study. Commencement of operations associated with the Plan of Operations is contingent upon payment of a performance bond of $6,300 and is expected in early spring, as soon as the snow levels permit.

This improved access will allow Inception to conduct further mineral exploration and a bulk sampling program on its U.P. and Burlington property. Brian T. Brewer, the Company's COO, stated, "Approval of our Plan of Operations is a significant milestone for Inception and will allow the company to conduct further exploration activities on its U.P. and Burlington property necessary to prove a mineable reserve. We also expect to utilize this improved route to haul a sizable bulk sample to an off-site toll mill." Inception has also submitted a Special Road Use Permit (SRUP) for commercial use of other USFS roads in the area of its U.P. and Burlington Property. Approval of this SRUP is expected by mid-April 2014.
