SALT LAKE CITY, April 16, 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 completed a Surface Use Determination associated with their U.P. and Burlington Project located in Lemhi County, Idaho. This Surface Use Determination was completed in association with the recently approved Plan of Operations and pursuant to which the NFS investigated the "appropriateness of the project scope" and documented whether the proposed access was "reasonably incident" to the mining activities proposed on the patented mining claims.

The Surface Use Determination report was authored by an independent U.S. Forest Service geologist and included the following statements; "Review of applicable data indicates there is potential for further exploration and development of valuable mineral resources on the U.P. and Burlington claims based on historical data, regional and local geology, prior sampling that was done on the claims, and evidence of past underground mine development and mineral processing.", and, "Based on my review of pertinent historical data, regional and local geology information, and prior sampling data, there is sufficient evidence to conclude a mineral resource exists on the U.P. and Burlington claims."

Brian T. Brewer, CPG, the Company's COO, stated, "I am very happy with the findings and conclusions of this Surface Use Determination as it offers an independent review of the technical data and validation of the Company's conclusions. We are excited to commence our exploration efforts and put our theories and conclusions to the test."

Inception plans to commence exploration efforts and a bulk sampling program on the U.P. and Burlington Property in the Spring / Summer of 2014.
