Reno NV, Aug. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Power Corp. (FLPC: OTCPK), a diversified exploration, development and mining company focused on strategic minerals for America's future, today announced its entry into two Mining Lease Agreements for prospective gold properties located in Winnemucca, Nevada.
First Liberty Power CEO, Don Nicholson, highlighted key points of the agreements. "On August 20th, the Company completed two 20-year mineral lease agreements with Krugerrand, LLC, covering two five-acre private land properties in Winnemucca, Nevada. These agreements provide First Liberty with the exclusive right and privilege to explore for, develop, and mine any ores, minerals, and material on, or under, the properties." Full details on the agreements are available on the Form 8-K filed with the SEC and are available at: http://www.firstlibertypower.com/investors/filings/
CEO Nicholson added, "The addition of these prospective gold producers to our portfolio of properties is intended to complement our strategic vision of becoming a major supplier of US mined and refined strategic metals, by bringing these near term prospects into production in a simple and efficient manner. All positive cash flow that is achieved will serve to assist First Liberty in meeting its operating and overhead obligations, and correspondingly reduce and help eliminate reliance on other costly external sources of finance. Additionally, as First Liberty delivers upon the implementation of its plans for a local mill, further property developments can be realistically undertaken and implemented to achieve our long term vision."
COO Jimmy Trikeriotis provided further details. "These two adjacent properties, which are approximately 70 miles from Lovelock, are both placer gold prospective properties that have had limited artisanal type gold recovery activities undertaken on them historically. We have already received preliminary regulatory approval for exploration activities on the properties, which includes mapping, surveying, physical exploration and sampling work. Furthermore, the permit application for placer gold mining has also been submitted. The company already has in place the critical exploration equipment, transportation, initial crew, key working partners, as well as a local base in Winnemucca established. Subject only to final confirmation from regulators, we plan on commencing on-site exploration related activities on September 2nd, while awaiting for placer mining operations approval which would allow for the dry processing of up to 500 metric tonnes of raw ore on site per day. The expectations are that as early as Sept 15th, photos, maps, and other specific information emerging from our exploration work for these specific properties will be available for the investment community."
Mr. Nicholson further commented, "The First Liberty management team is pursuing every opportunity to bring additional funding options, including these anticipated gold operations, to assist us in achieving our operational goals and financial stability. Moreover, the company will continue to locate properties that are complementary to our current investment properties, with an emphasis on properties with near term production potential as the company continues implementation of the mill project."
First Liberty Power will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to update advancements in Company operations.
