Las Vegas, NV, July 24, 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 the Fencemaker/Antimony Mine "Plan of Operation" has received Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approval. James Vogan, Director of Stockpile Reserves, LLC (SRL) and Fencemaker Operations Manager issued the announcement.
Mr. Vogan officially announced that the Fencemaker Mine operation has received approval for production operations. Mr. Vogan stated, "While several notices, modifications and explorations of the Fencemaker Mine have come and gone over the last seven years, the plan of operation is now in effect, paving the way for antimony production to begin," Vogan said. "The last time Fencemaker was fully operational was in the early 1980's."
In announcing the plan of operations approval, Vogan addressed the FLPC mining timeline.
"At this point, the outside of the mine is secure and water removal almost completed," Vogan said. "The final pre-mining work involves securing the inside of the mine followed by readying the mine for the first blast for production. We anticipate that first mine production can begin in early August."
VP operations Bob Reynolds, FLPC congratulated Mr. Vogan and cited his dedication and perseverance to get the final permit in place to begin mine operations. "James commented that today is a great day for SRL and all those who have worked so hard to achieve this milestone in the history of the Fencemaker mine. It was with his leadership and many other talented people who worked as a team that First Liberty Power is delighted to announce this accomplishment along with our strategic partner, SRL."
Mr. Reynolds provided a further announcement that he and Mr. Vogan recently participated in a conference with the Defense Logistics Agency - Strategic Materials (DLA SM) and the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA). The purpose of the conference was to elicit industry input for a focused assessment of downstream material supply chain "weak links" of antimony for the 2015 NDS Requirements Report.
"We were pleased to participate in this conference about the future of antimony supply," Reynolds said. "The fact that FLPC and SRL were invited to participate in this conference, alongside a number of highly-regarded companies and government representatives are indicative of our emerging prominence in the antimony mining industry."
