Las Vegas, NV, Sept. 3, 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, announced that their shareholders voted in favor of the proposed amendments to the Company's articles at the Special Meeting of Stockholders held on August 30, 2013.
First Liberty Power Board Chairman Robert Reynolds, reported that the first amendment, to increase the Authorized Common Shares to 1,080,000,000, was approved with over 98% voting in favor. The second amendment, to allow for the creation of up to 10,000,000 shares of "blank check" preferred shares, was also approved with over 96% in favor.
"Our board of directors is very pleased with the strong and positive showing of First Liberty shareholders in this important change to our Company's structure," Reynolds said. "We had over 41% represented at the meeting, for a total of 194,164,503 shares voted. We are continuing to work on strengthening First Liberty Power by incorporating sound, open and transparent practices, all of which seek to enhance investor confidence. With shareholder approval of these two amendments, management and the board now possess an increased ability to advance and expand the Company's entire operations".
According to First Liberty Power CEO, Don Nicholson, the successful vote bodes well for the Company's future, which includes the mining of stibnite ore on the Fencemaker property and obtaining additional funding for production and milling. "Our mining team has completed revisions to the water management plan and is waiting for engineering and Nevada Department of Environment Protection (NDEP) approval, which we anticipate by early to mid-September." Nicholson, who revisited the mine the day before the shareholder meeting, commented further, "We are in advanced stage discussions with buyers for the stibnite ore, which we will have in place upon the first production of mineral ores. These arrangements will provide the mining team the flexibility to ship and sell a lower antimony content concentrate upon first production, while further efforts are untaken to bring a mill into operation."
FLPC will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to inform and update all interested parties of advancements in our mining and financial operations.
