Reno, NV, Jun 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — First Liberty Power Corp. (FLPC: OTCPK), a diversified exploration, development and mining company focused on accumulating and developing strategic mineral resources for America’s future, has increased its ownership interest to a full 50% in the Fencemaker project and Central Nevada mill, as well as secured a 50% interest in five additional prospective antimony properties (direct ownership of unpatented claims) in Pershing County, Nevada.
First Liberty Power CEO Don Nicholson detailed the evolution of the property advancements. “On August 22, 2012, we entered into a share purchase agreement with Group8 Mining Innovations (“G8MI”) and its then wholly-owned subsidiary, Group8 Minerals (“G8 Minerals”), providing First Liberty with a 40.5% interest in the development of a Stibnite (Antimony) property known as Fencemaker, together with the milling project. Based on our belief in the geological prospects of Fencemaker, the merits of an antimony-centric / centralized milling program, and the benefits of securing additional potential antimony ore supply at a nominal cost, the Company has entered into a subsequent share purchase agreement with G8MI and Group8 Minerals that has increased First Liberty Power’s ownership of Group8 Minerals to 100%. This results in FLPC having a direct 50% interest in the Company’s three core strategic assets of the Fencemaker mine, the centralized milling program and additional potential properties”.
Available information on the history, prospects and potential of each property will be added to the Company website. According to CEO Nicholson, while resources are not immediately available to fully develop each of these new properties, they are a core component of the Company’s mid to long term strategy to secure now key antimony properties in the Nevada region. “First Liberty has demonstrated to the investor community that management, and its partners, can take an old historical mine, remediate it, and bring it into initial operation with very limited funds”, Nicholson said. “Through this year, we intend to replicate this smaller scale but highly efficient model, to fulfill the vision of opening a milling operation that will process ore into to a higher and much more valuable concentrate.”
First Liberty Power will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to inform and update all interested parties of advancements in Company mining and financial operations.
