Vancouver, British Columbia – Paul Saxton, President of Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG (“Lincoln” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed an initial field exploration program on the southern part of its Pine Grove gold property, which is located approximately 20 miles from Yerington, Nevada, in the Pine Grove Hills. Positive assay results have been received on rock samples taken as part of the program.
The field exploration program focused on the north facing flank of a steep ridge, approximately 3,000 ft. (914 m) south of the Wheeler gold deposit. This new target area is on the Southern Cross lode claims and is 100% controlled by Lincoln and its joint venture partner, Goldcliff Resource Corporation. Lincoln geologists believe that the anomalous gold-copper values in the new target area may represent “leakage” from concealed mineralization. The steep ridge lies between two semi-parallel, north-south trending topographic lineaments that cut Jurassic granodiorite that line up with the Wheeler deposit. Granodiorite is the preferred host rock at Pine Grove.
Sixteen grab samples were collected from various old prospect dumps that were previously sampled by Teck Resources in the early 1990’s and found to be anomalous in gold. Of the 16 samples collected by Lincoln, 75% contained detectable gold and seven samples returned gold assays greater than 0.5 g/t gold. Anomalous gold included: 0.516 g/t; 0.638 g/t; 0.772 g/t; 1.31 g/t; 1.52 g/t; 1.91 g/t and as high as 10.9 g/t Au. Anomalous copper is also present and is a characteristic of the Pine Grove gold system. High copper values included: 1,410 ppm; 1,435 ppm; 1,775 ppm Cu and 1.83% and 2.75% Cu.
Additional geologic mapping, rock-chip sampling and a soil sampling program in this target area are planned for the summer of 2017.
