Lincoln Mining Corporation, is pleased to announce that it has engaged JBR Environmental Consultants, Inc. (JBR) in Reno, Nevada for permitting work at both of the Company's projects in Nevada - Pine Grove and Bell Mountain. The results of this work will assist the Company in its goal of advancing the properties to production.
Pine Grove Permitting Work
Three work orders have been approved by Lincoln for JBR to commence permitting work at the Pine Grove gold property in Lyon County, Nevada. Work Order #1 directs JBR to assist in permitting efforts with the U.S. Forest Service and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection - Bureau of Mine Regulations and Reclamation. Permitting and bonding are required for Lincoln to conduct geotechnical work, condemnation drilling, water-well drilling, monitor-well drilling and to further define certain reclamation obligations. Work Order #2 is for habitat evaluation and sage-grouse and bat surveys. Work Order #3 is to conduct surveys for threatened, endangered, sensitive, and non-native species. Additional biological surveys will be required during 2014. Subsequent data will be used for permitting in an effort to advance Pine Grove into an open-pit, heap-leach gold operation.
Bell Mountain Permitting Work
Lincoln has also approved Work Order #1 at the Company's Bell Mountain gold-silver property in Churchill County, Nevada. JBR will conduct work to evaluate potential habitat for threatened, endangered, and sensitive species and present its findings to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Additional biological surveys will be required during 2014. Subsequent data will be used for permitting in an effort to advance Bell Mountain into an open-pit, heap-leach gold-silver operation.
