VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2021 / Lincoln Gold Mining Inc. ('Lincoln' or the 'Company') (TSXV:LMG) reports that the core drill program at the Pine Grove property, announced on November 2, 2021, is in progress. With all drill pads having been constructed, a minimum of 2,400 feet of core drilling has been planned for the Wilson deposit area. The third drill hole has been completed at 325 feet with the remaining holes to be drilled over the next few weeks.
Bonding is also being put in place, as required by the United States Forest Service (USFS), to cover disturbances for pending water well drilling, condemnation drilling and geotechnical task for future site construction. Lincoln already has an approved Plan of Operations with the USFS for proposed process area geotechnical work, along with condemnation and water well drilling.
Environmental Impact Statement field work on Cultural Resource Studies, which is essential to the permitting process, is ongoing and expected to be completed by end of 2021. Kautz Environmental Consultants of Reno, NV, who are carrying out Cultural Resources Studies (Archeological and Anthropological), have completed the initial field work in the areas of direct affects. These are areas that will be impacted by future development as outlined in the Draft Mine Plan of Operations. Following completion of the archeological and anthropological field work, the final major baseline work remaining will be water well drilling and hydrologic modelling. Planning is underway for obtaining water well drilling bids and scheduling the work within the project's work timeline.
Paul Saxton, President and CEO comments: 'It is encouraging to reflect on the accomplishments that have occurred at the Pine Grove Gold Project over the last two years of Covid. While Lincoln's activities at the project have been slowed during the pandemic, we have been committed to advance the project through permitting.'
