AMERICAN FORK, Utah, Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - New Permits - Clifton Mining Company has just been issued two new small mine permits from US and State Government agencies. The new permits were issued on the Lost Mine Road Mine and the Cactus Mill areas. Said Keith Moeller VP, Property Development, "These are important permits to now have in our hands and the timing of the granting of these permits could not have been better. The Lost Mine Road Permit is located within our Clifton shear zone silver/gold system, where geological analysis reported more than 4.8 million of ounces measured and indicated silver resources and 26,000 ounces of measured and indicated gold resources, which only covers a small percent of the visible outcrops." (See website for more resource information).
These new permits also give Clifton an important advantage for future planning and for joint venture options with the required base work now completed. In total, Clifton now holds five (5) small mine permits, including one on Clifton's patented high grade Cane Springs historical gold mine, where drilling intersected a number of high-grade gold intercepts. Each of these permits can be expanded to up to 20 acres, sufficient for large scale mining operations.
Exploration, Development, and Production - Clifton Mining Company has received the report that for December 2020, Desert Hawk Gold Corp. (Desert Hawk) sold 119 ounces of gold and 109 ounces of silver recovered from the leach pad.
