First Liberty Power Corp Acquires Interest In Antimony Property

Stocks in this article: FLPC

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTC: FLPC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire a 40.5% interest in an Antimony property known as Fencemaker, and a related mineral processing operation intended to process the Antimony ore.

The intent of this transaction is two-fold.   First, it is the Company's first major action to increase its scope of operations into additional minerals that are critical to current and emerging high-tech and alternative energy industries in the US. Second, the Antimony property represents an opportunity for the Company to have production revenue in the near term, which is expected to be less than six months. This is a major step forward towards the advancement of our top priority, which is to build a portfolio of properties and interests that will deliver returns to our investors and shareholders in both the short and long term. Additional details on the transaction are available on the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC (at http://www.sec.gov/) on August 28, 2012.  The Company will release additional details on the Fencemaker property shortly, and details on the potential for near term revenues. 

Antimony is typically refined from stibnite ore and is used as a hardening alloy for lead, especially in storage batteries and cable sheaths, and is also used in bearing metal, type metal, solder, collapsible tubes and foil, sheet and pipes, and semiconductor technology.  Stibnite itself is used for metal antifriction alloys, metal type, shot, batteries, and in the manufacture of fireworks. Antimony salts are used in the rubber and textile industries, in medicine, and glassmaking.  Antimony is presently priced at approximately $12,500/MT, making it a high value strategic industrial metal, with stable and growing demand.   Of particular interest is its use in battery technologies, and high tech industries.

In announcing this acquisition, CEO Don Nicholson put a particular emphasis on the opportunity to develop and re-activate the Fencemaker mine operation.  "The property last produced in the 1990's on an artisanal basis and we believe that modern, efficient mining and refining methods will make this a very successful operation." Furthermore, he stated, "Our anticipation of being able to generate revenue in the near term will work to better capitalize the Company as it expands its portfolio further into the critical elements market. We are working tirelessly to increase our shareholder value and see this as an extremely positive step in that direction.  While our foundation remains very firmly rooted in our Lithium properties, we will continue to actively develop these projects in conjunction with additional strategic minerals, including Antimony, enabling the Company to have multiple opportunities for near and long-term revenue streams."

About UsFirst Liberty is a Nevada based mineral exploration company with a focus on the exploration, development, mining and refining of strategic industrial metals in the USA.  With a foundation in lithium exploration and a recent addition of antimony mining and development, it is our vision to significantly contribute towards ensuring a domestic supply of those strategic mineral elements that are critical to current and emerging technologies.  We will continue assembling a portfolio of properties and interests in several key areas, ranging in developmental to advanced stage exploration, to those being production ready.
