LAS VEGAS, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTCQB: FLPC), an innovative and diversified company focused on supplying "Mined in America" strategic industrial metals for current and emerging technologies, continues to execute their strategy for rapidly expanding mine exploration and operational activities with the launch of Pathways of Production (POP). According to First Liberty CEO, Don Nicholson, the POP program evolved from the company's commitment to directly update company shareholders and investors.
"Our First Liberty management team established Pathways of Production to ensure effective and timely public awareness of our continued progress towards mining operations, as well as progress on our exploration-to-development plans," Nicholson said. "POP is basically an investor communications program that will be executed through scheduled, direct-online newsletters, as well as through traditional news release and social media strategies. As an expanding company, all aspects of our operations must be defined, measured, improved and effectively communicated. POP provides us with that ability to directly achieve such levels of communication."
First Liberty's initial POP outreach will be focused on the company's Fencemaker operation. The Fencemaker mine, located in Pershing County, Nevada, is scheduled to begin operations this spring with the mining of stibnite (antimony) ore. The ore will be processed at a nearby company milling site for initial sale as an antimony concentrate. FLPC is finalizing engineering documents for the mining & milling operations and the Fencemaker team is also preparing to complete certain reclamation operations on the property.
In announcing the launch of the POP outreach program, First Liberty Vice President of Operations, Robert Reynolds, noted the company's core objective. "First Liberty's focus is to serve as a leader in the exploration and mining sector by supplying 'Mined in America' strategic industrial metals to power the future. Therefore, we believe it is of critical importance to demonstrate First Liberty's plans, timelines, opportunities, challenges and successes along the path of becoming a near-term producer to all shareholders and investors. Pathways to Production will allow us that direct line of investor communications while keeping us accountable to our stated objectives."ABOUT FIRST LIBERTY POWER CORPORATION: First Liberty Power Corporation (FLPC: OTCQB) is an innovative and diversified company focused on supplying "Mined in America" strategic industrial metals for current and emerging technologies in order to power the future.
