LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Franklin Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FMNJ) (FRANKFURT: FMJ) Chairman and CEO William Petty announces he has called his Board of Directors to a special meeting for the purpose of considering strategic initiatives to increase Franklin Mining's shareholder value.

"I want to assure Franklin shareholders that no new initiative will be approved unless it is instrumental in unlocking shareholder value.

Key US and South American executives, managers and consultants will participate in some of the Board discussions.
