Lincoln Mining Begins Drilling at La Bufa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2011) - Lincoln Mining Corporation, (TSX VENTURE:LMG) ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that core drilling has begun at its 100% owned La Bufa project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The approximate 4,500 to 5,000 meter program will continue over the next few months on the northwest part of the property. Twenty-eight holes are planned with an average length of 525 feet or 160 meters. Five large, distinct targets have been identified from Aurico Gold Inc.'s (previously Gammon Gold) GyC property boundary in the south, across Lincoln's La Bufa property to the northern boundary of the La Bufa property, a distance of over 5 kilometers.

The drill holes will test for extensions of the main mineralized structures that run in a northwest-southeast direction. Drill targets have been defined by extensive geophysics, surface rock-chip and soil sampling, and geologic mapping of the "Older Volcanics" (local host rock). Any intersections of gold/silver bearing structures will be encouraging in this under-explored area. Surface rock-chip sampling has returned values ranging from 0.32 gpt to 21.5 gpt gold and 3.2gpt to 978 gpt silver. (See July 27, 2010 news release for all results). Since 2008, Lincoln geologists have been focusing on defining drill targets in the northwest part of the property which is believed to have substantial mineral potential.

The La Bufa property is located in the prolific mining district of Guadalupe y Calvo where historic production has been estimated at over 2 million ounces of gold and 28 million ounces of silver. Lincoln's property surrounds the GyC property owned by Aurico. Aurico has recently announced inferred resources of over 1 million ounces of gold and 45.6 million ounces of silver on its GyC property which lies just to the southeast of Lincoln's drill area. (See February 28, 2011 news release by Gammon Gold.)
