Lincoln Mining to Commence Drilling La Bufa Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) -Lincoln Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:LMG) ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling at its 100% owned La Bufa property in Chihuahua State, Mexico is scheduled to start in early June. A 5,000 meter drill program is initially planned. This is the first drilling that has been carried out on the property since 2003 & 2008, when 17 holes in total were drilled in the southeast part of the property. Drill intercept results included 10.70 gpt of gold and 516 gpt silver over 1.5m, 8.70 gpt gold and 503 gpt silver over 1.61m, 1.55 gpt gold and 91.1 gpt silver over 0.40m and 0.402 gpt gold and 6.60 gpt silver over 1.55m (see Company's news release of June 23, 2008 for complete results).

Since 2008 Lincoln geologists have been focusing on defining drill targets in the northwest part of the property, which the Company's management believes to have substantially more mineral potential than the southeast area. Programs of geophysics, rock-chip and soil sampling, and geologic mapping have been completed covering an area of over 15 square kilometers (see news release of July 27, 2010). Five large, distinct targets have been identified all the way from Gammon Gold's GyC property boundary in the south to the northern boundary of the La Bufa property, a distance of over 5 kilometers. The targets are all focused on the "lower volcanic" or older rocks and historic production has been estimated at over 2 million ounces of gold and 28 million ounces of silver. Also Gammon Gold has recently announced inferred resources of over 1 million ounces of gold and 45.6 million ounces of silver on its GyC property (See February 28, 2011 news release by Gammon Gold).

Lincoln is now finalizing its environmental reviews and permitting and is about to choose its drill contractor.
