AMERICAN FORK, Utah, Oct. 28, 2021 /CNW/ - Clifton Mining Company ("Company") held its Annual General Meeting on Friday, October 22, 2021. Scott Moeller announced that a quorum of votes had been received and gave the results, supporting the re-election of each of the proposed directors and the appointment of the auditing firm. Ken Friedman briefly discussed the background and strategic positioning of the Company, noting that despite difficult times for the precious metals industry, the Company has accumulated more than $2 million in cash and holds more than 5 million shares of Desert Hawk Gold Corp. ("Desert Hawk"). The Company has also repurchased more than 3.5 million of its shares. Keith Moeller gave a detailed presentation of the progress of Desert Hawk, including the identification of a new deposit at Rainbow Hill, which Desert Hawk tentatively estimates at roughly 10 million tons, with the initial sampling averaging 0.025 ounces per ton gold. He explained this deposit appears to be an extension of the Kiewit deposit, with exploration work indicating additional extensions on the other sides of the Kiewit mine pit as well.
Clifton Mining Company has received the production and sales report from Desert Hawk Gold Corp. (Desert Hawk) for the month of September 2021. Desert Hawk, reported that during the month they sold 178 ounces of gold and 178 ounces of silver, from metals recovered from the leach pad. During the month, they also reported that an additional 9,614 tons of ore were crushed and added to the leach pad. Currently, there are an estimated 1,741 recoverable ounces of gold still on the pad. The average blasted gold ore grade going on the leach pad has also continued to increase over previous historical grades, with this month's average up to 0.0267 ounces per ton. Tonnage mined has been restricted by permitting limitations, but Desert Hawk management believes additional permits are soon forthcoming with the required notice period now complete, with no registered objections. Desert Hawk reports that the expanded permits will enable them to mine significantly greater tonnages. Clifton owns 5.81 million shares of Desert Hawk, as well as the property on which the operation resides.
Clifton's new website is now active and contains links to several of the Company's independent geological reports. Management invites all who have interest to read the reports and learn more about the history of the property and some of the exploration and development work that has occurred. The new website also contains a flyover view of the Kiewit mine pit and heap leach operations.
