  • Projects

    La Joya - Bolivia

    Current

    The second Bolivian mining concession, commonly known as La Joya, includes a land area of approximately 2700 hectares. All rights and privileges for the mineral resources to be found within this concession have been formally transferred to Cooperative Minera aurifera Nueva La Joya Ltda. Presently, the Cooperative is producing 200 tons of ore per day, and this processing rate is anticipated to increase based on the plant upgrade design requirements and supported by the required capital investments received.

    Madre de Dios Area - Peru

    Developing

    Franklin Mining has entered into an agreement May 2, 2014 with Inveminas Centro De Investigacion Y Altos Estudios De Energia Y Minas to develop a total of 10,000 hectares, starting with 2,000 hectares for the development to prove the existence of Gold at any point and oil, gas or existing minerals extension. Being of knowledge that ore grades range from 200 to 600 mg per M3 within the mining corridor.

    Ch-Mine - Peru

    Developing

    The potential of the Ch-Mine is huge. There are 5 gold mountains with 14 claims. 1,103 hetares total, and 2,000 hectares of land.

    Los Totems - Peru

    Developing

    This greenfields or grassroots exploration project represents a unique opportunity to explore for high–grade Cu and Au/Ag mineralization amenable to shallow open pit and/or U/G exploitation at a time when a new Cu cycle is beginning. Long contiguous claim blocks totaling over 22,000 hectares held by CBB for over 24 years. Small third-party claims located within the perimeter of CBB's larger land package are currently being mined by “Pirquineros”. Significant oxide Cu mineralization is being direct shipped to Enami leaching facilities in Copiapo. These “windows” of mineralization are widespread and together with geological mapping, paint a clear picture of the potential of the CBB claims to host similar mineralization.

  • About Franklin Mining

    Franklin Mining, Inc. (FMNJ) is a publicly-traded, international mining and exploration company headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada with offices in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The company's principal U.S mining property was the Franklin Mines located near Idaho Springs in Clear Creek County, Colorado. Started as a Colorado exploration and mining company in 1864, Franklin Mining and Mill Co. worked multiple mines located approximately 1.5 miles north of Idaho Springs, Colorado.

     

    The company quickly grew to become a number of underground mining operations and its own flotation mill producing concentrates of gold, silver, lead, and zinc. Mine operations began in 1865 and continued until the United State government curtailed gold mining during World War I. Mine operations, allowed to resume during the Great Depression, were again curtailed following the outbreak of World War II. There has been limited mining activity at the Franklin Mines since.

     

    Franklin Consolidated Mining Co, Inc. had been formed under the laws of the State of Delaware in 1976 for the purpose of acquiring and developing mineral properties. The original Franklin Mines then acquired in 1989 and mining and milling operation began that same year.

    Partner

    Franklin mining purchases/acquires/leases partners in a specific project. Preferably a producing mine, a mine close to production or mine with advanced feasibility studies. Projects in the early stages of development should not be considered.

    Analyze

    FM analyzes and technically approves the viability of the project based on the technical and financial merits of the property from the reserves, tenor, grade, volume, and operational difficulties standpoint. This approval must be done by experienced in season technicians and professional geologist not by businessman.

    Feasibility

    Once the feasibility to develop the project is approved then the search and evaluation of prospective operators begin. These operators must have a proven track record, experience operating in the region, experienced in the type of operation to be implemented, proper equipment and personnel. The rigorous selection of operators must be approved by the board and not by a sole individual.

    Scheduling

    Schedules of financing royalties and operational activities must be carefully prepared and negotiated
