Mining: A New Discovery Plus Permitting Progress

ALPINE, UT, Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Desert Hawk Gold Corp. [DHGC], Clifton's joint venture partner, has discovered what may be an additional gold deposit in our claim area.  The surface area of the deposit, 900 feet by 600 feet, is three to four times the surface area of the Kiewit deposit, and from 75 surface samples, the grades appear similar.  DHGC has now received 20 of the 22 permits and licenses necessary to put the Kiewit project into production.  It is working with both the Utah Department of Oil, Gas, and Mining and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to obtain the final two.  Once these permits are received, DHGC is planning to put the Kiewit project into production, and also to explore and develop this new project.
