"We are in the right market at the right time," stated Mr. William Petty, Chief Executive officer of Franklin Mining, Inc.

Mr. William Petty has confirmed that a Pilot Processing plant has been built and will be in full operation by January, 2013. The Plant in Operation will be processing 80 tons a day, yielding 480 grams of Gold anticipated 90% recovery rate at an average of 6 grams per ton. The Company anticipates that the earnings will be reflected in the first quarter.

The Company has recently announced that the initial results of La Joya's joint-venture mining operation have exceeded the initial expectation which were anticipated to yield within the range of 5.0 grams per ton. The initial results acquired, from the approximate 1,100 tons evaluated, indicates that the gold content present will be a substantial 20 percent higher, at an impressive 6.0 grams per ton.
