LAS VEGAS, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FRANKLIN MINING, INC. (Pink Sheets:  FMNJ OTC:BB - News) – CEO William Petty has today announced a management reorganization designed to align Company Executives, Staff, and Operating Units, with core minerals and metals market sectors for each of its areas of operation. 

In discussing the reorganization, Mr. Petty confirms that Mustafa Dar has been removed as President.  Mr. Dar joined the Company in October 2011 and served as President during a critical period of Franklin's corporate restructuring. With the recently completed infrastructure improvements at the Company's primary mining operations in the Republic of Bolivia, today was the appropriate opportunity for Franklin to announce its search for an experienced mining executive to serve as President. In addition to his role as Chairman and CEO, Mr. Petty will serve as President until the search is complete.

In order to focus on all mining operations in the Republic of Bolivia, Mr. Beltran has been reassigned to the position of Controller, Franklin Mining, Bolivia.  Mr. Beltran had previously served as Chief Financial Officer, Franklin Mining, Inc.

In confirming today's announcements, Mr. Petty expressed his appreciation to both Mr. Dar and Mr. Beltran for their service to the Company and assistance to him, personally, as Franklin has during the past two years achieved several key goals.
