Franklin Mining Announces Additional Machinery to Arrive in Bolivia

Carson City, NV, Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franklin Mining Inc. (OTC Pink: FMNJ) has received word from global shipping company Current International Freight that the machinery purchased in 2021 is finally headed to South America. Franklin Mining CEO William Petty purchased the machinery to be custom-built by Heckler Fabrication of California in 2020 and although it has been completed for over a year, the lack of shipping containers on the West Coast of America, as well as supply-chain issues, plagued the voyage until now.

As previously announced on Twitter, the machinery was headed south on a shipping vessel but was then randomly selected for inspection by U.S. Customs. The machine has passed inspection and will be leaving for Bolivia on vessel NYK Joanna September 9, with an estimated arrival in early October.

Once the ship arrives in Iquique, Chile, it will be taken by ground transport and relocated to a mining area in Tipuani, Bolivia. The mining area will be selected by Franklin Mining VP of Bolivia Fernando Freudenthal, based upon the report issued by geologist Dr. Michael Biste.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that the ‘green machine’ is finally headed to Bolivia!” exclaimed CEO William Petty, “This is what all of us have been waiting for.”
