Franklin Mining to Begin Exploration of Copper Mine in Chile

Carson City, Nevada, May 18, 2020 – Franklin Mining Inc. (OTC Pink: FMNJ) has entered into a Riesgo Compartido (Joint Venture) with Inversiones Mineras Scorpius Chile SpA represented by Francisco Coeymans Ossandón. This agreement covers the joint effort to explore the Chilean Los Totems copper mine held by Ossandón and Inversiones Mineras Scorpius Chile SpA.

This grassroots exploration project represents a unique opportunity to explore for high-grade Copper and Gold/Silver mineralization amenable to U/G exploitation and/or shallow open pit exploitation at a time when a new copper cycle is beginning. Over 22,000 hectares of copper mines are expected to be covered in this venture. Small third-party claims located within the perimeter of the larger land package are currently being mined by “Pirquineros” with significant oxide Cu mineralization 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 to host similar mineralization.

Franklin Mining CEO William Petty is currently in negotiations to partner with David Moore, a world-renowned geologist and the owner of MDP Trading with over three decades of experience, for the duration of this project. Mr. Moore hails from Australia and currently resides in Laos. He will be assisting Petty and Ossandón in the facilitation of this venture.
