Lincoln Mining Closes Procon Transactions With $3.4 Million Financing and Director Changes

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/22/12 -- Lincoln Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:LMG) ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news release of November 7, 2012, it has closed the transactions with Procon Mining and Tunnelling Ltd. ("Procon") as described below.

Convertible Debenture of $2,300,000

The Company has closed the private placement of a convertible debenture (the "Debenture") by the Company to Procon in an aggregate principal amount of $2,300,000, which is due and payable on November 22, 2015. The Debenture is convertible at any time, in whole or in part at the election of Procon, into up to 23,000,000 common shares of the Company on the basis of one common share for each $0.10 of principal. The Debenture bears interest at the rate of 6% per annum, calculated and payable monthly, on the outstanding principal amount. The Debenture is secured by a general security agreement granted by the Company.

A copy of the Debenture and the general security agreement will be filed under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

Private Placements of $1,100,000 and $500,000

The Company has closed the private placement of 22,000,000 common shares of the Company to Procon at a price of $0.05 per share for proceeds of $1,100,000.

The Company also closed a private placement of 10,000,000 common shares of the Company to Prairie Enterprises (Alberta) Inc., a private company controlled by Mr. Edward Yurkowski (who is the CEO, co-founder and a shareholder of Procon), at a price of $0.05 per share for proceeds of $500,000.

At the closing of the private placements, Procon holds approximately 29.0% of the Company's 158,860,203 issued and outstanding shares. On a partially-diluted basis assuming the exercise of the entire principal amount of the Debenture, Procon would hold approximately 37.9% of the Company's outstanding shares.

At the closing of the private placements, Mr. Yurkowski beneficially holds approximately 6.7% of the Company's issued and outstanding shares.

No finders fees or warrants were issued in connection with the private placements. All securities issued or issuable under the private placements (including the Debenture) will be subject to a four month hold period in Canada expiring on March 23, 2013, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.

Lincoln intends to use the proceeds raised from the private placements towards the purchase price for the acquisition of the Bell Mountain project (as described in the Company's news release dated September 5, 2012), to advance the work programs on its mineral projects and for general working capital purposes. With the completion of the Procon transactions, closing of the Bell Mountain acquisition is expected to occur by the end of November 2012.

At the closing of the private placements described above and as required by the Procon transactions, three incumbent directors of the Company resigned (Philip Walsh, Michael Price and Robert Elton), and the remaining directors appointed four nominee directors of Procon to the board resulting in Procon nominee directors constituting a majority of the board of directors of the Company. As a result, the board of directors of the Company is now comprised of the following persons:

Yuhang Wang (Procon nominee)

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.
