Western Sierra Mining Corp., (OTC:WSRA) confirmed today (9/24/2012) that it is in the process of re-opening the Azurite mine in the Bradshaw Mountains of Arizona. <br /> The Azurite, formally know as the "Lower Davis Dunkirk" has historically produced gold, silver and copper in varying amounts since the late 1800's. Significant exploration work was expanded in 1980 and Western Sierra acquired the property early in the 3rd quarter of 2012. <br /> <br /> The Company will first provide for access improvements reworking existing roads while simultaneously driving new roads intersecting the main vein structures in preparation for surface mining. The Company will also clear the historical mill site of brush and debris. <br /> <br /> The initial work has begun and should be completed during the first week in October, 2012 <br /> <br /> Note: This PR does not mention GDSM nor does it claim GDSM as a JV partner on the Azurite.
