First Mining Gold Corp. (FF.V) has released initial fire assay results from a regional exploration drilling program, currently under way at the company's wholly owned Goldlund gold property in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

Drilling highlights:

  • Hole MI-18-001 intersected 107.6 metres of 0.33 gram per tonne gold (g/t Au) including 11.0 m of 1.17 g/t Au;
  • Hole MI-18-002 intersected 142.1 m of 1.90 g/t Au including 108.0 m of 2.44 g/t Au, and 31.0 m of 4.44 g/t Au and including 7.0 m of 14.67 g/t Au;
  • Hole MI-18-003 intersected 48.0 m of 1.07 g/t Au including 15.0 m of 1.41 g/t Au;
  • Hole MI-18-004 intersected 23.8 m of 0.54 g/t Au including 5.80 m of 1.40 g/t Au;
  • Hole MI-18-005 intersected 10.0 m of 0.43 g/t Au and 1.0 m of 4.18 g/t Au;
  • Hole MI-18-006 intersected 22.0 m of 0.69 g/t Au including 6.40 m of 2.09 g/t Au and 0.38 m of 21.66 g/t Au.


Jeff Swinoga, president and chief executive officer of First Mining, stated: "This discovery of significant gold mineralization over such lengths and depths at the Miller prospect is a striking success on its own. However, of much greater significance to the bigger picture at Goldlund, is that today's results confirm the presence of Goldlund-style mineralization approximately 10 kilometres from the current resource area along strike of this 50-kilometre-long property and indicate the near-term exploration potential to expand the Goldlund resource. Of the eight drill holes, seven had occurrences of visible gold."

This is the company's first drill program to test the regional potential of the Goldlund property to host significant gold mineralization similar to that demonstrated within the Goldlund resource area. Today's results are from the first six drill holes of a planned 13-hole diamond drill program at the Miller and Eaglelund prospect areas.
