First Gold: Blue Note Mobilizes Drill Rig at Croinor Gold Project

First Gold Exploration Inc. and Blue Note Mining Inc. are pleased to announce that a drill rig has been mobilized at the Croinor gold project located near Val-d’Or, Quebec to begin the first phase of a planned 20,600 meter drill campaign aimed at increasing the mineral resources laterally and at depth.

The first phase of drilling will comprise 7,700 meters. Drill targets include step-out testing of gold mineralization identified in previous drilling within and further east of the planned development. Last summer’s seven hole drill program intersected significant gold grades and widths located in close proximity to planned development, clearly demonstrating the potential to expand the reserves. Values returned from the seven holes included 11.81 g/t Au over 7.5 meters, 10.50 g/t Au over 6.7 meters, 29.3 g/t Au over 5.7 meters with values as high as 78.15 g/t Au over 1 meter (see news releases of October 18 and November 11, 2010).

Other targets to be followed-up from the previous campaign includes those identified by the Hole-to-hole 3D induced polarization (IP) survey east of the mine area, and testing of the host diorite sill to the west of the reserve area where an IP target was identified at the margin of the survey and beyond the limit of previous drilling.

InnovExplo Inc. has been contracted to assist with the program planning, field supervision, core logging and sampling and data compilation and analysis. Forages La Virole has been awarded a contract to complete a minimum of 7,700 meters of drilling expandable to 20,600 meters as the program develops.
