First Gold Continues to Extend Mineralized Zones of Rare Metal Property

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) - First Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EFG)(FRANKFURT:F12) is pleased to report that the spodumine / lepidolite bearing structures have been traced and drilled constantly since hole LR-10-02. First Gold is now on Hole LR-10-73 and keeps intercepting the mineralized pegmatite dikes now up to 20 meters of thickness (twice the old average thickness from previous holes).

A map of proposed holes up to LR-10-95 is available on the company website.

First Gold is also expecting results from holes LR-10-43 to LR-10-59 shortly. Holes LR-10-60 to LR-10-73 will be sent to the lab within the next two weeks.

"Having these intercepts on this very wide area (see map) and having the mineralized dikes horizontal near the surface is simply amazing and an open-pit mine could be considered," comments Eric Leboeuf, president of First Gold.
