SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2011) - Falcon Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FG) is pleased to announce the signing of an Option Agreement ("Agreement") whereby Falcon can acquire a 100% interest in the Fenton Twp. Property from Joseph Bardswich ("Bardswich"). The Fenton Property is located in Fenton Township, within the Porcupine Mining Division, Ontario, and consists of 2 unpatented claims (32 claim units). The Fenton Twp. Property is accessible by road, and is situated near the town of Kapuskasing on the Trans- Canada Highway (Highway 11).

Falcon must incur sufficient exploration expenditures to maintain the property in good standing with the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry. The cost of maintaining this property in good standing would be $12,800. per year.

The Ontario Geological Survey, (OGS) carried out a soil sampling program in the area during the 1990s that identified the property as possibly hosting VMS type mineralization. Limited work by BRC Development Corp. in 2000 / 2001 identified Copper mineralization on the property but did not do a recommended follow up program. Falcon Gold has acquired the property as an early stage exploration project with the potential to host a VMS type Copper/Gold deposit. A planned exploration program will commence on the property in the near future.
