First Gold Increases Its Land Holdings

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2010) - First Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EFG) (FRANKFURT:F12) announce that it increased its land position by 265 km2 before and during the staking rush around its Lac Pivert/Rose property.

A detailed map showing the new land position will soon be posted on First Gold's website at under Pivert/Rose Lithium Project in the Projects section.

The website will be continuously updated with information on drill core, structures, maps and photos, as well as results.

The Lac Pivert/Rose project shows a number of mineralogical similarities with the Tanco Mine in Manitoba, belonging to Cabot Corporation (CBT-NYSE). The mineralized zones at the Tanco Mine are encased in pegmatite dikes, and the minerals found in the pegmatites are lithium, tantalum, cesium and rubidium, just like the Lac Pivert/Rose project.

"We staked all the land we were interested in before the rush," said Eric Leboeuf, President of First Gold. "This area will definitely turn into a mining camp for rare metals exploration in the coming years."

"We have also received the analysis results for three other holes; they are now being compiled and will be released very shortly," he added.
