First Gold Intersects 15.25 G/T Au Over 4 Meters and 27.03 G/T Au Over 2 Meters in Hole 332A on Croinor Project

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - First Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EFG) ("First Gold") is pleased to announce more results from its diamond drill program on the Croinor mining lease located 75 km from Val d'Or in Quebec. Please see previously issued press release or web page for details of the joint-venture agreements with X-Ore Resources Inc.

In total, 5,684 meters were drilled between the months of June to August. First Gold has now received assays for eight of the twelve holes of the program. Two of those holes were abandoned before they were completed due to technical difficulties.

Holes 331 and 332A are located 200 meters to the west of hole no. 334 (previous press release, 10.9 meters of 5.19 g/t). Results listed in the table below appear to demonstrate that the gold mineralization is improving towards the west as two significant stockwork zones were identified on the most westerly section drilled to date by First Gold (15.25 g/t Au over 4 meters from 158 to 162 m and 27.03 g/t Au over 2 meter from 258 to 260 m) (see drill hole locations on First Gold's website - more detailed maps will be available in a few weeks).

Despite the fact that many assay results are pending, the company intends to drill a minimum of four additional holes this year on the mining lease. This additional drilling will test a 200 m portion of the mineralized structure directly to the west of hole no. 332A. This program on the mining lease should start before the end of September once the 1,500 meter drill program on the adjacent Lac Bug showing (other joint-venture with X-Ore Resources Inc.) is completed.

The objective of the company is to increase the + 200,000 oz gold resource defined down to the 200 meter level (see 43-101 Report on Sedar).

Preliminary indications are that true widths of the mineralized intervals are roughly equivalent to fifty percent of core lengths. Assays have not been cut.

All the samples were analyzed using by fire assays with gravity finish at Laboratoire Expert Inc. located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. First Gold has implemented a QAQC program which includes the use of standards, blanks and duplicates samples.
