First Gold Intersects by Drilling Mineralized Zone on New Showings and Obtains 1.72% Li2O Over 15.1 Metres at Rose

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2010) - First Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EFG) (FRANKFURT:F12) (OTCQX:FGEXF) is pleased to report the most recent drill results for the Lac Pivert/Rose project. The table below shows the results for holes LR-10-124 to LR-10-139, drilled to test the extension of the zones to the east. All the holes intersected mineralization and extended the mineralized zone at Rose eastward.

Drilling continues, with the drill now working on the Hydro, Pivert and JR showings. To date, three holes have been drilled on the Hydro showing and twelve on the JR showing. Drilling has returned numerous mineralized intersections. The details and assay results for these intersections will be disclosed over the coming weeks as they are received.

InnovExplo was hired in June to prepare a 43-101 report on the Pivert/Rose property, as well as a resource estimate for the project.

The 43-101 property report can be found on Sedar, and the resource estimate is expected before the end of the year. The work is progressing well to date, and no delays are expected. The Company will order a prefeasibility study as soon as it receives the resource estimate.

A map showing the location of the holes drilled on the Pivert/Rose Lithium Project can be found in the Projects section of the Company's website, at www.firstgoldexploration.com.

All the samples were sent for analysis in sealed containers to the Chemex laboratory in Val-d'Or by employees of the Company. Chemex is the laboratory used for analysis of all samples from programs on the Lac Pivert/Rose property. The samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. The samples are crushed to 70% minus 2 mm, then separated and pulverized to 85% passing 75 um. All samples are analyzed using ICP-MS, with full analysis for 47 elements.
