First Metals is advancing two deposits, located within the Noranda Mining Camp towards production. The Fabie Bay deposit was developed by Mining Corporation in 1976-77 with a production ramp driven to a depth of 130 meters plus underground drifting on 6 levels. A 70,000 tonne open pit plus the underground drifting provided a 100,000 tonne bulk sample that was test milled in 1978 by Noranda Mines Limited with favorable results that would indicate the ore is amenable to conventional milling techniques with good recoveries.

The Magusi River deposit, located 1.2 kilometers to the west, has significant exploration potential beyond the significant inferred resources already outlined. (See more detailed reports including NI 43-101 compliant technical report on www.SEDAR.com ). These properties were acquired earlier in the year from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX:GMX).

The Company has recently completed its initial public offering and listing on the TSX Exchange, and currently has 30,832,555 common shares issued and outstanding.
