VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 02, 2015) - First Point Minerals Corp. (TSX: FPX)("First Point" or the "Company") announced today that Martin Turenne will succeed Jim Gilbert as the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Gilbert has stepped down in order to focus on other opportunities, but will continue to serve as a director of the Company.

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Jim for his contributions to the Company and for agreeing to continue to serve as a member of the Board of Directors. We wish him well in all of his future endeavours," said Peter M.D. Bradshaw, Chairman.
