Firstgold Corp. Pours Gold From the Relief Canyon Mine

CAMERON PARK, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2009) - Firstgold Corp. (TSX:FGD)(OTCBB:FGOC) announced today that it has poured the first gold dore from its Relief Canyon gold mine.

"We received notice today that the carbon from the Relief Canyon mine has been processed, and a dore bar containing 13.62 ounces of gold and 42 ounces of silver has been poured. While the quantity is not indicative of regular run rates, achieving this milestone officially makes Firstgold a gold producing company with a revenue source. Now it is only a matter of time for the grades to build and production to reach its full capacity at Relief Canyon," commented Company Founder/COO Scott Dockter.

"Over the next year, I believe you will see remarkable progress in Firstgold Corp.," stated Steve Akerfeldt, Firstgold CEO.

In addition to the announcement of the first gold/silver dore pour, Firstgold announces that Ed Baer will not become a board member as previously announced. Upon further discussion between the parties, potential conflicts were identified that make this appointment inadvisable. The Board wishes to thank Mr. Baer for considering the appointment.

Over the last 24 months Firstgold has spent $16 million developing a processing facility at Relief Canyon, located outside Lovelock Nevada, on the site of the previously producing Pegasus Gold Mine. Firstgold currently leases over 10,000 acres of prime exploration property in Nevada. Additional information about Firstgold Corp. can be found by visiting its web site at www.firstgoldcorp.com.
