Focus Gold Corp. Sells Mine Dumps on Mexican Huicicila Project to Private Investor for $1.0 Million USD

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2011) - Focus Gold Corp. (or "Focus") (OTCQB: FGLD) (OTCBB: FGLD) is pleased to announce an agreement to sell the mine dumps on the Cila concession blocks of Focus Gold's Mexican Huicicila project. The waste sites are from previous underground mining operations within the company's concessions and contain lower grade gold and silver. The local private investor will provide Focus $1.0 million USD upon closing which is expected prior to the New Year.

Grant White, CEO of Focus, commented: "Project Manager David Cadwell has been leading our ground team in Mexico by advancing the Huicicila gold-copper project, and the cash proceeds from this sale will allow us to continue work on this enormous property. Since we are exploring a very large gold-copper porphyry system we would not have been looking to process these waste piles ourselves for many years anyways." Mr. White went on to comment about Focus' planned exploration program for 2012: "Ongoing work will continue to define drill targets which will ultimately be tested during a drill program planned for Q2 2012."
