Geophysical Survey on Focus Claims in Mexico Further Highlights Possible Copper Gold Porphyry System

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - Focus Gold Corporation (OTCBB: FGLD), has completed interpretation of the results of a ground-based magnetic survey carried out on the southern portion of the Focus Claims in Nayarit, Mexico. The location of the survey area, which covered 900 hectares, in relation to areas of phyllic alteration is shown on the accompanying map.

Reduced-to-pole magnetic intensity is shown on the accompanying magnetic map.

In general, the magnetic response is higher in the eastern part of the survey area with lower readings to the west. These magnetic lows may be related to hydrothermal alteration and destruction of magnetite in the underlying rocks. Areas of low magnetic response on the Focus claims may also be related to buried porphyry copper gold mineralization. When combined with ongoing surface geological mapping and geochemical sampling, the magnetic lows will help to guide a planned drilling program.

Grant White, CEO of Focus Gold, commented, "We are encouraged by the continuing assay and mapping work we are completing in Nayarit, Mexico in advance of a drill program. The result of the geophysical survey on a small part of our Focus claims is consistent with the geologic mapping we have done in that area and further support the potential of a copper gold porphyry system on our Mexican properties."
