First Mexican Increases Land Package to 11,506 Hectares

First Mexican Gold Corp: Vancouver, British Columbia, TSX-V: FMG

First Mexican Gold Corp (FMG-TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has added to its property package at its Guadalupe Property in Sonora State, Mexico.  The Company’s current property package of 7,507 hectares is contiguous to Corex Gold Corp (CGE-TSX-V) Santana Property where consistently good drilling results have been demonstrated to date.

The acquisition of the Vianney, San Martin and Panda properties continues the land package expansion strategy of First Mexican management.  The property package comprises 3999 hectares that are contiguous to present land holdings and is considered very prospective for gold and silver mineralization. 

The larger Panda property, 3750 hectares, is located just east of the recently acquired Hilda 31, 32 and Santa Martha claims and contains numerous historic workings.  Systematic sampling of this area is planned to commence in the coming months.

The Vianney/San Martin claims, 249 hectares, will in the future be referred to as the Kristen zone.  This Kristen zone lies north of and is contiguous to Hilda 38.  Random soil and rock chip sampling has been conducted to date in the vicinity of visual outcrops which contributed to the decision to purchase this property.  Evidence of historic mining in the Kristen zone is best exhibited from a surface excavation of approximately 150 metres on strike to a depth of 50 metres.

The Company has now identified a potential trend that extends from the Kristen zone and terminates on the Katelyn zone on Hilda 37 some 2 kilometres away.  This trend has been sampled and found to be gold/silver bearing with similar rock types identified and the Company plans an early Spring IP program to assist in developing a drilling plan.

The properties were acquired for consideration of US$186,000 and 1,600,000 shares of First Mexican Gold Corp. plus a 2.5 % royalty of which 1.5% can be purchased for US$1 million.  This property has been added to the existing Option agreement with International Millennium Mining Corp (IMI-TSX-V).
SJ Geophysics Ltd. of Delta, B.C., is currently on-site continuing with the extensive 3D IP survey totaling 45 kilometres of lines which includes the survey being extended towards the Bailey zone.  This 3D IP program is designed to enhance the drill targeting over multiple identified target rich areas and provide follow-up data to assist in the next phase of drilling within our continually expanding property package.

First Mexican Gold Corp is an active explorer for precious metals in Mexico and holds an option to acquire 80% interest in the Guadalupe property package from (MIMSA) a wholly owned subsidiary of International Millennium Mining Corp (IMI-TSX-V).  The Company now controls a total of 11,506 hectares in this high potential precious metals exploration area.
