Vancouver, B.C., August 25, 2020. FALCON GOLD CORP. (FG:TSX-V), (3FA:GR), (FGLDF:OTC PINKS); (“Falcon” or “the Company“) is pleased to announce it has acquired 4,440 hectares (“ha”) of mining land 110 kilometers (“km”) northeast of Red Lake, ON in the Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt on Springpole Lake.  Falcon’s new Springpole West Property comprises 197 claims containing 217 units and extends from McNaughton Township northeast for approximately 22 km where its most northeastern cells are less than 4 km from the Springpole Gold deposit.

The claims cover 13.5 km of strike length along a gold-bearing silicified mafic volcanic – sedimentary rock contact and a major property-wide fault zone.  Historical work has indicated significant gold and silver values on surface and at depth.  In 1979, Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. intersected 19.40 g/t Au over 30 centimeters in a diamond drill hole within the deformation zone hosted in a quartz vein-stockwork system.  In addition, massive sulphide pods along the fault zone have reportedly been exploited by past operators with surface grab samples returning up to 8.38% Zn, 16 g/t Ag and 0.05 g/t Au and drilling of geophysical anomalies intersected 0.25% Cu, 2.68% Zn, and 0.05 g/t Au over 1 meter (BP Resources, 1985).

The Property is directly tied on to First Mining Gold Corp.’s (“First Mining”) Springpole Gold Deposit, which is reported as one of the largest undeveloped gold projects in Canada, and contains the same geological terrain as that world class gold deposit.  First Mining completed their preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) in November 2019 and reported an Indicated Resource of 139.1 Mt grading 1.04 g/t Au and 5.4 g/t Ag, containing 4,670,000 ounces of Au and 24,190,000 ounces of Ag as well as an Inferred Resource of 11.4 Mt averaging 0.63 g/t Au and 3.1 g/t Ag, containing 230,000 ounces of Au and 1,120,000 ounces of Ag. 

The area is accessible by floatplane, ATV trail, and winter road.  The Property is within 6 km of an all-weather gravel road and hydro-electric transmission lines are close by.

Mr. Karim Rayani, Chief Executive Officer commented, “Our new Springpole West Gold Property adds a large, strategic land package to Falcon’s portfolio in the mining friendly Red Lake gold district.  Falcon continues to add significant shareholder value by acquiring projects with demonstrated potential in proximity to larger players such Agnico Eagle Mines at Central Canada and now with Springpole West and First Mining.  With First Mining improving the local infrastructure in partnership with local First Nations communities and the Ontario Government, the Company identified the rising potential of the area that prompted us to aggressively acquire this large package of gold and silver mining claims.  Our next steps will focus on collection and digitizing of all available historical work in order to plan and initiate
Falcon’s work programs as soon as practical.”
