Latest Drilling Results Announced by FDG Mining

F.D.G. Mining has declared the outcome of five core holes on the Brazil and Dos Amigos veins that were drilled to test mineralization. Brazil vein trenches FT 211 and FT 212 leads to drill hole 12-19 capable of high grade undercut.

The trenches intercept 6.7 m grading 3.61 g/t gold and 15.17 g/t silver, which consists of 2.7 m at 8.05 g/t gold and 34.49 g/t silver.  Mineralization in Brazil vein drill holes 12-20, 12-21 and 12-22, shows stable mineralization detected in at-the surface trenches. Mineralization in the altered volcanic rock covering vein is represented by the 20 m intercept of low-grade gold and silver mineralization in 12-21. Drill hole 12-23 will effectively validate the subsequent Dos Amigos vein’s undrilled southwest extension. The Dos Amigos vein was not intercepted, despite the low to moderate grades of silver mineralization and drill hole encountered intermittent zones of strongly silicified andesite.

The results from farthest northeast drill hole 12-19 represents that the northeast and the deep regions can have gold and silver mineralization. Gold mineralization grading 2-3 g/t has been provided to the northeast of hole 12-19 eight historical trenches for 300 m more, extending the Brazil vein. Gold mineralization has been retrieved from two FDG trenches such as FT218 and FT219, which is 900 m further to the northeast. Through a recent access agreement, FDG can remain operational at the Brazil vein’s northeast extension.

The Brazil vein is based about 500 m southeast of Topacio vein and parallel to it, with almost 680,000 t of 5.2 g/t gold and 34 g/t silver of inferred resource. The extension of the Dos Amigos vein has been calculated to be around 270 m north of the Topacio vein.

Samples are submitted for re-analysis based on FDG's QA-QC procedures. Random samples will be presented to another laboratory, on a regular basis, for an external check. The analytical results presented have been reviewed by Robert Suda, P. Geo., VP of Exploration of the Company.
