First Mining Gold Corp announced the restart of field operations at its 100%-owned Springpole Gold Project and its 100%-owned Goldlund Gold Project, both located in northwestern Ontario in Canada. First Mining has implemented a COVID-19 risk mitigation policy incorporating recommendations set by the Government of Ontario, to provide health and safety guidance and recommendations to its employees and contractors. All employees and contactors at Springpole and Goldlund will be subject to heightened health and safety standards in accordance with precautions put in place by the Government of Ontario and the Company.

At Springpole, field personnel will be remobilized back to site in the first week of June to resume the combined geotechnical-hydrogeological drill program that began in February 2020 to support the Pre-Feasibility Study and the Environmental Impact Statement. Metallurgical testwork is also underway at the SGS laboratory in Lakefield, Ontario, utilizing sample material collected in the 2020 drilling program.

At Goldlund, the Company has recommenced its 2020 drill program, and will be completing a further 1,500 metres of drilling targeting the northeast extensions of Zones 2 and 3 at the Goldlund Main Zone. Sampling and assaying are also scheduled to be completed on eight holes that were drilled prior to the suspension of the drill program due to COVID-19, as samples from these holes had not been cut and shipped to the assay laboratory due to the temporary demobilization of operations at site. Approximately 7,300 metres of drilling has now been completed on the Goldlund Main Zone during the 2019 - 2020 drill program.

First Mining also announced the start of drilling at the Pickle Crow Gold Project. Auteco Minerals Ltd, First Mining's joint venture partner on Pickle Crow, has commenced a 5,000 metre, maiden diamond drill program targeting shallow, high-grade targets within the top 300 metres that lie outside of historically defined resource areas. Auteco is advancing Pickle Crow and may earn up to an 80% interest in the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary PC Gold Inc., which owns the Project

First Mining Gold Corp. is a Canadian-focused gold exploration and development company advancing a large resource base of 7.4 million ounces of gold in the Measured and Indicated categories and 3.8 million ounces of gold in the Inferred category. First Mining's primary focus is the development and permitting of its Springpole Gold Project and the advanced exploration of its Goldlund Gold Project, both located in northwestern Ontario. Springpole is one of the largest undeveloped gold assets in Canada, with permitting and a Pre-Feasibility Study underway. Goldlund is an advanced exploration stage asset where drilling in 2020 is planned to define both the extension of the existing resource area and to better define the regional scale potential. First Mining's eastern Canadian property portfolio also includes Cameron, Pickle Crow, Hope Brook, Duparquet, Duquesne, and Pitt.
