FireFox Gold Corp. ("FireFox" or the "Company") reports that recent additions to its exploration tenement holdings have boosted its total holdings related to gold exploration in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland (CLGB) to approximately 800 km 2 . Since the middle of 2020, FireFox has added almost 500 km 2 of exploration reservations and permits to its tenure in the CLGB (See Figure 1: https:bit.ly3cdL3pm ).

Important new reservations were granted in late January and early March including Mantovuoma ("Manto"), Paartoselkä ("Paarto"), Kuussatta and Nunara. These most recent additions to the portfolio are significant because of their alignment with major gold-hosting structures and/or their proximity to the Kittilä Mine. The Company has also cemented its control of a huge block of prospective Kittilä Suite volcanic rocks north from Rupert's Area One discovery around its existing Sarvi and Lehto permit applications.

Carl Löfberg, Chief Executive Officer of FireFox Gold Corp., commented: "The new gold rush in Lapland has resulted in a very tight land situation. The FireFox team has again proven itself to be one of the most nimble local experts in Finnish gold exploration by expanding our portfolio in key target areas. These huge new exploration reservations enable us to expand our strategy by considering strategic partnerships and joint ventures on some properties. We continue to aggressively explore our flagship projects and are looking forward to our core drilling program in April."

FireFox has now added substantive new projects that have seen millions of dollars of historical exploration by GTK, Outokumpu, and others. These additions expand upon the Company's flagship assets at Jeesiö, Sarvi, and Mustajärvi. Many of the key targets at these flagship projects are associated with the Sirkka Shear Zone (SSZ) and its associated splays, whereas most of the additional projects are hosted in the Kittilä Suite volcanic rocks, which host Agnico's Kittilä Mine. The high-quality Finnish technical databases and drill core archives contain extensive information on most of the new projects, including significant gold showings in historic till sampling and core drilling.  The table below summarizes the most recent additions to FireFox's portfolio.

Technical Highlights of Selected New Properties

Most impressive in the new map of FireFox's CLGB tenements is the large corridor of exploration reservations in between Rupert's Area One discovery and Agnico's Kittilä Mine in the north. In addition to the Company's original Sarvi and Lehto options, the FireFox team has secured 100% control of exploration rights spanning much of the Kittila Suite volcanics and numerous prospective D 3 structures.  The new exploration reservations in that area include Kolho, Lehto2, Keulakkopäänrinne ("Keula") and the recently added Kuussatta and Paarto.

The huge Kolho Property is particularly important as it occupies a structural corridor dominated by major thrust faults and cross structures, similar to the host structures at Rupert's Ikkari Discovery and the other Area One Targets.  Kolho itself covers almost 150 km 2 and has seen only minor historical exploration, despite FireFox geologists noting significant alteration during its 2020 reconnaissance traverses.

The significant Manto Property approaches from the southwest to within 10km of the Kittilä Mine, and it has seen significant historic exploration and drilling. The Geological Survey of Finland ("GTK") reports a drill-delineated gold occurrence along the SSZ at Loukinen (included near the southwest limits of the reservation) having an average grade of 0.5 g/t Au. The GTK databases indicates there are a few thousand meters of shallow core drilling on several prospects, including intercepts of more than 1.0 g/t Au. There is also gold in till samples up to 11 g/t associated with a geophysical anomaly in the northwest portion of the property.

The Nunara Property also hosts exciting geology and interesting historical gold anomalies. Much of the property straddles the SSZ and includes the zone where the SSZ intersects with the Venetjärvi Thrust Fault (VTF). That major structural intersection passes through an area of mapped meta-komatiites, ultramafic volcanic rocks known to host significant gold in other orogenic gold systems. In fact, the GTK describes a noteworthy occurrence of listwanite, an unusual carbonate-altered ultramafic rock that is sometimes associated with orogenic gold deposits.  Given the numerous gold and micro-nugget anomalies in the GTK data from this area, FireFox is planning ground geophysics and prospecting along interpreted crossing D 3 structures at Nunara.

FireFox cautions that these data should not be relied upon. While the Company believes the data was collected professionally and with industry-standard methods, much of the information is reported from historical workers prior to the advent of Canadian National Instrument 43-101. Further, FireFox acknowledges that proximity or similar geology to an active or past-producing mine does not indicate that mineralization will occur on FireFox's property, and if mineralization does occur, that it will occur in sufficient quantity or grade that would result in an economic extraction scenario. These data and facts were simply used as elements of the prospectivity analysis of these properties.

Top Stories This Week: Powell Gets Fed Nomination, Using Gold in a Market Correction

Top Stories This Week: Powell Gets Fed Nomination, Using Gold in a Market Correction youtu.be

We're back after a break last week with quite a bit to cover in the gold space.

After running up past the US$1,860 per ounce mark midway through November, the yellow metal has taken a tumble. At the time of this writing on Friday (November 26) afternoon, it was sitting just under US$1,790.

Gold's losses this week have been attributed to elements like a stronger US dollar and better Treasury yields, although Jerome Powell's US Federal Reserve chair renomination has pulled other factors into play — some market watchers believe he may move to taper and raise interest rates faster than anticipated.
