Fire River Gold Corp (TSXV: FAU) (OTCQX: FVGCF) (FSE: FWR) ("FAU" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results obtained from additional holes drilled during its 2011, 28,000 metre drill program at the Nixon Fork Gold Mine, situated in Alaska's Tintina Gold Belt. The Company has received and confirmed assay results from drill holes N11U-033 to N11U-034 at the 3300 Zone. A complete list of the all the 2011 intercepts are provided in Table 1. The widths of the intercepts are approximate to the true width of the mineralized intercept. The latest holes target the down dip extension of the 3300 zone.
The Company is presently operating two drills continuously in the Crystal Mine. They are primarily focussed on detailing mineralized zones scheduled for the first six months of mining, beginning in June 2011. This includes filling in gaps in mineralization and extending open zones along strike and dip.
