VANCOUVER, Aug. 19, 2013 /CNW/ – First Mexican Gold Corp. (the `Company` or `FMG`) (TSX-V: FMG, Frankfurt: 21M)

First Mexican Gold Corp., on a best-efforts basis, proposes a non-brokered private placement of up to $200,000 through the sale of 5,714,286 million units at $0.035 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant being exercisable at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of two years. The financing is subject to regulatory approval.

Proceeds from the private placement will be dedicated to property payments as well as to fund multiple property tours as well as property taxes to maintain present property holdings.

The company has signed multiple Confidentiality Agreements with qualified well-funded potential joint venture partners and is currently touring these interested parties on the property in an effort to select the best option to advance the Guadalupe property to the next level of resource development. In addition the company is still pursuing all other options for advancement of the property.

In addition to these drill results, trenching confirms that mineralization starts at surface on both occurrences and is believe to hold the potential for a multi million ounce (Au Eq) resource.

Currently Corex Gold Corporation (CGE-TSX-V) joint venture partner Vale S.A. continues to drill deep holes in an effort to confirm the underlying phorphyry system, which would likely create a significant area play. Corex recently announced commencement of a 4000m drill program on its contiguous Santana project, to be carried out by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vale. The program comprises a series of deep holes to test the porphyry copper-gold target previously discovered by drilling and geophysics.

Jim Voisin comments: “These are challenging times in the junior resource sector and the preservation of key property components is essential to the project.”
