First Mining Finance Corp. Key Developments

First Mining Finance Corp. Reports Initial Gold Resource Estimate for the Goldlund Project in Northwestern Ontario

First Mining Finance Corp. announced the release of an initial Resource estimate for its Goldlund Gold Project located near the town of Sioux Lookout in northwestern Ontario. The company assumed control of the Goldlund project through its amalgamation with Tamaka Gold Corporation on June 17, 2016. The Resource estimate was prepared by WSP Canada Inc. of Sudbury, Ontario and has an effective date of September 20, 2016. At a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade, the Goldlund deposit contains pit constrained Indicated Resources of 9.3 million tonnes at 1.87 grams per tonne or 560,000 ounces of gold. At a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade, the Goldlund deposit contains pit constrained Inferred Resources of 40.9 million tonnes at 1.33 grams per tonne or 1,750,000 ounces of gold. The Company expects to commence a 27,000 metre drilling campaign at Goldlund by the end of January 2017. The goal of the drilling campaign is to upgrade and expand the Mineral Resources at the Goldlund deposit. The Goldlund deposit is situated within a land package of approximately 280 square kilometres (28,000 hectares) referred to as the Goldlund Gold Project (the "Property"). The Property has a strike-length of over 50 kilometres in the Wabigoon Subprovince. Goldlund is an Archean lode-gold project located in northwestern Ontario, approximately 60 kilometres from the township of Dryden. The claims that make up the land package cover the historic Goldlund and Windward mines, which are currently owned by First Mining through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tamaka. The Goldlund deposit is currently defined by surface and underground diamond drilling, together with underground development.

Samples from the drilling program have been extracted with assay results expected to be available in early 2017. Recently, the Company's Board of Directors approved a CAD 21 million exploration and development budget for 2017, including 47,000 metres of infill and exploration drill programs to advance the Company's Canadian priority assets.
