Notes:

* Based on the technical report titled “An Updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the Pickle Crow Property, Patricia Mining Division, Northwestern Ontario, Canada” dated June 15, 2018 and available at www.sedar.com under First Mining Gold.’s SEDAR profile

* Diluted to a minimum 1.0 metre width.

* Entirely classified as an inferred mineral resource.

* The narrow-vein, selective underground component of the mineral resource has been estimated at a cut-off grade of 2.6g/t Au.

* The long-hole bulk underground (moderate-grade) component of the mineral resource has been estimated at a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au.

* The open pit (low-grade) component of the mineral resource has been estimated at a pit discard cut-off grade of approximately 0.5 g/t Au, using a preliminary Whittle pit shell to constrain the resource estimate and other assumed pit parameters.

* The mineral resource has been estimated using a gold price of US$1,300/oz.
