Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 24, 2019) - First Mexican Gold Corp. (TSXV: FMG) ("First Mexican" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news release of November 8, 2019, the Company has issued an aggregate of an additional 11,100,000 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $555,000 (the "Offering").

Each Unit consists comprised of one common share (each, a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.075 for a period of two (2) years from the date of issuance. All securities issued under the second tranche of the Offering are subject to a four-month and one day statutory hold period. The gross proceeds from the second tranche of the Offering will be used for general working capital purposes.

Generic Capital Corporation ("Generic") has subscribed for 5,000,000 Units of the Company. A total of 5,000,000 Units, representing approximately 18.99% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares on an undiluted basis and assuming exercise of the Warrants, approximately 31.92% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company on a partially diluted basis, have been issued to Generic. Generic has signed an undertaking agreeing not to exercise any convertible securities of the Company, in whole or in part, if, after giving effect to such exercise, Generic would own that number of Common Shares of the Company which is twenty percent (20%) or greater of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company, immediately after giving effect to such exercise. Irwin Professional Corporation ("IPC") has acquired an additional 4,000,000 Units of the Company. IPC now beneficially owns and controls an aggregate of 7,000,000 Units, representing approximately 26.59% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares on an undiluted basis and assuming exercise of the Warrants, approximately 42.01% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company on a partially diluted basis. Generic and IPC have long-term views of the investment and may acquire additional Common Shares either on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell the Common Shares on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors. A copy of Generic and IPC's early warning reports will appear on the Company's profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval at www.sedar.com.

The transaction constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101") as an insider of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 4,000,000 Common Shares pursuant to the Offering. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by the insider does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.

The Company also announces that TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") has granted the Company a 30-day extension from the date hereof to its non-brokered private placement of up to 20,000,000 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000.

Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.075 for a period of two (2) years from the date of issuance.

The closing of both the first and second tranche is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
