FALCON COMPLETES SITE VISIT & TECHNICAL REPORT ON THE ESPERANZA GOLD PROJECT, ARGENTINA

Vancouver, B.C., March 8, 2022. FALCON GOLD CORP. (FG: TSX-V), (3FA: GR), (FGLDF: OTCQB); (“Falcon” or the “Company”) is pleased to inform a technical report has been completed on Esperanza Gold Project in La Rioja province Argentina. Dr. D. Rubiolo, QP for the project completed a site visit on December 5th 2021.

Falcon has implemented a diversification strategy by acquiring the Esperanza Gold concessions covering an aggregate area of 10,303 hectares. The concessions are road accessible, located approximately 55 kilometers south-southeast of the town of Chepes, this area contains prospective sheared quartz veins hosted in granitoid rocks of early Paleozoic age. High-grade gold mineralization was reportedly first discovered at end of 19th century at the Callanas, followed by limited mining conducted on a gold, silver, and copper zone.

In 1995, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) studied and completed; mapping, surface sampling, ground geophysical surveys, and drilling providing information on 30 different gold mineralization locations and historical mines throughout the area. JICA further drilled 900 meters of diamond drilling on the Callanas. Two of the holes returned encouraging intercepts assaying one meter at 9.11 g/t Au, 28.59 g/t Ag and 0.42 m at 24.3 g/t Au, 61.10 g/t Ag. More recently, Esperanza Resources has reported that the Callanas West zone has been followed along a northwest-southeast strike for approximately 4,000m.

Falcon Gold Corp (2018-2019) signed an initial agreement with Esperanza Resources S.A. and carried out a preliminary prospection collecting 73 samples. Results revealed high grade gold mineralization up to 50.12 g/t over 0.6m sheared-veins structures.
