The focus of this update concerns the latter half of 2012. The Company achieved a number of important milestones, including:

    activities through 2012. 
--  General and Administrative costs were reduced by 25%. 

Resource Estimate Tripled:

--  An updated NI 43-101 report completed in November showed a 298% increase
    to previous resource estimates at Topacio. More than 340,000 ounces of
    gold at an average grade of 3.9g/t within 150m of the surface were
    identified in the Inferred category.(i) 
--  A resource estimate of more than 124,000 ounces of gold amenable to open
    cut mining in the inferred category was identified at Topacio.(ii) 
--  Multiple targets for future exploration programs were identified through
    trenching and drilling. 
--  A further 1329 samples from 20 new trenches are in process. 
--  An additional 14 veins were identified which are not included in the
    updated resource estimate. 

Permits and Property Agreements:

--  An option to acquire 100% of the Topacio concession was extended by 41
    months to April 30, 2016. 
--  Municipal exploitation permits were granted for Topacio. 
--  An Agreement to acquire 100% of the San Pedro property, located 1 km
    from the B2Gold Jabili deposit, was completed pending TSX approval. 
--  Exploration permits on 100% owned El Santo were received, paving the way
    for aggressive trenching, soil sampling and drill programs. 

On the basis of achieving these milestones the Company intends to build on
the present momentum and make further significant gains in 2013, including:

Resource Development:

--  An intention to raise the open pittable resource estimate at Topacio to
    250,000 ounces or more. 
--  An intention to raise the global resource at Topacio to 500,000 ounces
    or more. 
--  An intention to increase confidence in the global resource at Topacio by
    bringing a significant number of ounces into the Indicated and Measured
    Resource categories. 

Permitting:

--  The process for Governmental exploitation permits at Topacio will
    continue. The Company anticipates the granting of the production permit
    at Topacio in Q3 2013. 

Corporate Social Responsibility:

--  Completed 8km's of all-weather road at Topacio 
--  Supported the commissioning of a New School on the property 

Financing of the Company:

--  The Company expects to announce and complete a financing in Q1 2013. 

"Through a challenging year for our industry as a whole, FDG has restructured its management, wrestled control of its finances and simultaneously tripled our resource calculations, positioning the Company as one of the most exciting prospects in the Latin American gold exploration sector. We are determined to build on these gains with aggressive drill and trenching programs designed to add long term shareholder value.

We believe that in Topacio we have an exceptional opportunity. We have identified an open pit resource as well as grades available at depth. We believe we can quickly and efficiently add to both. The addition of 14 new veins could further increase our resources significantly as the current estimate is now contained in less than 10% of the 25 known veins. In the medium term our present geological data suggests that Topacio has the potential to become a Company building production scenario.

I intend for 2013 to be the year when FDG starts to realize these opportunities and to show our shareholders, present and future what value the Company can bring."

On Behalf of the Board of Directors

David St. Clair Dunn, P.Geo., President and CEO
