Fire River Gold Corp. Resumes Full Operations At Nixon Fork Mine
News Release Dec 14 2011

December 14, 2011 Vancouver, Canada - Fire River Gold Corp. [TSX.V: FAU| OTCQX: FVGCF| FSE: FWR] (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has resumed full operation of the Nixon Fork Mine. The inclement weather that shut down operations on 10 December 2011 has improved such that it was possible to resume diesel supply and crew change flights. A total of 19,539 gallons of diesel was delivered to site over the last two days using Hercules and DC-6 aircraft, increasing the on-site storage to 34,600 gallons. Mining operations resumed on the nightshift of 13 December and the mill will re-start on the dayshift of 14 December.

It is the standard operating practice to keep the diesel tanks full, which have a total capacity of over 80,000 gallons, and the resupply flights will continue until this is accomplished.

We wish to thank our charter company: Alaska Air Transit, our bulk supply company: Lynden Air Cargo, and our fuel supplier: Everts Air Cargo for the care that they provided to our operation during this anomalous stretch of numerous flight cancellations; to our management for providing strong leadership through this period, and to our staff for their patience with the crew change delays.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,


"Richard Goodwin"

Richard Goodwin
President and COO
