First Point Minerals Intersects 316 metres of 0.1% Nickel-In-Alloy at Klow

Vancouver, October 4, 2012 – First Point Minerals Corp. (FPX-TSX.V) (“First Point” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has intersected a zone of nickel-iron alloy mineralization carrying encouraging grades in a first round of wide-spaced drilling at the 100%-owned Klow property in central British Columbia.

Five holes totalling 1,579 metres tested a 530-metre-long portion of the main target area where surface rock sampling had returned nickel-in-alloy values averaging 0.06% and ranging as high as 0.13% in individual samples.

First Point Minerals Completes Widely-Spaced Exploration Drill Program at Wale

Vancouver, October 2, 2012 — First Point Minerals Corp. (FPX-TSX.V) (“First Point” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has completed a first pass of widely-spaced exploration drilling at the 100%-owned Wale nickel alloy property in northern British Columbia, in addition to collecting a 5-tonne surface bulk-sample for metallurgical testing and market studies.

The helicopter-supported drill program tested the 3.6-kilometre-long Eagle Target with 10 core holes totalling 2,764 metres. The objective of this initial drill campaign at Wale is to identify the potential for large zones of nickel-in-alloy mineralization on the property. The holes were drilled from six pads spaced 470 to 1,200 metres apart. The location of some drill holes on ridge lines and talus covered slopes were driven by local, rugged topography, which reaches a maximum elevation of 2,000 metres. A drill hole location map can be viewed at www.firstpointminerals.com.
