VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 25, 2011) - First Lithium Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MCI)(PINK SHEETS:FLNTF)(FRANKFURT:MHN) announces the completion of their drill program at Mollie River. First Lithium returned to the property to assess the area beneath hole MR-10-10 for a wider zone of gold and associated copper mineralization. The hole was re-entered and deepened to 293 m and the 47 samples collected from this new drill core were assayed for gold, copper and nickel. Results are summarized in table form below.
