Atlanta Gold Confirmation DrillingIntersects High Grade Gold at Atlanta Property Including 3.01 gpt Au over 10.1Metres
Toronto, Ontario -Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG: OTCQX: ATLDF) announces drill results from two holes from itsdrilling program in the Buffalo Mine zone of the Atlanta shear at its Atlantaproperty in Idaho. Assay results from the ongoing drilling program in theMonarch and East Extension areas west of the Buffalo Mine zone includedweighted average gold values of 3.01 grams per tonne (“gpt”) Au over 10.1metres, as set out in the first table below.
Thesecond table shows continuous core intervals assaying greater than 1.41 gpt Au (thesame cut-off grade used by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (“P&E”) to estimate the NI 43-101 open pit mineralresource in July 2011). “We areencouraged by these intermediate depth long intercepts. These are low cost bulkmining widths within the footwall / hanging wall contacts with minimaldilution. In addition, the top of thesemining blocks are relatively shallow, located immediately below the proposedpit bottoms at the Atlanta Project and easily accessible from short ramps. Anew option is being developed as drilling continues to expand this zone alongstrike and depth. Additional assays are pending for recently completed holes”,said Ernest Simmons, Vice President of Mining and COO of the Company.
INTERMEDIATE DEPTH CONFIRMATION DRILLING IN BUFFALO MINE ZONE
ASSAYS GREATER THAN 1.41 GPT AU
POSSIBLE MINABLE LENGTHS IN BUFFALO MINE ZONE
ASSAYS GREATER THAN 1.41 GPT AU
* True widths are estimates based on current availabledata and may be subject to change.
** Assays of less than 1.41gpt Au have notbeen reported.
*** Grades are weighted averages.
In July 2011, P&E completed a mineral resource estimateat the Company’s Atlanta Gold Project. P&E estimated an Indicated mineralresource of 686,600 gold ounces within 6.83 million tons at an average grade of0.101 opt (3.45 gpt) Au and an Inferred mineral resource of 282,400 gold ouncescontained within 1.79 million tons at an average grade of 0.158 opt (5.42 gpt)Au. Using a gold to silver price ratio of 55.6:1, the new Indicated mineralresource is 719,000 gold equivalent (“AuEq”) ounces within 6.83 million tons atan average grade of 0.106 opt (3.63 gpt) AuEq and the Inferred mineral resourceis 290,000 AuEq ounces within 1.79 million tons at an average grade of 0.163opt (5.59 gpt) AuEq. Gold cut-off grades of 0.041 opt (1.41 gpt) for open pitand 0.113 opt (2.25 gpt) for underground resources were established from metalprices, expected recoveries, and estimated operating costs (see news releasedated July 21, 2011).

Quality Control and Assurance
Drillsamples were handled and assayed in accordance with NI 43-101 standards. Assaying was done by Inspectorate AmericaCorporation of Sparks, Nevada, U.S.A. Samples were 30-gram fire assays of splitNQ-sized core (1⅞ inches in diameter). Quality control and assurance of the analytical results is maintained byinserting standards, blanks, and duplicates into the sample run, approximatelyevery twenty samples at the project site.
