Yukon-Nevada Gold Inks Deal with Newmont Mining to Purchase Gold Bearing Ore

Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (Toronto Stock Exchange: YNG; Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) announced that it has entered into an ore purchase agreement with Newmont Mining Corporation (TSX:NMC).

YNG will accept delivery of approximately 2,000 tons of gold bearing ore per day from several of Newmont's mines in Nevada. Ore deliveries started on Saturday, 30th of October 2010.

The ore purchase transaction is part of a steady increase in mill throughput the Company is targeting and will provide the ability to achieve and maintain its minimum 150,000 ounces per year of gold production.  This is the first milestone toward increased sustainable gold production.  The Company has been steadily passing all of its independent stack tests for mercury and other emissions and has recently passed the 100 tons per hour ore throughput for each roaster circuit. The target is to eventually achieve an ability to process 6,000 tons per day through the roaster circuit.

In the meantime the Company is preparing to re-open the SSX-Steer underground mine complex , which is scheduled to contribute up to 1,200 tons per day by end of 2011.  In addition, the Smith mine is already contributing 1,000 tons per day. Together with stock piled ore already on the property, the Company is targeting a throughput of 4,000 tons per day from the foregoing ore as it builds other sources to supply feed to the plant.

These achievements will ensure the Company continues on its path of a return to profitability and will be able to sustain this into the coming year.
