Allied Nevada Gold Provides Update on 2012 Drill Program at Hycroft Mine

Allied Nevada Gold has announced that it has updated the 2012 drilling program, conducted at its Hycroft mine in Nevada, for the Q1 of 2012.

The company encountered 0.98 g/t gold and 59.7 g/t silver over 56 m, 0.75 g/t gold and 45.6 g/t silver over 116 m through drill program in the Q1 of 2012 and also intersected 1.84 g/t gold and 122.4 g/t silver over 11 m from heap leach material drilling.

The 2012 drilling program initially aimed at obtaining material to help support the current metallurgical optimization work and the expansion projects. Further data were offered through the drilling results for the infill regions located in the next resource model.

Dave Flint, Allied Nevada’s VP of Exploration stated that the company successfully conducted the proposed drilling program for the Q1 of 2012 and is delighted with the results. The drill program continues to cut materials that vary from average to better than the average grade material present in the deposit.

The material collected during 2012 is being used for the current metallurgical engineering and optimization work along with the development projects. The company is using core samples to produce concentrates in huge quantities for optimization work and to supply samples for analysis at the offsite processing plants. Allied Nevada is continuously evaluating the concentrate through further process methods like leaching and fine grinding.
