YUKON-NEVADA GOLD CORP. INTERSECTS ADDITIONAL STRONG GOLD
MINERALIZATION AT THE KETZA RIVER PROJECT
Vancouver, BC – August 18, 2010 – Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (Toronto Stock Exchange: YNG;
Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) is pleased to announce favorable results from its restarted and on-going
2010 drilling program at Ketza River. The Ketza River property is wholly-owned by Yukon-Nevada Gold
Corp., and it is a past gold producer located near the town of Ross River in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
The recently received assay results are from the Bluff Zone at the Ketza River Project. The Bluff Zone is an
individual mineralized zone located west of the proposed Peel open-pit resource area and east of the proposed
Lab-Calcite open-pit resource area. All drill holes referenced in this news release are diamond drill holes
completed from one drill rig between November 2009 and February 2010 and for which assays were recently
The Bluff Zone is a structurally-controlled, steeply-dipping sulfide replacement (manto) zone in limestone.
Mineralization at the Bluff Zone has been exposed in several places on the surface by trenching. In addition, a
small limestone quarry is located nearby to the Bluff Zone. Several of the previously reported 2008 drill holes
intercepted massive pyrrhotite replacement mineralization with strong gold values. Drill hole KR-08-1355
intersected 11.2 meters of 9.7 g/t Au starting at a depth of 12.1 meters whereas drill hole KR-08-1351
intercepted 4.8 meters grading 11.5 g/t Au starting at 5.6 meters as previously reported in a news release issued
on April 15 th , 2009.
Following up on the 2008 work, a series of 2010 drill holes were completed to step down dip from the earlier
intercepts. The table below lists the 2010 significant drill hole intercepts in the Bluff Zone. Highlights include drill
hole KR-10-1471 that intercepted 2.42 meters averaging 20.8 g/t Au, and drill hole KR-10-1473 that
intercepted 3.24 m averaging 12.2 g/t Au.
