Update on Test-Processing Bulk Sample from Atlanta Gold Project

August 1, 2012

TORONTO, Aug. 1, 2012 /CNW/ – (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Knife River Corporation
(“KRC”) has completed transporting and crushing 107 of the 145 tons of
bulk sample material from the Atlanta Shear Zone at the Company’s
Atlanta gold project in Idaho.  The crushed sample was then delivered
to KRC’s pad for processing.

The original 145-ton bulk sample was excavated from four existing
surface trenches.  The trenches are approximately 150 feet (45.7
meters) apart and are open cuts across the Main Shear Zone east of the
Monarch Shaft above the 6800-foot elevation.

“This 107-ton bulk sample has been crushed to minus 1/8-inch material,
which is representative of mine feed. This next stage of test
processing, the bench scale test run, will assist the Company in
determining whether this beneficiation method for the resources is an
option for on-site processing. There is also significant exploration
potential to increase the Atlanta project’s gold inventory both along
strike, at depth and within other mineralized structures,” said Wm.
Ernest Simmons, President and CEO of the Company.

The proposed system of metallurgical recovery from the test processing
plant has been successfully applied and achieved high gold recovery
rates at a similar deposit within a 50-mile (80-kilometer) radius of
the Atlanta property. The pilot scale model will be used to test the
recovery of precious metals from the bulk sample and the Company
expects to reduce the 107 tons of feed material to less than 1,000
pounds of gold and silver concentrate. No chemicals will be added
because the gravity processing system only uses water.

Provided there are no delays during final processing of the bulk sample,
assay results will be reported by news release in August 2012.
