Testing Underway Following Installation of Passive Filtration System at the Pilot Water Treatment Facility in Atlanta, Idaho

November 13, 2012

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2012 /CNW/ – Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) today announced that following the completion last week of the
installation of the Passive Filtration System at the Pilot Water
Treatment Facility (PWTF) on-site at the Atlanta property in Elmore
County, Idaho, testing of the filtration system has begun by the
contracted engineering firm, CENTRA Consulting Inc. While initial
testing has been quite positive, a 45-day period is required to fully
test the system during which twice weekly water samples will be taken
and sent for lab analysis. This should be completed by mid-December, at
which time CENTRA will certify the efficacy of the system.

The PWTF filtration plant utilizes a proprietary technology that is a
relatively low cost, energy efficient, safe solution to water treatment
issues common to many others in the State of Idaho. The Company will
license a second party to make this system available to others that
have similar arsenic issues.

“The identification and installation of this facility represents a
significant step forward for the Atlanta Gold Project,” commented
President and CEO of Atlanta Gold Inc., Ernie Simmons. ”We now believe
that the issue of water pollution has been resolved. We continue to
progressively improve our environmental record, as well as the
economics of the Atlanta Project. The cooperation of the responsible
agencies, the work of employees, Contractors and Consultants, who all
worked to successfully complete this innovative approach is very much
appreciated.”
