2.15 Meters Averaging 24.45 g/t Au in Drilling at Ketza River, Yukon and Flow Through Private Placement

February 22, 2011

VANCOUVER, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ – Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (TSX: YNG) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) is pleased to announce favorable results from its 2010 drilling program
at Ketza River.  The Ketza River property is wholly-owned by
Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp., and is a past gold producer located near the
town of Ross River in the Yukon Territory, Canada.

The recently received assay results are from manto-style (limestone
replacement) targets from the Peel and Penguin zones drilled in 2010.
All drill holes referenced in this news release are diamond drill holes
completed by one drill rig between June 13, 2010 and September 8, 2010.

Peel Zone

Six drill holes were completed west of the 2008 Peel Zone manto
resource. The results are presented in Table 1. One drill hole,
KR-10-1522, was also drilled within the existing resource. See the Peel
Zone plan map figure on the YNG website here: http://www.yukon-nevadagold.com/i/pdf/KetzaPeelMap2010.pdf.

Penguin Zone

The 2010 Penguin Zone drilling tested several magnetic and VLF anomalies
in the vicinity of the proposed Penguin pit. The results are shown in
Table 2 below. The best intercept was from KR-10-1550, which cut 2.38
meters grading 8.09 g/t Au. See the Penguin Target plan map figure on
the YNG website here: http://www.yukon-nevadagold.com/i/pdf/KetzaPenguinMap2010.pdf.

None of the recent drill intercepts listed above were included in the
data used for the NI 43-101 resource estimate released on April 14,
2008 and therefore could lead to an increase in the resource at the
Ketza River project. A complete table of updated results for the
2009-2010 drilling program can be found on our website: http://www.yukon-nevadagold.com/i/pdf/KetzaDrillResults09_10.pdf. Included in this table are significant assay results that were
recently received from geotechnical and hydrogeology drill holes
completed earlier this summer.

All of the assays were analyzed at ALS Laboratory Group in North
Vancouver. The documentation of the quality control and quality
assurance protocols are described in the NI-43-101 document described
above and can be found on our website here:
