Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. Drills 30.80 m Grading 10.53 g/t Au at Jerritt Canyon, Nev
Vancouver, BC -- July 24, 2012 -- Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (TSX: YNG; OTC:YNGFF) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) is pleased to update results from its 2011 surface drilling program at the Starvation Canyon Project ("Starvation") which is located at its wholly-owned Jerritt Canyon gold operation in Nevada, USA. Jerritt Canyon is operated by Queenstake Resources USA, Inc., ("Queenstake") a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. ("YNG" or the "Company").
• TJ-353 intersected 30.80 meters at 10.53 g/t gold
• TJ-356 intersected 27.60 meters at 8.37 g/t gold
• TJ-357 intersected 17.99 meters at 9.81 g/t gold
This press release updates the 2011 surface drilling program specific to the Starvation project and completed as part of the pre-development due diligence process. The 2011 Starvation drill program consisted of 12 oriented diamond core drill holes totaling 5,251ft. (1,602m) and 12 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes totaling 7,490ft. (2,284m). The RC drill hole assay results were previously published in a YNG press release on January 31, 2012.
The diamond drill program had two objectives:
1. collect oriented drill core for laboratory test-work to enable an assessment of the rock mechanics of the deposit to help with mine engineering design (3 drill holes);
2. target additional ore body drill penetrations to enable conversion of inferred resources (identified in the previously published Jerritt Canyon December 31, 2011 National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report dated April 27, 2012) to the indicated and/or measured category (9 drill holes).
Three oriented diamond drill holes were targeted to assess the geotechnical characteristics of the proposed surface portal and underground decline that will provide access to the deposit resources. These drill holes (TJ-359, TJ-362, and TJ-363) were sampled and assayed and did not return any significant assay results.
Of the nine drill holes drilled within the resource boundary for resource conversion and/or geotechnical information, seven drill holes contained significant mineralization. The significant assay results received as of July 16, 2012 are listed in Table 1 below and are also listed in a complete compilation table on the YNG website at
A surface plan map showing the drill hole locations and the drill hole assay highlights can be found on the Company website here

Golder & Associates are the engineering firm that was contracted to conduct the geotechnical data collection and oversee laboratory test work for this drill program. A final report detailing their findings and recommendations is forth coming.
Assaying of all samples from the 2011 surface drill program reported in this news release were conducted by ALS Laboratory Group in Reno, Nevada using standard fire assay techniques. Assay intercepts are reported as drilled. True widths have not yet been calculated; given the geometry of the mineralization at Jerritt Canyon, the concept of true width is not always meaningful before delineation drilling has been completed.

The information in this news release was compiled and reviewed by William Hofer B.Sc., Chief Geologist, Jerritt Canyon Mine. The information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by the Company's Vice President of Exploration, Todd Johnson, M.Sc. (Qualified Person per the requirements of NI 43-101).
