Atlanta Gold Shallow Confirmation Drilling Intersects High Grade Gold at Atlanta Property Including 25.920 Gpt Au over 4.6 Metres and 4.512 Gpt Au over 13.7 Metres

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) announces drill results from its 2011 shallow confirmation drilling program in the East Extension and Monarch areas on its Atlanta property in Idaho, with the highest gold value of 25.920 grams per tonne (gpt) Au over 4.5 metres confirming the potential for higher grade gold mineralization both near the surface and at depth. Assay results of 3.0 gpt Au or higher included in holes D11074E24 and D11081E26 located in the East Extension area, hole D11015W27 in the Monarch area, and hole D11181W39 in the Buffalo Mine Zone, are provided in the table below. The Monarch Shaft was the primary historic development shaft and is located approximately in the center of the mineralized Atlanta Shear Zone, with the Buffalo Mine Shaft located 213 metres to the west and the East Extension Area located 549 metres to the east of the Monarch Shaft.

The higher grade intersections reported above are located in the Atlanta Shear Zone and in splays to the main shear.

The 2011 exploration program commenced in June 2011. More than 12,200 metres (40,000 feet) of up to 18,300 metres (60,000 feet) of drilling has been completed to date and assays are currently pending for a number of drill holes. The program is focused on the Atlanta Shear Zone which has a surface expression that is 3,475 metres (11,400 feet) long, 9 to 37 metres (30 to 120 feet) wide and extends from surface to a known vertical depth of 610 metres (2,000 feet) with numerous splays branching off to the northwest and southeast of the main Shear.

Risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to vary include, but are not limited to, the speculative nature of mineral exploration, development and mining (including uncertainties with respect to the interpretation of geology, continuity, size and grade estimates and recoverability of mineral reserves and resources); insufficient funding or delays in raising additional financing on satisfactory terms; operational and technical difficulties which could increase operating and/or capital costs; risks and hazards associated with the business of mineral exploration, development and mining, including environmental hazards, changes in laws or regulations and the risk of obtaining necessary licenses and permits; fluctuations in resource prices and in currency exchange rates; changes in general economic conditions and in the financial markets; as well as other risks and uncertainties which are more fully described in the Company's annual and quarterly Management's Discussion and Analysis and in other Company filings with securities and regulatory authorities which are available at www.sedar.com.
