Atna Announces the Passing of Wilson J. Barbour, Director



    VANCOUVER, June 20 /CNW/ - Atna Resources Ltd. (ATN:TSX) announces with
regret and sorrow, the sudden and unexpected death of Wilson J. Barbour, on
Friday, June 15th. Wil was elected to Atna's Board of Directors in May, 2003,
and served with diligence, intelligence, and integrity for more than 4 years.
He was a team player who would often take an opposing position to ensure that
every aspect of a debate or decision was thoroughly considered. Wil constantly
battled bureaucratic and regulatory obfuscation in order to achieve clarity
and transparency in all aspects of the Company's disclosure and activity. His
"holy grail" was to present clear and understandable reporting to financial
and non-financial shareholders alike.

    The Atna Board and staff will miss Wil's wise counsel, as well as his
good friendship.
