Atna Completes Drilling at Beowawe Project, Nevada



    VANCOUVER, June 6 /CNW/ - Atna Resources, Ltd (TSX:ATN) completed 6 drill
holes totalling 6,205 feet at its Beowawe project, Eureka and Lander Counties,
Nevada. The drilling tested potential for gold mineralization in epithermal,
volcanic-hosted quartz veins and associated geophysical anomalies beneath
alluvial covered areas in the Northern Nevada Rift. Strong silicification and
argillic to propylitic alteration were encountered in all drill holes. Several
holes contained narrow (less than 20-foot wide) zones of quartz-chalcedony
veining with associated pyrite. The following table shows the results of the
program:
