Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. intersects 6.4 meters of 40.1 g/t gold at Jerritt Canyon, Nevada



    VANCOUVER, July 14 /CNW/ - Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (Toronto Stock
Exchange: YNG; Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) has received very exciting
results from underground drilling in the SSX - Steer Mine complex at Jerritt
Canyon.
    Underground drilling with two diamond drills (core) and a reverse
circulation drill (RC) have continued to define additional resources in the
SSX - Steer Complex. Since the last report (news release dated April 28, 2008)
55 resource conversion holes (including both RC and Core) have been completed
totaling 19,004 feet (5,792 meters).
    During this period the majority of the drilling has been on the Steer
side of the mine complex. Several inferred resource areas were targeted with a
diamond drill to more fully understand their nature and to establish mineral
continuity. In most cases the mineralization is associated with low angled
structures and has a tabular appearance within the lower portion of unit 3 of
the Hanson Creek Formation. The more significant intercepts from this program
include: SR-174 with 17.5 feet (5.3 meters) of 0.321 ounces of gold per ton
(opt) or 11.01 grams of gold per tonne (gpt), SR-190 with 21 feet (6.4 meters)
of 1.169 opt (40.08 gpt), SR-183 with 17.5 feet (5.3 meters) of 0.604 opt
(20.71 gpt), and SR-184 with 18 feet (5.5 meters) of 0.651 opt (22.32 gpt).
These intercepts are either within inferred resource shape as of December 2007
or completely outside of previously defined mineralization. These highlights
are shown in the table below and their locations on the accompanying map which
