Atna Terminates Option Agreement at Jarbidge, Nevada

    VANCOUVER, March 11 /CNW/ - Atna Resources Ltd. (ATN: TSX) announces that
it has terminated the principal option agreement in the Jarbidge District,
Elko County, Nevada. Following compilation and review of results from all the
mapping, geochemistry, and drilling carried out over the past four years, it
was determined that there was insufficient encouragement for Atna to justify
further exploration expenditures.
    Atna will continue its effort to acquire other exploration and
development opportunities in the western US, while Atna's partners on the
Pinson Mine project (Pinson Mining Company (Barrick Gold)) and at the Clover
project (Yamana Gold) are expected to continue development and exploration of
those respective gold properties.
