    The 2007 plan includes an aggressive exploration program at the Atlanta
Gold property, which will unveil the potential of numerous targets identified
by historic mining activities. Certain areas of the property were last mined
during the 1800's and early 1900's, when gold and silver prices were much
lower than today. Historic miners left behind mineralized zones which were
considered low-grade at low metal prices, but are economic today. Atlanta Gold
intends to re-evaluate these resources using modern exploration methods, with
the objective of expanding ore reserves.
    The Company has engaged Vector Engineering, Inc. to complete a NI 43-101
compliant technical report on the Atlanta Gold property based on prevailing
gold and silver prices. Upon completion, the results of this report will be
provided in a future news release.
