Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. reports second quarter results

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 14 /CNW/ - Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (Toronto Stock
Exchange: YNG; Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) has released results for the
three and six months ended June 30, 2009. All amounts in this news release are
in United States dollars, unless otherwise stated.
    For the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, the Company reported a
net loss of $7.7 million and $12.9 million, respectively, due to the limited
number of operating days during the period and operational issues with the
mill operator in place during that time. Although the Company resumed
operations on March 25, 2009 with the approval of the Nevada Division of
Environmental Protection (NDEP), the Company shutdown again at the end of May
as delays in the construction and delivery of key components for the mercury
emissions control system resulted in missing the May 30 deadline set with the
NDEP for having the system installed. The Company is continuing to work with
the NDEP and the State Attorney General to receive approval to return to full
    In the second quarter at Ketza River in the Yukon, the Company focused on
compiling data from the 2008 year and completing core sampling. Many new drill
targets are being identified in preparation for future exploration and
additional geophysical work is being carried out in the area.
    Details of the Company's financial results are described in the unaudited
consolidated financial statements, and management's discussion and analysis,
which will be available on the Company's website, www.yukon-nevadagold.com and
on SEDAR, www.sedar.com.
