Atlanta Gold Inc (TSXV: ATG) - Feb 2014

  1. 1. TSX Venture Exchange: ATG February 2014 Heading Towards Production Corporate Presentation
  2. 2. Forward Looking Statement  This presentation includes “forward-looking information” and “forward looking statements”(“forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of applicable securities laws. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements included herein are with respect to resource estimates and exploration targets and the potential for the discovery of additional gold deposits; the initiation and outcome of test-mining and processing and the ability to generate cash therefrom; the securing of requisite production permits and the completion of the matters identified under “Timelines”and the respective timing thereof; and the approval of the Idaho Court to the payment plan for the Clean Water Act penalty. Such are based on assumptions, estimates, opinions and analysis made by management in light of its experience, current conditions and its expectations of future developments as well as other factors which it believes to be reasonable and relevant. These assumptions include the accuracy of historical records, the accuracy of the Company’s resource estimates and the geological, metallurgical and price assumptions on which they are based, the availability of adequate financing on a timely basis, and the ability to achieve operating cost estimates and to complete outstanding environmental litigation. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to, the speculative nature of mineral exploration, development and mining (including uncertainties with respect to the interpretation of geology, continuity, size and grade estimates and the recoverability of mineral reserves and resources); the Company’s limited financial resources and the delay or inability to obtain additional financing on satisfactory terms; the delay or inability to resolve the environmental litigation on satisfactory terms and to comply with the terms thereof; operational and technical difficulties which could increase development and operating costs; risks associated with the business of mineral exploration, development and mining, including the ability to obtain requisite permits and licenses, environmental, health and safety hazards, fluctuations in resource prices and currency exchange rates and changes in government regulations; changes in general economic and financial market conditions; as well as other risks and uncertainties identified in the Company’s filings available at Should any of the risks or uncertainties materialize or should any of the assumptions prove to be incorrect, then actual results could vary materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements and you should not place undue reliance on such statements.  The mineral resource estimates included herein were prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities regulatory authorities which differ significantly from those of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC applies different standards in order to classify mineralization as a reserve and does not recognize the terms “measured, indicated and inferred resources” and you should not assume that all or any part of the mineral deposits in these categories constitute or will ever be converted into reserves. Inferred resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and economic feasibility and it cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will be upgraded to a higher category.

Preliminary test results of the new System, including twice-weekly water sampling and independent lab analysis, have been positive, indicating removal of more than 99.9% of the arsenic and more than 99% of the iron.  Atlanta Highway District approved construction of a private access road subject to comment from the USFS. This “firebreak” road will follow historic routing and cross public lands to the main shear zone of the Atlanta Mine’s private property. It will also provide a firebreak to protect the forested north-facing slope of the Atlanta Mine land holdings. TSX Venture: ATG 13February 2014
