Atlanta Gold Seeks Extension of Time to Pay Penalty

TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) (the 
"Company") announces that the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Atlanta Gold 
Corporation ("AGC") has requested from the U.S. District Court for the State 
of Idaho a six-month extension of the time to pay the US$2,000,000 
Court-imposed penalty pertaining to AGC's non-compliance with the United 
States Federal Water Pollution Control Act ("Clean Water Act") with respect to 
treatment of water discharge at the historic 900 level adit (the "Adit") 
located near Atlanta, in Elmore County, Idaho. The Court's Decision of July 
19, 2012 had ordered AGC to pay the penalty by October 31, 2012. 
The Court's Decision, as amended, had also ordered AGC to achieve compliance 
with the terms of the NPDES Permit regulated under the Clean Water Act by 
December 15, 2012. AGC has acted promptly and made substantial efforts to 
install upgrades to the pilot water treatment facility ("PWTF") which are 
expected to be fully operational by November 15, 2012. The new and proprietary 
passive water treatment system is expected to reduce the maximum arsenic level 
to less than 10 micrograms per liter (10 µ/L) or parts per billion, thus 
enabling compliance with the Clean Water Act. 
The Company is presently evaluating a number of financing alternatives in 
order to raise the funds necessary to pay the US$2 million penalty. 
About the Company Atlanta Gold Inc. holds through its 100% owned subsidiary, 
Atlanta Gold Corporation, leases, options or ownership interests in its 
Atlanta properties which comprise approximately 2,159 acres (8.74 square 
kilometers) located 90 air kilometers east of Boise, in Elmore County, Idaho. 
A long history of mining makes Atlanta very suitable for development of new 
mining projects. The Company is focused on advancing its core asset, 
Atlanta, towards mine development and production.
