Allied Nevada Reports Fourth Quarter Operational Progress; Quarter to
Date Record Ore Tons Placed 
RENO, NEVADA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Allied Nevada Gold Corp.
("Allied Nevada", "we", "us", "our" or the "Company") (TSX:ANV)(NYSE
Amex:ANV)(NYSE MKT:ANV) reports on fourth quarter operational
developments to date at Hycroft prior to speaking at an industry
conference on November 28, 2012. Mining rates have continued to
exceed design expectations. As previously reported, in October we
placed 4.8 million tons of ore containing approximately 30,000
recoverable ounces of gold and mined at an average strip ratio of
0.45:1. Through November 26th, we have placed 4.5 million tons of ore
containing an estimated 29,500 ounces of recoverable gold and mined
at an average strip ratio of 0.30:1. The average waste to ore ratio
in the fourth quarter to date of 0.39:1 has been well below the life
of mine average, as expected. Solution stacking continues to improve
solution grades with a 23% increase in current solution grades being
processed compared with the beginning of October. For the fourth
quarter, through November 26th, approximately 30,000 ounces of gold
and approximately 175,000 ounces of silver have been or are available
to be sold. 
Significant progress has been made on our expansion plans including,
the foundation work for the crushing system, ground preparation for
the north leach pad and new 20,000 gallon per minute Merrill-Crowe
plant. The final major components of the gyratory crusher have begun
arriving on site, ahead of schedule. Since the beginning of November,
five new haul trucks have been placed into operation and two more are
expected to be in operation by the end of the month.
