Eldorado Gold Vila Nova Mine Update 
VANCOUVE, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 -- Eldorado
Gold Corporation (TSX:ELD)(NYSE:EGO) ("Eldorado", the "Company" or
"We") announces that due to the damage sustained by the Anglo Ferrous
ship loading facility at Santana Port, Amapa, Brazil on March 28,
2013 it will be temporarily unable to ship iron ore from its Vila
Nova Iron Ore mine ("Vila Nova") in Northern Brazil. The Company is
presently investigating alternative interim options for the shipment
of its ore. Inevitably the Vila Nova mine's operating performance for
a period will be adversely affected due to this disruption.
