Pershing Gold Initiates Pre-Feasibility Level Studies and Reports on Progress At Relief Canyon

Pershing Gold Corporation provides an update on the progress to production at its Relief Canyon Mine in Pershing County, Nevada. Pershing Gold is currently in the final stages of approving its 2016 Drilling Program. To that end, the Company is completing geophysics to define additional targets. Pershing Gold has recently contracted Zonge International Inc. of Reno, Nevada to complete gravity as well as induced polarization and resistivity surveys at the project. This work is designed to test the geophysical signature over the mineralization zones at the mine. The surveys will be extended into areas to the west, southwest and south of the mine to aid in drill targeting. The Company is planning a program designed to add ounces to the 2015 infill program, which was designed to upgrade the deposit and develop a better understanding of the geology as the company plans for the restart of Relief Canyon. Pershing Gold has retained Golder Associates of Reno, Nevada to initiate pre-feasibility level geotechnical studies for the Relief Canyon Mine. These studies will outline pit slope design criteria and will define a follow-up pit slope geotechnical program, which are essential steps in Relief Canyon's path to production. These studies will document site conditions, provide a geotechnical model, and provide specific recommendations for a pre-feasibility level program to develop pit slope design. This work will set the stage for a Pre-Feasibility Study of the Relief Canyon project, expected in the fourth quarter of this year. This Pre-Feasibility Study will formalize the work currently being done to move Relief Canyon into production, and is a key step to allow the Company to define reserves at Relief Canyon under Canadian National Instrument 43-101. The Pre-Feasibility Study is expected to provide a higher degree of confidence in the Relief Canyon project and will not negatively affect the Company's timeline to production.
