About Allied Nevada Gold Corp.

Allied Nevada has a large land position in Nevada, providing a strong platform from which to pursue growth opportunities. Allied Nevada has more than 250 square miles of exploration and development properties, located in some of the most important gold mining trends in the State of Nevada.

Allied Nevada is a newly-formed independent company engaged in the evaluation, acquisition, exploration and advancement of gold exploration and potential development projects in the state of Nevada.
