About Apollo Gold

Apollo Gold is a gold mining company with operating mines in Nevada and
Montana and an advanced stage development project, Black Fox, along the
productive Destor-Porcupine Fault east of the Timmins Gold Camp in
Ontario, Canada. Apollo has also recently started the Huizopa
exploration project in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. Gold
production in 2004 from the Company's three currently operating mines
totaled 106,000 ounces of gold production with by-products of silver,
lead and zinc. The production targets for 2005 range from 122,000 to
151,000 ounces of gold production as well as by-product metal as in
2004. The Black Fox project could be in production in early 2007 if the
feasibility study is successful and necessary financing is obtained.
Production at the Black Fox project envisions an open pit as well as an
underground mine and milling facility.
