Bravada Begins Core Drilling at East Manhattan in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) -Bravada Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BVG)(FRANKFURT:6BG) reported today that it has begun core drilling at its wholly owned East Manhattan low-sulfidation gold/silverproject. The program is expected to consist of five core holes, approximately 1000 metres in total, and will offset encouraging intercepts of gold in the Company's previously drilled reverse-circulation holes. The project consists of 84 claims (~680 hectares) and is one of the Company's 22 Nevada properties (~20,000 hectares) located along productive gold trends. East Manhattan is located in Nevada's Nye County at the eastern edge of the Manhattan Mining district, approximately 19km southeast of the giant low-sulfidation Round Mountain Gold mine.

The first hole at East Manhattan is an offset approximately 61 metres down dip of two significant intervals contained in hole EM08010, an estimated true thicknesses of 11.25m of 2.868g/t Au at 91.4m depth followed by 11.25m of 0.805g/t Au at 118.9m depth. Other holes are planned to offset other previously drilled mineralized intercepts by similar distances down dip and along strike. Mineralization occurs in an easterly trending vein zone more than 1000m along strike and approximately 250m wide at surface. Veins are branch-like in cross section, with the northerly veins dipping south and the southerly veins dipping north. An attractive target will be where the vein sets intersect, and where veins cut the unconformity between vein-hosting Tertiary felsic volcanic rocks and underlying metamorphosed Paleozoic sediments.

In other news, NuLegacy Gold Corporation notified Bravada that it is terminating its exploration agreement with Bravada for the HO property, located along the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold trend. NuLegacy completed three lines of CSAMT geophysics, which Bravada will evaluate in detail.
