Bravada Reports Encouraging In-fill Holes at Wind Mountain Project, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2011) - Bravada Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BVA)(FRANKFURT:BRT) ("the Company") is pleased to report assays from five new reverse-circulation holes, all drilled within the existing resource in order to test areas given low or no value due to a lack of previous drilling. Hole WM11-063 is particularly encouraging, having intersected 54.9 metres from surface averaging 0.456g/t Au and 18.0g/t Ag (0.712g/t Au-eq @ 70Ag:1Au), with the uppermost 27.4m averaging 0.600 g/t Au and 21.0 g/t Ag (0.901g/t Au-eq).

Bravada has now drilled 50 holes for a total of 4108.5 metres, completing this phase of drilling. Metallurgical, geological, and archaeological studies will continue over the next few months. Assays for 13 additional holes are still pending. An updated resource and Preliminary Economic Assessment are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2012.

President Joe Kizis commented, "We have completed the minimum drilling program necessary to accomplish our goals for this phase. Those goals were to discover additional shallow oxide mineralization, to test for extensions of mineralization adjacent to the open pit modelled during our previous PEA, and to test portions of the existing resource that were not given significant grades due to a lack of drilling. Our success in this program combined with increased precious metal prices indicates that we will see a significant increase in our resource and a much improved PEA."

The program was successful in discovering shallow oxide mineralization at the South End, the North Hill, and the South Wind Pit exploration targets (see accompanying map). Results for the North Breeze Pit exploration target are pending. New mineralization was discovered within the existing resource area adjacent to the south-eastern and southern margins of the Wind Pit and internal to the existing resource. Results of in-fill drilling within the Breeze portion of the existing resource are pending.

True thicknesses are estimated to be 70-90% in bedding replacement; however, geometry uncertain adjacent to high-angle faults.
A ratio of 70Ag:1Au is used to reflect expected lower recoveries of Ag relative to Au, although detailed metallurgy has not been completed.
