eResearch Initiates Coverage on Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. With Speculative Buy Rating and One-Year/Three-Year Target Prices of $3.30/$5.90

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - An acquisition transforms Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. into a gold producer. That means cash flow for exploration and/or acquisitions of either properties or companies. Cash rich, strong institutional holdings, and an intriguing joint-venture all add to the speculative appeal of this company.

Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. is a gold producer involved in the exploration, development and operation of gold deposits. The Company has a diverse portfolio of properties and commodities.

Highlights of the report are as follows:

- Yukon-Nevada is a junior gold producer with financial resources to significantly expand production both organically and through acquisitions

- Revenue from gold production can help finance exploration and development

- Company is well-positioned for growth following June 2007 acquisition of Queenstake Resources and $72 million private placement

- Recently partnered 50:50 with a "deep-pocketed" Chinese company to fund early-stage exploration

- Significant institutional ownership

- Strong corporate governance culture adds credibility

- Challenges include the need to expand proven reserves at Jerritt Canyon in Nevada, reduce production costs, and increase market awareness
