Meadow Bay Gold Completes First Hole at Its Atlanta Gold Mine Project in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2012) - Meadow Bay Gold Corporation ("Meadow Bay Gold" or the "Company") (TSX:MAY)(OTCQX:MAYGF)(FRANKFURT:20M)(WKN A1C3DN) is pleased to report it that it has completed the first hole in its 2012 drilling program at its Atlanta Gold Mine Project, Lincoln County, Nevada.

Drilling in late 2011 discovered a zone of precious metal mineralization northwest of the historic Atlanta pit that is both thicker and higher in grade than the average resource at Atlanta. This mineralization was observed in both the Atlanta shear zone and in the porphyry. The current drilling program will focus on both in-fill drilling for the widely-spaced 2011 holes, as well as step-out drilling to the north. The existing drill program was inspired by the following results from the Company's 2011 drilling effort:

Drill Hole Area Total Depth (m) From (m) To (m) Width (m) Au g/t Ag g/t
DHRC-11-07C Jasperoid Breccia NW of Pit 292.91 202.69 292.91 90.22 0.95 25.4
DHRC-11-N02 Jasperoid Breccia NW of Pit 339.85 208.84 314.02 105.18 1.99 13.0
DHRC-11-N03 Jasperoid Breccia NW of Pit 377.95 263.72 321.65 57.93 3.55 19.8
DHRC-11-N04 Jasperoid Breccia NW of Pit 385.57 329.27 350.61 21.34 2.77 9.4

Alex Khutorsky, CEO commented, "Meadow Bay Gold is pleased to have resumed drilling at its Atlanta Gold Project. The successful work completed during our 2011 drill program is guiding our current drilling effort. This is the next step toward furthering our understanding of what we have and, perhaps, making some new discoveries along the way."
