VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2013) - Meadow Bay Gold Corporation ("Meadow Bay Gold" or the "Company") (TSX:MAY)(OTCQX:MAYGF)(FRANKFURT:20M)(WKN A1C3DN) is pleased to announce that it has filed a technical report (the "Report") entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report on Resources, Atlanta Project, Lincoln County, Nevada" on SEDAR. The focus of the Report was to present the results of the resource determination previously announced on January 29th, 2013.
The Atlanta Project is located in eastern Nevada and encompasses the former Atlanta Mine which saw production from 1975 to 1985. Gustavson Associates LLC, prepared the Report that details the resource estimate and its underlying methodology. Gustavson Associates produced the resource estimate based on drilling conducted by the Company in 2011 as well as historical drill data. Both Gold Fields Mining and Kinross Gold had extensive drilling programs at the Atlanta Project in the 1990s. There are no material differences that required reconciliation between the Report and the earlier news release put out by the Company.
Below is a table summarizing the Atlanta resource using a 0.015 opt Au cut-off. The eAu ounces represent the equivalent ounces of gold if the silver is combined with the gold at an Au:Ag ratio of 1:53.

Robert Dinning, CEO, commented, "In addition to providing the Company with an up-to-date resource estimate, the modeling by Gustavson Associates has outlined opportunities for both upgrading and expanding the resource in the historic Atlanta Mine area. This is in addition to the untested geochemical and geophysical targets in the Western Knolls. As has been seen in numerous mining districts across Nevada, the discovery of an initial deposit is the best predictor for future exploration success."

Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold and silver; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
