Nevado Resources Corporation: Update Regarding the Fermont Transaction

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2011) - NEVADO RESOURCES CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:VDO)(FRANKFURT:NSV) (the "Corporation" or "Nevado") – Nevado announces that it has finalised the acquisition of the 928 mining claims in the Fermont region and that it is examining the development potential of its properties.

Concurrently, Nevado announces that it is coming under pressure from certain shareholders to abandon its rights in regards to these newly acquired properties in Fermont. In an attempt to intimidate Nevado, unreasonable and vexatious judicial proceedings have been undertaken in order to annul the transaction, which remains most advantageous for the Corporation.

The previous president of Nevado, Mr Guy Girard, is one of the main claimants regarding the rights in the Fermont property. Mr. Girard alleges that he lost out on a business opportunity to the benefit of Nevado. He criticizes the acquisition by Nevado of the 928 mining claims and alleges that he is currently a director of the Corporation and a hidden owner of the Fermont claims, all this despite the fact that he was an officer of the Corporation at the moment of the transaction and that he has left his position as such as of January 4th, 2011.

In light of these allegations, the senior management wishes to assure the shareholders that it will take all the necessary measures in order to defend its rights and protect shareholder's assets. In fact, the Corporation has initiated an independent investigation of the internal and external service contracts pertaining to exploration work as well as their administration.
