SISM Research Issues Ardent Mines Update Report

Company Commences Gold Hills Project Exploration

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2012) - Zurich, Switzerland-based SISM Research recently issued a company research update on Ardent Mines Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: ADNT) (OTCQB: ADNT) written by senior analyst Ernest Schlotter, dated July 6, 2012. The report includes analyst Schlotter's company stock target valuation and rating, as well as cites Ardent's progress toward building "the next gold mine in Brazil."

The full report contains important disclosures, disclaimers and analyst qualification information. Investrend and SISM Research both advise investors to exercise a reasonable degree of due diligence before trading in the equities of any public company, including carefully reading entire analyst reports and report disclosures, and then only in conjunction with advice from a registered financial advisor or broker. Investrend and SISM Research both further advise that any analyst rating, recommendation, target valuation, price target or opinion should be considered merely a portion of an investor's total investigative process.

According to analyst Schlotter's SISM Research report: "Ardent acquired two gold properties in Brazil during 2011. Subsequent to the acquisitions, ADNT hired SRK Consulting Inc. to prepare a NI 43-101 compliant technical report on exploration for the Gold Hills project, which properties are surrounded by Yamana Gold, a major gold exploration and production company."

"Using SRK's parameters," the report continues, "we calculated the mineral resource potential for Gold Hills to be in excess of 900,000 ounces of gold. Based on Canaccord's in-situ gold database, the market is valuing gold held by non-producers today at about $69.40 per ounce. Based on current in-situ gold price, the Gold Hills property can be valued at $64.6 million."

"Ardent has assembled an exploration and development team to expedite the exploration process. The 3,000 meter exploratory drilling program is expected to start this July/August. Ardent is backed by Swiss venture capital firm Capital Research Group AG. The firm provides loan's to the exploration program and is committed to convert debts to equity at $3.65 per share," Schlotter's report also notes.

"Ardent's management has a clear vision to unlock the 900,000+ ounces of gold opportunity at Gold Hills," Schlotter's conclusion asserts, "which has a gross value at today's market price of US$1.5 billion."
