Follow Up Drill Program Commencing on San Antonio I Concession

 Energold Mining Ltd. (EGD.CDNX) and Atna Resources Ltd. (ATN.T) announce that a drilling program on the San Antonio volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) property, in the Dominican Republic, will commence in early March. Eight attractive targets along a 4 kilometre strike length will be tested by approximately 1500 metres of diamond drilling.

A recently completed TEM geophysical survey indicated several conductors coincident with gossanous zones and anomalous soil geochemistry. Several of the holes will test IP and EM responses in the La Parcela and Copper zones. These targets may represent thicker extensions of the high grade massive sulphide mineralization intersected in previous drilling. Significant intersections from 1999 programs include:

Several holes are also planned to test coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies, in areas of the property underlain by favourable host rocks, where there has been no previous drilling.

Atna can earn a 60% interest in the San Antonio I Concession from Energold by completing US$3 million in exploration and paying Energold US$300,000 in shares over a four year period. Energold's 50% subsidiary, Kluane International Drilling Inc., will be the drill contractor.
