Toronto, Ontario – Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) announces that, under the terms previously announced in its news release dated April 20, 2011, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Atlanta Gold Corporation has completed the purchase of a 5.58-acre property in Boise, Idaho. The Company issued 2,066,829 common shares in part payment of the purchase price and such shares are subject to a four month statutory hold period.

“Acquired on favourable terms, this new property has excellent highway and rail access and will be developed as a corporate office, warehouse, training centre, truck depot, marshaling yard, service centre and the turnaround for goods going to and from the Atlanta Mine,” said Bill Baird, President and CEO of the Company.

“Management has taken steps to prepare for production at Atlanta, as opportunities present themselves. This approach has provided significant savings on substantial purchases of buildings and equipment, which have been completed well ahead of schedule. Advanced preparations for the construction and operational phases are drawing near as we continue to exceed our annual resource growth targets through exploration, and continue to make significant steps towards our goal to build and open the Atlanta Mine for gold and silver production by 2014.”
