Toronto, Ontario – Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX: ATLDF) (the “Company”) today reported that the United States Forest Service has granted approval to the Company’s road maintenance plan for 2014. The plan covers improvements to Forest Service road FS207, which provides the primary access to the Company’s Atlanta Project located in Elmore County, Idaho. The maintenance will include, but not be limited to, widening the road, establishing safety berms in certain areas and installing water bars, ditches, silt fences and catch basins to minimize erosion. A realignment of the road has been approved and it will allow for a minimum of 50 feet (15 meter) inside turning radius in the curves of the road that will provide safer access for larger vehicles.
Atlanta Gold’s President and CEO Wm. Ernest Simmons said, “This maintenance agreement with the Forest Service for the FS207 road allows the Company to make improvements that will provide better and safer access to the Atlanta Project. It also allows for improved erosion controls to be implemented, which will provide us with the ability to exercise best management practices and better protect the environment.”
“This road provides important access to our Atlanta Project where we will be excavating and processing a bulk sample this summer and the improvements will provide safer access for the equipment necessary to complete the sample. The road will also serve as a fire break and a potential fire escape route for the residents of the town of Atlanta and it reflects our commitment to continuous improvement of our overall environmental and safety plans.”
