TORONTO--()--Atlanta Gold Inc. (the "Company") (TSXV: ATG; OTC Pink: ATLDF) announces that its subsidiary Atlanta Gold Corporation (“AGC”) has received notice that Idaho Conservation League and the Northwest Environmental Defense Center have submitted pleadings to reopen a previously closed case in the U.S. District Court in Idaho in which AGC was the defendant. These parties filed a Motion to Hold Defendant in Civil Contempt, and Impose Additional Penalties and Enforcement Remedies which alleges that AGC violated its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (“NPDES”) permit, and that AGC did not make all payments when due to the U.S. Treasury for an earlier imposed fine.

AGC owns property in Atlanta, Idaho, that contains an abandoned mine. AGC installed a Pilot Water Treatment Facility at the mine site to treat water flowing out of the 900 level mine Adit. Since the installation of the Pilot Water Treatment Facility and subsequent improvements to that facility, AGC has consistently removed over 99% of the naturally occurring arsenic and iron from water that flows from the Adit. AGC has never mined at the Atlanta site, but has been treating the water that flows from the Adit in various capacities since 1994, with recent results of less than 10 ug/L of arsenic and 1,000 ug/L of iron, most often at non-detect levels, in compliance with the NPDES permit’s requirements.

On occasions that the test levels have exceeded the effluent limits prescribed in the NPDES permit, such as during Spring runoff, or brief malfunctions in the flow or filters within the Pilot Water Treatment Facility, these were the result of AGC’s inability to control the flow of water. AGC has actively been in consultation with agencies in an effort to resolve the water treatment issues in Atlanta, Idaho.

While AGC is confident that this matter can be amicably resolved, there can be no assurance that AGC will not be faced with liability nor can it presently be determined what penalties may be imposed by the Court should the claim be upheld.

About the Company

Atlanta Gold Inc. holds through its 100% owned subsidiary, Atlanta Gold Corporation (“AGC”), leases, options or ownership interests in its Atlanta properties which comprise approximately 2,159 acres (8.74 square kilometres) located 90 air kilometers east of Boise, in Elmore County, Idaho. A long history of mining makes Atlanta very suitable for development of new mining projects. The Company is focused on advancing its core asset, Atlanta, towards mine development and production.

The Company is also focused on advancing its exploration and processing methods on the Neal Property, which is located approximately 15 miles from Boise, Idaho and comprises approximately 192 acres (0.78 square kilometres). The Neal Property’s geology is similar to that of the Atlanta Project and it provides the Company with all-season access to further refine the processing equipment and procedures. AGC holds a five-year lease on the Neal Property and has staked an additional seven contiguous claims on public land that was open to mineral entry.

Atlanta Gold Corporation reaches agreement on water treatment system with HydroClean Resources LP https://atgoldinc.com/index.php/news/2016-news/29-atlanta-gold-corporation-reaches-agreement-on-water-treatment-system-with-hydroclean-resources-lp https://atgoldinc.com/index.php/news/2016-news/29-atlanta-gold-corporation-reaches-agreement-on-water-treatment-system-with-hydroclean-resources-lp Toronto, Ontario January 19, 2016 – Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTC Pink: ATLDF) announcesthat Atlanta Gold Corporation (“AGC”), its wholly-owned subsidiary, has agreed to transfer its rights in certain water treatment filter systems and methods (the “Technology”) to HydroClean Resources LP (“HydroClean”), and AGC will hold a 45% limited partnership interest in HydroClean.

The Technology was developed by AGC and by Wm. Ernest Simmons, the President and CEO and a director of the Company, following the 2012 Court order that mandated that AGC implement measures to obtain compliance with the effluent standards of the United States Federal Water Pollution Control Act in respect of contaminated groundwater flowing from a historic mine adit located near AGC’s Atlanta Project.  The Technology, together with certain additional elements developed by Mr. Simmons, is presently the subject of an international patent application submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in November 2015.

HydroClean is a limited partnership formed under the Idaho Uniform Limited Partnership Act.  In addition to AGC, the initial limited partners will be G2T Technologies Inc. (“G2T”), a private Alberta corporation, as to a 45% interest and Mr. Simmons as to a 10% interest.  James Gray, the Chairman of the Board of the Company, owns one-third of G2T. G2T will transfer to HydroClean an existing patent for a method and apparatus to recover water from air so as to provide clean water and G2T has also agreed to pay all costs associated with obtaining a patent on the Technology.  Mr. Simmons, as co-inventor, will hold a 10% carried interest in HydroClean until total partner contributions to HydroClean exceed US$4 million.

The Board of Directors of the Company formed a committee of independent directors, comprised of Warren Holmes, Allan Folk and Eric Berentsen, to consider the transaction with HydroClean. Messrs. Gray and Simmons, as interested parties in the transaction, declared their interest and did not participate in the Committee’s deliberations or vote on the matter.  The Committee was of the view that with appropriate funding and expertise, the Technology once patented, could be marketable and potentially provide a significant source of revenue to AGC. However, due to the severe financial constraints facing AGC and the Company, the Company lacked the funding and expertise necessary to appropriately pursue the opportunity offered by the Technology. The proposed transaction with HydroClean would permit the patent of the Technology to be sought at no cost to AGC and would allow AGC to participate in future revenues arising from the Technology and from the patent contributed by G2T, through AGC’s interest in HydroClean. The Committee unanimously concluded that the transaction was designed to improve the Company’s financial position and was in the best interests of the Company.

The TSX Venture Exchange has approved the transfer of the Technology to HydroClean.
