Nevada Gold Holdings Inc. Secures $3.425 Million of New Financing with a Strategic Partner in China

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Nov 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nevada Gold Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: NGHI), a mineral exploration company focused on identifying and developing large-scale gold deposits in Nevada, announced today that the Company has secured $3.425 million in equity financing through private transactions with accredited investors, the lead investor being Far East Golden Resources Investment Ltd., the Company's new strategic partner, which has extensive mining experience operating gold mines in China.

The financing will enable the Company to continue its gold exploration on its Tempo prospect, located within the north-south trending Rabbit Creek Gold Trend, a prolific Nevada gold belt containing at least 80 million known ounces of gold.

The Company has identified, permitted and bonded 13 drill sites on 3 of the 4 targets that have been identified by the Company's exploration program and is in the process of locating a drilling contractor.

"Given the robust gold price performance, we intend to help Nevada Gold finance mining operations to maximize shareholder value, if and when the drilling results in significant discovery of gold that justifies such investments," commented Charles Huang, Chairman of Far East Golden Resources.

"This successful financing demonstrates the confidence that our investors have in our Company, our exploration team and the potential of discovering multiple world-class deposits on the Tempo property," said CEO David Rector. "We are now fully funded for our Tempo exploration program. In addition, we are aggressively pursuing acquisition opportunities for additional high-potential properties."
