Veris Gold Corp. Announces Annual Maintenance Shutdown at Jerritt Canyon

VANCOUVER, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Veris Gold Corp. ("Veris" or the "Company") (TSX: VG) (OTCQB: YNGFF) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6A) advised shareholders today that the Company's Jerritt Canyon mill operations located in Elko County, Nevada will undergo its annual maintenance shut down commencing March 11, 2014. Jerritt Canyon is operated by Veris Gold USA Inc. ("Veris USA"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

The Jerritt Canyon annual maintenance shut down is being conducted in concert with training and the installation of new monitoring points in anticipation of the receipt of its new Class I Operating Permit. Veris undertakes a regular annual maintenance shutdown as a prudent normal-course-of-action to ensure that the Jerritt Canyon roasters are operating optimally throughout the remainder of the year and to minimize unplanned down-time. It is anticipated that the shutdown will last for three weeks.

During the shutdown it is expected that the Company will continue to mine from all three of its operating gold mines.

Such factors include, among others, conclusions of economic evaluations, the risk that actual results of exploration activities will be different than anticipated, that cost of labour, equipment or materials will increase more than expected, that the future price of gold will decline, that mineral resources and reserves are not as estimated, that actual costs or actual results of reclamation activities are greater than expected; that changes in operations may result in increased costs, unexpected variations in mineral resources and reserves, grade or recovery rates, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, accidents, labour disputes and other risks generally associated with mining.  See our Annual Information Form for additional information on risks, uncertainties and other related factors. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
