Allied Nevada Announces 2012 Annual Meeting Date16:01 EST Monday, February 06, 2012RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2012) - Allied Nevada Gold Corp. ("Allied Nevada" or the "Company") (TSX:ANV)(NYSE Amex:ANV) announces that it will hold its 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") on May 3, 2012, in Winnemucca, Nevada. The time and address of the location of the Annual Meeting will be as set forth in Allied Nevada's annual proxy statement for the Annual Meeting. The record date for determining the holders of the Company's common stock entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting is March 20, 2012. Because the date of the Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the date of the prior annual meeting, the deadline for submission of any stockholder proposal to be included in Allied Nevada's proxy statement and proxy card or to be presented at the Annual Meeting, including proposals to nominate a person for election to the Board of Directors, is February 16, 2012. Any stockholder proposal submitted for the Annual Meeting must relate to matters appropriate for stockholder action and be consistent with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (including Rule 14a-8 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) relating to stockholders' proposals and must comply with the requirements of the Company's By-laws. Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking InformationThis press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and the equivalent under Canadian securities laws), that are intended to be covered by the safe harbor created by such sections. Statements that are not historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by, among other things, the use of forward-looking language, such as the words "plan," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "project," "may," "will," "would," "could," "should," "seeks," or "scheduled to," or other similar words, or the negative of these terms or other variations of these terms or comparable language, or by discussion of strategy or intentions. Forward-looking statements address activities, events or developments that Allied Nevada expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, and are based on current expectations and assumptions. Although Allied Nevada management believes that its expectations are based on reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that these expectations will prove correct. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, among others, risks that Allied Nevada's exploration and property advancement efforts will not be successful; risks relating to fluctuations in the price of gold and silver; the inherently hazardous nature of mining-related activities; uncertainties concerning reserve and resource estimates; uncertainties relating to obtaining approvals and permits from governmental regulatory authorities; and availability and timing of capital for financing the Company's exploration and development activities, including the uncertainty of being able to raise capital on favorable terms or at all; as well as those factors discussed in Allied Nevada's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") including Allied Nevada's latest Annual Report on Form 10-K/A and its other SEC filings (and Canadian filings) including, without limitation, its latest Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (which may be secured from us, either directly or from our website at www.alliednevada.com or at the SEC website www.sec.gov). The Company does not intend to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.FOR FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT: Scott CaldwellAllied Nevada Gold Corp.President & CEO(775) 358-4455ORTracey ThomAllied Nevada Gold Corp.Vice President, Investor Relations(775) 789-0119www.alliednevada.com
