NEVADO Reports the Results of its Annual Shareholders' Meeting07:00 EDT Tuesday, June 19, 2012MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 19, 2012) -NEVADO RESOURCES CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:VDO)(FRANKFURT:NSV) ("NEVADO" or the "Company") is pleased to report on the results of its annual and special meeting of shareholders held on June 18, 2012, in Montreal, Quebec. At the meeting, the shareholders of the Company voted in favour of all the resolutions set out in the management proxy circular, including re-election of the Company's Board of directors, consisting of Michael Curtis, André Bergeron, Marcel Bergeron, Rick Bonner, Philippe Frère and Louis Péloquin.Michael Curtis, President and Chief Executive Officer of NEVADO, also reviewed the Company's many achievements of the past year at the meeting, which include: Intensive exploration, with $7.3 million spent on NEVADO's properties; A 22,000-metre drilling program on the La Blache property, which outlined an inferred mineral resource of 101.7 million tonnes grading 0.33% V2O5, 18% TiO2and 59.7% Fe2O3(or 41.8% FeT), at a cutoff grade of 5.1% TiO2 equivalent; Phase 1 (preliminary) and Phase 2 (mini-plant) metallurgical testing on the La Blache ore, which in both cases resulted in the recovery of high-purity vanadium, titanium and iron; Discovery of significant graphite potential at the Fermont project (Fermont claims block), located near Focus Graphite's Knife Lake deposit; and A geophysical survey and prospecting program at the Fermont project, which generated promising iron results (Fire Lake North and South claims blocks). Mr. Curtis noted that: "We made major progress over the past year. We outlined a world-class resource at the La Blache project, which has encouraged us to move ahead with project development with a view to putting the deposit into production. As we have already stated, we hope to start a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) in the third quarter and do pilot plant testing of the La Blache material, which will provide us with the information we need for a feasibility study.""For the Fermont project, we will continue exploring the property this summer to assess its graphite potential. Thanks to its favourable location next to Focus Graphite's Knife Lake deposit, this project could also become a key asset for the Company. Finally, despite the challenging market, the Company is in a strong financial position, with over $3 million in cash," Mr. Curtis concluded.
