Ely Gold Announces Increased Gold Recoveries on Centennial Gold Project

June 14, 2010

Ely Gold & Minerals Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received positive results from additional metallurgical test work that reported higher gold recoveries on samples from the Company's Centennial deposit on the Mt. Hamilton property, located 65 kilometers west of Ely, in White Pine County, Nevada.

The metallurgical test work was performed by McClelland Laboratories Inc. under the direction of SRK Consulting U.S. Inc. ("SRK"). Bottle roll tests on sixteen drill core composites and column percolation tests on two drill core master composites provided confirmation of previous testing and upgraded projected field recoveries to 75% gold and 40% silver based on a regression analysis. An updated Preliminary Economic Assessment, currently being completed by SRK, will use the upgraded gold and silver recoveries.
