Great Basin Gold Announces The Appointment Of Vice President For The Nevada Operations

VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Great Basin Gold Ltd. ("Great Basin Gold" or the "Company") (TSX: GBG; NYSE Amex: GBG; JSE: GBG) announces an addition to its management team with the appointment of Joseph M. (Joe) Driscoll as Vice President (VP) for Great Basin Gold's Nevada Operations.

Joe Driscoll is a qualified Mining Engineer and alumnus of the College of Mineral Science and Technology (1987) from which he holds a Bachelor of Science degree. He started his mining career at Western Energy Company as a Metallurgical Technician in 1986, following which he also worked for Pegasus Gold, New Butte Mining Company, Independence Mining Company, Stillwater Mining Company and Newmont's Carlin and Midas Operations. In 2005, he was Mine Manager at Queenstake Resources' Jerritt Canyon Operations, and in 2006 he joined Barrick's Goldstrike Mine as Mine Operations and Maintenance Superintendent.

Responsible for leading the well-qualified management team that is primarily focused on safely operating and developing the Company's Hollister and Esmeralda operations, Joe will be instrumental in enhancing partnerships and relations with stakeholders in the area. His role will also be to direct the team's efforts toward the intended long term growth, backed by sustained performance, in that operating environment.
