Veris Gold Corp. Announces Exercise Of Greenshoe Option To Acquire CDN$2,000,000 Convertible Debentures

VANCOUVER, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Veris Gold Corp. (TSX: VG) (OTCQB: YNGFD) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) ( "VG" or the "Company") , formerly Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp., is pleased to announce that Whitebox Advisors LLC ( "Whitebox" or the "Investor") has exercised its option to acquire CDN$2,000,000 principal amount of additional unsecured convertible debentures (the " Greenshoe Debentures"), as previously announced in its news release of June 15, 2012. Odeon Capital Group, LLC served as exclusive placement agent to the Company on this transaction.

The Company intends to use the proceeds for continued development of Starvation Canyon mine, to expand production at the SSX/Steer mine and to commence work on the clean-up of historic rock disposal areas, the last item to be completed under the Consent Decree. These funds will enable the Company to maintain its focus and momentum in ramping up ore production at the Jerritt Canyon property.

The Greenshoe Debentures bear interest at a rate of 11% per annum and will mature 42 months from the closing date (the "Maturity Date"). At the option of the Investor, the principal amount of the Greenshoe Debentures and all interest accrued thereon will be convertible into common shares of the Company (the "Shares") at any time after expiry of the four (4) month hold period of the Greenshoe Debentures and prior to the close of business on the Maturity Date, based on a conversion price equal to the greater of (a) CDN$1.50 and (b) the Market Price (as defined in the TSX Company Manual) of the Shares discounted by 5% per Share (the "Conversion Price"). The ability of the Company to pay interest in cash will be subject to the prior written consent of Deutsche Bank AG.

Upon the Maturity Date, the Greenshoe Debentures and all interest accrued thereon may, at the Company's discretion, be paid in cash, Shares or any combination of cash and Shares. The Company may only elect to convert all or any part of the Greenshoe Debentures outstanding on the Maturity Date into, and pay to the Investor the principal sum of the Greenshoe Debentures in, Shares if the Market Price for the Shares for at least five (5) out of the ten (10) trading days preceding the date in which the Company delivers the Shares to the Investor (such date not to be less than twenty (20) days prior to the Maturity Date) is greater than CDN$2.00.

The Investor will have the option to require early repayment in the event of default by the Company.
