Immediate Release                                  3 October 2011

               ALLIED GOLD MINING - PRODUCTION UPDATE

             36,085 ounces produced in September quarter

 Simberi (PNG) 15,899 ounces, Gold Ridge (Guadalcanal) 20,186 ounces.



Allied Gold Mining PLC ("Allied Gold" or the "Company") provides the
following overview of its production performance for the September
quarter with 36,085 ounces produced in the quarter and 77,157 ounces
for the nine months to 30 September 2011.

The Company will release more detail regarding its operations as part
of a Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) on or about Tuesday 25th
of October 2011.

Simberi (Papua New Guinea) - Simberi produced 15,899 ounces in the
September quarter, and produced 44,897 ounces for the nine months to 30
September 2011. Production during the quarter was slightly below
budget due to a higher number of high rainfall days than expected.
Grade for the quarter was 1.07g/t and recovery at 87%. Expansion of the
oxide process plant expansion from 2.0 mtpa to 3.5 mtpa is continuing
and heavy fuel oil initiatives are progressing.

Production guidance for December quarter for Simberi is expected to be
at lower end of the 14,000-18,000 range, while repairs are made to the
ball mill due to failure of the pinion gear shaft and damage to the air
clutch over the weekend of 1st and 2nd October 2011. Mill repairs are
expected to take 10-14 days over the quarter as replacement parts are
delivered and progressively installed. Although a full technical
assessment has yet to be completed, the initial cost of repairs is
estimated to be approximately US$500,000.

Gold Ridge (Guadalcanal) - Gold Ridge produced 20,186 ounces in the
September quarter in line with the commissioning and ramp up plans
since the first gold was poured in March. Gold production to date for
calendar 2011 is 32,260 ounces. Mill throughput for the quarter was
approximately 459,990 tonnes, grade was 1.96g/t and recovery 69%. This
is in line with management expectations of continual improvement in
operational metrics throughout the remainder of 2011. For the current
December quarter, Gold Ridge is expected to produce between 18,000 and
23,000 ounces as additional access to the higher-grade Namachamatta pit
occurs.

Capital Expenditure - Capital expenditure on Gold Ridge is complete.
The Company spent US$1.75m on Simberi capital and refurbishment
activities in the September quarter as part of expansion of the plant
to 3.5 mtpa.

Gold Sales - For the September quarter Allied Gold sold 31,035 ounces
for an average realized price of US$1751/oz. The Company does not hedge
its gold production.

Corporate - Cash at Bank (unaudited) as at 30 September 2011was US$48m
(not including 4,095oz of gold at refinery) with interest bearing
liabilities of US$53m. The debt incorporates US$18m of fleet leasing
and US$35m loan with the IFC. Although the IFC debt facilities do not
expire until 2015 the Company continues to assess its optimal working
capital structures for the group. During the September quarter the
company was admitted to the FTSE All Share Index with the potential to
be included in the FTSE 250 index at the next FTSE quarterly review in
December 2011 .

Allied Gold will provide a further update on all activities including
repairs, current optimization projects, cash costs as part of its
detailed September quarter MD&A to be released on or about Tuesday 25th
of October 2011.

financial projections and cost estimates; the possibility of cost
overruns, accidents, strikes, delays and other problems in development

to terms of any financings completed; uncertainties relating to
environmental risks and government approvals, and possible political
instability or changes in government policy in jurisdictions in which
properties are located. Forward-looking statements are based on
management's beliefs, opinions and estimates as of the date they are
made, and no obligation is assumed to update forward-looking statements
if these beliefs, opinions or estimates should change or to reflect
other future developments.
