August 10, 2009, Vancouver, BC - Great Basin Gold Ltd, ("Great Basin" or the "Company"), (TSX: GBG; NYSE Amex: GBG; JSE: GBG) announces that it has completed the refurbishment of the Esmeralda Mill. The Esmeralda Mill will process material extracted from the Hollister Gold Project at which trial mining is currently underway. The commissioning process at Esmeralda commenced in mid July. The commissioning will proceed in two phases. Following the completion of a concrete ore pad, low grade material from Hollister was shipped to Esmeralda. This material will be used for the first-phase cold commissioning of the mill with higher grade material to follow in the second phase. A Gekko float and gravity circuit will be installed and commissioned by the end of October 2009 to allow for maximum throughput of 350 tons per day and an estimated 91% recovery of the high metal content material from Hollister.
