Fronteer has announced that the acquisition of NewWest Gold is now complete giving Fronteer an additional 3.5 million ounces of gold equivalent to add to its resource base. The statement went on to say that:

The acquisition doubles Fronteer's 43-101 global resource base and transfers ownership of 19 new projects over 623,000 acres, including 12 with drill-indicated gold mineralization located on some of Nevada's most prolific gold trends.

NewWest's resource estimate - comprising its Northumberland, Sandman and Zaca projects - stands at 2.75 million ounces of gold with 18.9 million ounces of silver (measured + indicated), and 443,000 ounces of gold with 5.45 million ounces of silver (inferred), for an overall gold equivalent resource of 3.5 million ounces.

Mark O'Dea, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fronteer added that:

"This transaction establishes Fronteer as a significant gold company boasting a large deposit pipeline located in one of the best gold mining jurisdictions in the world. The combination of NewWest's exciting Nevada projects and our growing Turkish assets creates an outstanding platform for growth,"
