Expert Comments:

BMO Capital Markets (11/11/16)
"Pershing Gold Corp. is a relatively lesser-known (and definitely under-owned) story in Canada. . .a simple open-pit, heap-leach development story in Nevada, but one that stands out vs. peers as it has a full, new, process facility and infrastructure already in place, and therefore has very low remaining capital requirements and excellent economics (NPV $189M, IRR 988% at $1250 gold). Plans for a TSX listing in the very near term should help entice new Canadian institutional interest."

Bhakti Pavani, Euro Pacific Capital (11/10/16)
"Pershing Gold Corp. has completed phase I of the 2016 drilling program. . .three of the eleven drill holes, including RC16-470, EC 16-475, and RC 16-478, have intersected high-grade intercepts. . .the company initiated phase II of the 2016 drilling program last week. . .the program will test highly prospective drill targets that have been identified through geophysics as well as rock and soil anomalies around the Relief Canyon mine. . .While some permits are currently being processed, we anticipate the production at the mine to begin as early as Q2/17."

Heiko Ihle, Rodman & Renshaw (11/10/16)
"Pershing Gold Corp. announced results from Phase 1 of its drilling program at Relief Canyon, in addition to the start of the Phase 2 program. . .given the apparent success of the program, we believe the project may remain open to the west. . .in addition to results from the Phase 2 program, going into the end of 2016 we expect strong news flow. . .most notably, we anticipate the release of a prefeasibility study (PFS) for Relief Canyon. . .we continue to think there is a good chance for Pershing to announce a positive production decision by the end of 2016."

Rob Chang, Cantor Fitzgerald (10/27/16)
"The BLM has approved the Environmental Assessment and Plan of Operations allowing Pershing Gold Corp.to expand the Relief Canyon Mine. . .the BLM stated that Pershing's planned mitigation and environmental protection measures will protect the environment and the expanded mine will not create any significant environmental impacts. . .the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection is currently completing its analysis of several other permits, which Pershing anticipates will be issued within the next two months. . .we continue to forecast production from Relief Canyon to commence in Q2/17, with nearly 85,000 oz gold produced over the 5.8-year LOM."

Mark Heim, Noble Financial (9/23/16)
"Should mining economics look attractive, Pershing Gold Corp. has the infrastructure in place to start-up operations quickly. . .we estimate all-in cash operating costs of $750 per gold ounce equivalent and non-cash costs of $25 per gold ounce when fully operational. . .we believe the company would generate positive cash flow and earnings should it decide to begin production. . .a ramp up to production could come quickly and that further expansions are possible. . .we are initiating coverage of the shares of Pershing Gold with a Buy rating and a price target of $5.50 per share."

Chen Lin, What Is Chen Buying? What Is Chen Selling? (9/22/16)
"I had a good meeting with Pershing Gold Corp. management. . .They are continuing to drill around the pit, looking to expand resources and increase the grade. . .The recent drill holes were excellent and at significant higher grades. . .I also like the fact that this company has been a "sleeper" this year, missed the big rally in gold. I hope it will catch up with other miners with new drilling results and the production decision. . .I have been buying shares lately."
