Pacific Gold Corp. Acquires Gold Mining Project in Nevada

TORONTO, Oct 16, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp, (OTCBB: PCFG), announced today that it has signed a lease agreement that will allow the Company to mine the alluvial deposits on fee simple land adjacent to the Company's 29 placer gold mining claims near Crescent Valley, Nevada. The mining claims and lease agreement are held in a newly formed subsidiary of the Company, Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.

The leases cover approximately an additional 10% of the resource area in addition to the Company owned claims, which comprise almost 30% of a large alluvial gold resource in northern Nevada.

Terms of the deal include an annual royalty payment to the land owner.

Previous, independent geological, engineering and pre-feasibility reports indicate the total resource of the area is almost 1.98 million cubic yards of gravel grading 0.034 oz/yd of gold in a proven reserve category, and a further 6.3 million cubic yards of gravel grading 0.031 oz/yd in a probable reserve category. In addition, the project has the potential for another 30-100 million cubic yards of gold bearing resource.

The claims are located in the famous Battle Mountain-Crescent Valley Gold Trend in Lander County, Nevada. The property lies in the Bullion Mining District some 85 km west of Elko and 50 km southeast of Battle Mountain. Many large scale mining operations are located nearby including the Pipeline Mine owned jointly by Placer Dome and Kennecott. Recently, Placer Dome released news of it's nearby Cortez Hills discovery which could contain up to 10 million ounces of gold. The Nevada Rae Gold claims may contain some hard rock deposit potential.
