Pacific Gold Corp. Announces Permitting Plan

TORONTO, Jan 20, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp, (OTCBB: PCFG), announced today that its subsidiary Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. has hired Chemrox Technologies to prepare, file and complete a Plan of Operations with the Bureau of Land Management and the State of Nevada for its Crescent Valley Project.

Chemrox and Company representatives held a preliminary meeting, with the State of Nevada and the BLM, in early December to discuss the various permitting options and environmental issues. Since then the Company has been preparing its Plan of Operations and its mining plan, in addition to the other necessary documentation for permitting.

Pacific Gold, through its subsidiary Nevada Rae Gold, has retained Chemrox on a 10-month contract to complete the permitting for the alluvial gold mine in Lander County near Crescent Valley. The Company's current estimate is that the permitting process will take about 10 months. Nevada Rae Gold hopes to be conducting mining operations by the fourth quarter of 2004.

In addition, the Company has begun the process of securing water rights as well as developing a timetable for the acquisition of personnel and equipment needed for mining operations.

Mr. Geisler, President, Pacific Gold, stated 'Our plan is to work closely with Chemrox to achieve an approved plan of operations that will allow the Company to develop a strong gold recovery operation in Crescent Valley, while at the same time, putting our claims and leases into production as soon as possible. We hope to be permitted before the end of the year and begin mining in Nevada in the fourth quarter of 2004.'
