3/17/2004 1:18:00 PM ET Pacific Gold Corp. Closes Purchase of Private Land, Water Producing Wells and Equipment for its Crescent Valley, Nevada Project

TORONTO, Mar 17, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCBB: PCFG) announced today that, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Nevada Rae Gold, Inc., an agreement to purchase land, environmentally tested and approved water wells, and equipment for its Crescent Valley mining project has closed, ahead of schedule.

Effective today, the Company owns 13.67 acres of private land in Lander County, Nevada, less than two miles from the Company's proven gold resources at Crescent Valley. The land is adjacent to a well maintained, all-weather asphalt road (County Road 306) which connects with Interstate 80, 19 miles to the north.

The land will accommodate the Company's mill, processing plant, on-site storage, security headquarters, and remote office facilities.

The purchase agreement also includes two water wells, and equipment for its Crescent Valley gold mining project. The private land and two wells have been formally analyzed and tested by the State of Nevada and the Company's environmental consultants, Chemrox Technologies, and are determined to be in excellent condition, free of any contaminants. The tests also confirmed that the certified capacity of each well exceeds the output rates required by Nevada Rae to successfully operate its processing plant. In addition, the wells and property are supplied by a 23,000 volt State supplied power grid, which is reduced to 480 volts for use at the processing plant and office facilities.

The cost of purchasing the land, water producing wells and rights, and equipment was $120,000. The Company paid $60,000 on date of closing, and will pay the remaining $60,000, at the rate of $10,000 per month for six months ending September 1, 2004.

Pacific Gold recently announced the filing of its Plan of Operations for the Crescent Valley project. This fact, combined with today's news, positions the Company in an advanced phase, having made significant progress this year toward its goal of producing gold by Q4-2004.
