Pacific Gold Corp. Receives Extension for Drilling Program in Oregon

TORONTO, Apr 13, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp, (OTCBB: PCFG), announced today that its subsidiary, Oregon Gold, Inc., has received extension approval for its Notice of Intent with the United States Forest Service in order to conduct a limited drill program of 13 holes on the Company's Bear Bench Project.

This approval will permit Oregon Gold to complete the drill work prior to May 31, 2004.

PCFG is in the process of acquiring specific equipment, as requested by the Forest Service, to complete the drill program including the acquisition of a track mounted drill rig.

The Company plans to release the drill results once the program is complete and the results have been tabulated.

Mr. Geisler, President, Pacific Gold, stated 'We are pleased that the Forest Service has granted us an extension of approval for our program. The drilling is expected to give us an opportunity to test the depths of the gravels on the Bear Bench, and give us additional data on the make-up and density of the gravels located in our claims.'He continued, 'The results should help us in future planning and possible production on the mining claim site.'

Initial drilling was to take place during the recent winter months, however tough weather conditions in Oregon resulted in the Forest Service requesting an equipment adjustment. The Company plans to conduct the drilling program during the next couple of months.
