Pacific Gold Corp. Acquires Gold Recovery Unit

TORONTO, Aug 17, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp., (OTCBB: PCFG) announced today that it recently ordered a new Knelson XD-48 centrifugal concentrator for the Black Rock Canyon Mine near Crescent Valley, Nevada.

The new equipment is scheduled for delivery at the end of August 2005. The Knelson will be the main recovery unit for fine gold from the Black Rock Canyon Mine. The XD-48 has a rated capacity of up to 300 tons per hour and, with its expanded bowl size, should allow for maximum recovery of the fine gold from the mined gravels. This is the third piece Knelson equipment purchased by Pacific Gold. Previously Pacific realized a more than 99% recovery rate using a Knelson bowl at its project in Oregon in 2004.

About the Knelson Concentrator; "...The semi-continuous (batch) Knelson Concentrator is the most widely utilized centrifugal gravity concentration device in the industry. With unit capacities ranging from laboratory scale to 150 tonnes of solids per hour, the Knelson Concentrator combines centrifugally enhanced gravitational forces with a patented bed fluidization process to provide unmatched performance in the recovery of precious metals. Rugged design and a high degree of quality manufacturing ensures that every Knelson Concentrator will provide many years of reliable, trouble-free operation in even the most severe operating environments. The semi-continuous Knelson Concentrator has been successfully applied in the recovery of gold, platinum, silver, mercury and native copper."

Additionally, the Company announced the purchase of a 10,000 gallon fuel tank and a 1,000 gallon fuel trailer. These units will work in tandem to store an adequate fuel supply at the mine, and also handle the daily fueling requirements of the heavy machinery.

The Black Rock Canyon Mine is operated by Pacific Gold's subsidiary Nevada Rae Gold. The Company began pre-production in April, and expects to have the Mine in production during the fourth quarter of 2005.
