PCFG Corporate Update

TORONTO, Nov 30, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCBB: PCFG) today provided updates on the status of its projects at Nevada Rae's Black Rock Canyon mine, Fernley Gold, and Project W, as well as the Company's recent financing activities.

Black Rock Canyon Mine

Pacific Gold Corp. has made steady progress on the construction of the main building and mill at the Black Rock Canyon mine near Crescent Valley, Nevada.

Building No. 1 which houses the mill's screen plant, gold room and staff area, is now complete, and the interior finishing (i.e., plumbing and electrical) is underway. The Company's electrical contractors are on-site on a daily basis, and the electrical power hook-up and wiring is expected to be completed by the middle of December.

The JCI screen plant has been installed, and the Company's work crew is completing fabrication and installation of the gravel processing equipment.

The large main pit and retaining wall where the gravels will be deposited by the haul trucks has now been completed. The Company has received delivery of its vibrating grizzly feeder and hopper extension. Both of these major pieces of the mill are scheduled for installation this week.

Remaining work in progress includes: plumbing of the plant and facilities (including pump and pipe installation); positioning of the remaining plant equipment; road work; security requirements; and safety policies, training, and MSHA inspections.

Additionally, the first mining block of gravels has been stripped and prepared for excavation. To-date, approximately 5,000 yards of gravels has been stockpiled for pre-production testing of the plant, with plans to move into full-production early in the new year.

In October and November 2005, the Company experienced a delay in completion of the building construction, resulting from a shortage of qualified skilled labor in the region, and more recently poor weather conditions. As a result of the recent delays, and the fact that the holiday season is fast-approaching, the Company is now expecting the official start of production at the Black Rock Canyon mine during the first quarter of 2006.

Pictures of the construction progress at the Black Rock Canyon mine are available for viewing on the Company's website at; Fernley Gold

Fernley Gold is pleased to announce that it has been granted a testing permit for the Lower Olinghouse Placers, located in north-western Nevada. Fernley Gold estimates 445,000 ounces of gold resource in proven, probable and inferred reserves. The objective is to undertake a sampling program that can provide valuable information to Fernley Gold, in conjunction with the submission of a full Plan of Operations in 2006. The testing is expected to be completed in the spring of 2006.

Project W

Pilot Mountain Resources is in the planning process for updating its feasibility study and determining an effective plan of action for Project W, located in north-central Nevada.
