PCFG Updates Mill Testing and Modifications

Pacific Gold Corp., (OTCBB: PCFG) announced March 31, 2006 that the testing of the Mill for the Black Rock Canyon Mine is progressing well. Testing of the screening plant at the Black Rock Canyon Mine in Crescent Valley has been ongoing. As a result of the testing period it has been determined that some alterations to the plant were necessary. The Company has decided to add some additional components to the dewatering system, which have now been assembled. The Company also upgraded the motors on two conveyors that will help speed up the rate of feed to the plant.

The Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (NDEP) had requested that some changes be made to the water processing system and pond circulation. Almost all of the required modifications have been completed. Additionally, the Lander County Building Inspection Department has requested some additional information from the Company and some upgrades and improvements to the building be performed. The required improvements have already begun and the work is expected to take about 2 weeks to complete.

"The progression of steps to ensure sound mining conditions and operations within the plant is proceeding,” stated Rob Landau, CEO. “While we would have liked to be in full production in the first quarter we feel that it is necessary to ensure the plant will be running well for long term production during the projected life of the mine."
