PCFG - Pilot Mountain Spin Off

TORONTO, March 18, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ --

Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCBB: PCFG) today provided an update on Pilot Mountain Resources.

Pacific Gold has completed a share restructuring of Pilot Mountain Resources, Inc. by subscribing for new shares of Pilot Mountain Resources, Inc. and raising the current outstanding shares of Pilot Mountain Resources to 10 million shares. Pilot Mountain Resources plans to file a Form 10 filing with the SEC in April to prepare the Company for a dividend distribution of 2 million of the shares owned by Pacific Gold Corp. to the shareholders of Pacific Gold Corp. at some point in the near future.

Once the dividend is completed, Pilot Mountain should qualify for listing on the OTC Bulletin Board.

In addition, Pacific Gold has made similar arrangements for its 100% owned subsidiary Oregon Gold, Inc. with similar arrangements regarding share structure and a Form 10 filing with the SEC.

Management is pursuing a strategy of spinning off some Pacific Gold subsidiaries into their own publicly traded companies because management believes the projects are not currently reflective of the true value in the Pacific Gold Corp. stock price. Pilot Mountain Resources owns claims that comprise Project W which is a large predominantly tungsten-based resource with mineralized deposits that may contain up to a gross in ground value, before costs, of $800 million in base metals.

Shares in both subsidiaries are still subject to lien under the agreement with Yorkville Advisors.
