Pacific Gold Corp. Announces Oregon Gold Spin Off

TORONTO, November 10, 2008 - Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCBB: PCFG) announced today that it has received consent from Yorkville Advisors (formerly Cornell Capital Partners) to release 20% of the shares of its wholly owned subsidiary Oregon Gold, Inc. to enable them to be distributed to the shareholders of Pacific Gold Corp.

Pacific Gold will distribute 20% of the Oregon Gold common shares by way of a stock dividend. Full details of the record date and details of the mechanics of the dividend will be announced in the near future.

Oregon Gold is a fully reporting company under SEC rules, and its Form 10 went effective on September 2nd, 2008.

Pacific Gold is spinning off a portion of the shares of Oregon Gold to its stockholders in order to expand the possibilities for funding the operations of Oregon Gold and increasing shareholder value by permitting the market to evaluate the operations and assets of Oregon Gold apart from those of Pacific Gold.

Oregon Gold owns the Defiance mine and placer claims covering nearly 280 acres in Josephine County, Oregon.

"We are currently working to proceed with the Oregon Gold dividend as soon as possible." stated Rob Landau, CEO, Pacific Gold Corp.
