Pacific Gold Corp. - Black Rock Canyon Resource Expansion
TORONTO, June 14, 2011 - Pacific Gold Corp. (Pink Sheets: PCFG)
Nevada Rae Gold, Inc., ("NRG") a subsidiary of PCFG, has entered into a lease agreement with the owners representing a group of additional claims adjacent to NRG's existing leases and claims in Crescent Valley. This new group of claims is referred to by NRG as the B&B claims. NRG has agreed to lease a 75% interest in the B&B claims.
The B&B claims area encompasses almost 2,000 acres of additional federal mining claims containing gold bearing gravels. The B&B claims more than double NRG's existing land area in Crescent Valley at the Black Rock Canyon Mine. The B&B claims have been previously researched and explored and have gold resources described in the Bharti Engineering and Robertson Research reports. The Bharti report outlines the total Crescent Valley resource as being almost 2 million cubic yards of proven gold bearing gravels, 12.6 million cubic yards of probable gold bearing gravels, and 30 million cubic yards of potential gold bearing gravels.
NRG plans to perform a new evaluation on the B&B claims including new maps, a seismic survey to measure the full volume of the gravels, as well as bulk trench sampling in order to confirm the gold grades of the claims as reported in the Bharti and Robertson reports.
The new lease agreement is subject to a diligence review that NRG is now undertaking. Once the lessor's claim ownership has been established to NRG's satisfaction, NRG will close the lease transaction.
The lease calls for NRG to pay the claim owners a gross royalty of 4% on gold sales or $0.50 per yard of gravels mined, whichever is greater. NRG will be required to make annual minimum advance royalty payments. The term of the lease is for 10 years with an option for NRG to extend the term for a further 10 years.
Pacific Gold Corp., currently has 745,732,651 shares outstanding.
