Pacific Gold Corp. Black Rock Canyon Mine Nears Completion on Mill Modifications

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2010) - Pacific Gold Corp. (PINK SHEETS:PCFG) announced today that the Black Rock Canyon mine is nearing completion of the modifications to its mill.

Nevada Rae Gold has been upgrading the mill to ensure a better efficiency and production rate once operations commence. Currently the Company is working on reconnecting the electrical power to all plant machinery. Having completed the majority of general repairs and upgrades to the plant, this is one of the final steps before production can commence.

Preparations are being made to run a batch of material to test the new system once the electrical is complete. At that time, we will implement the geo-textile tubes for testing as well to ensure we have resolved any issues regarding sedimentary build up within our pond and water flow system.

The advances of the plant are the key to restarting the mine for anticipated production this year, and will aid the company in its search to secure a funding source which is needed by the company.
