Thomas Paulsen Joins Pacific Sands Board of Directors

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - January 9, 2008) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCBB: PFSD), which manufactures environmentally friendly cleaning and water treatment solutions, announced today Thomas Paulsen has joined the company's Board of Directors.

Paulsen, 44, is the chief financial officer of Wismarq Corporation, a national coil coater of steel and aluminum building products, based in Oconomowoc, WI, employing over 100 workers.

Mr. Paulsen is a certified public accountant with an MBA from Marquette University. He began his career in public accounting with Ernst & Whinney and has over 21 years of experience with an extensive background in accounting, corporate budgeting and operations. He was the chief financial officer and corporate controller for Kelley Company, based in Milwaukee, WI, from 2000 to 2002.

"We look forward to gaining Tom's perspectives from his experience in finance and his knowledge of the public corporate sector from his years a Kelley Company," said Michael Wynhoff, president and CEO of Pacific Sands. "His tenure at Wismarq, which has a strong commitment to the environment as demonstrated by their installation of a multi-million dollar incinerator guaranteeing 98% VOC destruction (which far exceeds the EPA requirement) gives him valuable insights into our ecology-focused business."

Paulsen will also serve as the company's corporate Secretary and chair the company's audit and compensation committees. With Paulsen, the Pacific Sands board has been expanded from 3 to 4 individuals.
