BCGold Corp. Announces Changes to Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2011) - BCGold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BCG)(PINK SHEETS:BCGOF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Wes Roberts, M.Sc., MBA, P.Eng., to the Company's Board of Directors. The addition of Mr. Roberts is a continuance of the Company's corporate development strategy as it moves towards production at the Engineer Gold Mine. Mr. Roberts' appointment, which follows the recent addition of Mr. Darren O'Brien, P.Geo., as Vice President of Exploration, greatly enhances the Company's ability to identify, acquire and advance quality exploration, development and production opportunities.

Mr. Roberts is Vice President of Mining for Heenan Blaikie Global Advisors, an affiliate of Heenan Blaikie LLP. He is a professional mining engineer who specializes in the economic evaluation and development of mineral deposits. Mr. Roberts holds a B.Sc. (Mining Engineering) and M.Sc. (Mining Engineering) from Queen's University, and an MBA (Finance) from the Schulich School of Business. He has more than 25 years of experience in mineral exploration, mining operations, project engineering and management, as well as diverse mining engineering experience. Mr. Roberts has held numerous positions in the mining industry at various companies, including Canada Talc Ltd., Derry Michener Booth & Wahl, Davy International, BLM Bharti Engineering Inc., GMP Capital Inc., Inco Ltd. and most recently at Breakwater Resources Ltd. as Vice President of Corporate Development.

In concurrence with Mr. Roberts' appointment, the Company announces the resignation of Mr. Darren Bahrey from the Board of Directors. Mr. Bahrey has resigned from his position as director to focus on his duties as President of Oro Mining Ltd. Mr. Bahrey was a founding director of the Company and his exploration insights and passion will be sorely missed.

"On behalf of BCGold Corp., I extend a warm welcome to Mr. Roberts," states Brian P. Fowler, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company. "Mr. Roberts' diverse and exemplary exploration, evaluations, development and mining background compliments BCGold Corp.'s growth strategy in every aspect. On behalf of the Company I also wish to thank Mr. Bahrey for his years of service and dedication. We wish him every success in the future."
