VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - BCGold Corp. ("BCGold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BCG) is pleased to announce that Phase I exploration has commenced on the Company's historic Engineer Mine Property situated near Atlin, British Columbia. Kluane Drilling Ltd. has been commissioned to conduct a 7 hole, 1,700 metre diamond drill program primarily targeting the Shear Zone "A" bulk-tonnage gold target, which has never been systematically drill tested (for details on the Shear Zone "A" target please see May 29, 2008 press release at http://www.bcgoldcorp.com/main/?newsReleases&45).
