BCGold Corp. Commences Exploration Program at Voigtberg Property, B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - BCGold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BCG) (or the "Company") is pleased to announce that field work has commenced on the Voigtberg Gold-Copper-Molybdenum Property, located four kilometres north of the Galore Creek access road and proposed power transmission line, in northwest British Columbia, Canada.

BCGold Corp. is conducting a $100,000 geological mapping, sampling and prospecting program on the property to investigate a number of geophysical and geochemical copper, gold and molybdenum anomalies, defined by previous work, with the expectation of generating drill targets for 2011. This work program will vest BCGold Corp.'s 50% ownership into the property with project partner and optionor Kaminak Gold Corp.

The exploration target at the Voigtberg Property is a bulk tonnage "porphyry system" that hosts gold, copper and molybdenum. BCGold Corp. conducted two diamond drill programs on the 2,900 hectare property in 2006 and 2007, with total exploration expenditures of approximately $920,000.

The most significant exploration results to date are from the Gold Zone, a northeast elongated area measuring 400 x 650 metres coincident with a >300 parts per billion (ppb) gold in soil anomaly and an induced polarization chargeability high. Drill hole VG06-05 returned a near-surface intercept of 51.15 metres grading 1.03 g/t gold, including 18.17 metres grading 1.87 g/t gold. Step-out hole VGT07-10, drilled 75 metres east of hole VG06-05 by BCGold Corp. in 2007, intersected 76.40 metres that averaged 0.40 g/t gold. The Gold Zone is believed to represent a gold-rich halo located on the periphery of a porphyry copper-molybdenum system. The Gold Zone has been partially defined by six drill holes over a strike length of 300 metres and remains open along strike and at depth.
