BCGold Corp. Commences Exploration Program on Minto Area Copper-Gold Properties, Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2009) - BCGold Corp. ("BCGold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BCG) is pleased to announce that geological field crews have commenced work on the Minto Block of the Company's Carmacks Copper-Gold property package in central Yukon. The Minto Block consists of 6 properties located immediately northwest of, and along trend with, Capstone Mining Corp.'s ("Capstone") Minto deposits.

Phase I exploration on BCGold's Minto Block will entail geological mapping and prospecting over a number of coincidental copper +/- gold soil mobile metal ion (MMI™) and induced polarization (I.P.) anomalies defined on the Toe, Pepper and Spear claims by BCGold in 2008. For BCGold's Minto Block copper exploration targets please view the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/r/MintoBlock.

BCGold is the largest landholder in the Carmacks Copper-Gold Belt, holding title to 17 properties strategically located near and adjacent to Capstone's high-grade copper-gold Minto mine and Western Copper Corp.'s Carmacks Copper Project situated 50 kilometres to the southeast.

"BCGold is excited about this exploration program north of Minto mine, particularly in light of the very high grade copper and gold results recently announced by Capstone from the new Minto North discovery," cites Brian P. Fowler, P.Geo., President and Chief Executive Officer of BCGold. "BCGold has comparable copper-in-soil geochemical and I.P. anomalies on 3 properties and this phase of fieldwork will refine these exploration targets in preparation for diamond drill testing later this season."
