The report states: "Pacific Gold is an exciting investment opportunity. The Company is in an excellent position to further expand its asset base, advance toward profitable operations and generate significant cash flows… Since the capital investment requirement for additional capacity at its mill is limited, the potential for increased production from additional resources should significantly improve the Company's top-line… Gold prices have broken new highs and are currently trading upwards of $1,600. Most analysts believe gold prices will move up higher in the immediate future. The significant premium is attributable to various macroeconomic events, resurgence of demand from Asian economies, depreciating dollar, massive international debt problems, including in the USA, increased demand for gold from central banks as well as an investment option as a result of economic and political turmoil across the globe. We believe that current and future developments are creating conditions and opportunities that are exciting for investing in gold. Pacific Gold is well positioned to benefit from this global trend."
