Pacific Gold Corp.-Black Rock Canyon Mine Production & Plant Operations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 10, 2012) - Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCQB:PCFG)(PINKSHEETS:PCFG) -

The Company's subsidiary Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. announces production progress at the Black Rock Canyon Mine in the 2nd quarter.

Nevada Rae Gold spent two months of the quarter working on modifications to the plant, as laid out by our engineering consultants, hiring a new mine manager and preparing for operations.

The Company is pleased to report that the modifications were finished in June. The modifications included, rebuilding of current slurry pumps, a new sump tank for the trommel, installation of baffle tanks for settling of water and a new hydro cyclone configuration.

Once the modifications were complete, the plant was able to run successfully in the second half of June. The plant processed over 7,000 yards in 12 operating days and was able to steadily increase the throughput each day up to nearly 1,000 yards per day in about 7 hours of operation per day. The plant was able to operate well with the increased feed rate. The Mining crew has begun hauling new ore for processing.

"We feel great strides were made over this past quarter positioning us to increase production going forward," said Mitchell Geisler, Chief Operating Officer. "Our team is working hard to ensure production moves forward and allows us to meet our goals."
