Pacific Gold Corp.-Pilot Mountain Resources Legal Settlement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2011) - Pacific Gold Corp. (PINK SHEETS:PCFG)(OTCQB:PCFG)

The Company's subsidiary Pilot Mountain Resources, Inc. ("PMR") has settled its Quiet Title action with Platoro West Inc. ("Platoro"), Wolfranium Resource Corporation, and William Sheriff.

Under the terms of the settlement PMR is required to pay to Platoro 15% (fifteen percent) of all proceeds received from Black Fire Minerals subsidiary Pilot Metals under the option agreement between Pilot Metals and PMR. If Pilot Metals elects to not exercise its options then PMR will have two years to complete a new mining feasibility study on the Project W claims in order to retain ownership of the claims.

Rob Landau CEO of PCFG stated; "We felt that our claim to title was very strong, however the length of time and money involved in fighting the dispute was considerable and we felt that the Company would benefit more from having our resources working immediately at the Black Rock Canyon Mine."
