Pacific Gold Corp.-Pilot Mountain Resources Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - Pacific Gold Corp. (PINK SHEETS:PCFG) announced today that the Company's subsidiary, Pilot Mountain Resources Inc. ("PMR"), has granted to Pilot Metals Inc., a subsidiary of Black Fire Minerals Limited of Australia (ASX:BFE) a 100 day extension to the diligence period in the Option and Asset Sale Agreement ("Agreement") as announced on February 14th.

The additional diligence period is required in order for Pilot Mountain to conduct a quiet title action in Nevada to eliminate any potential third party claims against the Project W mining claims.

The company filed an action against Platoro West Inc. ("Platoro"), Wolfranium Resource Corporation, William Sheriff and other parties in order to quiet title to certain unpatented mining claims located in Mineral County, Nevada, on April 15, 2011, in the County of Washoe, Case Number CV11-01181. On April 26, 2011, Platoro West Inc. filed an action against Pilot Mountain Resources Inc., entitled Verified Complaint for Damages and to Quiet Title and Expunge Cloud Upon Title in the District Court, Mineral County, Case Number 9438. The Company believes that the action of Platoro in the Washoe Court should be consolidated with the company's action to quiet title because the issues are basically the same.

The company commenced its action to quiet title in various claims it acquired from Platoro on August 31, 2006, located in Mineral County because Platoro had asserted certain rights thereto, despite Platoro's having taken action to transfer by assignment the claims to the company in 2006. Platoro's action in the Mineral County District Court is an attempt to have the claims returned to it based on assertions that the Company breached its original purchase agreement to acquire the claims, despite the subsequent assignment, and that the Company did not deal fairly with Platoro under the terms of the purchase agreement. The Company believes that it fully performed the terms of the contract, and regardless, the subsequent assignment of the claims waived any breaches under the purchase agreement and transferred them to the company, and the company is fully entitled to continue to hold the claims. The Company plans to defend its rights to the claims to the fullest extent possible.
