Pacific Sands Announces Record 3rd Quarter -- Sales up 61% Fueled by First Partial Quarter With Combined 'Natural Choices' Sales

Results Mark 15th Consecutive Quarter of Same Quarter Growth for Emerging Environmental Products Consumables Company

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - May 16, 2008) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCBB: PFSD), a cutting edge Environmental Products development, production and marketing company, announced today that it has filed its third quarter 10QSB reflecting its 15th consecutive quarter of same quarter sales growth.

Results for the three months ending March 31, 2008 compared to the three months ending March 31, 2007.

For the three months ending March 31, 2008 net sales were $243,242, an increase of 61% over net sales of $151,486 for the same period in 2007. The increase in sales is (partially) attributable to the additional sales recorded as a result of the (Feb 9, 2008) acquisition of Natural Choices (Home Products LLC).

Cost of Goods Sold was $73,079 or 30% of net sales compared to $69,074 or 46% for the same period the previous fiscal year. The significant decrease is due in part to difference in gross margins between the existing Pacific Sands products and the Natural Choices products. In addition there were some costing adjustments as a result of new less costly packaging designs.

For the three months ending March 31, 2008, selling and general administrative expenses were $251,319 compared to $202,318 for the three months ending March 31, 2007. The overall increase in selling and general administrative is due in part to an increase in compensation expense for the addition of the former officers of Natural Choices and one additional employee who began employment during the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Other selling, general and administrative have also increased as a result of the volume increase.

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2008 was $8,992 as compared to $13,118 for the same period in fiscal 2007. The decrease is attributed to the reduction of five capital lease obligations for which the Company makes monthly payments thus reducing the principal owed. Other income of $5,000 relates to the reversal of a liability that had been accrued as a note due to a former officer of the Company.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2008 was $85,148 or $0.002 per share compared to a net loss of $132,853 or $0.004 per share for the same period in fiscal 2007.
