Pacific Sands Current Quarter Sales Exceeding Those of Previous Record Quarter at Halfway Point

RACINE, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 16, 2005 -- Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTC BB: PFSD) is pleased to announce that the company's fiscal year 2005 fourth quarter sales to date have already surpassed those of the third quarter as reported on Friday, May 13, 2005. The company's third quarter results reflected a sales increase in excess of 300% over the same period the previous year.

Pacific Sands CFO and VP of Marketing and Sales, Michael Michie, commented, "While existing outlet sales are up substantially, the majority of our increases in sales stem from initial stocking orders for new retailers and distributors. Six months ago, we effectively had no distribution. Today we have major distribution centers in Washington State, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Western Canada and the United Kingdom. These are not one-time sales driving our current growth."

The company is also developing a substantial nationwide retail and wholesale presence through well known outlets such as poolandspa.com, Doheny's Water Warehouse, Spa Parts Plus and SCP Pool Corp.

"We're very conservative with forward looking guidance at PFSD," said Pacific Sands President and CEO Michael Wynhoff, "but it feels good to be able to report with 100% confidence that our fourth quarter sales will exceed those of the third quarter."

Pacific Sands Inc. will host a third quarter 2005 earnings call today, 16 May, 2005, at 11:00 AM Eastern Time. Pacific Sands invites all those interested in hearing management's discussion to join the call by dialing 800-821-1449. Pacific Sands President and CEO Michael Wynhoff and CFO Michael Michie will discuss the results of the previous quarter and provide insights into the current state of operations.
