Vancouver, British Columbia, March 15, 2012 (TSX-V: BCG and PINK SHEETS: BCGOF) - BCGold Corp. (or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a Letter Agreement with Pacific-Link Capital Inc. (“Pacific-Link”) (PCL.P: TSX-V) whereby, subject to regulatory approval, Pacific-Link can earn up to a 70% interest in BCGold Corp.'s 100% controlled Toe Property, Yukon.

BCGold Corp. has granted Pacific-Link the option to acquire a 60% interest in the Toe Property (“Property”) by making $255,000 in cash payments, $1,900,000 in exploration expenditures and issuing 400,000 shares of Pacific-Link to BCGold Corp. over a four year period.

In addition to regulatory approval, the Pacific-Link option is subject to BCGold Corp. and Pacific-Link entering into a definitive option and joint venture agreement on or before April 30, 2012.

The 1,600 hectare Toe Property is one of BCGold Corp.'s 16 Minto/Carmacks Copper Gold Properties (15,925 hectares) in Yukon, strategically located proximal and adjacent to Capstone Mining Corp.'s currently producing, high-grade copper-gold Minto Mine and Copper North Mining Corp.'s Carmacks Copper Project. BCGold Corp. is the largest land holder in the Carmacks Copper-Gold Belt, having spent approximately $4 million in exploration expenditures over the past 4 years and discovering 7 copper-gold mineralized zones.

The Toe Property is located 7 kilometers northwest of the Minto Mine and 255 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse, Yukon. The Toe Property is drill-ready and hosts a number of copper-gold soil anomalies and “Minto-type” geophysical targets. The Toe Property is subject to a 2.5% net smelter returns royalty interest held by BCGold Corp. and a third party.
