Vancouver, British Columbia, September 23, 2013 (TSX-V: BCG) - BCGold Corp. (“BCGold” or
the “Company”) is pleased to announce that exploration work has commenced on its 100%-owned WS
Property (the “Property”) in central Yukon. The Property is situated adjacent and along strike with
Copper North Mining Corp.’s Carmacks Copper Project (the “Carmacks Project”), which has Proven and
Probable Reserves of 11.5 million tonnes grading 0.98% total copper, 0.44 g/t gold and 4.3 g/t silver and
is in the final stages of mine permitting.

The WS exploration program, partly funded by a $25,000 Yukon Mining Incentives Program (YMIP)
grant, is designed to enhance current drill targets on the Property, which are interpreted to be the strike
extents of Zones 12 and 14 of the Carmacks Project. Previous drill testing by BCGold intersected two
near-surface copper sulphide horizons averaging 0.17% Cu over 63.1 metres (see January 13, 2009 news
release). The 2013 exploration program will consist of the following:
  • detailed high-resolution IP geophysics near the claim boundary of the Carmacks Project and the Property;
  • a limited program of VLF geophysics and biogeochemical sampling, as alternative techniques to delineate further the strike extent of Zones 12, 14 and the ICE showing;
  • geological mapping and prospecting over a 2.5 km2 prospective area with IP and magnetic signatures and elevated copper-in-soil anomalies that are suggestive of near-surface, Minto-style mineralization.
BCGold’s 2013 exploration program will take approximately four weeks to complete. The IP geophysics
program is being conducted by GroundTruth Exploration based in Dawson, Yukon. The concurrent VLF
geophysics and biochemical sampling programs are being conducted by Dumas Consulting and Core
Assets Consulting, both independent contractors to the Company. Biogeochemical samples will be
submitted to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Kamloops, British Columbia, an ISO 9001:2008 accredited
laboratory. The work program is supervised by Darren O’Brien, P.Geo., Vice President of Exploration for
BCGold and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. O’Brien has reviewed and
approved the technical contents of this news release.
