Capital Gold Announces Gold Production Totals for December



    Greatest Monthly Production to Date

    NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /CNW/ -- Capital Gold (TSX: CGC; OTC Bulletin Board:  
CGLD) reported today that the Company has produced approximately 4,200 ounces
of gold in December from its El Chanate mine in Sonora, Mexico. Total
production for the current fiscal quarter, which ends January 31, now stands
at 7,200 ounces. The average sale price for this fiscal quarter has been
approximately $816 per ounce, as compared to $711 per ounce for the first
quarter. Production costs are still running well below industry average. The
Company's latest sale of gold was completed at $860 per ounce. Production for
the first full year of operation is estimated to be 50,000 ounces.
    Capital Gold Chairman Gifford Dieterle said: "Our December production
figures indicate that we are ahead of where we were during the same period in
the first quarter of operation. That, combined with the increasing gold price,
makes me believe that our second quarter performance will be better than our
very successful first quarter."
    Capital Gold's COO, John Brownlie, said: "The leach pad expansion is
going as planned, and we are currently stacking ore on the first of the newly
constructed panels. We will continue construction of the leach pad through the
first half of 2008. This will give the Company sufficient leach pad capacity
for the next five years, even at the planned increased production rates.
Assembly of additional leach pad stacking conveyors will begin this week and
is anticipated to be completed during January." Brownlie added: "Throughout
the initial period of operation we have continually focused on maximizing our
production through operator training and adjustments to the crushing circuit.
This has paid off because we are consistently crushing 30% more ore than the
feasibility study rates. Ultimately this increased tonnage crushed will result
in greater gold production and lower operating costs."
