    John Brownlie, Capital Gold's Chief Operating Officer, said: "In the
third quarter, we continued to forecast our production goal of 50,000 for the
2008 calendar year.  The mine produced over 4,200 ounces of gold and gold
equivalent during the month of May, an increase over the prior months.  We
anticipate that production for June and July will be similar to that of May."
    Brownlie added, "The construction of the new ADR plant, and refinery
upgrades to accommodate increased production, are progressing as planned for
commissioning during September.  To date, the civil works and procurement are
complete, and most of the US sourced equipment is on-site.  The ADR tanks and
piping will be tested this month." Capital Gold management believes once these
upgrades are in place, they will achieve their projected production rate of
70,000 ounces of gold in 2009.
    A conference call discussing the third quarter results will be held on
Thursday, June 12th, 2008, at 1:00 PM Eastern Time and will be accessible
