<p>"Production at El Chanate continues at a steady pace, indicating that the mine is on track for a 70,000 ounce per year run rate," said <span class="xn-person">Steve Cooper</span>, Chairman of the Board.  "This increased production is a testament to the El Chanate mine management team established by <span class="xn-person">John Brownlie</span>, including Mine Manager <span class="xn-person">Marco Antonio Galindo</span> Ramirez and Vice President of Exploration <span class="xn-person">Scott Hazlitt</span>."</p>
<p/>
<p>The Company also announced that upon consummation of the previously announced Nayarit Gold Inc. business combination, <span class="xn-person">John Brownlie</span>, President and Chief Operating Officer, intends to resign to pursue other interests.  "We want to thank John for his many contributions in helping Capital Gold Corp. to become a junior producer.  He led the effort to build El Chanate and to initiate production in record time.  We wish him the best in his future endeavors," said Cooper.  The Company will commence a search to fill the position vacated by <span class="xn-person">Mr. Brownlie</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>As previously announced in February, 2010, Capital Gold Corp and Nayarit Gold Inc. are in the process of seeking shareholder approval with respect to a business combination.  "Today Capital Gold expects to file an updated registration statement describing the merger, with expectation of a shareholder vote by mid June.  We are working with Nayarit to prepare its Orion Project for development.  Capital Gold mining personnel, including our chief geologist, chief metallurgist and an environmental engineer, recently returned from a productive site visit to Orion," said Cooper.</p>
