Capital Gold Announces Record Gold Production Totals for December 2008


    NEW YORK, Jan. 6 /CNW/ -- Capital Gold (TSX: CGC; OTC Bulletin Board:  
CGLD) announced today that it produced 5,375 ounces of gold in December at its
El Chanate mine in Sonora, Mexico.  This represents the Company's best monthly
production to date, and surpasses the previous best monthly total of 4,750
ounces by 13%.

    Capital Gold's Chief Operating Officer, John Brownlie, said, "This
increased production is the result of careful planning and implementation of
our production enhancement program that we initiated in mid-2008.  The program
will culminate with the installation of an additional crusher module,
scheduled for late March.  This will allow for further production increases." 
All of the financing for the program's upgrades and additions have been
provided through operational cash flow.
