Capital Gold Pours First Gold at El Chanate Mine

    North America's Newest Gold Producer Delivers

    NEW YORK, Aug. 2 /CNW/ -- Capital Gold (TSX: CGC) (OTC Bulletin Board:  
CGLD) said today that they had begun gold production at their El Chanate Mine
in Sonora, Mexico.  In so doing, they have become Mexico's and North America's
newest gold producer. The first shipment was estimated at 575 ounces of gold
and shipped to Met-Mex Penoles on July 31 for final refining.
    A delighted Gifford Dieterle, Capital Gold's Chairman and CEO, said that
the beginning of production at El Chanate is the culmination of years of
dedicated work by everyone at Capital Gold. "We completed the bank financing
and began major construction of El Chanate in August of 2006. In less than one
year we are producing gold. This is a monumental achievement and a credit to
John Brownlie, our COO, and the team he has assembled."
    Norberto Roque Diaz de Leon, Coordinator of Mining at Mexico's Secretaria
de Economia,, said he was especially pleased that Capital Gold had begun gold
production in Sonora to become Mexico's newest producer. "Capital Gold has
today joined the ranks of a special group of well-managed mining companies who
have found success with us in Mexico. We wish them many years of profitable
production and growth in Sonora."
    Mr. Dieterle said the Company is moving forward in a number of areas.
Next on the horizon for Capital Gold's evolution will be the results of the
recently concluded drill campaign. Independent Mining consultants of Tucson,
AZ will be preparing the new proven and probable ore reserve, an updated mine
plan and 43-101 report for the Canadian authorities. It is anticipated this
will all be completed by the end of August. "Now that we have achieved our
goal of gold production at El Chanate, we are not content to rest on our
laurels. We are now looking at other mining properties with a view toward
acquisition. From this point forward we shall be focused on growing Capital
Gold into a mid-tier gold producer," he said.
