Capital Gold Production Ramps Up Quickly at El Chanate Mine

    2,500 Ounces of Gold Produced in August

    NEW YORK, Aug. 30 /CNW/ -- Capital Gold (TSX: CGC; OTC Bulletin Board:  
CGLD) said today that the second shipment of dore gold has been sent to the
refinery.  This shipment of over 2,500 ounces of gold represents production
for the first 21 days of August. So far, the total mine production for the
first 26 days of production, is 3,175 ounces of gold.
    John Brownlie, Chief Operating Officer for Capital Gold says, "We are
close to the feasibility study production levels of 7,500 tonnes per day (tpd)
and 4,000 ounces of gold produced per month, which equates to 48,000 ounces of
production annually. Once those levels are met we will slowly start to ramp up
daily tonnage levels from 7,500 (tpd) up to 10,000 tpd. This should boost our
gold production toward 5,000 ounces per month and over 60,000 ounces per
year."  Brownlie adds:  "Right now, our cash costs to produce an ounce of gold
are inline with those stated in the feasibility study, or approximately $260
per ounce. But only after we've operated for several months will we have a
more exact number."
    We anticipate the results of the recently concluded drill campaign will
be available during the first week of September. 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.
