Blue Fish Entertainment, Inc. announces test program of Defiance mining claims in south-western Oregon, USA.

TORONTO, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Fish Entertainment, Inc. (OTCBB: BFSH) announced today that, through its recently acquired mineral exploration and mining company, Oregon Gold, it has completed a sampling and trenching program on the Defiance gold claims. The sampling program was undertaken during the months of June and July, this year.

The Company's program included cutting of two large trenches across the width of the Defiance claims and then following up with a series of smaller sample pits from other benches and claims. All of the gravel materials were processed at the on-site plant, and the Company recovered just under 9 ounces of gold, consisting of fine gold and coarse nuggets, including one that weighed over a 1/3 of an ounce.

Additional sampling, including the super fines, platinum content, and gold fineness, recovered during the program are being analyzed by SGS Lakefield laboratory, and the Company is awaiting a detailed report on the sampling program from its consulting geologist.
 Additional details of the program are summarized below.
 Trenching Program


The Company determined the best approach to test the bench deposits of gold bearing gravels was by cutting trenches across the bench, down to bedrock. The gravels were excavated from the trench, transported to the plant, and processed to extract the gold and platinum. Based on the measurements, estimates of gravel volumes and grades could be extrapolated.

Trench No. 1 is located in a southeast direction, perpendicular to the bench and immediately north of the plant site. The area had been partially disturbed, and the upper gravels had been removed. The eastern part of the bench consisted of a 20-25 foot section of colluvial material, which had eroded off the hillside.

The trench was continuous, but samples were separated into sections ranging from as little as 10 feet, all the way to 50 feet in length, depending on the thickness of gravels.

The gravel section was excavated in two lifts, which separated the top lower-grade gravels (5-8 feet), from the lower, high-grade gravels (5-8 feet).

The trench was 255 feet long, averaged 6 feet wide, and 12.1 feet deep. Of this approximate 12-foot section of gravel, the bottom 6.6 feet was found to be higher grade, and was processed separately from the top 5.5 feet.

Trench No. 2 is located 300 feet north of Trench No. 1, and was orientated parallel to it, in a southeast direction. This area had not been previously disturbed other than to remove the vegetation. The excavation equipment was first used to strip off the upper colluvial material prior to exposing the alluvial gravels. The same procedure used in Trench No. 1 was used in Trench No. 2, and the upper alluvial gravels were separated from the lower gravels, or bedrock interface.

Trench No. 2 was 98 feet long, 6 feet wide, and averaged 14.4 feet of alluvial gravels, with the bottom 6.9 feet of gravels producing the higher- grade results.

Regional Sampling Program

A regional sampling program was undertaken to test the resource on the permitted Defiance No. 2 claim. In addition to testing this resource, samples were taken on several other benches on the claimed areas to test these resources. Due to time restraints, smaller samples were taken and processed solely with the Knelson Bowl, feeding the material through a small shaker screen by hand.

The results of the program indicate that gold is widespread throughout the bench gravels along Josephine Creek, specifically upon claims being acquired by the Company, and claims recently staked by the Company.

About the Company

The Company's business plan includes the acquisition and development of production-ready or in-production mining operations concentrating on gold recovery. The Company is interested in alluvial, or placer operations, located in the western United States and Canada. Oregon Gold has staked eight mining claims and is in the process of acquiring an additional 15 claims. Two of these claims are currently permitted and producing.

In conjunction with the recent acquisition of Oregon Gold and the placer mining claims in Oregon, Blue Fish Entertainment, Inc. is changing its name to Pacific Gold Corp., in order to better reflect its business.
