GIANT COPPER-GOLD-MOLYBDENUM DEPOSIT PROVING UP AT CASINO; DRILL PROGRAM EXPANDED

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert G. Hunter, chairman of Pacific Sentinel Gold Corp. (Vancouver: PSG) announced compiled results for all large-diameter core holes drilled at the company's 100 percent-owned Casino Copper-Gold-Molybdenum Project, located in southwest Yukon.
 Ongoing drilling is proving up a massive size open pit deposit at Casino. To date, 60,241 feet in 44 large-diameter drill holes have been completed. This drilling has indicated a deposit measuring 3,600 feet north-south and 5,000 feet east-west with the deposit open to further extension in all lateral directions. In addition, 10 of the first holes drilled bottomed in mineralization and are being extended. Deepening of these holes is expected to extend the deposit to depth. Extensive high grade zones exist within the deposit. Averaged results for mineralized holes drilled within the current deposit area are:
 Interval Copper MoS2 Gold
 Zone (Feet) (pct) (pct) (oz/ton)
 Leached 264 0.07 0.040 0.013
 Supergene 169 0.48 0.049 0.014
 Supergene
 plus Hypogene 823 0.30 0.044 0.010
 Detailed results for all holes drilled along with a Drill Hole Location Map are appended to this release.
 The 1993 Casino Program budget has been expanded to $10.2 million and constitutes Canada's largest mineral development program. Six drills and over 60 personnel are at work at the Casino development site. Drilling, geotechnical, environmental, socioeconomic and metallurgical studies will be continuously ongoing until late this year. Further results will be announced as they become available.
 The Yukon government has pledged to do everything in its power to enable its mining industry to flourish and has established excellent relations with the company. Recently John Ostashek, government leader, and John Devries, Minister of Economic Development, Mines and Small Business, along with other senior government officials visited the Casino site to review the massive project on a first hand basis. A mine, the size anticipated at Casino would form the backbone of the Yukon's economy.
