HIGH-GRADE CORE FIRMS UP WITHIN GIANT CASINO DEPOSIT

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ - Robert G. Hunter, chairman of Pacific Sentinel Gold Corp. (NASDAQ: PSGVF, Vancouver: PSG) is very pleased to provide an update of results from the on-going drill program at the company's 100 percent owned Casino Copper-Gold-Molybdenum Project, located in southwest Yukon.
 Systematic drilling utilizing six diamond drill rigs continues to expand the deposit in all lateral directions and at depth. To date 112,000 feet in 79 large diameter drill holes have been completed. Detailed results for new holes completed and a drill hole plan map are appended to this release. New results include one of the longest-high grade supergene intercepts to date (Hole 185: 471 feet grading 0.72 percent Cu, 0.40 percent MoS2, and 0.022 oz Au/t-cut). This drilling has indicated a deposit measuring 3,600 feet north-south and 5,000 feet east-west with the limits of mineralization yet to be determined. In addition, drilling continues to delineate a high-grade core within the overall Casino deposit. The high grade core is also open to expansion laterally and to depth. As a preliminary indication of the significance of this high-grade core, Archer Cathro and Associates (1981) Ltd. have calculated a Starter Pit Area-Preliminary Mineral Reserve Estimate based on 37 of the 79 holes drilled to date (Nos. 123-154, 156, 159, 161, 164, 174, 176, 180). The reserve estimate for a starter pit area is:
 STARTER PIT AREA-PRELIMINARY MINERAL RESERVE ESTIMATE
 Tons Cu MoS2 Au
 (million) percent percent (oz/t)
 Leached Cap 27 0.10 0.05 0.021
 Supergene & Hypogene 99 0.40 0.05 0.014
 The Starter Pit Area-Preliminary Mineral Reserve Estimate is calculated to a depth of only 800 feet from surface while the deposit's average depth from surface as indicated by results received to date is 1,400 feet.
 Due to the success of the current drill program, diamond drilling to delineate the ultimate deposit reserves will continue during 1993 and 1994. Casino deposit reserves and its starter pit area reserves will be further updated as drilling progresses. Mine planning, permitting and feasibility engineering will commence in earnest when the Casino deposit has been completely delineated.
 Pacific Sentinel Gold Corp. has spent approximately $5.5 million during 1993 on delineation drilling, environmental baseline studies and geotechnical data collection. The company's current working capital position including the recently announced private placement financing is approximately $8.5 million. These funds should be sufficient to advance the Casino Project to the Prefeasibility Stage.
 The Vancouver Stock Exchange has neither approved nor disapproved the information contained in this news release.
