News Release: Nevada Pacific Gold to Initiate 25,000 Feet of Drilling on Keystone, Amador Canyon and Limousine Butte

Nevada Pacific Gold Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange - Symbol NPG) is pleased to announce that the Company is finalizing a 20,000 foot reverse circulation drilling contract with Layne Christensen Company and negotiating a 5,000 foot core drilling contract with Boart Longyear Company. Extensive drill programs are scheduled to begin in mid-April on three of the company's Nevada properties; the Amador Canyon, Keystone and Limousine Butte projects. The total budget is estimated to be US$500,000.

Permits for the Amador Canyon drill program are expected to be granted during the first week of April at which time construction of the drill roads and drill sites will begin. Drilling is expected to commence by mid-April. The property has never been drill tested so this initial program will consist of 10,000 feet of reverse circulation drilling designed to test disseminated sulphide silver mineralization targeted by surface mapping, geochemistry and data collected from a recently completed geophysical survey.

The remaining 10,000 feet of reverse circulation drilling will be divided between the Company's Limousine Butte and Keystone properties. In addition to the reverse circulation contract, a core drilling program of five thousand feet is also planned for these two projects. Three thousand feet of core drilling will test the massive sulfide target area at Keystone with the remaining two thousand feet testing the high-grade structure and resource area at Limousine Butte.

Drilling on all three projects is anticipated to continue until approximately mid-July. Details and results of the programs will be discussed as data is received.
