Coastal Gold Provides Corporate Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- COASTAL GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE: COD)(FRANKFURT: CY41) (the "Company") provides the following corporate update:

Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo., President & CEO of Coastal Gold, commented: "Over the past year, in spite of the difficult market conditions, we have substantially advanced our Hope Brook Gold Project. On December 4, 2013 we released an updated mineral resource estimate that increased the indicated resource by 110% to 1,239,000 ounces of gold with an additional 138,000 ounces of gold in the inferred category. The overall grade of the indicated resource was increased by 30.2%. In addition, on January 16, 2014 we released an inferred tailings resource of 134,500 ounces and 9.5 million pounds copper. We have identified a number of exploration targets both near surface and underground with good potential to further expand mineral resources."

Dr. Pearson continued "These new resource estimates have formed the basis for a preliminary economic assessment (PEA). Work completed on the PEA has focused on the potential production from tailings, open pit and underground at a rate of 5,000 tonnes per day. While we have made good progress, further engineering work is needed to finalize the study. Coastal Gold has elected to suspend work on the PEA to conserve cash and wait for market conditions to improve."
