PART I


ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS


BUSINESS


Pacific Gold Corp. (“Pacific Gold” or “the Company”) is engaged in the identification, acquisition, and development of mining prospects believed to have known gold, tungsten or uranium/vanadium mineral deposits. The main objective is to identify and develop commercially viable mineral deposits on prospects over which the company has rights that could produce revenues. Development of commercially viable mineral deposits of any metal includes a high degree of risk which careful evaluation, experience and factual knowledge may not eliminate, and therefore, we may never produce any significant revenues.


Projects and Royalties


Black Rock Canyon Mine (formerly Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.)


On July 15, 2015 the Company sold all of its interest in Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. and the Black Rock Canyon Mine for the following consideration: $300,000, which was all used to satisfy some of the immediate accounts payable of Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.; $100,000 that was due to the Company on July 15, 2016, of which $54,777 was used to satisfy remaining payroll liabilities taxes; and a royalty of 4% on all Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. gold sales up to a maximum total royalty payments of $720,000. All of the payments are subject to a 10% finder’s fee which has not yet been paid.


Project W (formerly Pilot Mountain Resources Inc.)


Pilot Mountain Resources Inc. (“PMR”) was merged into Pacific Gold Corp. on September 30, 2013.


On February 18, 2014, the Company completed an amendment to its Option and Asset Sale Agreement with Pilot Metals Inc. As amended, instead of $850,000 to be paid on March 31, 2014 and $1,000,000 on the commencement of commercial mining, the Company received $200,000 on February 18, 2014 and received $400,000 on March 31, 2014 with $1,500,000 to be received on the commencement of commercial mining.


The payments made to PMR are subject to a 15% royalty to Platoro West, Inc. All royalty payments have been made.


Graysill Vanadium/Uranium Mining Claims


The Company owns 40 unpatented lode mining claims in San Juan and Dolores Counties, Colorado immediately southeast of Bolam Pass.


Description and Location


The claims are located at an elevation of 11,000 feet above mean sea level and are accessible by a dirt road that is maintained during the summer months by the United States Forest Service. The property, which is referred to as the Graysill Property, encompasses the historic Graysill Mine, a past producer of vanadium and uranium ore. The Graysill Mine is known to have produced vanadium and by-product uranium during a period of approximately twenty years after World War II. Before the mine ceased production, approximately 32,000 tons of ore were mined with a reported grade of 2.41% vanadium pentoxide and 0.09% uranium oxide. In 1989, representatives of the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines Division, examined a number of abandoned mines in the San Juan National Forest, one of which was the Graysill Mine. Subsequently, in 1992, the Bureau of Mines produced a Mineral Land Assessment Open File Report titled "Mineral Appraisal of San Juan National Forest, Colorado". Most of the information relating to the Graysill Mine and the geology and mineralization of the general area within which the Graysill Property is located was obtained from this Open File Report.


The property is underlain by a gently dipping assemblage of Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks within which vanadium and uranium occurs in many of the rock units in a stratabound manner, exhibiting little or no apparent relationship to regional structural trends. Although vanadium and uranium occurrences are ubiquitous and are known to exist in over 20 distinctly different sedimentary units in the vicinity of the property of American Uranium, the Pennsylvanian-Permian Rico Formation and the Upper Jurassic Entrada Sandstone are the only formations which have been mined previously for vanadium and uranium. Most of the past production has come from the Entrada Sandstone. Historically, there have been a number of uraniferous vanadium deposits developed in the Entrada Sandstone along a sinuous trend extending in a north-south direction for over 100 miles. This trend coincides with a major structural feature representing a transitional zone between the Colorado Plateau and the Southern Rocky Mountain physiographic provinces.

History


During the past 50 years, the general region within which the property is located has been subjected to several periods of extensive exploration. The major programs were carried out by Vanadium Corporation of America during the late 1940's and early 1950's, and by Atlas Corporation in the late 1970s. Although the collective efforts of these companies resulted in the discovery and definition of significant, high grade vanadium reserves containing a high incidence of uranium, a major decline in the market for these commodities in the early 1980s eliminated all interest in the area at that time.


Concurrent with the height of exploration, uranium mining in the project area was initiated on a small scale in the 1940s and peaked in the late 1950s. Sporadic production of vanadium and uranium continued into the 1970s. Incomplete production records from the Graysill Mine, the largest producer in the area, indicate that a total of 32,000 tons yielding approximately 52,000 pounds of uranium oxide and in excess of 1.5 million pounds of vanadium pentoxide were produced before the mine ceased operations because of low vanadium and uranium prices.


Regulation


The exploration and development of a mining prospect is subject to regulation by a number of federal and state government authorities. These include the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Bureau of Land Management, as well as the various state environmental protection agencies. The regulations address many environmental issues relating to air, soil and water contamination and apply to many mining related activities including exploration, mine construction, mineral extraction, ore milling, water use, waste disposal and use of toxic substances. In addition, we are subject to regulations relating to labor standards, occupational health and safety, mine safety, general land use, export of minerals and taxation. Many of the regulations require permits or licenses to be obtained and the filing of Notices of Intent and Plans of Operations, the absence of which or inability to obtain will adversely affect the ability for us to conduct our exploration, development and operation activities. The failure to comply with the regulations and terms of permits and licenses may result in fines or other penalties or in revocation of a permit or license or loss of a prospect.


We must comply with the annual staking and patent maintenance requirements of the States of Nevada and Oregon and the United States Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”). We must also comply with the filing requirements of our proposed exploration and development, including Notices of Intent and Plans of Operations. In connection with our exploration and assessment activities, we have pursued necessary permits where exemptions have not been available although, to date, most of these activities have been done under various exemptions.  We will need to file for water use and other extractive-related permits in the future.


Competition


We expect to compete with many mining and exploration companies in identifying and acquiring claims with gold mineral deposit. We believe that most of our competitors have greater resources than us. We also expect to compete for qualified geological and environmental experts to assist us in our exploration of mining prospects, as well as any other consultants, employees and equipment that we may require in order to conduct our operations. We cannot give any assurances that we will be able to compete without adequate financial resources.


Employees


Pacific Gold has one employee who is the executive officer. From time to time we hire heavy machinery operators, geological experts, engineers and other operations consultants and independent contractors and laborers, for differing periods to facilitate the implementation of our business plan.

ITEM 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASE OF EQUITY SECURITIES


Market for Common Stock


The common stock is traded in the over-the-counter market and quoted on the OTC Markets under the symbol "PCFG".


Our common shares are designated as “penny stock”.  The SEC has adopted rules (Rules 15g-2 through l5g-6 of the Exchange Act), which regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks.”  Penny stocks generally are any non-NASDAQ equity securities with a price of less than $5.00, subject to certain exceptions.  The penny stock rules require a broker-­dealer to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, to provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account, to make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction.  These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity, if any, in the secondary market for a stock that is subject to the penny stock rules.  Since our common shares are subject to the penny stock rules, persons holding or receiving such shares may find it more difficult to sell their shares.  The market liquidity for the shares could be severely and adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell the shares and the ability of shareholders to sell their stock in any secondary market.


The trading volume in the common stock has been and is extremely limited. The limited nature of the trading market can create the potential for significant changes in the trading price for the common stock as a result of relatively minor changes in the supply and demand for common stock and perhaps without regard to our business activities.


The market price of our common stock may be subject to significant fluctuations in response to numerous factors, including: variations in our annual or quarterly financial results or those of our competitors; conditions in the economy in general; announcements of key developments by competitors; loss of key personnel; unfavorable publicity affecting our industry or us; adverse legal events affecting us; and sales of our common stock by existing stockholders.


Subject to the above limitations, we believe that during the eight fiscal quarters preceding the date of this filing, the high and low sales prices for the common stock during each quarter are as set forth in the table below (such prices are without retail mark-up, mark-down, or commissions):

Dividends


We have not paid any cash dividends to date. We can give no assurance that our proposed operations will result in sufficient revenues to enable profitable operations or to generate positive cash flow. For the foreseeable future, we anticipate that we will use any funds available to finance the growth of our operations and that we will not pay cash dividends to stockholders. The payment of cash dividends, if any, in the future is within the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on our earnings, capital requirements, restrictions imposed by lenders and financial condition and other relevant factors.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION


Forward Looking Statements


From time to time, we or our representatives have made or may make forward-looking statements, orally or in writing. Such forward-looking statements may be included in, but not limited to, press releases, oral statements made with the approval of an authorized executive officer or in various filings made by us with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Words or phrases "will likely result", "are expected to", "will continue", "is anticipated", "estimate", "project or projected", or similar expressions are intended to identify "forward-looking statements". Such statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to and are accompanied by the above discussion of certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements.


Management is currently unaware of any trends or conditions other than those mentioned in this management's discussion and analysis that could have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial position, future results of operations, or liquidity. However, investors should also be aware of factors that could have a negative impact on the Company's prospects and the consistency of progress in the areas of revenue generation, liquidity, and generation of capital resources. These include: (i) variations in revenue, (ii) possible inability to attract investors for its equity securities or otherwise raise adequate funds from any source should the Company seek to do so, (iii) increased governmental regulation, (iv) increased competition, (v) unfavorable outcomes to litigation involving the Company or to which the Company may become a party in the future and (vi) a very competitive and rapidly changing operating environment.


The risks identified here are not all inclusive. New risk factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all of such risk factors, nor can it assess the impact of all such risk factors on the Company's business or the extent to which any factor or combination of factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results.


The financial information set forth in the following discussion should be read with the financial statements of Pacific Gold included elsewhere herein.


Financial Condition and Changes in Financial Condition


Overall Operating Results:


The Company had no revenues from the sale of gold for the year ended December 31, 2015.


Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2015 totaled $393,716.  Executive salaries incurred were $48,000 for the year.  Legal and professional fees of $112,995 were incurred for services performed with respect to acquisitions and mining prospect evaluation, as well as SEC reporting compliance and accounting fees. The Company also incurred expenses related to geological studies, fieldwork, site visits, preparation of mining permit applications and consulting fees of $5,850. Advertising and public relations expenses totaled $114.  Interest expense totaled $244,144 for the year for interest accrued on debt and interest expensed for late fees on trade payables. The remaining expenses relate to office, general administrative and stock transfer agent fees. We believe we will incur substantial expenses for the near term with our evaluations of future mining prospects.


The Company had no revenues from the sale of gold for the year ended December 31, 2014.


Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2014 totaled $677,122.  The Company incurred labor costs associated with the various mining activities.  Labor costs were $192,346 for the year.  Equipment operating costs, tools and materials of $7,774, were incurred primarily to maintain the plant and equipment at Black Rock Canyon.  Legal and professional fees of $121,917 were incurred for services performed with respect to acquisitions and mining prospect evaluation, as well as SEC reporting compliance and accounting fees. The Company also incurred expenses related to geological studies, fieldwork, site visits, preparation of mining permit applications and consulting fees of $42,632. Advertising and public relations expenses totaled $1,579.  Interest expense totaled $499,687 for the year; of this amount, $262,474 was a non-cash expense that included amounts for interest on the Convertible Debentures that were not paid out in cash, $237,213 was interest accrued on debt and interest expensed for late fees on trade payables. The remaining expenses relate to office, general administrative and stock transfer agent fees. We believe we will incur substantial expenses for the near term as we build up operations at the Black Rock Canyon Mine and progress with our evaluations of future mining prospects.


Liquidity and Capital Resources:


Since inception to December 31, 2015, we have funded our operations from the sale of securities, issuance of debt and loans from a shareholder.



8





As of December 31, 2015, our assets totaled $45,358, which consisted of $45,223 receivable from the sale of Nevada Rae Gold, Inc, and $135 in cash. Our total liabilities were $3,102,198 which primarily consisted of related parties’ notes payable of $1,887,876, accounts payable and accrued expenses of $641,005, and promissory notes of $265,000. We had an accumulated deficit of $47,675,865 and a working capital deficit of $595,647 at December 31, 2015.


As of December 31, 2015, Pacific Gold owes $1,248,376 in principal and $121,269 in accrued interest to a company owned by the Chief Executive Officer. The amount due is represented by a promissory note accruing interest at 10% per year. The note is due on June 30, 2019 and is convertible into shares of common stock of Pacific Gold at $0.0001 per share. For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company received $101,872 in additional proceeds and have paid $18,496 towards the balance. The note is presented net of $312,500 in discount.


As of December 31, 2015, Pacific Gold owes a total of $952,000 in principal and $146,295 in accrued interest to a related party of our Chief Executive Officer. The amount due is represented by promissory notes accruing interest at 10% per year and due on June 30, 2019 and is convertible into shares of common stock of Pacific Gold at $0.01 per share.


Our independent auditors, in their report on the consolidated financial statements, have indicated that the Company has experienced recurring losses from operations and may not have enough cash and working capital to fund its operations beyond the very near term, which raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management has made a similar note in the consolidated financial statements.  As indicated herein, we need capital for the implementation of our business plan, and we will need additional capital for continuing our operations.  We do not have sufficient revenues to pay our expenses of operations.  Unless the company is able to raise working capital, it is likely that the Company either will have to cease operations or substantially change its methods of operations or change its business plan.


New Accounting Pronouncements


Pacific Gold does not expect the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on the Company, or any of its subsidiaries’ operating results, financial position, or cash flow.


Critical Accounting Principals


The Company follows Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 470-20, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options, to account for its convertible debentures.  The Company records a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”) related to the issuance of convertible debt that have conversion features at fixed or adjustable rates and records the fair value of warrants issued with those instruments.  The BCF for the convertible instruments is recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds to warrants and as a reduction to the carrying amount of the convertible instrument equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion features, both of which are credited to paid-in-capital.  The Company calculates fair value using the Black-Scholes valuation method using assumptions pertinent to the warrants or convertible note.


The derivative liability related to convertible notes arises because the conversion price of the Company’s convertible notes is discounted from the market price of the Company’s common stock.  Thus, the number of shares that may be issued upon conversion of such notes is indeterminate, which gives rise to the possibility that the Company may not be able to fully settle its convertible note and warrant obligations by the issuance of common stock.  The Company has adjusted the derivative liability to fair value at each reporting date using the Black-Scholes valuation model.  Adjustments in fair value arising because of changes in the market conditions are recorded as a gain or loss.  To the extent the derivative liability is reduced as a consequence of the conversion of notes, such reduction is recognized as additional paid-in-capital.


The Company records stock-based compensation according to the provisions of ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, which requires fair value compensation cost relating to share based payments be recognized in the financial statements. Fair value is measured at the grant date and recorded at the fair value of the award.  Stock options are measured using the Black-Scholes valuation model.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM



To the Board of Directors and Stockholders

Pacific Gold Corp.


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Pacific Gold Corp. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2015, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the year then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Pacific Gold Corp. as of December 31, 2015, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 11, the Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flow from operations since inception.  These factors, and the need for additional financing in order for the Company to meet its business plans, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Pacific Gold Corp.


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Pacific Gold Corp. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2014, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Pacific Gold Corp. for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 11 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has negative working capital and has incurred losses from operations.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans with regard to these matters are described in Note 11. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Pacific Gold Corp.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

December 31, 2015 and 2014


NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION


Pacific Gold Corp. (“Pacific Gold” or “the Company”) was originally incorporated in Nevada on December 31, 1996 under the name of Demand Financial International, Ltd.  On October 3, 2002, Demand Financial International, Ltd. changed its name to Blue Fish Entertainment, Inc.  On August 5, 2003, the name was changed to Pacific Gold Corp. Pacific Gold is engaged in the identification, acquisition, and development of prospects believed to have gold, vanadium, uranium, and tungsten mineral deposits. Pacific Gold currently owns mining claims and royalties on mining property in Nevada and Colorado.


Basis of Presentation


These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and are expressed in U.S. dollars. The Company's fiscal year-end is December 31.


Principle of Consolidation


The consolidated financial statements include all of the accounts of Pacific Gold Corp.,and its wholly-owned subsidiary Fernley Gold, Inc. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated.


Reclassification of Accounts


Certain accounts in the prior period have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.


Significant Accounting Principles


Use of Estimates and Assumptions


The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, (ii) the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements are published, and (iii) the reported amount of net sales, expenses and costs recognized during the periods presented. Adjustments made with respect to the use of estimates often relate to improved information not previously available. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumptions are inherent in the preparation of consolidated financial statements; accordingly, actual results could differ from these estimates.


Cash and Cash Equivalents


The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  At December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 cash includes cash on hand and cash in the bank.


Revenue Recognition


Pacific Gold recognizes revenue from the sale of minerals when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services have been rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collection is reasonably assured, which is determined when it places a sale order of gold from its inventory on hand with the refinery.


Property and Equipment


Property and equipment are valued at cost.  Additions are capitalized and maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Gains and losses on dispositions of equipment are reflected in operations.  Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are 2 to 10 years.




F-7




Mineral Rights


All mine-related costs, other than acquisition costs, are expensed prior to the establishment of proven or probable reserves. Reserves designated as proven and probable are supported by a final feasibility study, indicating that the reserves have had the requisite geologic, technical and economic work performed and are legally extractable at the time of reserve determination.  Once proven or probable reserves are established, all development and other site-specific costs are capitalized.


Capitalized development costs and production facilities are depleted using the units-of-production method based on the estimated gold which can be recovered from the ore reserves processed.  

Lease development costs for non-producing properties are amortized over their remaining lease term if limited.  Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.


As per Industry Guide 7, there are no proven or probable reserves as of December 31, 2015.


Impairment of Long-Lived Assets


The Company reviews the carrying value of its long-lived assets annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost-carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. Pacific Gold assesses recoverability of the carrying value of the asset by estimating the undiscounted future net cash flows, which depend on estimates of metals to be recovered from proven and probable ore reserves, and also identified resources beyond proven and probable reserves, future production costs and future metals prices over the estimated remaining mine life.  If undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value of a property, an impairment loss is recognized based upon the estimated expected future net cash flows from the property discounted at an interest rate commensurate with the risk involved.  If the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset’s carrying value and fair value.


The fair value of an asset retirement obligation is recognized in the period in which it is incurred if a reasonable estimate of fair value can be made. The present value of the estimated asset retirement costs is capitalized as part of the carrying amount of the long-lived asset. For Pacific Gold, asset retirement obligations primarily relate to the abandonment of ore-producing property and facilities.


The Company reviews the carrying value of its interest in each group of mineral claims owned by its subsidiaries on an annual basis to determine whether impairment has incurred in the claim value. The Company evaluates the mineral claim values based on one of four criteria; cash flow projection, geological reports, asset sale and option agreements, and comparative market analysis including public market value. Where information and conditions suggest impairment, the Company writes-down these properties to the lowest estimated value based on its evaluation criteria. The estimate of gold price, mineralized materials, operating capital, and reclamation costs are subject to risks and uncertainties affecting the recoverability of investment in property and equipment.


Where estimates of future net operating cash flows are not available and where other conditions suggest impairment, the Company assesses if the carrying value can be recovered from net cash flows generated by the sale of the asset or other means.


Income Taxes


In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 740, Income Taxes, Pacific Gold recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities based on differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using the enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to be recovered.  


Loss per Share


The basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss adjusted on an “as if converted” basis, by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus potential dilutive securities.  For the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, potential dilutive securities had an anti-dilutive effect and were not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per common share. As of December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company had 18,203,179,400 and 28,388,473,000, respectively, of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents.




F-8




Advertising


The Company’s policy is to expense advertising costs as incurred. For the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company incurred $114 and $1,578, respectively, in advertising costs.


Environmental Remediation Liability


At December 31, 2014, the Company had posted a bond with the State of Nevada in the amount required by the State of Nevada equal to the maximum cost to reclaim land disturbed in its mining process.  The bond required a quarterly premium to be paid to the State of Nevada Division of Minerals. The Bond is no longer required as the Company has sold Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.


Convertible Debentures


Convertible debt is accounted for under ASC 470-20, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options.  The Company records a beneficial conversion feature (BCF) related to the issuance of convertible debt that have conversion features at fixed or adjustable rates that are in-the-money when issued and records the fair value of warrants issued with those instruments. The BCF for the convertible instruments is recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds to warrants and as a reduction to the carrying amount of the convertible instrument equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion features, both of which are credited to paid-in-capital. The Company calculates the fair value of warrants issued with the convertible instruments using the Black-Scholes valuation method, using the same assumptions used for valuing employee options for purposes of following ASC Topic 718 Compensation – Stock Compensation, except that the contractual life of the warrant is used. Under these guidelines, the Company allocates the value of the proceeds received from a convertible debt transaction between the conversion feature and any other detachable instruments (such as warrants) on a relative fair value basis. The allocated fair value is recorded as a debt discount or premium and is amortized over the expected term of the convertible debt to interest expense. For a conversion price change of a convertible debt issue, the additional intrinsic value of the debt conversion feature, calculated as the number of additional shares issuable due to a conversion price change multiplied by the previous conversion price, is recorded as additional debt discount and amortized over the remaining life of the debt.


The Company accounts for modifications of its Embedded Conversion Features in accordance with ASC 470-50, Debt – Modifications and Extinguishments, which requires the modification of a convertible debt instrument that changes the fair value of an embedded conversion feature and the subsequent recognition of interest expense or the associated debt instrument when the modification does not result in a debt extinguishment pursuant to ASC 470-50-40, Debt – Modification and Extinguishments – Derecognition.


Stock Based Compensation


The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation which requires that the fair value compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the consolidated financial statements.   Share-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the fair value of the award, and is recognized over the employee’s requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period.   The fair value of the Company’s stock options is estimated using a Black-Scholes option valuation model. There were no stock options granted during the years ended December 31, 2015 or 2014.


Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements


The Company does not expect the adoption of any other recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on its results of operations, financial position or cash flow.


NOTE 2 – MINERAL RIGHTS


Nevada Rae Gold


On July 15, 2015, the Company sold all of its interest in Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. and the Black Rock Canyon Mine for the following consideration; $300,000, which was all used to satisfy some of the immediate accounts payable of Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.; $100,000 due to the Company on July 15, 2016, of which $54,777 was used to satisfy remaining payroll liabilities taxes; and a royalty of 4% on all Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. gold sales up to a maximum total royalty payments of $720,000. All of the payments are subject to a 10% finder’s fee which has not yet been paid.




F-9

As of December 31, 2015, there was a principal balance of $265,000 and $41,088 in accrued interest and is convertible into shares of common stock of Pacific Gold at $0.01 per share.


NOTE 7 – INCOME TAXES


Pacific Gold uses the asset/liability method, where deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial and income tax reporting purposes.  During 2015 and 2014, Pacific Gold incurred net losses and, therefore, had no tax liability.  The net deferred tax asset generated by the loss carry-forward has been fully reserved.  The cumulative net operating loss carry-forward is $12,523,516 at December 31, 2015, and will expire in the years 2029 through 2035.


Net operating loss carry forwards expire according to the following:

A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. Because of the lack of taxable earnings history, the Company has established a valuation allowance for all future deductible net operating loss carry forwards. The valuation allowance has changed by $40,963 from December 31, 2014.

There are no adjustments to deferred tax assets or liabilities for material uncertain tax positions on returns that have been filed or that will be filed. The Company continues to incur large net operating losses as disclosed above.  Since it is not certain that these net operating loss carry forwards will ever produce a tax benefit, even if examined by taxing authorities and disallowed entirely, there would be no effect on the consolidated financial statements.


The Company has filed income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction.


The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses. During the years ended December 31, 2015, and 2014, the Company recognized no interest and penalties. The Company had no payments of interest and penalties accrued at December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.


NOTE 8 – COMMON STOCK AND PREFERRED STOCK


In the year ended December 31, 2015, 625,000,000 shares of common stock were issued in exchange for $62,500 of interest on a related party convertible promissory note.


For the year ended December 31, 2014, 3,499,064,577 common shares were issued for $354,344 in principal and $9,084 in interest on the convertible notes.


NOTE 9 – OPERATING LEASES


All of the Company’s operating leases were held by its former subsidiary Nevada Rae Gold, Inc. and as such the Company currently has no future operating lease commitments.


NOTE 10 – LEGAL PROCEEDINGS


From time to time the Company is involved in minor trade, employment and other operational disputes, none of which have or are expected to have a material impact on the current or future consolidated financial statements or operations.


NOTE 11 – GOING CONCERN


The Company’s financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $47,675,865, negative working capital of $595,647, and negative operating cash flows from the year ended December 31, 2015 of $167,653, raising substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company financed its operations through the sale of securities, sale of its Nevada Rae Gold subsidiary and the issuance of debt.


Management’s plan to address the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern includes obtaining additional funding from the sale of the Company’s securities and establishing revenues.  Although management believes that it will be able to obtain the necessary funding to allow the Company to remain a going concern through the methods discussed above, there can be no assurances that such methods will prove successful. Should we be unsuccessful, the Company may need to discontinue its operations.


NOTE 12 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


The Company evaluated subsequent events through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued.

ITEM 9.  CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE


N/A


ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls


Our management evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2015. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files and submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2015, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.


(b) Management’s Responsibility for Financial Statements


Our management is responsible for the integrity and objectivity of all information presented in this report. The consolidated financial statements were prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and include amounts based on management’s best estimates and judgments. Management believes the consolidated financial statements fairly reflect the form and substance of transactions and that the financial statements fairly represent the Company’s condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations for the periods and as of the dates stated therein.


(c) Management’s Assessment of Internal Control over Financial Reporting


The Company management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined by Rules 13a–15(f) and 15(d)-15(f) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934.  This system is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted accounting principles.


Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements. Because of its inherent limitations, a system of internal control over financial reporting can only provide reasonable assurance and may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Further, because of changes in conditions, effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting may vary over time.


Under the direction of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, management evaluated the effectiveness of the system of internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control-Integrated Framework, published by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).  Management is aware that there is a lack of segregation of duties due to the small number of employees dealing with general administrative and financial matters. However, at this time management has decided that taking into account the abilities of the employees now involved, the control procedures in place and its awareness of the issues presented, the risks associated with such lack of segregation are low and the potential benefits of adding employees to clearly segregate duties do not justify the substantial expenses associated with such increases. Management will periodically reevaluate this situation and report to the registered public accounting firm to the Company about this condition.   Based on our overall controls, and taking into account the reporting and interaction by our Board of Directors, management determined that the Company’s system of internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2015.


(d) Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm


This annual report does not include an attestation report of the company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the company’s registered public accounting firm.

PART III


ITEM 10.  DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE;


The following table sets forth information concerning the directors and executive officers of Pacific Gold Corp. and their ages and positions. Each director holds office until the next annual stockholders' meeting and thereafter until the individual's successor is elected and qualified. Officers serve at the pleasure of the board of directors.

Robert Landau

Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President and Chairman


Mr. Robert Landau has been the President, Chief Executive Officer Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Board of Pacific Gold Corp. since April 2005. Mr. Landau also works as a consultant advising other non-mining companies on mergers and acquisitions. He has a Bachelor of Commerce - Actuarial Science and Finance degree from the University of Toronto. Mr. Landau is responsible for the strategic direction of the Company.


During the last five years, no officers or directors have been involved in any legal proceedings, bankruptcy proceedings, and criminal proceedings or violated any federal or state securities or commodities laws or engaged in any activity that would limit their involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities.


COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 16(a) OF THE EXCHANGE ACT


Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires the Company’s directors and executive officers, and persons who own more than ten percent of an SEC registered class of the Company’s equity securities, to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of common stock and other equity securities of the Company. Officers, directors and greater than ten percent stockholders are required by SEC regulation to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.


To the Company’s knowledge, based solely on a review of the copies of such reports furnished to the Company or filed on Edgar, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors and greater than ten percent beneficial owners were complied with.


AUDIT COMMITTEE AND FINANCIAL EXPERT


We are not required to have and we do not have an Audit Committee. The Company's directors perform some of the same functions of an Audit Committee, such as recommending a firm of independent certified public accountants to audit the financial statements; reviewing the auditors' independence, the financial statements and their audit report; and reviewing management's administration of the system of internal accounting controls. The Company does not currently have a written audit committee charter or similar document.


We have no audit committee financial expert. Our directors have financial statement preparation and interpretation ability obtained over the years from past business experience and education. We believe the cost related to retaining a financial expert at this time is prohibitive. Further, because of the nature of our current limited operations, we believe the services of a financial expert are not warranted.


CODE OF ETHICS


A code of ethics relates to written standards that are reasonably designed to deter wrongdoing and to promote:


1)

Honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships.


2)

Full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that are filed with, or submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission and in other public communications made by the Company.


3)

Compliance with applicable government laws, rules and regulations.




12




4)

The prompt internal reporting of violations of the code to an appropriate person or persons identified in the code; and,


5)

Accountability for adherence to the code.


We have not adopted a formal code of ethics statement. The board of directors evaluated the business of the Company and the number of employees and determined that since the business is operated by a small number of persons who are also the officers and directors and many of the persons employed by the Company are independent contractors, general rules of fiduciary duty and federal and state criminal, business conduct and securities laws are adequate ethical guidelines.

Overview of Compensation Program and Philosophy


The Company has two executive officers, whom are also the Company’s directors. The Board of Directors serves as the Company’s compensation committee and initiates and approves most compensation decisions. Annual bonuses, if any, for executives are determined by the Board of Directors.


The goal of the compensation program is to adequately reward the efforts and achievements of executive officers for the management of the Company.  The Company has no pension plan and no deferred compensation arrangements.  The Company has not used a compensation consultant in any capacity.


The executive officers of the Company do not currently have employment agreements with the Company that outline salary and benefit arrangements. Both officers are paid a gross base amount per month. The salary amounts are reviewed on an annual basis.


Compensation of Directors


Persons who are directors and employees are not currently additionally compensated for their services as a director.  There is no plan in place for compensation of persons who are directors who are not employees, but it is expected that in the future we will create a remuneration and expense reimbursement plan. It is anticipated that such a plan would be primarily based on stock options.


Other Compensation Arrangements


On June 20, 2007, the Company received consents from a majority of the shares entitled to vote, approving the 2007 Equity Performance Plan which provides for the issuance of common stock awards of up to 20,000,000 shares in aggregate.  The company filed with the SEC and distributed on April 25, 2007 an Information Statement to invite all shareholders to vote on the Plan in accordance with state and federal law.  At December 31, 2015, we have issued 6,598 shares under the 2007 Plan.


On December 28, 2005, the Company received consents from shareholders of 17,877,382 shares, representing a majority of the shares entitled to vote, approving the 2006 Equity Performance Plan which provides for the issuance of common stock awards of up to 10,000,000 shares in aggregate.  The company filed with the SEC and distributed on January 10, 2006 an Information Statement to the shareholders who had not given their consent in accordance with state and federal law. We issued 834 common shares under this plan during 2008, 1982 during 2007, and 846 common shares under this plan during 2006.  At December 31, 2015, we have issued 3,662 shares under the 2006 Plan.




13




On September 11, 2013, the company received consents from a majority of the shares entitled to vote, approving the 2013 Equity Performance Plan which provides the issuance of common stock awards of up to 50,000,000 shares in aggregate. Upon approval of the 2013 plan both the 2006 Plan and the 2007 Plan were terminated and no additional grants were to be made under those plans. As of December 31, 2015, no shares have been issued.


Employment Agreements


We currently have no employment agreements with any of our executive officers, nor any compensatory plans or arrangements resulting from the resignation, retirement or any other termination of any of our executive officers, from a change-in-control, or from a change in any executive officer’s responsibilities following a change-in-control. Our executive officers are compensated on a monthly basis for services performed for the company and its subsidiary.
