CERTIFICATION OF INTERIM FILINGS
I, Gary Freeman, the Chief Executive Officer of Pediment Gold Corp., certify the following:
Review: I have reviewed the interim financial statements and interim MD&A (together, the “interim filings”) of
Pediment Gold Corp. (the “issuer”) for the interim period ended June 30, 2010 .
No misrepresentations: Based on my knowledge, having exercised reasonable diligence, the interim filings do not
contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated or that is
necessary to make a statement not misleading in light of the circumstances under which it was made, with respect
to the period covered by the interim filings.
Fair presentation: Based on my knowledge, having exercised reasonable diligence, the interim financial
statements together with the other financial information included in the interim filings fairly present in all material
respects the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the issuer, as of the date of and for the
periods presented in the interim filings.
Responsibility: The issuer’s other certifying officer(s) and I are responsible for establishing and maintaining
disclosure controls and procedures (DC&P) and internal control over financial reporting (ICFR), as those terms are
defined in National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings , for the
Design: Subject to the limitations, if any, described in paragraphs 5.2 and 5.3, the issuer’s other certifying officer(s)
and I have, as at the end of the period covered by the interim filings
designed DC&P, or caused it to be designed under our supervision, to provide reasonable assurance that
material information relating to the issuer is made known to us by others, particularly during the
period in which the interim filings are being prepared; and
