TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2009) - Bison Gold Resources Inc. (CNSX:BGE) ("Bison Gold" or the "Company) is pleased to report that drilling has commenced on the company's 100% owned Central Manitoba gold property. Contractor Wynne Drilling Ltd. of Bissett, Manitoba, has mobilized one drill to the property, and a second is expected to be added in September.

This diamond drill program is anticipated to be a minimum of 7,000m with 4,500m in the area of the Central Manitoba mine and 2,500m at the nearby Ogama-Rockland mine site, as recommended in the company's recently issued NI 43-101 document (see www.sedar.com). Drilling at the Central Manitoba mine will follow up on the company's 2008 discoveries, both east and west of the Tene shaft, and test other targets along this 3km shear zone system.

Upon completion of the Central Manitoba drilling, Bison Gold plans to undertake a 1,000m drill program on the company's 100% owned Cryderman gold property, located 8 km north of the Central Manitoba.
