Bullion River Gold Corp. Announces the Completion of a New 43-101 Compliant Technical Report and Updates on Its French Gulch Mine

Mill grades increase to over 0.7 oz/ton

RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2007) - Bullion River Gold Corp. (OTCBB:BLRV) announces that an update to the previously completed Technical Report for the French Gulch operation, which conforms to NI 43-101 guidelines, has been completed and the previously reported resource estimate has been exceeded due to newly gathered information during the mining operation. The update was completed by Mr. John Jenks, an independent Qualified Person as described in NI 43-101, in conjunction with Bullion River Gold Corp. geological personnel. The resources reflect the inclusion of newly discovered vein structures in the Washington Vein Zone and an improvement of resource categories.

Resources Calculated:

Tonnage Grade Gold
Category: (t) (oz/ton) (oz)
Measured: 13,480 0.87 11,720
Indicated: 206,730 0.88 182,730

Total (Measured and Indicated) 220,210 0.88 194,450

Inferred 82,783 1.28 105,985

Furthermore, a calculated NPV (Net Present Value) of $38,318,764 has been established, taking into consideration the value of a 250 tons/day mill, hard assets and the value of the resources. A discount rate of 5% was used over a 5-year period.

Cost reduction measures (from an average of about $1,200,000 per month to now less than $600,000 per month), dilution control and different mining methods introduced at the French Gulch mine to control production costs have been successful in substantially improving the average grade produced. These measures include more selective mining methods, extraction of newly discovered vein structures and improved vein access. Manpower levels were reduced at the end of August in order to reduce costs and reflect the ability of the operation to produce sufficient mill feed. As more working faces are developed within the mine and people are sufficiently trained, the mining and milling schedules will be modified to allow the production and processing of additional tonnage.

The results of these measures have improved grade from 0.3 oz/ton to above 0.7 oz/ton over the last 3 weeks as shown in the net mill results below and are approaching profitability:

Recent Mill Tonnage and Grades:

Tonnage Grade Gold Recovered
(t) (oz/ton) (oz)

July 1,599 0.26 412.8
August 1,220 0.26 320.2
September (9/2 - 9/8) 160 0.23 37.3
(9/10 - 9/15) 212 0.34 73.0
(9/16 - 9/22) 117 0.86 100.5
(9/23 - 9/29) 284 0.62 176.6
October (10/1 - 10/7) 222 0.77 157.0

At present, the mill is operating 4 days per week and 5 days per week on the following week in dayshift operation only.

Further production cost reductions are expected once the paste backfill system has been implemented to allow more efficient pillar extraction.

The NI 43 - 101 Compliant Report will be available on Bullion River Gold Corp.'s website at www.bullionriver.com on Tuesday, Oct 9, 2007.
