Bullion River Gold Corp. Starts Mobilization for its
Surface Drilling at its French Gulch Mine

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 4, 2005) - Bullion River Gold Corp.
(OTCBB:BLRV) has contracted Lang Exploratory Drilling, a Division of
Boart Longyear, to conduct its surface drill program at its French Gulch
mine. Lang has started mobilization of its equipment to the site and is
expected to start the 15,000 ft reverse circulation program immediately.

This significant surface drill program aims to confirm the extension of
known vein systems and test new vein systems found by Bullion River. The
lack of systematic, modern exploration on the property and significant
discoveries of additional high grade vein systems increase the
possibilities of the overall potential for high grade mineralization.

Bullion River's President Peter M. Kuhn states: "We are exited to start
this drill program, which will give us significant information for the
overall size potential of the French Gulch mine. The discovery of
additional high grade vein systems by our exploration team coupled with
the known vein structures, which need to be explored for their depths
and strike extensions, demonstrate the urgency for this drill campaign.
The fact that we are drilling within three months after acquiring the
rights to the mine shows our ability to react quickly and the importance
we give to this project!"
