VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 6, 2005) - Bishop Gold Inc. ("Bishop") (TSX VENTURE:BSG), listed on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange") under the trading symbol "BSG", is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 1,600 metre diamond drill program on the Lawyers Gold Project in the Toodoggone region of North Central, B.C.

Drilling commenced on the morning of October 5, 2005 on the Lawyer's property by drilling contractor Hardrock Diamond Drilling Ltd. Gary Nordin is the Q.P. for the drill program and has sited out all of the drill holes.

The Lawyers Gold Project is located 20 kilometres north of the Kemis Cu-Au porphyry mine of Northgate Resources Ltd. The Lawyers property is a low sulphidation sheeted gold- silver vein system which was mined by Cheni Gold Mines Ltd. in the period 1989-1992 with a production of 173,678 oz gold and 3,638,954 million oz silver.

The main objective of the fall 2005 exploration program of Bishop will be to substantiate the gold silver vein intercepts previously drilled on the southern portion of the Cliff Creek Gold zone as well as test two other bulk tonnage gold zones at the North Cliff Creek zone and the M-Grid Sheeted vein system.

In the South Cliff Creek Gold Zone, Bishop will test this significant gold zone with 6 diamond drill holes totaling 1,000 metres of drilling along a strike of 400 metres.

In the North Cliff Creek Zone Bishop will test the southern portion of the zone with two drill holes totaling 300 metres to substantiate previous results.

The M Grid sheeted vein system was discovered by Bishop as announced September 23, 2004 and December 20, 2004 by a trenching program and is located 200 metres to the west of the Cliff Creek zone. Bishop plans to drill one 300 metre drill hole to test the vein system 100-150 metres below the surface outcrops and to test for an increase in gold - silver values at depth.
