Bison Gold Resources Inc. Increases Drilling Program from 5,000 Metres to 10,000 Metres on the Central Manitoba Property, Announces Appointment of Gene McLean to Its Board of Directors

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - Bison Gold Resources Inc. ("Bison Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BGE) is pleased to announce that the company has increased the size of the diamond drilling program from 5,000 to 10,000 metres based on encouraging results from the first eight drill holes completed on the Ogama zone extension. The company is currently completing the fence of drill holes following up on diamond drill hole OG-10-04 which intersected 2.46 metres of 37.1 g/t Au. The company expects assay results from this drilling within the coming weeks.

"We are very encouraged by the significant high grade gold mineralization intersected to date on this program in not only the extension to depth and strike of the Ogama zone but of additional high grade „hangingwall‟ gold mineralization intersected by diamond drill holes to date," stated Lucas Ewart, President and CEO of Bison. "We doubled the size of the drilling program to accommodate additional follow-up drilling on the high grade results received to date".

Bison plans to, with the additional 5,000 metres, complete drilling to test the depth extension of drill hole OG-10-05 which intersected 17.6 g/t Au over 6.55 metres within a 25.64 metre intercept that returned assays of 5.3 g/t Au and to test depth and strike extensions to drill holes OG-09-01 and OG-09-02 which returned high grade intercepts of 36.5 g/t Au over 1.92 metres and 26.5 g/t Au over 1.25 metres, respectively.

All drill intercepts reported within this news release are drill core widths and not true widths.


Drill core was sawed, with half sent to TSL Labs in Saskatoon, SK and the other half retained for reference. Most gold analyses were done using 50g fire assay with AA finish. A gravimetric finish is employed where samples return gold values in excess of 3000 ppb. Screen metallics techniques were used on samples with visible gold. TSL maintains a strict quality control program with standards, blanks and duplicates included with every sample series. Standards and blanks are inserted regularly by Bison Gold personnel in to the sample series at their core processing facility.

All exploration activities for Bison Gold are under the supervision and guidance of David C. Benson, P.Geo, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Benson has reviewed the technical portions of this news release.
