Bravo Permiting Drill Program in Eureka District

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBI--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2006) - Bravo Venture Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BVG)(FWB:B6I) today announced plans for a 15-hole (3,700 meter), reverse-circulation drilling program at its Signal Property, which is located in the northwestern portion of the Eureka Mining District in Nevada. Signal consists of 193 federal lode mining claims (approximately 1,500 ha) and abuts the western boundary of Barrick's Ruby Hill mine property.

The Ruby Hill mine produced 670,000 ounces of gold between 1997 and 2002 from a Carlin-style, disseminated gold deposit known as the West Archimedes deposit. In 2004 Barrick announced a decision to re-open the mine to exploit a proven plus probable reserve of 1.011 million ounces (see Barrick Web Site), with production scheduled mid-2007. Signal, part of the Mountain Boy Project option agreement (see News Release NR-06-05 dated June 9, 2005), is one of Bravo's 13 projects along Nevada's Battle Mountain/Eureka Gold Trend.

Historic drilling at Bravo's Signal property targeted shallow, oxide gold mineralization that is exposed along strike for approximately 1,000 meters. Bravo's limited verification sampling contains up to 355 ppb, which is within the range of historic sampling of less than 100 ppb to 2,420 ppb along an unconformity between Mississippian-age clastic rocks and underlying Devonian-age Devils Gate Limestone. Pathfinder elements in Bravo's work are typical of a Carlin-style system, with up to 2,440 ppm arsenic, 119 ppm antimony, and 2.0 ppm mercury.

An extensive database of historic drill data, mapping, sampling, and CSAMT geophysics exists for Signal, which Bravo has compiled into a 3D GIS model. Bravo's consultants conducted detailed geologic mapping last field season, identifing a local basin-facies within the upper portion of the Devils Gate Limestone. Rocks of this facies are locally decalcified and stained with iron oxides, and limited soil samples over this subcropping unit contain up to 110 ppb gold with +100 ppm arsenic and +10 ppm antimony. This favorable unit may be cut by postulated northeast-trending feeder faults, making an attractive deeper drill target.

Bravo's planned drill program includes testing northeast-trending faults that could host high-grade gold mineralization, the potentially favorable basin facies within the upper Devils Gate Limestone, and an un-drilled breccia body located 2.2 kilometers south of the main target area. Historic grab samples of the breccia contain up to 3,070 ppb gold. Drilling could begin as early as June, depending on receipt of permit and availability of drill rigs.
