Bullion River Gold Continues Its Exploration Program
At The French Gulch Mine, With Visible Gold
Intersected Across The Washington Vein

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - March 15, 2005) - Bullion River Gold Corp.
(OTCBB:BLRV)(FRANKFURT:BVM): Bullion River Gold Corp. has completed 18
underground drill holes in its resource-definition program at its French
Gulch mine near Redding, California. The first 16 holes, targeting the
Lucky-7 vein, were successful in extending high-grade gold
mineralization at least 200 feet below previously mined levels. Assays
are pending for holes 6 through 18. Assays for the first 5 holes were
previously reported and included 0.335 opt Au over 40.5 feet in hole 4
containing 7.7 feet grading 1.184 opt Au and 2.5 feet grading 0.984 opt
Au. Holes 17 and 18 were the first holes that will similarly test the
Washington vein, approximately 400 feet north of the Lucky-7 vein. The
first two Washington holes intersected the vein as anticipated, with one
hole containing obvious visible gold. Further, the holes have also
crossed an additional undeveloped vein between the Washington and
Lucky-7 veins.

Bullion River Gold is currently scheduling a district-wide exploration
effort to begin assessments beyond the Washington mine, the site of the
resource-definition effort. This effort will consist of a rigorous
district-scale geologic evaluation along with assessments of mineralized
areas. For example, the historic Niagara mine about 4000 feet west of
the Washington developed a high-grade ore shoot for about 800 feet
down-dip. This vein and vein trend have not yet been explored. One
historic drift lying 550 feet below mined levels intersected multiple
quartz veins with visible gold, but no mining was conducted. This drift
will be mapped and sampled as the initial stage of the mine's
evaluation. Similar to Washington, the veins at Niagara are hosted in a
dike swarm. A surface core-drilling program is planned for the Niagara
area as well as for step-outs along the Washington and Lucky-7 vein
trends to the east.
