Bullion River Gold Corp. Plans Bulk Sampling at its French Gulch Mine

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 9, 2005) - Bullion River Gold Corp. (OTCBB:BLRV): Bullion River Gold Corp. has completed the Phase I underground drilling from its Robillard tunnel. While all results for the Lucky-7 vein system have been received, some results for the Washington vein system are still pending. The drilling confirms strong gold mineralization extending below the previously known areas and remains open to depth. In addition to the finished drilled area, Bullion River has identified several high-grade areas that will be explored next, in order to increase the overall mineable gold reserves.

Furthermore, the company will complete a bulk sample of the existing two vein systems to verify more fully the grade and consistence of the mineralization in the high-grade vein systems and to test the functionality and effectiveness of the mill.

At present, the company is preparing long and cross-sections for the execution of its independent reserve estimate, which will be completed by an independent source. At present, the engineering for the bulk sampling and the transfer of labor and equipment is being conducted. All required permits have been received. The bulk sample is scheduled to start on Monday August 21, 2005 and might extend into the fourth quarter of 2005. An immediate change from bulk sampling to production is possible.

Peter M. Kuhn, President of Bullion River Gold Corp. states: "We are more than pleased with the exploration at our French Gulch property and we continue to find more and more targets that increase the overall mineable gold potential. With the mining of this 1,500 to 3,000 tons bulk sample we will further confirm our findings and take another important step towards production. The increasing discovery of gold bearing occurrences by our geological team has grown the overall potential of our property tremendously since we acquired this intriguing mine."
