Drilling for Additional High-Grade Gold Intersections
Continues at Bullion River Gold Corp.'s French Gulch
Mine in California

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - March 9, 2005) - Bullion River Gold Corp.
(OTCBB:BLRV)(FWB:BVM) has completed the drilling of 16 underground core
holes totaling approximately 9,000 feet at it's French Gulch project, in
California. The 16 holes represent about 30% of the planned 31,000-foot,
58-hole, and phase-1 program aimed at delineating reserves on the
Lucky-7 and Washington veins. The 16 holes completed to date have
targeted the down-dip projection of mineralization on the Lucky-7
structure below previously mined levels and have been successful in
defining high-grade vein-stockwork gold mineralization, as reported last
week. Four of the first 5 holes intersected at least one interval
grading above 1 opt Au.

Drilling is now turning to cross the Washington vein, about 400 feet
north of and parallel to the Lucky-7 zone. Assays are pending on holes 6
through 16, but core logging continues to encounter visible gold in
quartz veins and massive vein intervals with visible gold as wide as 10
feet down-hole. Bullion River plans to complete a preliminary
resource/reserve calculation after phase 1, at which time a second-phase
of in-fill drilling will then be undertaken to complete the desired
drill-grid spacing of 50 feet on the Lucky-7 and 75 feet on the
Washington vein. The program has the potential to define more than
100,000 ounces of high-grade mineralization.
