Bullion River Gold Corp Announces the On-Site Start of its Underground Exploration Program at the North Fork Mine Near Alleghany, CA.

RENO, Nev. -- Bullion River Gold Corp. (OTCBB: BLRV)(Frankfurt: BVM) announces the on-site start of its underground exploration program at the North Fork mine near Alleghany, CA.

After weeks of engineering, planning and administrative preparation, Bullion River Gold Corp, a Reno based American mineral exploration company with properties in Nevada and California, is starting its on-site work program for the underground exploration at its North Fork mine.

The mine is located 30 miles northeast of Grass Valley in Sierra County, California and is directly adjacent to the producing Original 16 to 1 mine, which produced over 1 million ounces of gold from about 1 million tons, with depths reaching over 3,000 ft.

Bullion River's President Peter M. Kuhn states: "We are very pleased to start this program which consists of the rehabilitation of a 1,800 ft long access tunnel and a 10,000 ft underground Diamond Drill program. This exceptionally high grade, historic gold producer deserves a very serious look for a long time and our expectations are equally high and demanding."

The mine, which produced about 50,000 of gold through 1932 at reported average grades of over 1 oz/ton, stopped production when its sole access collapsed. It was never reopened. Historic sampling on the three underground levels yielded spectacular grades of up to 41 oz/ton with substantial mining widths of up to 45 ft.

Bullion River's Vice President of Exploration Dr. J. Margolis comments: "We are looking forward to the challenge of confirming the unusual grades and potential volume of gold mineralization with a substantial initial program. Should our expectations be met, we will extend this program without delay in order to fast track the mine for production, which could be started as early as 2006."

In other developments, Bullion River continues its drill program at Atone Canyon in Nye County, Nevada after successfully completing its first hole.

Furthermore, the company decided to terminate its option on the Thomas Creek property. While up to 230 ft of quartz veining was encountered in all five drill holes, gold values were only weakly anomalous and insufficient to justify Bullion River's continuation with the project.

Further information about the North Fork mine and all other projects are available on the company's website
