Bison Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BGE) has announced that a drill has been mobilized to the Central Manitoba Property to undertake a minimum 5,000 metre drilling program.

In particular, step-out drilling below and along strike from drill hole OG-09-07, which intersected 34.99 g/t Au over a drill core width of 4.73 metres; OG-09-01 which intersected 36.54 g/t Au over a drill core width of 1.92 metres and OG-09-02 which intersected two gold-mineralized structures of 26.48- and 25.17 g/t Au over drill core widths of 1.25- and 0.99 metres, respectively.
"Positive results from this phase of drilling will lay the framework for an initial resource estimate on the Ogama-Rockland Zone," stated Lucas Ewart, President and CEO for Bison Gold.
