Bison Gold Resources Receives Initial Survey Results from Apex Property in Manitoba

Bison Gold Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BGE) has received the initial results from a reconnaissance soil geochemical survey over a portion of the "Pex" Claim Group, which forms part of the much larger Apex Property in the Snow Lake region of Manitoba.

The "Pex" Claim Group covers a significant portion of the Wekusko Lake Pegmatite Field, which is host to three known spodumene-bearing pegmatite occurrences to date. It was determined, through an exhaustive and thorough review of the area, that the "Pex" claims cover an area with very similar geological and structural features to the known occurrences and therefore are highly prospective for the discovery of new pegmatites.

Bison Gold technical personnel collected 265 soil samples from the 'B' and 'C' soil horizons at approximately 50 metre centres over an area of 1.5 km2. Results indicate anomalous rare earth element concentrations in several areas suggesting possible near surface rare earth element bearing pegmatites. "We at Bison Gold are excited at the potential for the Apex Property to host previously undiscovered rare earth element-bearing pegmatites", stated David Benson, V.P. Exploration of Bison Gold. Bison is currently designing a follow-up exploration program based on these results that will include grid cutting, grid soil and rock sampling and detailed geological mapping.

All exploration activities for Bison Gold are under the supervision and guidance of David C. Benson, P.Geo, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Benson has reviewed and verified the contents of this news release.

QA/QC

Soil samples were collected using a "dutch" style open faced hand auger. The sampler would auger down through the soil profile and the depth of each sample depended on the thickness of the soil which ranged from 0.50 metres to 3.00 metres. Each individual 'auger load' was brought to surface and laid out on plastic bags for identification. Where the 'B' or 'C' horizon was identified, approximately 600 grams of unsieved soil material was bagged individually in pre-marked sample bags. Location and other pertinent sample data such as primary soil colour, sample depth, vegetation cover at each site and notes on the composition of the soil material were collected and recorded at each site. Samples were then dried for several days, assembled and transported to TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon, SK. At TSL, samples are further dried, prepped and sieved to 80 mesh following common industry protocols. Pulps were digested in dilute 'aqua regia' acid and the extract analyzed by ICP-MS.
