Bison Gold Resources Inc. Announces Preliminary Results of Doctoral Study on its Central Manitoba Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Bison Gold Resources Inc. ("Bison Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BGE) is pleased to announce the preliminary results from a collaborative project between Bison Gold, the Manitoba Geological Survey and Waterloo University researchers. The study focuses on the structural geology and controls on mineralization of the southeastern portion of the Rice Lake Greenstone Belt with a particular focus on the Ogama-Rockland Structural Corridor currently being explored by Bison Gold.

Doctoral candidate Xiaohui Zhui, along with his advisor Dr. Shoufa Lin of Waterloo University, are the principal researchers for the Project that also includes Dr. Scott Anderson of the Manitoba Geological Survey and technical personnel from Bison Gold. "It's an exciting opportunity to have a study of such quality published on Bison Gold's mineral claims," stated Amir Mousavi, CEO and Director of Bison Gold.

Preliminary findings indicate that gold mineralization at the Ogama-Rockland gold deposit are hosted by quartz-carbonate veins that have a close spatial association with northwest-trending, dominantly dextral shear zones and are mainly of the fault-fill type. However, north-trending extensional veins (mineralized) might also have a temporal and genetic relationship with this deformational event. "The relationship between the north-west trending shear veins and the north-trending extensional veins will provide important new information to better aid exploration models on Bison Gold's Central Manitoba Property and the entire southwest portion of the Rice Lake Greenstone Belt including Bison Gold's recently staked Ross River Property," stated David Benson, P. Geo, Director of Bison Gold.

Xiaohui recently presented his preliminary findings at the 2012 Manitoba Mining and Minerals Convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Preliminary results from the Project are reported in the Manitoba Geological Survey's Report of Activities and a link to Xiaohui's presentation at the Convention can be accessed from the government of Manitoba website: http://www.manitoba.ca/iem/mrd/geo/field/roa12pdfs/GS-5.pdf.
