Bullfrog Gold Corp. Comments on Recent Stock Volume Increase

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Oct. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bullfrog Gold Corp.
(OTCBB:BFGC) ("Bullfrog", the "Company" or "BFGC") wishes to comment on the
significant share trading volume that started on October 3, 2013 and continued
through the close on October 8, 2013.The Company does not have any material
non-public information that has not already been disclosed that could affect
the Company's stock volume.The Company also noted that the Registration
Statement on Form S-1 (the "Registration Statement") that was originally filed
by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on
August 7, 2013, was still being reviewed by the SEC and has not yet been
cleared by the SEC, nor has the Company requested acceleration for the
Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC. This registration
statement was required pursuant to the debt facility agreement completed with
RMB Australia Holdings Limited in December 2012 and concerns 7.0 million full
warrants that are exercisable within three years at $0.35 per warrant. As
these warrants have not been registered or exercised, they have not been part
of the high trading volume in BFGC stock.

The Company is also aware of an article published by Herostocks.com after the
market closing on October 7, 2013. The article appears to have been
disseminated through a subscription based email. However, contrary to the
statement made by Herostocks.com in its email to subscribers stating that
Stock Appeal LLC, its parent company, "has been compensated up to $20,000 USD
for increased public awareness of BFGC by a third party," the Company's Chief
Executive David Beling, confirms that the Company did not authorize or permit
the article and was not aware of the article until October 8, 2013. The
Company's management was not interviewed and did not contribute to the content
of the article.

The Company has reviewed the article and finds some of the statements made are
exaggerated and/or inaccurate and may be misleading in regards to the
Company's business prospects and anticipated share price. Given the inherent
risks in the mining industry, the Company does not comment on the potential
value of its share price. Bullfrog Gold urges any investor seeking information
about the Company to review its public disclosure filings with the Securities
and Exchange Commission which are available electronically on EDGAR. The
Company, its officers, directors and employees confirm that they did not
participate in, or benefit from, trading in shares of the Company during this
high volume period. INVESTORS SHOULD PLACE NO RELIANCE ON THE PUBLICATION OR
STATEMENTS THEREIN AND THE COMPANY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY
THEREFORE.

While the Company's management has addressed the particular article identified
in this press release, the Company does not intend, nor does it undertake any
obligation, to monitor and address any other factual inaccuracies, notes that
additional factual inaccuracies may appear in statements made elsewhere or in
the future. Accordingly, investors are encouraged to carefully read the
information set forth in the Company's SEC filings (including, without
limitation, the Risk Factors set forth in the Form 10-K, as modified by the
language in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on October 9,
2013) and not to place any reliance on any other statements, reports, articles
or claims.
