Bullfrog Gold Corp to Resume Drilling at Newsboy Project in Arizona

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Nov. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bullfrog Gold Corp
(OTCBB:BFGC) ("Bullfrog" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a phase 4
drill program at its Newsboy Gold Project ("Project") located 45 miles NW of
Phoenix, Arizona. Drilling is scheduled to start in early December 2013 and
finish before year end.

At least 62 vertical and angled holes will be percussion drilled to depths up
to 60 feet. The program is specifically designed to explore shallow
mineralization that has been identified from surface sampling and
reconnaissance programs, trenches and upper mineral intervals in existing
holes. Below is a summary of holes proposed in three specific exploration
target areas.

In 1985 Labradex Mining Company explored the RUS area by drilling 2,435 feet
in 11 holes and sampling 14 trenches and several historic prospect pits.
Labradex discovered a near surface gold-bearing vein system having a strike
length of more than 2,600 feet and a typical dip of 45 degrees. The Company
plans to drill 15 holes in the areas deemed most favorable and for possible
strike extensions. Significant sample lengths and gold grades obtained in a
Labradex report are shown in Table 2.

High grade, shallow gold was intersected in one drill hole and surface samples
of outcrops and prospect pits in the Queen of Sheba exploration area (see
press release of February 25, 2013), but holes spaced 50 feet from this high
grade showed continuity of mineralization but not of high grade. Twenty
close-spaced holes will be drilled on the 38 acres of patented land and twenty
holes on adjacent mining claims in the Queen of Sheba area. Table 3 shows all
the shallow intercepts drilled in early 2013.

Additional mineral intervals below 70 feet are not shown       

As the S-6 exploration area has several old mine shafts, prospect pits and
mineralized outcrops but no records or evidence of drilling, seven shallow
holes are proposed as an initial test of this exploration target.

In early 2014 the Company plans to analyze all drill hole data on the Project
along with results from SRK Consulting's upcoming technical report to plan a
subsequent exploration and development drill programs.
