Bullfrog Gold Drills Nevada Project and Terminates Arizona Project

Bullfrog Gold Drills Nevada Project and Terminates Arizona Project

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., June 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bullfrog Gold Corp
(OTCQB:BFGC) ("Bullfrog" or the "Company") is pleased to announce completion
of a phase 1 drill program at its Klondike Silver Project ("Klondike") located
40 miles north of Eureka, Nevada. Assays from this program should be received
by early July 2014. The Company has also provided a 30-day termination notice
on its Option to Purchase the Newsboy Gold Project located approximately 45
miles NW of Phoenix, Arizona. This termination allows the Company to focus on
exploring the significant potential of Klondike while maintaining its 100%
owned Bullfrog Gold Project located 120 miles NW of Las Vegas, Nevada. In
addition, the Company aggressively continues to seek and selectively pursue
acquisitions and potential business opportunities of merit.

Klondike Exploration Drilling & Assaying

The initial program was planned for percussion drilling 5,000 feet in 50
shallow holes in five specific target areas of the Klondike property (see
press release of May 5, 2014). Based on issues concerning the percussion drill
and requirements of the BLM, the program was revised whereby 1,507 feet of
percussion drilling in 16 shallow holes and 2,885 feet of reverse circulation
drilling in 11 deeper holes were completed by the end of May. The deepest hole
was extended to 400 feet based on observations of mineralized host rocks in
the drill cuttings. Significant oxide minerals of silver, lead, zinc and
copper as well as barite have been observed in most of the drill cuttings, but
mineral contents in Klondike rocks can only be determined by assay.

Drilling and further surface reconnaissance were able to trace mineralization
from the Glory Hole exploration target nearly 2,000 feet south toward the
historic Old Whalen underground mine. The Copper Hill target, located
approximately 2,000 feet west of the Glory Hole target, appears to be a large
stock-work located between two north-south fault systems separated by more
than 1,000 feet of altered dolomite host rocks. Copper Hill also extends south
toward the Cougar Hill exploration target, the latter of which was not drilled
during this first phase program and is located approximately 1,500 feet south
of Copper Hill. Most of the phase 1 drilling did not appear to penetrate the
total thickness of the mineralized zones.

Two lots of drill samples were shipped to American Assay Laboratories of Reno,
Nevada. Assay results from 16 holes are anticipated by late June 2014 and
assay results from the 11 RC holes are anticipated by early July 2014.All
field work and sample QA/QC protocols were under the direct custody,
supervision and management of Clive Bailey, CPG, Qualified Person and Lead
Project Consultant.

Newsboy Gold Project Termination

The Company entered an Option to Purchase the Newsboy Gold Project in
September 2011, at which time the gold price was near $1,900 per ounce. Since
then the Company completed four exploration programs that included 27,201 feet
of drilling in 160 holes to test potential expansions to an open pit mine
proposed in 1992 and at priority exploration targets within 3 miles of the
Main deposit. An independent technical report was completed in February 2014
that showed the project was not economic under reasonably foreseeable gold
prices. Based on the above report and option payments deemed too high under
current circumstances, the Company concluded it was in the best interest of
its shareholders to terminate this project and apply its resources and
expertise on other endeavors.
