Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA, January 03, 2014 /FSC/ - Bullman Minerals Inc. (BUL - TSX Venture), is pleased to announce assay results from the first four drill holes completed on its Siguiri Project located in northeast Guinea, West Africa (Table 1). The Company started the drilling program towards the end of November 2013 and has drilled about 6,200 m of the total program (approx. 10,000 m) to date; assay results from these holes will be released as they are received from the lab. Drill holes from the this program along with historic drilling (38,235 m) will be used to complete a mineral resource estimate for the Siguiri Project that will be documented in a NI43-101 Technical Report in 2014.
* All four drill holes intersected thick intervals of near surface gold mineralization that include high grade intervals.
* Drill hole SRC-002 intersected 44m grading 3.731 g/t gold including a higher grade interval of 40 m grading 4.088 g/t gold.
* Drill hole SCO-003 intersected 55 m grading 1.590 g/t gold including a higher grade interval of 9 m grading 5.110 g/t gold.
* Drill hole SCO-001 intersected 50 m grading 0.895 g/t gold including a higher grade interval of 12 m grading 2.473 g/t gold and further down the hole 19 m grading 1.166 g/t gold with a higher grade interval of 10 m grading 2.059 g/t gold.
* Near surface gold mineralization may be amenable to open pit extraction and heap leach processing similar to the nearby SAG mine located 30 km to the west, however additional testwork is required to confirm this mining and processing scenario.

Note: true width of mineralized zone is approximately 60% of interval width.
1S denotes Siguiri Project, RC denotes reverse circulation holes and CO denotes holes pre-collared by reverse circulation (approx. 120 m depth) and continued to the end of hole by diamond drilling.
The first four drill holes of the current drill program were collared on the Shawn deposit, which has been traced for 1.0 km along strike by previous and current drill programs. Mineralization varies from a few metres up to 100 metres in thickness and has been tested by drilling to approximately 100 metres depth. Saprolite development is variable to depths of approximately 60 to 70 m's below surface.
The Siguiri Project covers a 248 square km area and is comprised of three exploration permits organized into two concession blocks, a North Block comprised of two permits and a South Block comprised of a single permit. The project is underlain predominantly by fine grained sedimentary rocks comprised of siltstone, argillite and immature sandstones; felsic and mafic dykes are mapped in the project area. A north to northeast shear zone that is over 60 km long extends across both the North and South Block, and is host to gold mineralization exposed in artisanal pits and trenches, and intersected in drill holes. In the North Block, four deposits (FK, Tinko, Shawn and Fadiougoula) are aligned north to south along part (>16 km) of this shear zone; the Amina deposit is located along a parallel structure 6 km to the west. Gold mineralization is associated with moderately developed quartz stockworks and sheeted veinlets that have been oxidized to depths varying from 40 to over 100 m. Mineralization is open along strike and at depth.
Reverse circulation and diamond drill samples are submitted to SGS Mineral Mali Sarl in Bamako, Mali for assaying; the laboratory complies with ISO 17025 and ISO 190111 operational and quality control systems. The samples were analyzed by fire assay with an atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) finish after digestion in aqua regia. The Company inserts Quality Control - Quality Insurance samples (standards, duplicates and blanks) in addition to samples inserted by SGS to monitor the analytical results of the laboratory; samples inserted in this batch were within acceptable limits.
Andre C. Lambert, B.Sc. (Hons), EurGeol, MIMM is the Exploration Manager for the Company and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Lambert has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this News Release.
