We study the B-parameter ("bag factor") for mixing within a recently developed heavy-light chiral quark model. Non-factorizable contributions in terms of gluon condensates and chiral corrections are calculated. In addition, we also consider 1/mQ corrections within heavy quark effective field theory. Perturbative QCD effects below μ = mb known from other work are also included. Considering two sets of input parameters, we find that the renormalization invariant B-parameter is for Bd and for Bs.
