Drilling Program Completed

April 22, 2005

Pacific Booker Minerals has completed its programme of large diameter (PQ) drill holes at its Morrison / Hearne Hill copper/gold property 65 kilometres north-east of Smithers BC.

The drill programme consisted of four PQ diameter holes, totaling 700 metres, which twinned NQ diameter holes previously drilled by PBM as part of its 1998 - 2002 programme. The four drill holes were drilled from existing drill sites and were located across the Morrison deposit so as to obtain representative bulk samples of potential mill feed material.

Details of the holes are as follows:

Pacific Booker Minerals has retained Process Research Associates (PRA) of Vancouver to carry out a programme of metallurgical test work - principally comminution (grind index etc) and flotation tests on the core obtained from the drill programme. This work will be directed by John R. W. Fox P.Eng. Consulting metallurgical engineer, the Qualified Person required by National Instrument 43-101.

The metallurgical test programme will provide data for design of the concentrator at Morrison. It will also produce samples of concentrate for testing by Asian smelting groups and tailings for Acid Rock Drainage studies. To visit our website go to
