Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. Announces Notice of Civil Claim Received

Vancouver BC, August 26, 2010:
The Company is announcing that on August 24, 2010, the Company was served with a Notice of Civil Claim by the Plaintiff, Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. (Rescan). The claim stems from Rescan’s demand for payment of $191,997.54 in outstanding invoices, which the Company disputes.

In May 2006, the Company entered into a contract with Rescan to provide professional services and prepare an Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate (the Application). The Application was submitted to the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO) in September 2009 and was subsequently rejected because it contained a number of significant deficiencies. The Company prepared an Addendum to the Application, which was submitted to the BCEAO in May 2010 and was successfully accepted for Review on July 12, 2010.

The Company has made numerous attempts to resolve the issues resulting from concerns over Rescan’s quality of work, the time it took to complete the failed Application and the fees invoiced for the services. To date, the Company has not received any reasonable response from Rescan, nor has Rescan provided all the drawings, specifications, calculations, files, records, and other documents as required by the contract.

The Company plans to vigorously defend the claim for fees as well as to file a counterclaim seeking damages for professional negligence and breach of contract.
