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
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.
