Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. Clarifies Morrison Lake Limnological Data

Vancouver BC, December 6, 2012: The Company would like to provide some additional information on the amount of data collected to support the Company’s understanding of Morrison Lake Water.

The Company has collected Baseline data to support the Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate since 2003 through 2011. Baseline water quality has been monitored in Morrison Lake receiving ephemeral (intermittent) streams since 2003 and Morrison Lake, an upper oligotrophic lake (poor in nutrients and plant life and rich in oxygen), since 2006. Water quality sampling was conducted at five sites on Morrison Lake, at multiple depths (surface, thermocline and bottom). A depth profile including in situ measurements of temperature profiles to confirm stratification, pH, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, conductivity and oxidation reduction potential was conducted. Water sampling included sampling during freshet (Ice-Off) which confirmed that the lake turns over. A bathymetry survey was conducted in 2008.

The BC Environmental Assessment Office website states that “Usually it takes 12 months to gather the required environmental baseline information needed”.

Aquatic resources data included water quality, sediment, fish habitat surveys, benthic invertebrate and plankton, periphyton taxonomy, chlorophyll and biomass; drift net sampling; and fish sampling, including metals analysis.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans conducted annual salmon escapements into Morrison River and Tahlo Creeks since approximately 1930. The Lake Babine Nation conducted Sockeye Spawning surveys in the fall of 2010 and 2011. In 2011, the sockeye populations of the Morrison Watershed experienced a relatively abundant return, however, the total number of Sockeye spawners observed in Morrison Lake only totalled 224.
