Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. Announces Conclusions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

Vancouver BC, December 19, 2012:
The Company would like to provide some information on the conclusions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on the Morrison project.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (“CEAA”) and the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office (“EAO”) coordinate the federal and provincial Environmental Assessments under the Canada-British Columbia Agreement for Environmental Assessment Cooperation.

The EAO Environmental Assessment concluded that there are no significant adverse environmental effects. This was supported by an EAO commissioned independent 3rd Party review. The Executive Director of the EAO also concluded that the proposed Project does not have the potential for significant adverse effects. In addition, the Executive Directors’ report stated that the EAO determined that there would be no significant residual adverse effects from the proposed Project on water quality and fisheries resources.

The Executive Director’s report also stated the position of the Federal Agencies. It summarized that “CEAA considers that the issues examined by its agencies have been addressed through project design, mitigation measures and other commitments agreed to by the Proponent. CEAA has produced a draft Comprehensive Study Report that concludes that the proposed Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.”

The CEAA draft Comprehensive Study Report, September 2012, concluded that: “The environmental effects of the Project have been determined using assessment methods and analytical tools that reflect the current best practices of impact assessment practitioners. As a result of incremental changes to the project design and additional mitigation measures and commitments applied to the Project throughout the comprehensive study process, the Agency concludes that the proposed project can be constructed, operated, maintained, and decommissioned without significant adverse effects, including consideration of cumulative effects. No significant adverse biological, physical, or human health effects are predicted. Any residual effects are predicted to be of low magnitude, moderate duration, localized in geographic extent, and reversible over the long term following decommissioning. Taking into account the above, including proposed mitigation measures and proponent commitments; the Agency concludes that the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.”

The Company wishes to emphasize that PBM is strongly committed to continue to work towards bringing the proposed Morrison Copper/Gold Project to commercial production.
