Bralorne Receives Permit for Development on "Upper BK Vein"

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 25, 2008) - Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BPM)(PINK SHEETS:BPMSF)(BERLIN:GV7)(FRANKFURT:GV7)(WKN A0B75M) ("The Company") is pleased to announce that it has received permit approval from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to commence further development that will consist of collaring a new portal located on the North-East portion of the Lorgan claim block and driving approximately 1450 ft of decline with dimensions of 10 ft high by 13 ft wide at minus 15 degrees to intersect the BK vein approximately 225 ft above the known zone on the 800 level (see News Release May 05, 2008). Upon intersecting the BK vein at the 575 level we will then drift on it. Once the limits of the mineralized zone have been established on the 575 level we will have two alimak raises driven from the 800 level to the 575 level and equipped as manways. Then a sub drift will be driven at the 785 level, chutes installed on the 800 level and mining will commence. With positive results from drifting on the 575 level vein, an incline to the 375 level is also included in our permitted mine development scope of work.

The Company would like to thank our consultant in facilitating the permitting process by providing consulting services between the First Nations and The Company. Consulting with the First Nations included those in the immediate project area and also those following the court ruling of the Tsilhqot'in Nation v. Canada on November 21, 2007.

The Bralorne mine is located 150 air miles from Vancouver, BC. The Company is re-developing the former and very successful Bralorne, Pioneer and King gold mines. From 1928 to 1971, these three operations produced 4.15 million ounces of gold from 7.9 million tons of ore (equaling a grade of 0.53 ounces per ton). Bralorne, Pioneer and King represent the largest historic gold producers in the Canadian Cordillera. The Company remains well funded with no long-term or short-term debt.
