Dr. Matt Ball, Ph.D., P.Geo., Accepts Appointment as Bralorne Board Member

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2010) - Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BPM)(PINK SHEETS:BPMSF)(BERLIN:GV7)(FRANKFURT:GV7)(WKN A0B75M) is pleased to announce that Dr. Matt Ball, Ph.D., P.Geo. has joined the Board of Directors and has been appointed as, Director and Chief Operating Officer. Dr. Ball is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia, Canada, the Society of Economic Geologists, USA and has 30 years international experience in exploration and operations geology. He was a semi-finalist winner of the "Goldcorp Challenge" and subsequently employed by Goldcorp and the overall winner, Geoinfomatics Explorations Inc.

Dr. Ball joins the Bralorne Management team to strengthen the exploration effort to bring this property back into production. He believes the mine property is still largely under-explored in terms of modern exploration, and that there is potential to do what happened at Goldcorp - where renewed exploration in the historic mine resulted in a significant discovery.

The Company is a Canadian junior mining and exploration company, whose corporate strategy is to build shareholder value through the exploration and development of economically viable mineral properties. The Company's current project is a 100% interest in the Bralorne Gold Mine, BC.
