Bralorne Drill Results Show New Extensions to the BK and Alhambra Vein Systems With Noteable High Grade Intercepts of 0.948 Oz/Au Over 2.5 Feet

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2009) - 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 completed a highly successful surface drill program in the unexplored areas of the King-Bralorne Gap ending in December of 2008. The goal of the surface drill program was to test the extent of the BK vein in the Easterly direction as well as establish continuity between structures. This was achieved through drilling and continued modeling of the historic and newly discovered BK Vein.

In addition, the program appears to have successfully extended the known extent of the Alhambra Vein and to have identified three additional vein structures in the King-Bralorne Gap area. The 2008 Drill program consisted of a sixteen (16) hole, 11079.02 feet program including drill holes SB-08-133 through SB-08-148. The goal of the program was to investigate the possibility of extensions to the BK zone discovered in 2007 (See news release: July 9, 2007) and the Alhambra Vein.

Key intercepts of the 16hole drilling program are provided in the table below:

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.
