Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd.: 2009 Diamond Drill Program Commences to Expand BK Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2009) - Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. ("The Company") (TSX VENTURE:BPM)(PINK SHEETS:BPMSF)(BERLIN:GV7)(FRANKFURT:GV7)(WKN:A0B75M) is pleased to announce that it has received permit approval from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to commence a diamond drill program of 21 holes over 4200 meter on the unexplored portions of the Bralorne-King Gap, commonly known as the BK zone. The BK zone was identified in 2006 from a surface diamond drill exploration program that intercepted 364 g/Au over .335 meters and 12 meters below was another 224 g/Au over .335 meters (News Release Dated: July 26, 2006).

The purpose of the program is defined below:

  1. Further define the BK vein above the 800 Level. A number of diamond drill holes were designed to test the vein above the sublevel currently being developed at the 575 Level and to test extensions to the east and west.
  2. Test parallel structures such as the Alhambra vein and other inferred structures lying both south and north of the BK vein, above 800 Level. This will allow us to confirm the three new interpreted vein structures and test their resource potential.
  3. Test for new structures extending from or between intercepts, in the under-explored BK Gap area above 800 Level and south of Alhambra structure.

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 129 million grams of gold from 7.9 million tons of ore (equaling a grade of 16 grams 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.
