Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd.: Clarification and Correction of May 5th News Release

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Further to the news release dated May 5, 2008, Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BPM)(PINK SHEETS:BPMSF)(BERLIN & FRANKFURT:WKN A0B75M) clarifies and corrects the following:

The term "mineable" ore is retracted, as the definition of "ore" is material that can be mined at a profit, and this has yet to be determined.

The correction is that the 184 foot length for section 1 is a typo and should have read 134 feet of length.

The 2 sections of "ore" grade material reported (0.842 oz/ton across 5.45 feet for a length of 134 feet (correction) and 0.525 oz/ton across 4 feet for a length of 81 feet) are based on averaging the weighted grades from a number of drift faces sampled. The 134 foot section is comprised of 19 face samples for an average horizontal distance of 7.05 feet between samples. The 81 foot section is comprised of 10 face samples for an average horizontal distance of 8.1 feet between samples.

The samples collected are from the drift faces of a 7 foot high by 8 foot wide track drift.

The weighted grade for a face is obtained by multiply the assays of the samples by the width of the samples and dividing by the total width, giving an average grade across the face. This generally consists of 3 or more samples, one or more samples across the vein and two host rock samples, one from either side of the vein.

Where the width of the vein is greater than 4 feet, this value is included in the data for calculating grade along length. Where the vein is less than 4 feet, the weighted grade was calculated by width of vein times assay divided by 4 feet, or "historical" minimum mining width.

The weighted face grades are then summed and divided by the number of faces in the section to give the average grade along the length.

This clarification and correction has been prepared by Robert E "Ned" Reid P.Geo., a qualified person as per NI43-101 who is supervising the program.
