Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd.: Partial Results From Line 1 of the 2007 King Mine Underground Drilling Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 16, 2007) - Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BPM)(PINK SHEETS:BPMSF)(Berlin & Frankfurt WKN A0B75M) is pleased to announce that the holes on the first line (section) of the multi-hole, five line program from the end of the 800 level King Drift, have returned encouraging results. The holes targeted the vein at 75 foot vertical intercepts, and have shown that the vein is steep dipping within a strong alteration zone. This was the typical style of the historic producing veins mined in the past. This structure occurs in an area where no historical drilling has taken place, the King-Bralorne gap, and the zone is open in all directions.

The alteration zone is generally "bleached" and contains varying amounts of pyrite and quartz, and, as will be noted in the following table, the vein undulates somewhat within it.

Due to the orientation of the vein, the intercepts in holes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9 & 10 are very near true width. Holes 7, 8 & 11 should be reduced to 80% of intercept.

Drilling of 5 holes on line 2, which targeted the zone 100 feet east of line1, and at 150 foot vertical intervals, is nearing completion, and has confirmed that the structure continues with strength in that direction. Results will be reported when received.

Drilling of 5 holes on line 3, which will target the zone 100 feet west of line 1, will start shortly.

The 12 hole underground drill program was proposed in September 2006 to check out the Bonanza surface drill hole SB-06-109B which intersected a 1.1 foot vein assaying 11.781 ounces per ton gold, followed 40 feet further down the hole by 1.2 foot vein assaying 7.203 ounces per ton gold (see press release dated July 26, 2006, supervised by Robert Reid, P. Geo., a qualified person as per National Instrument 43-101). It has not been confirmed that we have reached this area.

The drill program has been extended from 12 holes to a minimum of 22 holes and a possible extension to drill 10 more holes to the east and west to confirm the length of the structure.

Assays were done by Eco Tech Laboratory Ltd. of Kamloops, BC, a certified assay laboratory. The method used was fire assay with metallics. The program is being supervised by Robert Reid, P. Geo., a qualified person as per National Instrument 43-101 who has reviewed the contents of this news release.

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 (equalling 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.
