Dr. Bernhard Free, Uranium Expert Joins Pacific Bay as Advisor to the Board of Directors

VANCOVUER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 6 2006) - Mr. George Sanders, President, Consolidated Pacific Bay Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CBP) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that uranium expert Dr. Bernhard Free has joined Consolidated Pacific Bay Minerals as Advisor to the Board of Directors. Dr. Free has been an independent consulting geologist since 1993 and has worked in uranium, precious metals, oil and gas exploration, mine development and production for over 40 years. From 1976 to 1984, he was General Manager for Exploration and Project Development for Uranerz Exploration and Mining in Canada and General Manager of the ISL (In-Situ Leach) uranium development program for Uranerz USA. Dr. Free was a Senior Geologist for Cominco and worked on exploration and development projects for uranium, base metals, and diamonds in Canada, Australia, Guyana and South Africa for 10 years prior to joining Uranerz, and he has been an officer and director of a number of public companies since 1984.

George Sanders, President of Pacific Bay Minerals, states, "We are very fortunate in having Bernie's vast experience available to us on a consulting basis as PacBay solidifies its position in major exploration plays in both North and South America. Dr. Free comes to us through PacBay Director Ernie Black, M.Sc, P.Eng., who also has broad Canadian uranium experience and who has been guiding us in our acquisition of claims in the Mont-Laurier and Otish Mountains regions of Quebec. We plan on engaging Dr. Free to guide and focus our uranium exploration efforts in the coming months as our programs get underway. The added bonus is Bernie's familiarity with Latin America, where he will be invaluable in consulting on our sedimentary uranium exploration program in Argentina."

A resume of the uranium exploration experience of all the PacBay team will be posted on our website www.pacificbayminerals.com along with updated write-ups and maps of our exploration projects.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

George Sanders, President
