Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. Announces Response To Ministry Of Environment Posted









VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. (NYSE MKT: PBM), (CDNX: BKM.V) has responded to the Ministry of Environment in regards to the rejection of the Company's Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate.

The Company has been working on the development of the Morrison Copper/Gold Project (the Project) since 1998. Baseline data to support the Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate (EAC) has been collected since 2002. PBM entered the Pre-Application stage of the Environmental Assessment Process on September 30, 2003.

On July 12, 2010, PBM entered the Application Review stage of the Environmental Assessment process when the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) accepted the Company's Application for an EAC.

On August 20, 2012, day 763 of the 180-day Review period, the EAO completed the Environmental Assessment Application Review and submitted their referral documents to the Ministers for a decision.

On October 1, 2012, the Application was rejected by the Ministers although the EAO's Assessment Report concluded that the Project as proposed does not have the potential for significant adverse effects and that the First Nations have been consulted and accommodated appropriately.

The Company's responses to the factors that were considered by the Ministers in reaching their decision, (as per the e-mail from Terry Lake, Minister of Environment received October 1, 2012) have been prepared, emailed to the appropriate ministers and posted on the Company's website at the following link: http://www.pacificbooker.com/pdf/121030L-MorrisonEACRejectionResponse.pdf.

The Company wishes to emphasize that the design and environmental assessment of the Project was prepared by qualified professionals who have extensive world-wide experience. In addition, independent 3rd Party reviews, initiated by the EAO, supported PBM's assessment of no significant adverse effects.
