Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 11, 2015) - Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. (TSXV: BKM) (NYSE MKT: PBM): The Independent Review Panel Report on the investigation into the cause of the failure of the tailings storage facility ("TSF") at the Mount Polley Mine was released on January 30, 2015. One of the seven recommendations in the report was that future permit applications for a TSF should be based on a bankable feasibility study.
The full report is available online at: https://www.mountpolleyreviewpanel.ca/final-report
Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. conducted geotechnical site investigations during 2006 and 2007 on the TSF for the proposed Morrison mine. The Site investigations included approximately 20 drill holes, 9.5 km of geophysical survey lines and over 15 test pits, along with geotechnical and hydrogeological testing consistent with good practice for a Feasibility Study and environmental application. In 2009, Klohn Crippen Berger prepared a Geotechnical Feasibility Study design of the tailings storage facility, mine waste rock dump, low grade ore stockpile, and the associated facilities. The design covered the geotechnical, water management and civil aspects of the works.
PBM is committed to constructing and operating the Morrison mine in compliance with industry best practices, using proven technology and in full compliance with all permit requirements.
