Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 7, 2016) - Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. (TSXV: BKM) (NYSE MKT: PBM) is announcing its intention to file a Form 25 (Notification of Removal from Listing and/or Registration under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934 Act")) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to voluntarily withdraw its common shares from listing on the NYSE MKT (the "Exchange"). The Company expects to file the Form 25 on April 18, 2016 and expects the delisting to be effective approximately 10 days after the filing of the Form 25.

The Company's common shares will continue to trade the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") under symbol BKM. In addition, the Company expects the common shares will be quoted on the U.S. over-the-counter ("OTC") markets following the delisting, however, there can be no assurance that trading on the OTC markets will occur. The Company has complied with all applicable securities laws in connection with the delisting and is expected to continue to file reports with Canadian securities regulators on SEDAR and with the SEC on EDGAR following the voluntary delisting.
