Birch Mountain Resources Ltd.
CALGARY, June 10 /CNW/ - Birch Mountain Resources Ltd. (BMD:TSX Venture Exchange and BHMNF:OTC BB), ("Birch" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce, further to its news release dated April 22, 2002, that, in response to investor interest, it now intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 2,145,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.35 per Unit, increased from the 1,500,000 Units previously announced. In an initial closing of this private placement, the Corporation has issued 881,652 Units for gross proceeds of $308,580. No agent's fees or commissions were payable on this transaction. Each Unit consists of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant, exercisable at a price of $1.00 per share for a period of 14 months, rather than 12 months as disclosed on April 22, 2002.
The Corporation expects to conduct additional closings of this private placement prior to the end of the month.

In other business, the Corporation has formed an Industrial Minerals Division to take advantage of opportunities for the sale of limestone for the production of aggregate (gravel) from its Athabasca property.

The work by independent consultants to resolve inter-laboratory differences in the results of assay verification tests described in the news release of May 14, 2002, has been initiated.

Natural Gold-Silver-Palladium Nanoparticles Reported by Birch Mountain's Mineral Technology Division
CALGARY, June 20 /CNW/ - Birch Mountain Resources Ltd.'s (BMD:TSX Venture Exchange and BHMNF:OTC BB) ("Birch Mountain" or the "Corporation") Mineral Technology Division has identified natural gold-silver-palladium nanoparticles in sedimentary rock. The nanoparticles were observed during transmission electron microscope ("TEM") examination of a focused ion beam ("FIB") section prepared to follow-up the identification of natural platinum nanoparticles reported in the news release of April 2, 2002. The FIB section was prepared from a gold-silver microparticle detected by Birch Mountain scientist Ms. Kyla Arden, M.Sc., in an uncoated rock chip sample using the environmental scanning electron microscope at the Microscopy and Imaging Facility, Department of Cell Biology, University of Calgary (www.cell.ucalgary.ca/CBA.nsf/MIF?OpenPage). The FIB section was prepared from the gold-silver microparticle by Fibics Inc., Ottawa, Ontario, using the "lift-out" technique (www.fibics.com/MS_FIBTEMLiftout.html).
TEM analysis of the FIB section by Birch Mountain scientist Mr. Glen De Paoli, M.Sc., P.Geol., at the Microscopy and Imaging Facility revealed that the microparticle is an aggregate comprising 5-10 nanometre ("nm") sized nanoparticles composed of gold and silver with minor palladium, intermixed with smaller, 0.5-2 nm sized nanoparticles that are believed to be composed of iron and sulphur. The microparticle has no obvious layered structure like that previously reported for the platinum microparticle. The aggregated gold- silver-palladium nanoparticles form an open structure with significant porosity. Further TEM work is required to precisely map the distribution of elements within the microparticle.

Birch Mountain's Mineral Technology Division is actively pursuing the emerging field of mineral nanotechnology which the Corporation defines as the science and technology of the detection, characterization and recovery of natural precious and base metal nanoparticles. Over the past decade, scanning electron microscope imaging of some sedimentary rocks that have only experienced geologically low temperatures has shown them to contain a diverse assemblage of precious and base metal microparticles (micrometre sized particles). More recently, high resolution examination by TEM has revealed some of these microparticles to be aggregates of much smaller base and precious metal nanoparticles (nanometre size particles). The metal nanoparticles occur naturally as solitary particles and in aggregated form as microparticles.

Nanoparticles are recognized in the scientific literature as an intermediate form of matter that is larger than the atom or molecule, but smaller than normal crystalline materials. Matter in this intermediate size range exhibits distinct physical, chemical and quantum properties that may differ from those of either the bulk crystalline state or the atomic/molecular state. Birch Mountain's Mineral Technology Division has developed and submitted patent applications covering processes for and products of the recovery of natural metal nanoparticles.

Corporate: Birch Mountain announces that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to extend the expiry date of the following warrants: 992,383.5 warrants which were to have expired on June 21, 2002, have been extended to December 6, 2002; 408,614 warrants which were to have expired on June 25, 2002, will now expire on December 6, 2002; and 9,782 warrants which were to have expired on June 30, 2002, will now expire on December 6, 2002. The exercise price of all warrants will remain $1.50 per share.

Birch Mountain's technical divisions operate under the direction of Hugh J. Abercrombie, Ph.D., P.Geol., Vice President, Exploration, who is identified as the qualified person in accordance with Section 1.2 of National Instrument 43-101.

Disclosure: To clarify disclosure of technical results, Birch Mountain has established three operating divisions: Mineral Technology, Mineral Exploration and Industrial Minerals. Disclosure under the Mineral Technology Division will not be linked to any mineral property material to Birch Mountain. Mineral technology results do not imply, nor may they be used to infer, economic value. Only when criteria specified in National Instrument 43- 101 and Appendices 3D and 3F of the TSX Venture Exchange Corporate Finance Manual are met, including the requirement for an independent technical report by a qualified person, will results be attributable to mineral properties material to Birch Mountain.

Forward Looking Statements: This news release contains certain forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included herein, including without limitation, statements regarding potential mineralization, resources and reserves, exploration results, research and development results, and the future plans and objectives of Birch Mountain are forward-looking statements that involve various risks and uncertainties.

Tweeter,
The stooges will not win.

BMD fought "City Hall" and won. That cannot happen without a base of standing in the community that reflects a test of time integrity, ethics and moral conviction to stand for what is right. That they could call on those for help during the arduous journey speaks to that which only test of time honor enjoys.

I find it interesting that the theories espoused along this way have/are proven up and the potential for this company that we once conversed are still intact. My DD says we are close and that the last pieces of the puzzle are being put in place. IMO I have two ways to be made whole and the first one is buying this stock at these levels.

Eric Charters is a sceptic yet out of the box thinker who has a long test of time credibility at Silicon Investor. We have wrangled over the Prairie Gold Model for years. Again it comes down to the "Process" stupid. He is a great read.

Respond to of 3345

I worked on the Birch Mountain area for Tintina mines
for two years. My impression from my own field work, and
from other's interpretation is that there is gold in the rocks in that area. This is supported by the following observations by myself.
1. I panned and observed gold from numerous streams in the area. I also microscope work on the samples, observing gold.

2. I crushed and panned limestone in the area, and observed one grain of gold in one sample.

3. I observed rusty mineralized limestone in the area on frequent occasions.

4. Streams that contain gold, are near rusty mineralized bedrock.

5. Other prospectors historically have mined placer gold in the area. This is in literature.

6. Lac MInerals assayed samples for 6 months in their lab in Colorado, prior to taking an option with Tintina. They were in the process of coring rock, and assaying it when taken over by Barrick, who dropped the program.

7. I talked to people from the GSC who had stream sediment and microscopy programs underway in the area, who were finding and photographing precious metals and they were of the opinion that the precious metals had a local origin.

8. It is widely hypothesized that most precious metals deposits in placers have a local origin worldwide.

9. I talked to Suncor and Syncrude Engineers who had tailings programs to recover precious metals from the Tar Sands tailings that they had engineered. They estimated up to 9 dollars gold, platinum and other metals in their tailings. This has to be from bedrock, as the oil sands are actually a bedrock formation. Many undisturbed but unconsolidated deposits in the area from post Cambrian times are in fact rock formations but have the consistency of clay or sand.

10. As an assayer I know that is extremely difficult to assay rock that has hydrocarbons in it for several reasons. This reported problem compounded the perception of the lack of integrity in discovery reports.

11. Other reports of precious metals in oil sands are found in Australia, Russia, Colorado, and Venezuela.

12. The basement fault that runs through the area that contains the gold, also runs through Yellownkife, a known hardrock gold area.

13. The rocks in the area resemble in many ways the silica poor Carlin formation limestones in Nevada. This was conveyed to me by a geologist, Ken Darke.

I still think more works needs to be done, but my suspicions are that some formations in the area may be auriferous and processes would need to be found to make that stuff economic.

It is my understanding that you participated in a independent audit at the behest of the CDNX and Birch Mountain Resources, and that Birch appealed the ruling due to what they claimed was a apprehension of bias. I understand the DECISION OF THE LISTED COMPANY REVIEW PANEL ruled in favor of Birch in that among other issues the AMCL was not acting as a independent technical auditor and in fact allowed Mr. Robert Holland to dictate the outcome of your report. Would you agree with or deny that finding?

Further, are you still being investigated and by who?

Thank you in advance for your response.

"errors in the AMCL report etc." , i.e. "With respect, it is difficult to understand how Mr. Holland could or should possess this "vetting" authority on a report ultimately prepared over the signature of the experts at AMCL - particularly strange is the fact that in its written submissions to the Panel, the Exchange highlighted the ability of the Exchange to seek out the assistance of outside experts when it lacked the necessary expertise "in house". If this explained why AMCL was ultimately retained, why would an officer of the Exchange yet think it appropriate to hold some sort of "vetting power".

It is not necessary to proceed further in the discussion of the claim of an apprehension of bias. We repeat that we have received nothing from the Exchange that attempted to undercut, clarify or interpret these various reported events and conversations. In the end, therefore, we conclude that Birch Mountain has satisfied us of the existence of an apprehension of bias and we are not satisfied that it could be comfortably and fairly remedied,"

Birchrunner,

Thanks for stopping by. As you could tell I was working hard but having fun. I think we will have a beverage sooner rather than later. Those lab rats are great guys and talented top down. IMO they are going to provide a lot of shareholder value in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Three AGM's in a row and I can't begin to tell you the value of that.

The short answer to Ft. McMurray, VIP Syncrude tour, Aggregate DD, and a small, very small property tour (when considering the amount of acres Birch has), would be that V.P Don Dabbs and his thirty (sorry Don)years of affiliations with the Oil Sands principals, executives, and governmental permitting agencies has built a reputation that almost stands alone. I saw first hand the friendship and respect accorded him by a very senior Syncrude executive.

We have aggregate, almost a monopoly of it, because of our location to the Oil Sands projects, and it is in extremely short supply that without it, it either shuts hundreds of millions of dollars in projects off, or the costs get exorbitant primarily because of haul costs. They need it to the tune of millions of tons a year, so say the projections. One way or another Birch will be in the aggregate business and the stockholders will benefit. Glen De Paoli armed with all his degrees and experience met with some aggregate people and for that we are in very capable hands. This IMO put a floor under this stock.

birchmountain.com

With respect to the precious metals issue and this still hasn't been proven, IMO Birch will demonstrate economics and extraction. JV's with the Oil Sands operators if the if's are demonstrated then they must, as any economic additions would reduce the very high costs of doing business.

No question about it, I had fun and business with quality people, gained a lot of knowledge, and saw how these puzzles are being put in place.

I bought a few shares today on the pullback. Don't see how they can lose because their product will be in demand for decades and they will have virtually no competition. I think a 12.00 target is very conservative. Keith
