Eagle Plains Completes Airborne Geophysical Surveys on Kootenay-Area Mineral Projects

British Columbia |

Cranbrook, B.C., 05 April, 2004: Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (EPL:TSX-V) has recently completed airborne geophysical surveys on six separate mineral projects located in the East Kootenay region of south-eastern British Columbia. The survey was conducted by Geotech Geophysical Ltd., and consisted of airborne magnetometer and time-domain electromagnetic (EM) instrumentation.

The properties subject to the survey are all owned 100% by Eagle Plains, and include Black Diamond (silver, lead, zinc), Wildhorse (copper, gold), Bohan (lead, zinc), Kokanee Creek (gold), Iron Range (copper, gold, silver, lead, zinc) and Sphinx (copper, gold). The total survey program took one week to complete, and consisted of approximately 1,050 line-km of coverage. Eagle Plains expects to receive technical reports for the projects by mid-May, and will use results of the surveys to help guide future exploration of the properties.

Eagle Plains Resources continues to conduct research, acquisition and exploration projects in western Canada. Through a network of experienced prospectors, consultants and contractors in addition to seasoned employees and a well-rounded Board of Directors, the Company has assembled a diverse portfolio of gold and base-metal properties. Eagle Plains seeks to attract joint-venture participation on its properties, thereby leveraging exploration spending to the ultimate benefit of the Company’s shareholders. In recent years, Eagle Plains has completed option agreements with Billiton, Rio Algom, Kennecott, NovaGold/SpectrumGold Inc., Viceroy Resource Corp. and numerous other junior exploration companies, resulting in nearly 13,000m (43,000’) of drilling and over $5,000,000 in exploration spending on its properties since 1998.

On behalf of the Board of Directors
