TECK EXERCISES WARRANTS

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert G. Hunter, chairman of Pacific Sentinel Gold Corp. (Vancouver: PSG) announced today that Teck Corp. has advised the company that it has exercised its 1,276,308 Pacific Sentinel warrants in full and that it intends to hold 1,452,616 shares in Pacific Sentinel for investment purposes. On March 4, 1993, a total of 3,320,737 warrants, exercisable at $3.00 per share until May 31, 1993, were issued to former Casino Silver Mines Ltd.'s shareholders when it became a 100 percent-owned subsidiary of Pacific Sentinel. To date 1,485,072 warrants have been exercised. The company has a current working capital position of $5.0 million.
 A $7.2 million drill program is well underway and progressing rapidly at the 100 percent-owned Casino copper-gold-molybdenum property. A fourth drill rig is being mobilized to site this week. The 1993, multirig, large-diameter drill program will fully delineate the entire Casino deposit area. In addition, comprehensive metallurgical, geotechnical, socioeconomic and baseline environmental programs will be undertaken to quickly bring the Casino Project to prefeasibility level status.
 To date, seven holes (Nos. 93-144 through 93-150) have been completed and three more are in progress. Vertical depths of completed holes are 1,282; 1,497; 2,187; 2,047; 1,960; 2,286; and 1,795 feet, respectively. Long intersections of sulphide mineralization have been visually reported for all holes drilled. Assays will be released for groups of holes when they are available, checked and compiled.
 Small diameter core and rotary drilling conducted in the 1970s by previous operators of the Casino Property identified a bulk tonnage mineral inventory in excess of 400 million tons with the limits of the resource wide open laterally and to depth. A 13,000-foot east- west by 7,000-foot north-south coincident copper and gold soil anomaly extends outward from the known deposit. Expectations are that, upon completion of systematic drill delineation, the Casino deposit will prove to be much larger and higher grade than earlier predicted.
