Birch Mountain Receives Significant Aggregate Order

    CALGARY, April 5 /CNW/ - Birch Mountain Resources Ltd. ("Birch Mountain")
(BMD: TSX and AMEX) is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase
order for a significant quantity of aggregate from its Muskeg Valley Quarry
for use in an oil sands infrastructure project. The order is for
500,000 tonnes of aggregate with delivery commencing on April 20, 2007. Birch
has sufficient material in place to meet this order and therefore will not
need to make additional expenditures for blasting and crushing.
    This order is the largest received to date and is an important first step
towards realizing projected aggregate sales for 2007. Winter break-up in the
oil sands region is imminent, marking the beginning of the annual construction
season which normally continues until late November or early December. Maximum
construction activity is usually from the mid-second quarter through the early
fourth quarter.
    With the high throughput crushing spread that is now being erected on
site, Birch Mountain will have the capacity to produce 9 million tonnes of
crushed aggregates and a further 2 million tonnes of uncrushed aggregate
annually. Based on the 2006 Technical Report, this capacity is sufficient to
meet Birch Mountain's projected aggregate sales to 2020 and, if required,
additional crushing capacity can be contracted. Birch Mountain is confident
that it is well positioned to meet projected aggregate sales for 2007 and
