EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 30, 2013) - Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GZD)(OTCQX:GZDIF)(FRANKFURT:G6H) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has received a new independent technical report on its Greenwood Project, located in southeastern British Columbia. The independent technical report (the "Report") was completed by Michael B. Dufresne (a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects), of Apex Geoscience Ltd. ("Apex") of Edmonton, Alberta and has been prepared in compliance with NI 43-101. The Report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days.
The Company's Greenwood Project covers over 90,000 hectares, and includes eight distinct Claim Groups hosting copper, gold and silver mineralization, together with other precious and base metals. Prior surface exploration has included extensive rock, stream and soil sampling together with extensive airborne and ground geophysical surveys across the Greenwood Project. The company has expended approximately $6.5 million on exploration with five separate drilling campaigns totalling 10,363 meters ("m") in 58 diamond drill holes at a number of targets on the Greenwood Project. It is predicted that there is the potential for mineral resources in several areas of focus within the Greenwood Project.
Based upon the results of exploration to date, the Report recommends a phased follow-up exploration program of work within prioritized selected areas of the Greenwood Project. The Report recommends a first phase work program of approximately $837,500 to drill approximately 11 diamond drill holes totalling 2,550 m to test the Dayton claim group, the Ket 28 prospect, and the Motherlode claim group, as well as surface fieldwork at the Mt Attwood claim group. The Report recommends follow up drilling and fieldwork in second and third phase exploration programs to expand upon results to be obtained in the previous phase, with costs for the second phase estimated at approximately $1.112 million, and $1.375 million for the third phase.
The Company is evaluating the recommendations in the Report in order to select the targets and scope of work for a future focused exploration program at the Greenwood Project, which will be subject to financing.
Brian Testo, President and CEO of Grizzly, stated "We are pleased to receive this technical report documenting our initial prospect identification and follow-up drilling. Since acquiring the property in 2008, we have been successful in the discovery of eight prospect areas containing precious and base metals mineralization. All of them are recommended for further work, with three of them selected for priority attention. We are now evaluating these recommendations to narrow the focus to the area or areas recommended for further work that most closely aligns with the Company's goal of defining a maiden mineral resource estimate at the Greenwood Project in the near to medium term."
