EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire -08/02/11)- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX-V: GZD) (OTCQX: GZDIF) (Frankfurt: G6H.F - News) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") announces an update to its Greenwood Gold Project, a 225,000 acre contiguous block of mineral claims centered on Greenwood, British Columbia. The Company, with a 100% interest in this project, commenced ground exploration in early May.
Current Exploration Status
The Stage 1 field-based exploration program which began in May 2011 continues to progress. The program consists of extensive ground geophysical surveys including: induced polarization ("IP") surveys; horizontal loop electromagnetic ("HLEM") surveys; Promis electromagnetic ("EM") surveys; magnetometer surveys; prospecting, and; rock and soil sampling. This is coupled with geological mapping at a number of existing targets including: Copper Mountain, Ket 28, and the Dayton area as well as a series of new targets identified by detailed analysis of airborne geophysical surveys conducted in 2008 and 2009. To date, approximately 4,700 soil and rock samples have been collected and shipped to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia. More than 94 line-km of IP surveys (at more than 9 targets), more than 25 line-km of ground HLEM and Promis EM surveys, and more than 56 line-km of ground magnetic surveys have also been completed. The planned ground work is budgeted at approximately $1.2 million and will continue through early August, with results to follow.
Overlander Target Area
A total of 1,306 soil samples and 67 rock samples have been collected at the Overlander target area. Gold and multi-element geochemical results have been received for all samples. The soil sampling, conducted at a line spacing of 100 meters ("m") with sample points every 25 m, yielded 54 samples with greater than 50 parts per billion ("ppb") gold ("Au") and 21 samples with greater than 100 ppb Au. Rock grab sample geochemical analysis yielded 7 samples with greater than 5 grams per tonne ("g/t") Au, with 5 of the samples with greater than 10 g/t Au and up to 37.9 g/t Au. A number of these gold in soil anomalies and anomalous rock grab samples are spatially associated with geophysical and/or geological anomalies, including HLEM and IP anomalies, along with historic workings that have never been drilled. These coincident anomalies represent drill targets.
Land use applications for drilling have been submitted for the Ket 28, Copper Mountain, Dayton, and Overlander Target areas and the Company plans to commence drilling by early fall 2011. Grizzly has planned a minimum budget of approximately $2.4 million for exploration on the Greenwood Gold Project in 2011, including an approximate 5,000 meter drill program.
All 2011 field and office exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of Mr. Michael Dufresne, M.Sc., P.Geol., a principal of APEX Geoscience Ltd. and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
